A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Show Me Show Me is a gentle, charming TV show from the BBC with an interactive website suitable for toddlers and young kids. The show itself, hosted by humans Chris and Pui and featuring their toy friends, isn't actually available to watch outside of the UK, but the site offers a handful of fun activities for your kids to enjoy. It's lightly educational, with some counting games and interactive storytelling; however, Show Me Show Me's primary focus is to foster a sense of wonder and excitement about the world around us.
What's it about?
CBEEBIES SHOW ME SHOW ME is based on a BBC kids' television show which \"explores the magic of the every day.\" It features a small range of games and interactive stories. The activities are very simple and suited towards the youngest Web users, but the slow pace and simplicity are appreciated, compared to some sites that can be over-stimulating.
Is it any good?
With its beautifully drawn watercolor backgrounds and colorful, paper-cut characters reminiscent of Eric Carle, CBeebies Show Me Show Me is a delight to look at. The games and activities it offers are very simple, but age appropriate for your youngest online explorers. For example, in Cloud Hunt, kids are presented with a scrolling screen and asked to click on a cloud that looks like a leaf. When they find it, they're rewarded with a cute animation and a poem about clouds. It would be great if Show Me Show Me had bit a more content, but it works as a sweet place for kids to visit.
