We like to keep the kids young in their media consumption. G is 11, M 9 and we still watch Max and Ruby, Wiggles, Dora, Diego, and Backyardigans. Recently P got a Wonder Pets DVD from the library. Everyone has been really into it. Even better, P got a Little Einstein DVD and our family is "going on a trip in our favorite rocket ship."
I love Little Einsteins. I don't like how some of the kids sing a little slow and off pitch but that's what kids do. It' has all the awesome "Clap with me..." of Dora, but within a music setting. It's awesome seeing lP and B really, really get into it. And all the kids are into it.
In the car they were choosing characters. G claimed Quincy because he also plays the recorder. M was Annie by default because she plays piano. lP is June because she's "good at rhythms except in some things... like music." BTW she is doing great in piano. B insists that he is rocket, not Leo who has red hair and drives the rocket. Yes B, you are rocket.
So mom or dad or L get to be Leo.
