i have noticed that Jake and the neverland pirates is a good show, my son loves that. it teaches problem solving, working as a team, and counting. after the show these crazy pirates sing a song and he like to dance too, it fun for us both.

Most of the kid shows are pretty good, it all depends on what you do with it. If you help them expand on it and utilize the information after the show(s) they will learn more. Sesame street has always been a favorite teaching everything, Mickey Mouse is great for everything as well, Team Umizoomi does a lot of math/counting and shapes and Yo Gabba Gabba does a lot of social skills stuff (like taking turns, being nice to friends, etc).

If you get Nick Jr. also known as Noggin, the shows are great and they have no commercials. i love the no commercials because my son doesn't have to deal with advertisers telling him how awesome something is and then has the urge to want it. Also i noticed that each show either educates them on something they will need to learn for school, teachers them manners and socail skills. I highly recommend it. My son is 2 1/2yrs old and now counts with Dora the Explorer in Spanish, sings with the Wonder Pets, plays the matching games with Moose and Zee. Check it out. Also make sure whatever you do with your child you turn it into a learning game. For example if your driving in the car, start telling your child the colors of the cars, if your walking up or down a flight of stairs count each step, If your cooking teach them the difference between hot and cold, ect................

My 22 month old loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and has learnt many things from just watching it. She knows all her shapes and this is something she sees regularly on the programme. They also count in nearly every programme. I am a big beleiver in learn by play and I reinforce what she is watching with simple games after the programme. She loves to count coins and try and draw circles and triangles. Just remember that any thing a child watches can be a learning experience all you need to do is expand on it.
