A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this website.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this adorable storytime website features a variety of animated cartoons and audio stories for the toddler set. Designed to showcase vintage bedtime stories from around the world, this sweetly simple site lets users watch and listen to stories that are appropriate for their particular time zone and needs. Choose "day" and get a lively tale or select "night" for a tempered, calming bedtime story. Several simple activities, a gallery of children’s art, and a blog round out the site.
Is It Any Good?
You may question whether any preschooler really needs a Web-based television station, but the creator of BunnyEars.tv established the site in order to recapture some of the warm, fuzzy feelings she experienced as a young child growing up in Hungary. (She also was looking for something -- anything! -- to help lull her own child to sleep.) Back then, children’s cartoons were shown only at bedtime and nearly all Hungarian children with a TV watched a cartoon just before bedtime. The site features a collection of charming, decades-old children’s series from around the world with silly, kid-friendly titles like Chapi Chapo and Bagpuss. New episodes of the animated series are added each week. The site itself has a soothing, earthy feel to it, and users can select from quaint animated videos or audio stories and even some gentle folk songs from Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie and others.
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.
