In light of Haiti’s disaster, it seems silly to post something as inconsequential as a two-year old’s favorite YouTube videos. But as anything I would post would be similar to other folks out there — sharing our sympathy for the victims and looking for ways to help — I figure this post would be a sort of “whistling in the dark.”
Anyways — Daniel’s Current YouTube Faves
1) The Old Standbys — the toddler/early preschool stuff. Interestingly enough, most of them aren’t produced in the U.S.
Pocoyo — any episode
Hopla — any episode
Tiny Planets — any episode
Sesame Street — mostly anything, but especially with singing and dancing.
2) Music with da Good Beat with Dancing — most of the official videos are really inappropriate for the preschool set, hence the Armed Forces slant. 🙂
Navy Numa Numa — hearing this is making the Hubby and me insane, but Daniel loves it.
Navy Carrier Squadron “Pump It” — this has yet to get old for me. Maybe because it so clear that everyone works so well together. 🙂
Sun King Hey Ya — from the same Navy dudes as above.
This is Why I’m Hot (Deployed Style) — very silly stuff from two bored Air Force guys overseas.
3) Nikki Apple’s Channel, or What Happens When You Search for “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” on YouTube
Fly me to the moon (2009) — what Daniel saw TWICE before he went to bed this evening
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star — how we found NikkiApple
Zoey — the lyrics are incomprehensible. 🙂
Angel & Sheep — very cute, especially the look on Angel’s face when she can’t help anyone.
Starry Night — cool-looking with music Daniel grooves to, but way too short.
When Daniel’s feeling too antsy to sit down and eat, I open anyone of these, and he settles down. Perhaps this goes against the “don’t watch TV while eating” advice, but — hey — it keeps him still and eating. Always a good thing in this stressed-out mom book. 🙂
