Aisha's Gems: Top 5 Educational Children Shows

"Mommy mommy, there are new characters on Numberblocks.. number 21, 22, 23.. 24..", okay okay I get it, but why are you so excited?! lol 

Aisha, my 7 year old daughter has always LOVED to learn, and even in her free time loves to watch educational children shows with her little brother. As much as her grandmother, her village of grownups and I would love to take full credit for her intellectual abilities sighting all of the various resources and tools we used to support her natural desire to learn, I can without a doubt say that her continuous matriculation at Youtube University/Netflix College has played and continues to play a vital role in her development. 

Some parents, especially newbies, have a fear of their child watching too much television or spending too much time on devices. While this is a super valid and great battle to fight, I have to break it to you that at some point most of us lose this battle at least to a certain extent and succumb to allowing our child to indulge whether its on a cellphone, a tablet or the living room tv. Its okay, we've all lost this battle, the key is to not accept total defeat. Turn your loss into a win by doing a little research and guiding your child to specific shows that can be used as tools in their development.

By guiding their device indulgance, Aisha was reading before kindergarten, recognizing words like STOP on street signs, as well as naming various colors since she could speak clearly. My 5 year old son Sekou, my future lawyer (even though he says he wants to be a scientist) is a math whiz and can out analyze and out reason the best of them. Again, a combination of his natural abilities, support from his village of grownups and lots of educational show binging. 

With an array of shows out there, I decided to ask Aisha to share her top 5 educational children shows of all time, meaning from her very first memory to now.

Below is her list in top ranking order:


"Maths is SO much easier when you can see how it works. 90 episodes bring hundreds of essential number skills to life with big visuals and amazing animation, from your first encounter with One to mini-musicals, classic comedy, song-and-dance numbers and a nail-biting escape from the double dungeon of doom…"


"Kids learning to read should have fun with `Alphablocks', 26 living letters who emerge from the sky onto an empty, white world and discover that if they hold hands and make a word, it comes to life. There are also songs, stories and games to entertain and educate the young ones."


"Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes” is animated series developed especially for young children, ages 1-6.Engaging for babies, relaxing for parents!"


"Vocabularry has a word of the day and he wants to share it with you and your kid! This lively and language loving parrot in obsessed with words. Let him guide your children and teach them new words they can speak now. Each episode is a new vocabulary workshop you do not want to miss out on."


"Akili is a curious 4-year-old who lives with her family at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania. She has a secret: every night when she falls asleep, she enters the magical world of Lala Land, where she and her animal friends learn all about language, letters, numbers and art, while developing kindness and coming to grips with their emotions and rapidly changing toddler lives! Tune in weekly for a learn from home adventure."

Of course I couldn't create an educational children show list without mentioning these channels that are extremely awesome in keeping toddlers super engaged and happy. 

BABY FIRST TV "houses one of the internet’s largest collections of educational resources, nursery rhymes for children, and cartoons for your baby. On BabyFirst TV, your baby can learn everything under the sun, from ABC to Animals, colors to shapes, and s much more through our extensive BabyFirst TV full episodes!"

CHUCHU TV "is designed to engage children through upbeat songs and colorful animations."

COCOMELON "helping preschoolers learn letters, numbers, animal sounds, colors, and more, the videos impart prosocial life lessons, providing parents with an opportunity to teach and play with their children as they watch together."

We hope that this list of positively engaging, entertaining, and educating shows helps a few Bomb Ass Moms, Dads, Grandparents, and any villager in a child's life keep their child happy & thriving.
