My 2-year old grandson LOVES this show! He is rarely still but will sit through entire episodes of Daniel Tiger, responding to questions, singing along, and giving me "Ugga- mugga" kisses. He even has a "Tigey" he sleeps with. This morning we watched the crayon factory episode and when the characters received their yellow crayons from Lady Elaine, he jumped up to get his. My daughter didn't understand why there are such short random songs thrown in, so I had her watch Mr. Rogers on YouTube to show her that he did the same thing. The brevity and repetition of two-line songs of encouragement or learning are wonderful mechanisms by which children can remember. They aren't always very tuneful, but they are perfect for our 2-yr. old. And after all, he is the target audience, not those of us who watched and loved Mr. Rogers on his original show. I find this pseudo- reincarnation delightful and filled with learning opportunities for young children.
