6 Kids Shows that Won’t Drive You Crazy.

As a stay at home mom, I have pretty much mastered the art of tuning out whatever my kids are watching. You know those shows they watch over and over and over. As my time as a SAHM has grown, I have pretty much learned what shows I can tolerate day in and day out. I even enjoy watching some of them. When my bff became a stay at home mom herself, I began making a list of Kid’s Shows that I could tolerate. Some shows are educational and others are just pure fun. I thought now might be the perfect time to share that list with all of you!

CocoMelon

Every episode is a song. Many will find similar songs such as “Wheels on the Bus” and the “ABC Song”. There are other songs set to familiar nursery rhyme tunes that educate kids about things such as eating their vegetables, using manners, how to get dressed or take a bath, and how to count. Other songs are simply for fun, like the nap time song and the dress up songs. My favorite is probably “Do Re Mi” in which the kids learn the notes that make up all songs.

There are other similar shows, such as Little Angels Nursery, but CocoMelon is my favorite.

Where to Find it:

CocoMelon can be found on YouTube or Netflix. You can also listen to the songs on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and other music streams.

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir

Ladybug and Cat Noir

I’m just going to say it: I love Miraculous Ladybug.

Miraculous Ladybug is about two 10th graders, Marinette and Adrien, who turn into superheroes via their magical kwamis, Tikki and Plagg. As Ladybug and Cat Noir, they fight to keep the city of Paris safe from the villain Hawk Moth, who uses the power of emotions to turn normal people into super-villains. While the persona of Ladybug is calm and always with a plan, Marinette is clumsy and awkward; and while Cat Noir is suave and always ready with a pun, Adrien is more careful and private, often unsure as he navigates the world outside of his protected life.

Since this show originated in France, I like to turn on the subtitles or change the language to get some French practice in. This show may feature older kids, but even Isbe loves pretending to be Ladybug and will often try to rope Ade into being Cat Noir (or a villain).

Where to Find it:

Miraculous is currently on Netflix (at least in the U.S.) but since it’s on the Disney Channel in other countries, there’s a big probability that it’ll be moving to Disney+ at some point in the future. Already the Miraculous World special is on Disney+.

Avatar: The Last Airbender

If you haven’t heard of ATLA, where have you been?

“Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Long ago, the four nations lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Fire Nation attacked.”

ATLA is about Aang, the Avatar and only living Airbender, who is found by Katara, a novice Water bender, and her brother Sokka, who wields a boomerang and wit, one hundred years after Aang disappeared. Together, the three of them travel the four nations as Aang strives to understand what it is to be the Avatar. They get into fun misadventures along the way, as well as meeting Toph, a blind earth bender, and attempting to stay one step ahead of Zuko, the Fire Nation Prince who was banished to roam the nations until he captures the Avatar.

This is one of the best shows ever, from proper character arcs to hard life lessons that apply in real life. This is definitely a show the whole family can enjoy together. If you finish the tv series and want more then you can pick up the accompanying book series!

There is a sequel show, Avatar: The Legend of Korra. It’s good, but not on the same level as ATLA.

Where to Find It:

ATLA is currently on Netflix. You may also be able to find it on Amazon Prime and YouTube TV.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars

This made-for-tv movie and its subsequent tv series takes place between the theatrical movies of Episodes 2 and 3 (The Phantom Menace and Revenge of the Sith).

If you’ve always wondered what happened during the Clone Wars, and what happened to make sweet Anakin actually turn to the Dark Side, this is the show to watch. The show introduces important characters such as Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s padawan, and Rex, a Clone Trooper under Anakin’s command. There are also plenty of episodes featuring our favorite Senator, Padme Amidala Skywalker!

Where to Find It:

Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and all other Star Wars shows and movies, can be found on Disney+

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

My Little Pony follows six friends pony friends from Ponyville as they navigate hardships and challenges by relying on each other and the magic of their friendship.

Isbe loves this show and I’ll admit that I can even get caught up in it at times. Colorful and filled with regular Ponies, Pegasi, and Unicorns, this show is sure to capture your little one (and maybe even you).

Where to Find It:

My Little Pony can be found on Netflix and Hulu

Mighty Little Bheem

Despite having no words and only music, this show has fascinated Isbe since we discovered it.

Little Bheem is a little toddler with super strength. His innocent curiosity about the world around him often leads to mischief and adventure for the little guy. Somehow he always manages to save the day and get back home safely.

Mighty Little Bheem is great when you don’t want too much background noise but need something that will capture your own mighty little one’s attention.

Where to Find it:

Mighty Little Bheem can be found on Netflix
