We spent the morning trying to break this child-friendly search engine

Google has some competition for your kids, after the launch of a new child-friendly version search engine: 'Kiddle'.

It's a great idea; parents can point their web browsers to Kiddle, which will only return search results that are safe, trusted and, more often than not, written for kids. 

Search engines - the keepers of the internet - are only too aware of the sinister evils lurking in the darker corners of the web. It's easier than ever for an innocent kid to find something hideous with a single entry to a search engine - so any tool that helps protect them is a good thing. But just how effective is Kiddle - an engine that might look like Google, but has no relation to them. While it blocks off the obvious search inputs, we decided to pump some colloquial terms into Kiddle that any kid might pick up in the playground. 

Here's how it did.
