PBS Kids Video
The PBS Kids Video app by PBS Kids is a great way for your kids to be able to watch their favorite PBS series anytime and anywhere! This app is packed with over 1,000 videos from numerous different series your children are sure to love. Curious George, The Cat in the Hat, Dinosaur Train, SUPER WHY, Sesame Street, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Sid the Science Kid, Word Girl, Arthur, Martha Speaks, Wilson and Ditch Digging America, Oh Noah, Fetch with Ruff Ruffman, Chuck Vanerchuck, The Electric Company, Fizzy’s Lunch Lab and Wild Kratts are all part of the line up!
I watch my two-year old nephew every Tuesday. I drive to pick him about in the morning, and I bring him home that night. It’s about 45 minutes one-way, so that makes for a lot of time in the car for that little boy and twice that time for me. I downloaded PBS Kids Video to see if he would like it. He had never seen Curious George before using this app, and he LOVES it! He is happy and content the entire ride! I was getting him ready to head back home one Tuesday night, and he said happily, “Can we see George again now?” I love that he’s happy during the car ride, instead of being frustrated that he’s “trapped” in his car seat, but I hate that he’s excited to go!
I definitely recommend PBS Kids Video for anyone with a toddler who needs a little entertainment at inconvenient times. If you’re not familiar with PBS, the shows are very good! They teach kindness and education! Definitely, great things to instill in a little one!
