Hi:
I'm new to mommy blogging. I have a daughter 5 years old who I home school. I'm looking for some positive entertainment online and preferably something that teaches character values. I find many cartoon programs unsuitable and wonder if anyone knows of programs that exist on the web. So far I've only been able to find something by a company called Dream A World. They have a wonderful little series called Young Masters Little Wisdom Adventures. Does anyone know of others?
All suggestions are welcome.

i have found this site to be one i feel comfortable with.  for her age, i would stick to these four;  word world,  sid the science kid, sesame street, and super why.  depending on your taste, you may want to veer away from some of the others (due to some minor name calling, teasing, or whining).

my 2 favorites are word world (can view episodes online) and sid.  i'm picky, too.

Yes, I vote for PBS and Veggietales too. Veggietales is Christian based and I don't know if that is an issue for you, but my son and I are not and we love them. The sense of humor and wordplay is priceless.

Mine is ten now and I have been out of it for that age, but I know he used to love Bear in the Big Blue House, you might be able to find that on video.

Some of his favorites were (and some he still watches)

Backyardigans

Wonderpets

Arthur

Dragontales

Curious George

Bob the Builder

Postman Pat

Blue's Clues

Put put

Caillou

Little Bill

Max and Ruby

There were plenty more, but these come to mind

Have you tried zoodles.  If you pay like 6 dollars a month to be able to say what games and activities your daughter can play, but I dont pay for it and have watched my daughter and it doesnt put anything on it that is unacceptable. I love it because they get to use the internet without me having to worry about what they may click on.

Animal Jam is a game done by National Geographic Kids.  There is a free version, but if you pay you get some fun stuff.

There used to be a PBS series called Adventures from the Book of Virtues that was really great.  You might be able to get it on Amazon or eBay.
