We always try to find motivating videos for the girls to watch on the bais of their always-changing interest in order to provide a native input in their language development.
Daddy found a new favourite youtube super star ie. Blippi. I have to admit the videos are quite informative, we learn a lot of specialised English from them. My only problem with it is these videos strengthen the flow of American English in our home.
Daddy found Blippi’s videos as Little L. is extremely interested in big machines and vehicles, like tractors, fire engines, trains and garbage trucks.
The kids fell in love with Bippi’s goofy character at once. In fact he IS funny with his idiotic dance moves and overexaggerated squeaky voice. His videos are mainly educational, but what I don’t like about Blippi is the hidden ads and the “I’ll show you this cool toy, go and ask your parents for it” attitude.
In the last couple of months we’ve been watching Blippi videos on a daily basis, the girls got crazy about them. Blippi has got songs and also some eduacational videos as you’ll see below on the links.
L’s favourite ones:
Indoor play place (about movemnets)
E.’s favourite ones (apart from the ones above):
How apples get to the grocery store
