some things our dd likes that i have found to have some positive redeeming value:<br><br>
wee-sing series big rock candy mountain & under the sea (sooo cheeeezy but she loves the songs)<br>
My 3 year old loves all the ones the pp mentioned.<br><br>
We found a ton of old Rocky and Bullwinkle on Netflix instant watch last night and he really like those. He's also discovered Kipper, which is really cute.
We watch some of these like Curious George (my fav.) and Pocoyo. She also likes WordWorld. We tried Caillou but, she didn't seem to like it. Recently borrowed some classic cartoons like Donald Duck and Bugs Bunny. Watching them now, I found them q. violent with vicious dogs and angry boxing matches. I don't know if its me and I'm just over reacting. Dd kept wondering why Donald was in dire situations in one episode after another. She seemed q. worried for him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I am going to try out some of the others mentioned.<br><br>
Favorite movie of my almost 3-yr-old twins is My Neighbor Totoro. DH and I really love it too! DS went through a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang phase, and also a few that are not necessarily age appropriate, The Sandlot (the original) and Ice Age #'s 1 & 3.<br>
Along with some of the TV series mentioned, the twins enjoy Angelina Ballerina, Bob the Builder and Dinosaur Train.
I lean towards educational TV.<br><br>
Baby Signing Time<br>
He also likes:<br>
The Muppet Show<br>
I'd like to try some Dora and Kai-Lan but haven't bought 'em yet.
My little ones loved Nemo and Cars. I always start Nemo on scene 3 ... skipping the scary part where Marlin becomes a single Dad. Cars is great .... only one slightly-scary scene (the tractor chase) but that never bothered my son and no real bad/scary guys.
Some older kids still like Signing Time.<br>
Reading Rainbow (but be prepared to skip the horrible new version of the opening song)<br>
another vote for Kipper, Caillou, and Charlie and Lola<br>
Bear in the Big Blue House was fun when I was working nights, not sure what kids think of it.
max and ruby (just shoot me, it is sooooo boring!)<br>
bob the builder<br>
cantarima (spanish/english songs and video, very relaxing to watch and great when you're sick)
DS loves Chitty Chitty Bag Bang and Signing Time the most then Dinosaur Train, wordworld, Sid the Science Kid(or as DS calls it Science Kids <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">) has recently really licked watching Super Why Peep and the Big Wide World (Pretty much anything on TVO <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> )
