Twitter’s Vine app is home to some seriously entertaining videos — just don’t expect them all to be kid-friendly. Fortunately, now there’s an easy way to keep those inappropriate videos away from your kids’ eyeballs — without banning them from using the service.

Enter Vine Kids. Launched on Friday, the new app offers up tons of adorable animated videos that are appropriate for young audiences. Your child can simply swipe left or right to watch a new Vine, and tap the screen to hear fun sounds.

“We’ve seen for ourselves — and heard from parents, siblings and others — that kids love Vine,” Carolyn Penner, head of communications and marketing for the app, wrote in a blog post. “So, we built Vine Kids, a simple new app that gives young children a fun way to watch Vines.”

Penner said the idea for the app came about during an office conversation in early January when a colleague said his 2-year-old daughter loved Vine, but he wished there was a separate app for age-appropriate videos.
