LP and Little Man have loved Nickelodeon since they first started watching cartoons and their love has definitely grown since we got Now TV – and they could watch all their favourite Nickelodeon shows at the touch of a button.
The children have an ever growing list of favourite TV shows and many are Nick Jr ones. They both have a love of animation and haven’t yet got into live action shows so here are their favourite Nickelodeon shows, most of which they watch through Now TV:
Paw Patrol – Paw Patrol is without a doubt their favourite TV show at the moment. LP pretends she is Skye and Little Man pretends he’s Rubble and they both act out the pups’ adventures. Along with their other pup friends and leader Ryder – a human boy, the Paw Patrol do anything needed to save the day, each working to the strengths of their characters and always working as a team.
Dora the Explorer – LP and Little Man love adventure so following Dora on her explorations is something they really enjoy. Dora is a great role model, loves her culture and tells great stories whilst also being bilingual! The children’s favourite characters is Boots, Dora’s best friend the cheeky monkey – they always laugh along when he’s making Dora laugh.
Blaze and the Monster Machines – Another great adventure cartoon that LP and Little Man both really enjoy. The show focuses on Blaze and the other monster machines both on and off the racing track. Blaze is the only one to have a human driver – his best friend AJ – and they are inseparable, doing everything together. LP loves Starla, a pink cowgirl style monster machine – we love how even quite boyish cartoons can have characters who appeal to girls too and LP really loves this show.
Team Umizoomi – This is a new love of LP’s that she’s introduced to Little Man. The show focuses around Milli, Geo and Bot who, between them, build and design all sorts of things. LP is a huge fan of bright colours and patterns and this show feeds her love with Milli fixing broken patterns and creating new ones.
Thomas and Friends – I couldn’t write about the children’s favourite TV shows without mentioning Thomas. Little Man has been a fan of Thomas and Friends since he first saw that beloved train and now LP and Little Man will watch the show together, willing the engines to be ‘very useful engines’ and get out of the tricky situations they find themselves in.
So there are the children’s most favourite of shows. What do your children love to watch?
