I often hear parents lamenting about the types of shows their children are into. Either it’s too much, or the character is too annoying, or whatever it is. Children’s shows are definitely a big topic for parents. If your kids must watch tv, it should at least be something semi-educational or, let’s face it, fun for you to watch! Here are my current favourites to watch with my daughter (and they don’t make me roll my eyes or want to leave the room):
01 // The Magic School Bus
“Please let this be a normal field trip!” “With the Frizz? NO WAY!”
Let’s be real. This show is enjoyable for me to watch because of the nostalgia. I used to love watching this show as a kid, and I’m so happy to be able to watch it with my daughter now. And she loves it, too! She’s constantly asking for “bus”. It’s so fun to watch with her.
02 // Puffin Rock
This show is so adorable. It’s about a little family of puffins, and the narrator is Chris O’Dodd (from Bridesmaids/The I.T. Crowd). It’s a very cute show, and very visually appealing.
03 // Beat Bugs
This is a kids show that uses Beatles songs to tell the stories and teach lessons. It’s a very sweet show, and I love being able to sing along with the songs I already know. Plus, it’s really fun to see which of the more questionable (for kids) lyrics they won’t actually sing and will instead hum for. Plus, one of the episodes is called Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, and that’s pretty rad.
04 // Barbie Life In The Dreamhouse
This show is hilarious! I enjoy it because it doesn’t take itself seriously. It makes fun of Barbie for all her careers, and for how long her and Ken have been dating. It’s seriously fun to watch. I’ll give you an example. In one episode the premise is that Barbie is learning how to drive. Then Skipper goes “Wait, weren’t you a Nascar driver?” Yes. haha it’s too funny
05 // My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
This is a really cute show, and fun to watch! Plus, Friendship really is magic 😉
