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.
The grr-ific musical for little tigers and grown-ups alike is back with an all-new show for 2017-2018! The hugely popular Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE!, based on the #1 PBS KIDS TV series, has delighted live audiences on stages across the country. Now, in its third year of touring, your favorite characters are hopping back on board Trolley and coming to your town with Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King for a Day! Daniel and all of his friends invite you for a brand-new adventure in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe where Daniel learns just what it takes to be King.
