When it comes to learning. My kids are super nerds. The other day I handed them a box of chalk and they instantly made themselves comfortable and started doing sums. It just melts my heart to see them like this.
Our kids pick up things so easily nowadays and if used in moderation television can be a really great learning tool.
I remember when Effie was around 1 1/2 she was sitting in the middle of the lounge room watching cartoons and all of a sudden she started counting in spanish. I was gob smacked, she was barely talking at this stage and there she was counting in spanish.
Earlier in the week the girls and I had the opportunity to road test a brand new show that will be appearing on Disney Junior very, very soon.
Doc McStuffins” is an imaginative animated series about “Doc McStuffins”, a six-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic. Assisting “Doc” with the day-to-day operations at the clinic are her much-loved friends: “Stuffy”, an overly proud dragon; “Lambie”, her cuddly best friend; “Hallie”, a jolly and caring hippo nurse; “Squeakers”, an alarmist squeaky toy fish; and “Chilly”, a snowman who spends a lot of time getting check-ups at the clinic. Whether it’s a case of loose stitching, low batteries or a blow-up toy who’s sprung a leak, “Doc” and her pals are always there to lend a helping hand, while imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others.
