Sing Me a Story with Belle (1999)
Kids love it!
I have a 4yr old daughter who absolutely adores this show. I find it quite tiresome but I have to admit, it's not geared to me, it's geared to little kids. It's a neat format that brings all the old stories that we saw as kids back again in a new way. All the time trying to teach some sort of "lesson" eg, always try even when it's hard.
While I find Belle's voice incredibly annoying (It's not the same voice as the movie), my daughter gets sucked right in and before long, she's singing along with her. So it's a great thing to put on while doing the dishes, or something similar. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone older than 5 or 6, but hey, it keeps the kids happy!
Dora the Explorer (2000)
Dora is great!
I have a 3 year old daughter who loves the show. Not every show is great, they are all repetitive however when it comes to small children that helps them to learn. Thanks to this show my daughter has developed excellent decisive skills and puzzle solving skills. While it is incredibly annoying for an adult to watch as the songs get quite aggravating however, the kids seem to just love it. Throughout the show kids are asked to find things to help them along the way. They keep it simple so that small kids get a feeling of accomplishment when they get it right. There is always a little jingle played when they complete a task which makes the kids smile. When waiting for a response from the viewer they actually wait long enough for small kids to formulate a response, unlike many other children's shows. Keep in mind when watching Dora that it is not intended for older kids nor is it intended for adults. As much as we may hate to watch it, small kids love it and do learn a lot from it.
