What's the story?

TEDDLES is a series of live-action music shorts designed to teach young children lessons. Teddles is a teddy bear who doesn’t like doing things like brushing his teeth or picking up his belongings. But with the help of his playroom toy friends, he learns why these tasks are important, and why he should do them every day. 

Is it any good?

The series, which is also available in Spanish, uses humorous songs and puppets to teach young children in ways that are both entertaining and informative. The lessons it offers are easy to understand, and chances are that they can relate many of them to their own experiences. 

Each two-minute installment is short enough for small kids to handle, and lively enough to keep them engaged. As a result, Teddles offers a catchy and fun chance to motivate children to make good choices in their daily lives. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the lessons that Teddles teaches us. Why is it important to brush our teeth? Should we always wash our hands after playing outside? What happens when we don’t tidy up?

  • Is it easier to learn or remember new things if we sing about them? Is it more fun?
