FAQs

What is DIY?

DIY traditionally means Do-It-Yourself and refers to the culture of building or creating things that can be bought. At DIY.org, we give DIY a slightly broader definition.

Our mission is to build a safe online community that kids can use independently, without parental supervision - a place where they can “do it themselves”. Within this community, we encourage them to create, share, and interact with each other over shared interests, without the fear of negativity, bullying, or predatory behavior limiting them. To us, DIY means empowerment. Through our free site and app, we hope to empower millions of kids around the world to become creators, builders, and, most importantly, responsible global citizens.

What’s the recommended age for DIY?

DIY is ideal for kids between the ages of 6 and 13 years. Considering that these are some of the most important formative years of development, we're trying to touch as many childhoods as we possibly can with positive content and hands-on learning.

We aim to encourage skill-building by fostering a healthy competitive spirit and build a community of proactive, self-confident, eager-to-learn, and — above all — kind children. We hope that these kids will go on to become adults that have the same qualities.

How do I create a free DIY account?

You can create your DIY profile on https://diy.org/register. The only details we need are your name, birthday, and email ID. If you have the DIY App, you can use it to create your profile.

Why do I need to verify my account?

In order to interact and share on DIY, kids will need to verify their DIY account. Verification is a way for us to collect parental consent in compliance with COPPA. Once their account is verified, kids can:

  • Join interest-based clubs and chat over common interests
  • Post their creations on DIY
  • Join and host live workshops
  • Participate in contests
  • Earn Gems that they can trade for cool merch from the DIY Shop
  • Create challenges and contests for other kids to try
  • How do I verify my account?

    To verify your account, you will need to submit a video of you and one of your parents saying the sentence “I’m here to use DIY” using the DIY App. Here are some guidelines for when you’re creating a video for verification:

  • The video should be less than 15 seconds long
  • The video should clearly show the faces of both the DIYer and their parent
  • Both the parent and DIYer must be heard saying “I am here to use DIY”
  • Once you’ve uploaded your video successfully, verification takes up to 72 hours. During this time, we check the video to verify parental consent and also to verify the age of the DIYer. This helps us keep DIY safe and free of intruders.

    We aim to encourage skill-building by fostering a healthy competitive spirit and build a community of proactive, self-confident, eager-to-learn, and — above all — kind children. We hope that these kids will go on to become adults that have the same qualities.

    Why has my account verification failed?

    If your verification has failed, it is possible that your video was missing one of these requirements.

  • The video should be less than 15 seconds long
  • The video should clearly show the faces of both the DIYer and their parent
  • Both the parent and DIYer must be heard saying “I am here to use DIY”
  • You can submit a video for verification again anytime using the DIY App.
