''Kodomomuke'' translates from Japanese as "intended for children" and [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin predictably]] indicates {{Anime}} and {{Manga}} aimed at children younger than the typical {{Shonen}} and {{Shoujo}} viewers. Owing to the AnimationAgeGhetto, this sort of media often makes the transition from Japanese to Western audiences with fewer ([[CutAndPasteTranslation oft-lamented]]) changes.

One indicator that a show is of kodomomuke fare is if it spawns a [[TheKiddieRide kiddie ride]] shortly after launch, although given that even shows like ''Franchise/OnePiece'' and ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' had spawn rides, it's not a reliable indicator.

None of this is meant to imply that [[TroperDemographics you]] need to feel [[GuiltyPleasures odd]] about liking anything on the list. Enjoy yourself! We won't judge you.
