Ask Kids is a search engine designed exclusively for young people ages 6 to 12. It’s a free, safe, fun way for kids and their parents to quickly and easily research school topics like science, math, geography, language arts, and history in a search environment that’s safer and more age-appropriate than traditional, adult search engines.
Children are better at “mousing” than typing. Ask Kids was built with this in mind, and organizes search results in a graphically vivid three-panel display that includes SmartAnswers and related images, current events and encyclopedia results.
Each web site in the Ask Kids core search index was selected by the Ask.com editorial team as child-appropriate or as a relevant and practical site for reference and learning. Ask’s proprietary search algorithm then identified communities and collections of web sites linked to the core list, and filtered those to remove adult content.

Loyalty to a particular newspaper or a search engine is usually built up right from childhood, and this seems to be a nice way for Ask.com to try and bond with kids from a young age itself!
