Ask Kids Relaunches With Cute Kids Features

A few days ago, relaunched Ask Kids, their search flavored for children. The blog just wrote about the launch last night. said the Ask Kids site was “built from the ground-up, with our own search technology.” It seems like added a “very strict” list of which sites are allowed in the Ask Kids index and which are not allowed. They claim it is the “most comprehensive, kid-friendly search available today.”

The search result layout is pretty much the same, with a three-pane view, but it does add a more kid friendly design to it. The feature I like the best is what I call, the kids place mat, which allows you to draw and scribble on the home page of Ask Kids. Here is my master piece:

Ask also added what they call the Schoolhouse, which provides learning resources, shortcut links, and reference sites for particular school subjects.
