We do not have a t.v. but obviously have a computer. PBSkids.org seems fine.
Any other ideas?
I have twin 3 year old boys and we don't have a TV but I do use youtube - Peppa Pig was a favourite for a long time plus the episodes are 5 minutes which was about right. Also Kipper the dog and Humf the bear are easy, friendly cartoons for 2+ and last less than ten minutes. My boys also LOVE the different nursery rhymes also you youtube plus another British cartoon called Ben and Holly (by the makers of Peppa - for slightly older children).
We watched one Pingu but I didn't like it because of the strict gender roles with the mom and dad penguins (in the one episode I watched, anyway). Right now DD likes Tinga Tinga on hulu. I like it because it's less annoying for me than most shows, and visually it's really pretty. It's about a group of animal friends and it has stories like "how the zebra got it's stripes" and so on. Does anyone know of any nature shows that would be good for toddlers? I really want to find some but everything on Netflix has all this dramatic music and lots of animals eating each other, so that's not good. Also, I don't know if it's out there but I'd really like to find some about kids in different places around the world, cuz I think DD would love that, but I haven't been able to find much. Oh, I just thought of one--the movie Babies. Maybe I'll show her some clips from that. IDK, I've decided one of the many reasons I like books better is because if I come across something I don't DD to hear I just leave that line out. Also, there are often way more boy characters than girls, so in books I just change the genders when I read them, of course I can't do that with TV. I guess I can't shield her forever, I want to for a few more years, at least.
We're almost TV-free (maybe one 5 to 15 minute video every 6 to 8 weeks) so I don't have a ton of suggestions, but I have discovered Guess How Much I Love You. It's based on a book by the same name. No violence, no whining, no overly dramatic reactions. We were able to find it online, but it may be on Netflix as well. I ran across the title on the Common Sense Media Website which has lots of great age appropriate suggestions...
