Top 10 Favorite TV Shows for Kids

August 2, 2019

When I was a kid, there were like 3 channels.  Maybe 4 at times, if we held the rabbit ears in just the right spot and wrapped it with aluminum foil.You'd also have to have a good signal from your antenna.  Someone would go outside and turn the antenna while you shouted directions out the window to them.

Remote control?  I was the remote control.  I would get up and manually turn the channel.

And TV went off at midnight.  That's right, they played the national anthem and the screen went blank at midnight until the next morning.

Cartoons?  Had to be ready for Saturday morning.  That's when all the cartoons came on.

And TVs were heavy.  I guess it was the bulb or something else.  Anyways, whatever they put inside the TV, it felt like weighed a ton. 

Fast forward to today.  Kids have hundreds of kids' shows to choose from.  They even have entire networks dedicated to kids' programs, shows and content.

With all these choices, it's helpful to see why ones are the most popular and see a sample of what today's kids are watching.

Recently a company called "Kids Know Best" released a top 10 list based on their gathered data.  This will give you an insight into what today's kids connect with.

You can take this top 10 list and use it to help you better connect with kids, understand why kids like these shows and what elements you an bring into your teaching and programs.  Here's the list.
