My Daughter loves Balamory

I accidentally stumbled across Balamory one morning on the Discovery Kids channel and decided to set my DVR to record it everyday for my Daughter. She is almost 4 yrs old and when she comes home from Daycare and we arrive home from work, we sit down as a family and watch it with her. Balamory is a great show for the 3-5 demographic. They tell a different short story everyday andthe children learn each character's song via repetition. The town of Tobermory on the Isle of Mull is gorgeous. I love watching just for the scenery! Let your little ones give it a try.
