"good" tv shows for my 2 year old. Aidan&Sophie'sMomma 2 kids; Hampton, Virginia 1688 posts

i know tv isnt the greateast thing. he doesnt watch it all the time. but it really helps him calm down just before bed or nap. and sometimes he watches it in the car on long car rides.
he likes this stupid show called PINGU. we have cut him off from it because they dont talk. they just make noises and we dont need his speaking halted or whatever because of that show.
he LIKES, blues clues,Diago, anything with cars or trucks like Chuck and friends, and occasionally hell watch Seasame st. he also likes older kid shows like jimmy neutron/
anywho...looking for a "good" "educational" tv show that he can learn from. we have my baby can read. but other than that nothing. any ideas?

Sid the Science Kid is good and teaches science type stuff. Super Why is good and teaches letters and reading. Little Einsteins is musical and my daughter loves it.

Do you have netflix? They have a LEAPFROG show on there... my little boy LOVES it (he's only 7mos but he likes the colors, he laughs the whole time it's on ) and there's always Backyardagains and SuperPets...and you can't go wrong by turning on PBS

My 2 year old loves the shows little bear and Franklin. I like them because they are more like reading a book than cartoons.



Se has also learned a lot from dora/diego, and sprout/sproutlets.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Dinosaur Train, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Chuggington, Franklin.



My children are Disney kids, they watch everything that comes on Disney Jr. I can get them to watch Jimmy Neutron and Fairly Odd Parents from Nick though.

PBS is COMPLETELY safe. It's all Arthur, Thomas the Train and stuff like that *my favorite is Signing Time!* It teaches your kid sign language!!!!

OH YES. he has watched franklin before as well and liked it :) i forgot about that.
i dont really want him to be a tv freak. but he likes watching it sometimes. and i like when he does because he calms down. he has a very good imagination and isnt always glued to the tv. but when he IS i would like it to be something that he could learn alittle from you know?
