My daughter, like everyone, loves cartoons. Most of all she likes the standard, the most popular in our country lately, cartoons – Luntik, Masha and the Bear, Smeshariki, Winx. However, if Luntik can be called useful, then there is definitely no Masha and the Bear. He is funny, funny, but not instructive. At the time when her daughter was still 2 years old, she even copied Action Machines, indulged in exactly the same way as Masha.
Luntik can teach a lot, for example, brushing his teeth, eating porridge, being polite and obedient. At one time, my daughter loved him very much, even bought toys as heroes of Luntik. However, with age we switched to more adult and useful cartoons.
Dasha the Traveler and Diego
Dasha is a girl who, together with a monkey, helps various little animals to get home or is trying to get to a certain place, overcoming various obstacles. In addition to the fact that the cartoon teaches kindness, it can rightly be considered developing.
Dasha often asks children to repeat words, to make certain movements. With the help of this cartoon my daughter learned to count. In addition, Dasha teaches children words in English. My daughter knows a few English words and can count to five in English. Later, we often bought a Dasha magazine, where there are many interesting buildings that a child can do with a mother.
One of the cartoons of this series is also Diego. In essence, Diego is Dasha’s cousin. However, this cartoon is aimed at familiarizing children with different animals in different countries. In the cartoon also asked to promote, shout out the words or show Diego, where the evil monkeys hid. Both cartoons are very funny and lively.
Another interesting cartoon that is useful for older kids – Fixiki. To be honest, this cartoon even explained some things to me. Fiksiki are men who repair everything that breaks in our house. This cartoon is especially liked by the boys, as I understood.
The plot of the cartoon is that fixes – Simka and Nolik tell their friend boy Dima how different subjects work and answer many questions that sometimes even adults cannot find an answer. For example, from where in a refrigerator a frost or as the washing machine works.
They also talk about how to fix this or that device. Fixies fall into various interesting situations that attract children of different ages.
Developing cartoons include short cartoons about Aunt Owl, which teaches children letters, but my daughter doesn’t like them. They are more like lessons. Of course, we often watch Soviet cartoons, such as Cheburashka, Winnie the Pooh and others.
And what kind of educational cartoons do you watch with a child?
