Daniel Tiger is coming to OUR neighborhood!

Every toddler/preschooler goes through “phases”, whether it’s a picky eating phase, a nervous phase, or a frustration phase. Sometimes they struggle to share, to adapt, to listen, or to leave when asked. It’s moments like these that we, as parents, have to find patience and use tools to guide them through the many challenges of growing up. And if one of your tools isn’t to regularly bust out in song and dance from the popular children’s program, Daniel Tiger, I highly recommend you jump on that bandwagon! IT WORKS!

Recently at the dinner table, my 3-year old refused to put a piece of broccoli in his mouth (it should be noted that he’s loved broccoli for years), but as soon as my husband and I put on our best Daniel Tiger voice and gleefully starting singing “You gotta try new food ‘cause it might taste good!” he popped those florets right into his little mouth. These catchy, upbeat tunes have helped us through dentist appointments, bedtime routines, first day of school anxiety, and potty training.

The animated program, which is based on the characters from Mr. Roger’s neighborhood, has won a Parents’ Choice Award every year since it premiered in 2012, and it’s not hard to see why! Preschoolers love the show and the common early learning themes/strategies are relatable, interactive, and easy for both kids and parents to remember in every day life.

What’s even more exciting is that Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is heading to the Balboa Theatre LIVE on Saturday, March 17 for 2 shows at 2PM and 5:30PM!

    My 18 month old son absolutely loves watching Danielle Tiger’s Neighborhood! He is very busy and doesn’t stop ever….. except when he’s watching FULL episodes of DT!! Not only is it a program that has some wonderful and catchy musical arrangements that teach valuable lessons, it gives adults parenting ideas at the same time! There is not much that can hold my little guy’s attention for 30 minutes straight! We can’t wait to see the show live…I know he’ll be a good boy at the theater! 😉

  9. Kelley says:

    My son who’s 3.5 has grown up watching Daniel we have all the toys and books. The lessons and songs learned from Daniel are so wonderful. Potty training, sharing, how to be a good big brother, brushing teeth etc. we met Daniel at the children’s museum several months ago and he still talks about it. 3/20 is his birthday and the show would be an amazing birthday gift!

    I think I’ve benefited more from Daniel tiger than my toddlers! The catchy songs help navigate tough situations and help me to calmly get my kids through different frustrating emotions.

  15. Chaumet says:

    Daniel Tiger is a staple in our house. We watch it every day and I just love it. I have to be honest at a first when I saw it I was a little judgy because I loved mr. Rogers and I wasn’t okay with them making another show. But then when I realize I was actually made by Mister Rogers Neighborhood foundation and just actually watched it I fell in love. All of their sayings and little songs definitely help me with my daughter on The Daily. There is nothing bad to be said about Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Of course we’ve had a birthday party because she loves him so much, we’ve gone to a couple of events where he was at and she just freaked out. We love our Daniel Tiger

  16. Courtney Green says:

    I don’t know who loves Daniel Tiger more, my daughter or I. It’s a show that everyone in the family can enjoy. We don’t have cable so it’s wonderful to have quality programming on pbs that is appropriate for my child! We would love to see Daniel live!!

  17. Danielle Mather says:

    My son Daniel loves Daniel Tiger! He loves singing the songs, he loves baby Margaret, and he loves that they share the same name. I love that I never have to worry about the topic or tone of the show! Daniel Tiger always offers a lesson in an understandable way for my son.

  18. Pamela says:

    We love Daniel Tiger! My 4 year old son loves the catchy tunes and I love he is learning vital skills and coping mechanisms. Can’t wait to introduce little sister soon!

  20. Sally says:

    This show has taught my 2 year old so many skills in the form of songs. Our favorite that we use is the clean up song when it’s time put away toys.

  21. Katie says:

    We love singing the songs to each other – I have even learned some lessons myself!

  22. Karla says:

  23. Brittney says:

    My toddler is obsessed with Daniel Tiger! She says Daniel more than any other word and lights up when Daniel Tiger and his friends are in TV. I think she’ll be so excited to see a live show!

  24. Dana Larson says:

    We love all the songs. I especially love the songs with embedded lessons in them. The song about stopping what you’re doing to go potty has been very helpful in our family. We sing it often 🙂

  25. Sandra says:

    Our family loves Daniel Tiger! My kids love the fun songs and characters, I love that they are really learning from the songs. We sing the songs regularly when the show isn’t on, and I use the DT Parents app with all of the songs to help me remember the words in the moment they are needed!

  26. Monze lopez says:

    My child and I enjoy watching Daniel Tiger because of the encouraging songs, we often sing “It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”.

  31. Bethany says:

    Daniel Tiger was the only show my almost 3 year old watched for ages, and we’ve used nearly every song to help her get through sticky moments. When we had our 2nd baby girl on the way, she and I watched all the episodes about Daniel’s baby sister Margaret and it helped her talk about her feelings. We also read the books and use the app to have the songs on hand when we need them!

  32. Melissa says:

    We love Daniel Tiger! This show continues to teach my toddler about family, friendship, mannners and empathy.

  37. Miriam DiBiase says:

    My daughter and I love watching Daniel for the great life skills lessons. We sing the potty some just about every day – “If you have to go potty stop and go right away…”

  38. Joy says:

    My grandsons and I love watching Daniel. What a wonderful memory this would make.

  39. Ashley Bridenburg says:

    We watch Daniel Tiger together because I believe it is a great mother son experience and we are learning together and singing together. Then we both will give examples of how we practice the lesson for the day or how we can in the future. This is one of the very few cartoons I will allow him to watch. Thank you for being part of my children’s lives and Ugga Mugga!

  40. Linda Polasek Welch says:

    We love Daniel Tiger! It was one of the first shows my daughter watched, that helped her understand things like having a new baby and food allergies. We would love to see him live!

  41. Laura K says:

    My daughter and I have always enjoyed watching Daniel Tiger since she was 2. Now as a toddler I find Daniel addressing feelings and situations that can at times be difficult for the little ones to express and explain.

    Daniel does a great job of explaining how he feels, comes up with a simple solution(s) from his parents and/or neighbors and even a song for kids to remember:) We truly enjoy watching him!

  42. Jenna says:

    We’ve been watching Daniel since my first was born, 3 years ago. She still loves it today and I agree that the songs do work! Lately she goes around the house saying, “mad! Mad mad! It helps to say I’m mad!” Lol! Now my twin 1 year olds are starting to love it too!

  43. Joyce says:

    My kids have all loved Daniel! My youngest wants me to read his Good Night Daniel book to him every night before bed. Every time he sees a train or trolley (toy or real) he makes the “ding, ding, ding” like Daniel.

  44. Jessica Brown says:

    My daughter absolutely loves Daniel Tiger and I feel like it’s taught her so many good things. It actually really helped me potty train her because now we just sing what Daniel sings “flush and wash and be on your way”. Thank you for having this contest, we would love to win tickets if possible! 😁

  45. Corina Gomez says:

    We love Daniel the Tiger , my daughter Asami is huge fan , we will love to win and watch the live show. Is it so wonderful to have shows like this one , for our little ones.

  46. Dana Lyons says:

    Daniel Tiger has always been the number 1 requested show by my 4 and 3 year old girls! With two full-time working parents, the clever, catchy songs that the show has created for almost every challenging situation parents and children encounter have been invaluable! As an adult who grew up on Mr. Rodgers I’ve loved the sense of nostalgia I feel while watching with my girls. We love Daniel!

  47. Jaymi Matranga says:

    Our family LOVES Daniel Tiger!!! The songs are so catchy and help littles with every day things!! So amazing. We also love how it’s based on our childhood favorite, Mr. Rogers! And it’s not annoying like some other kids shows 😂

  48. Abby says:

    We watch Daniel together every morning. He’s as important to my toddler as coffee is for me. We would love to be able to attend!

  49. Teresa Garofalo says:

    My son loves the catchy tunes and we read the books. The week leading up to him starting preschool we read Daniel Tiger goes to school and I really believe it helped the transition. This would be a treat for our whole family! My husband LOVED Mr. Rogers as a kid and loves pointing out the similarities to my son. It truly is a family tradition being carried on.

  50. Sharon solis says:

    We love watching Daniel Toger because it is one of the few shows that teaches toddlers and preschoolers how to interact nicely with others. It also has games and apps that are educational and fun for my children so I don’t have to worry about innapropeiate oe useless content. We hope we win!!

  51. Christina says:

    We love Daniel Tiger because of all the songs from trying new foods, going to the potty and stopping a tantrum. We also like it, because of trolley. She gets so excited seeing trolley around town too.

  52. Keri Regas says:

    Daniel Tiger has been a cherished and valuable part of my daughter’s life and development for the past 2 years, and she is now 3.5 and still adores the show! It is the only show she watches regularly and it has been so neat to see her applying the songs and messages from the show to real life situations. She has developed so much empathy and kindness from Daniel Tiger!

  53. Sonia Joker says:

    Sophia has just started watching tv and is mesmerized by Daniel Tiger, all stops when he comes on❤️I love the lessons they teach and feel connected as I grew up watching Mr. Rogers ❤️❤️❤️Nice to be able to share this wonderful experience with my daughter

  54. Shae says:

    We love Daniel tiger because when my son is acting out we say “are you frustrated?” And it usually makes him worse and he screams at us more. So we sing the song”when you’re frustrated take a step back and ask for help!” Which is even funnier. Thanks Daniel tiger for making the joys of parenting entertaining!

  55. Heidi davis says:

    We love the songs!!! We all sing them when going through the appropriate situation and it helps our whole family out!

  56. Lindsay S says:

    We loooove DT in our house! Same on the “you gotta try new foods” songs, haha. We also use “grownups come back” and “you can be a big helper in your family” ALL.THE.TIME haha :). So nice to have something to pull out when I am frustrated. Definitely helps me keep my cool!

  57. Judy Galindo says:

    My daughter, who just turned three mostly watches cartoons on KPBS since we onlt have the basic cable for the past few years, she loves Daniel Tiger and she has one of their books which I read to her a few times a week, pj’s. She would be sooo excited to see the show and characters in person!

    We try not to let her watch too much TV and that’s why she is mostly familiar with KPBS cartoons.

    Daniel tiger is educational, entertaining and I feel appeals to all kids of all different backgrounds, we love their show!

  58. Jess says:

    We took our daughter to the last DT show and she loved it! We are big fans of Daniel Tiger and even have begun watching Mr Rogers thanks to Amazon. We look forward to the next show and bringing our babies with big sister.

  59. Yuly santos says:

    Daniel tiger has been part of our lives for 12 years. The song is so catchy and we sign it all as family !!! Daniel has taught my children great lessons for everyday life !! It would be great to go and celebrate my little ones bday watching her favorite show.

  60. Brandy Garner says:

    Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood is one of the few shows I can feel good about my 3 year old watching. It warms my heart when she uses “Daniel-isms” in day to day life.

  61. Dana McNeal says:

    We love watching Daniel Tiger together and then finding trolleys around San Diego! “Look mom! There’s a trolley just like Daniel Tiger’s!!!” We love it 🙂

    My son would love to see Daniel Tiger live! And us as parents love all the lessons Daniels sings through his songs. Kid and parent approves!! 👍🏻💕

  67. Molly raymond says:

    We recently welcomes our baby girl and our two year old was having a hard time adjusting to not getting 100% of the attention and sharing toys. We really enjoy watching Daniel Tiger because they touch on those two things quite often. Sharing and helping out mama with baby siblings. Also love that there is no violence or bad guys!!! Love Daniel Tiger so much!!!

  68. Christine says:

    We LOVE Daniel Tiger! I watched me rogers as a kid and we love the lessons and songs!

    Daniel Tiger has helped us ALL learn in this household! I’ve even caught myself thinking, ” I wonder if there is a Daniel Tiger episode on this topic?”!
