We have two toddlers - a daughter who is going on three years old and a son who is going on two. They are very curious and like things that are very vivid. Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can go and/or what movies I could show my toddlers for some good fun education?

I would not let a toddler watch much TV because what they really need is YOU. You will better mould their character than a screen. Read, sing, demonstrate love, and discipline as necessary. Real life experiences beat TV any day!

Definately check out PBS.com. My daughter loved Peep and the Big Wide World, Super Why, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, Word Girl, Wild Kratts, and Dinosaur Train. Also, you can't go wrong with Nick Jr. - Bubble Guppies, Dora, Diego, Team Umizoomi, they are all great! My girl started watching when she was a toddler a bit a day and she loves all of these shows still, she's 6 now.

For television, I pick a few shows a week to let my kids watch. They get two hours of tv time a day and its broken up throughout the day. Good channels are Sprout, Nick Jr. and PBS. They always have educational shows. When your Netflix works again, you can pick shows from a channel called baby first. They teach the basics like simple problem solving, colors, numbers and how to identify things. But yeah, Nick Jr., Sprout, Baby First and PBS are all educational. Disney Jr. is not.

Word World on PBS. Really vivid colors and teaches basic reading/spelling to boot! ;)

Poussinrouge.com - My son came back from school having been told of this site and it kept him going for months!

My son is 3 and we have been watching 'Super Y' on some Saturday mornings since he was almost 2. It's a half an hour animated show about 4 little kids who have a problem to solve, so they read a relatable fairy tale and use words and letters to solve the problem. It's adorable I think, and my son reads the letters allowed with the characters and learns about the fairy tales (which have been changed a little to be more friendly).
Good Luck!

Why not get them involved in games for that age. Use colors, numbers, and alphebet on cards. Take them on a nature walk and look for animals, flowers, leaves, etc. Do arts and crafts with them, gluing, coloring, painting, and drawing with chalk. Set up a kitchen for them to play in with your pots and pans and some plastic plates and flatware to play with. Get out some clothes they can dress up in...yours and dads? Take them to the library for the reading time that libraries offer. Libraries also offer other programs too for kids this age with parent involvement. WHat I am saying is instead of tv or the web....one on one time is best.
