  • My kids love Ni Hao Kai-lan. Its also super cute when my 2y/o says "Momma, watchin Kai-lan. I tineeeze..." Then he has to give me a full recap of the show. "Momma, nnn Rintoo *giberish* dot mad nnn Toleee n Hoho..." Its confusing, but funny

  • My son LOVES Sid the Science kid. I actually find it interesting and it is very educational. It has episodes on simple machines, oral health, healthy eating habits, estimating, and all sorts of interesting topics.

  • Sid is nice because it's science, BUT it's a VERY annoying show. Diego is better than Dora but get on my nerves. I do like the PBS shows like Super Why, Curious George, WordGirl, The Electric Company, and Wordworld.

  • Most of those weren't on when my son was little...actually only Blue's Clues was. He liked it.

  • At first, Dora and Deigo drove me nuts, but my dd insisted that those were the only shows she wanted to watch (thank you, DVR!). She really has learned a lot from them, the Spanish words, the songs, the memorization.. they're great. She also likes the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.. it's not bad, kind of silly.. but I loved Mickey Mouse growing up so I don't mind it. Other than that, she doesn't really watch tv, we're a verrrry busy household- I'd rather have her coloring at the table or helping me than having tv time anyhow :)
