Igniting Curiosity: The 3 Best New Shows for Toddlers

Do you let your children watch television? Chances are you have a lot of memories tied to the shows you used to watch when you were little – Sesame Street, Zoom!, Electric Company, even Fat Albert and The Simpsons. But with a changing technological landscape, TV-watching ain’t what it used to be.

Now, kids consume content through phones and tablets, and TV’s are smarter than ever, with bluetooth synchronization, internet connections and YouTube capabilities. What does this mean for modern youth? Will they smile when they reminisce about their favorite TV show growing up?

We sure hope so! Advancing technology also means TV shows have advanced in a way previously unimagined – now, it’s easier than ever to develop a kids’ show, and those who do often promote essential developmental skills, including literacy, arithmetic, empathy, sharing, and curiosity. Shows like Dora the Explorer are interactive and some of the classics, like Sesame Street, are still around, educating children all across the world.

Take a look at some of these new, modern kids’ shows – they might just be a classic some day!

This new show carries an important message: Failing is good!

Yes! Sure, we want our kids to succeed in life, but if you’re too scared to even try, how will you ever get there? And that’s the unique message in The Stinky & Dirty Show, about two characters who fail hilariously in order to be successful. These funny guys are constantly coming up short, but always following up their mess-ups with another question: “What if…?” (available on Amazon Instant Video)
