Starting today, all content creators will be required to label their videos as either “made for kids” or “not made for kids”. Videos that are labeled “made for kids” will have limited data collection and restrict certain features such as comments and notifications. Targeted ads will also be restricted from running. While creators are required to label videos, YouTube says they will also employ machine learning to find videos aimed at a younger audience.
The company will also be heavily promoting YouTube Kids, a more restricted version of YouTube with content filters and parental controls.
This one has been around for at least 7 years… It is called Toogl.es. What you will find is a very stripped down interface that allows you to search for and watch YouTube videos.

Only issue I noticed, which is not a big deal, is that some of the trending categories, when clicked on, do not produce a result.
