Kid's TV Shows I (not so) Secretly Enjoy...


Let's face it.

We've all stuck a kid's tv show on as a makeshift babysitter, at least once in our lives. And if you say you haven't, I reaaaaally don't believe you!

It gives you time to actually sit and relax for 5 minutes. It entertains the littles while you make dinner, or want to go to the loo without an audience. It was a lifesaver for me when I had two under two.

Over time I've grown to love some of those annoying little characters. I even look forward to watching an episode or two of certain shows.

And I don't think I'm ashamed to admit it!

Hey Duggee

Who doesn't love this show? The characters are brilliant - if you haven't seen the episode where they watch the tadpoles grow into frogs, you are seriously missing out! Loads of adult jokes in this one too.

Small Potatoes

These little potatoes are far too cute. Always singing and dancing about something. Warning though, the theme tune with get stuck in your head FOREVER...

Shimmer and Shine

This is quite a recent addition to Indie's watch list. All about two genies, who aren't actually that good at granting the right wishes.  It's fun, the theme tune is pretty catchy and it really reminds me of shows I used to watch when I was younger.

Get Well Soon

Everyone loves Dr Ranj don't they? He's so likeable! I will happily admit I've learnt a think or two from this show. Nurse Morag is bit annoying, but I think I can cope with her small segment.

Curious George

Indie used to be obsessed with this show when she was little - She could say George at 15 months. I was pretty thankful though, as it's actually really enjoyable to watch. George is always getting into mischief which makes the kid's laugh, and the narrator has one of those calming voices so I find it pretty relaxing. I just wish I knew what the guy in the bloody yellow hat was called!
