A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Kids can learn about anything that strikes their fancy on Ameba TV; from science to cooking to arts and crafts. Some shows are multi-genre, like Einsteinabot, a singing robot puppet that teaches both math and music. If parents carefully select shows that meet kids' particular needs, Ameba TV can be a useful way to cement learning.
The site was designed so that parents would be able to select videos based on what kind of role models and topics they'd like their kids to see.
Products & Purchases
Just a couple of the programs offered happen to have product tie-ins available (Busytown, Gumby, etc.), but primarily, shows are learning- and fun-focused and don't push for any further purchases.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Ameba TV offers a range of unique programming for kids, viewable online or through devices like Roku, Google TV, and Xbox 360. Parents can easily further customize exactly which shows their kids can watch by creating profiles for each child. It's a nice mix of educational and entertaining programming with no commercials or product tie-ins, which can be hard to avoid on network television.

Is It Any Good?
Ameba TV offers a well-curated compilation of unique programming for kids that includes over 100 shows to choose from. From the laid-back, hip song stylings of Gustafer Yellowgold to classics like Gumby and Casper the Friendly Ghost, there's something for every kid to appreciate.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
