What's the story?

SUPER SIMPLE SONGS animates classic and original preschool songs and rhymes with cartoons and puppetry. The videos' characters sing, recite, and act out the lyrics, incorporating educational concepts such as letters, numbers, and colors. The songs are available in audio format as well.

Is it any good?

This channel is the equivalent of a two-dimensional kids' album, offering visual stimulation along with audio. Many of the rhymes and songs will be familiar to kids, but others are new, adding some potential new favorites to the rotation. Similarly the variation in animation and characters keeps the content from getting stale, and the bounty of learning skills ensures the time isn't poorly spent.

Super Simple Songs makes it easy to control little kids' screen time as well. Most standalone videos run only a few minutes in length, and some group multiple videos together for longer sessions.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about music. Do your kids like to sing? Do you ever sing together? How does listening to music make you feel?

  • What are your family's rules about screen time? How do you monitor them? What are some of your kids' screen-free activities?

  • Parents can use this series to build on the concepts introduced in the songs. Find things to count in the house, or identify letters on signs. Play the color game, or sing the songs and rhymes you hear on the show.
