So my little one just turned 3 on the weekend.
She has begun her "why?" phase and I'm looking to upgrade her entertainment options. We're cord-cutters, so all we have is Netflix and YouTube as options. Please recommend good shows available via those means for a little inquisitive mind. Bonus if they don't drive mom and dad completely up the wall! Oh, and I'm in Canada, in case that makes a difference.
I'm trying to ween her off of those dumb YouTube toy shows where it's just some pair of hands with a thick accent opening up Tsum Tsums.
So far, some of my favorites that we've found are:
Sarah and Duck (love this one so much. There's nonsense in it, but it's of the Alice-in-Wonderland variety, not the baby babble variety)
Paw Patrol (I thought I would hate it, but it's inoffensive, and you could do much worse that cutify and glamorize first responders and the like.)
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood (How can you hate on Fred Roger's legacy!)
PJ Masks (Not high on education value, but it's baby's first Avengers, basically, so it gets a pass from this nerdy daddy. Plus I got her the plush toys and she absolutely loves them!)
Sesame Street highlights on YouTube (minus Elmo if I can help it)
Some of the ones I don't care for too much are:
Caillou (Clearly written by adults who don't actually know how children talk or act)
Elmo's World (Sesame Street is great, but anything Elmo-centric is grating, plus I'm not a fan of the infantile language)
Teletubbies (I don't want her picking up the Gibberish talk just as her language is developing)
Baby Jake (again, too many nonsense words, plus every episode is exactly the same, with slight variation, with a 10 minutes intro. No educational value at all.)
So, now that you know my tastes, please let me know what else is worth checking out!
