Phil Bradley: »This is a search site designed for kids by librarians, with kid-friendly results. It was bright and welcoming, with links to pictures, sound and video, as well as links to a Dewey based and category based search. Very neat! ‘Dogging’ gave me nothing, with a message simply saying ‘There were 0 results. Search Again...’. Sadly unhelpful I thought - surely this would be a perfect time to explain to children how best to search and what to do in order to improve the search? Same thing with my bird results, and with my schoolgirl result. Really KidsClick? You couldn’t find anything suitable? So I’d have to really ask if ‘kid-friendly results’ mean what I think they should mean! The image search option simply opened up a page of links to other image sites, and the video option simply returned a very unwelcoming ‘Search Error’ screen. Hopeless. I was very disappointed with this engine.« Source
