As a parent, I am constantly juggling that fine line of “how much is too much screen time” and “is this show age appropriate for my child”. With a five and seven year old, it’s becoming even more of a battle as they can now navigate the streaming devices better than I can.
When they were toddlers, I remember feeling safe with shows like Dora the Explorer, Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. I felt secure turning on an episode and (dare I say it?) tuning out a bit.
That feeling came back when I recently watched an episode from Amazon’s original series, Tumble Leaf, which is set to debut Season 2 tomorrow through Amazon Prime. Tumble Leaf features Fig, a delightfully curious blue fox, and his best, wiggliest caterpillar friend Stick as they embark on new nature-filled adventures and discover science through play! It’s a great start to lifelong creative learning!
This show is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. The music and soundtrack is soft and appealing to ears of all ages. The stop-animation is fun for little kids to watch and the content is educational and entertaining. Miss E, who is probably close to aging out of the target audience, was totally engrossed in the first episode, which was all about butterflies, her favorite “bug”.
As parents of little ones are contemplating letting them watch their first TV program, I think this would be a sound choice. If you watch it, let me know what you think!
