Kid-centric streaming service Yippee makes its debut

In an already crowded streaming market, another entry makes its debut this week. Only this time, kids are the focus.

Streaming service Yippee, targeted towards kids aged 2 to 15, is now available. And in a world where many parents cringe thinking about what might be found on YouTube recommendations when their kids commandeer the phone, Yippee promises peace of mind.

The streaming services features zero advertisements and has shows like VeggieTales and selected YouTube shows plus original content like This Cosmic Planet where surfer and amateur adventurer Christian Yeager takes kids on a tour of some of the most incredible places on Earth, Backseat Drivers, which is essentially Top Gear for kids, and Pete & Penelope, a series that helps kids understand their feelings and develop social skills.

A glimpse through some of the available content yields a variety of options, with cooking shows, math and science shows, music shows, and more. There’s some faith-based programming, but only a small bit. Overall, the service seems to tout “character building” content.

Of course, if there are no commercials, the money has to come from somewhere, so Yippee isn’t free. It’s $7.99 a month, which still lands squarely on the lower side of paid streaming platforms. There is a free 7-day trial to test drive things and using the promo code NOSASS gets you 50% off the first two months.
