2 years ago when my oldest son was still a toddler I loved sitting with him at the computer and watching videos on Youtube. Eventually it got to the point where I didn’t want to sit at the computer and watch the same videos over and over again (kids love repetition) or I’d have something to tend to & have to leave him for a moment. I got a clever idea and I started making playlists! This way I could push the button and all the videos he loved watching would play in a row. He was happy and entertained and I could vacuum or pick up real quick.
Fast forward to the present and I’m now here with 3 kids. The baby doesn’t watch too many videos on Youtube but my boys, now 4 & 2, do. In fact now they can watch Youtube videos on our smartphones, tablets, TV, as well as the computer! Only problem? It’s very tedious to go through Youtube & find videos that are appropriate for them & that I know is something that will capture their attention.
Because both boys absolutely love building and are just starting to really get into LEGO® I was excited to learn about the Official LEGO® channel. Kids get to go behind the scenes, be inspired, entertained, and see the newest LEGO® video shorts. They have over 500 videos uploaded with tons of different themes such as:
- LEGO® Star Wars™
- LEGO® DC Universe™ Super Heroes
- LEGO® Friends
- LEGO® DUPLO® Cars™
- LEGO® DUPLO® Disney Princess™
- LEGO® DUPLO®
- and many more.
Building a playlist with the videos from official LEGO® channel is a great way to know your kids aren’t watching things they are not supposed to. It can also keep them entertained when you’re out and about grocery shopping, at the doctor’s office, or even just hanging out at home.
