It's been a year since I posted about our "commercial-free" approach to TV for the girls. Since then, we've had to increase the variety available to the girls so apart from the shows on iTunes (Cat in the Hat and Backyardigans), we also got a Netflix subscription.
Netflix Canada is nowhere as robust as Netflix US, but there's a decent enough selection of kids' shows available. Here's a listing of shows the girls love and request for regularly - so far we've avoided Dora and Diego for which I am eternally grateful
Leapfrog Phonics Farm - My favorite and a great aid to the girls' alphabet learnings. I wish there was more than one episode available on Netflix
Caillou - Some preschooler kid with the most-patient, non-yelling mother ever. Definitely a TV mom.
Harold and The Purple Crayon - a kid who draws things with a purple crayon and brings them to life. It's ok I guess
Pingu - a penguin who makes strange sounds. I don't get it but apparently Spice does because she's just full of belly laughs watching this
Sesame Street - Only watch a couple of times. I personally can't get over the fact that Mr Snuffleupagus is no longer imaginary. I mean, what is this world coming to!?
