What is not to love with Curious George? He is always getting into something....but always comes out learning a lesson or skill. This is a great show for toddlers, because it is very simple and the stories are perfect for a small child. In between the two stories, it includes real kids learning about what Curious George just did. This is perfect because my kids love watching other kids, and it inspires them to be Curious about their world!
Brilliant, cute, and funny...perfect recipe for kids' show
My 3 year old son absolutely LOVES this show and has for a long time now. I have over 25 episodes recorded on my DVR so he can watch it at anytime of the day. It's very educational and my son has learned so much from watching. We've even tried to duplicate some of the "experiments" that are done by real live kids at the end of each segment. I give this show two very enthusiastic thumbs up!!
This is the only show that really gives you the world from a toddler's perspective. From George's inability to speak, to his struggle to understand things around him that everyone else takes for granted, he IS a toddler and this allows the show to extend great empathy to its misunderstood viewership. I'm puzzled by the review that regards it as consumerism that the show has its origin in books; I consider that a literacy tie-in. Consumerism is a shallow link between the character and a product they want us to buy (i.e. Dora on a sippy cup). No one is pushing Curious George books on us via the TV show, but it sure does help instill a love of reading when the same characters (Pooh, etc) show up in book form.
This is a fun show appropriate for all ages. George gets into some trouble sometimes and in the process teaches lessons about math, social behavior, language, etc. My kids (2 and 4) love it and often laugh out loud at George's silly antics.
My 3 year old daughter... LOVES George, and it's one of the few things that will entrance her... I always say she channels him on a daily basis... very sweet stories...one or two episodes have had some scary elements that have upset my daughter, but overall it's a safe bet.
My 3 year old daughter is always in the mood for good ole George. She has learned so much already about a variety of things from simply watching this show. One of her favorite things to do now is make compost like George. She wants to paint like George, and mix the colors to make new colors just like him. If a parent is looking for good clean educational fun, then this is it.
I think this is one of the best kids shows available. Even George's language helps kids to learn from the nuances of faces, bodies, and tone. Very funny. My grandson, the sophisticated 3 year old, will often ignore the beginning, but is ALWAYS drawn in. Odd...maybe I should rate it for adults!
