I am always on the lookout for new, interesting, wholesome shows for my kids that also promote learning and the use of imagination.
Dino Dan and Stella & Sam have those great qualities!
Dino Dan is a show that helps children learn about dinosaurs.
Follow the adventures of a paleontologist in training Dan Henderson as he imagines dinosaurs into the real world! Combines live action with CGI dinosaurs! Join Dan as he races a T-rex and a Spinosaurus to see who’s a faster carnivore, makes dancing in gym class fun using different dinosaur movements, and learns all about teamwork from his dinosaur pals. Dan uses the scientific method to gather clues and solve mysteries. Ready? Set? Dino! is an action packed adventure full of discovery!
My son is all things boy, which includes loving dinosaurs. He was so excited to watch this DVD and afterwards he walks around the house spouting facts about dinosaurs that he learned from Dino Dan. I love the fact that he is learning about things that I might not be able to teach him or things that he might not learn about in school. You can see Dino Dan on nickjr.
Another show that we really enjoy at our house is Stella and Sam. Stella and Sam is a show about a sister and brother who use their imagination daily.
Independent, brave, adventurous Stella, has something to say about everything – the best kind of big sister…especially when your name is Sam and your’re eager to explore the world and learn all that it has to offer! When Stella explains things to her little brother, what she says can be plausible or preposterous. And whatever it is she says, you can be certain that it will make you smile. What as Stella, the irrepressible redhead, and her slightly apprehensive little brother Sam take on the wonders of the world and explore the endearing, intimate scenes of young childhood.
My children love the funny, creative ways that Stella uses her imagination and takes Sam along with her. I love the fact that the sister/brother relationship is always shed in a positive light. Even though Sam asks a lot of questions, Stella is never annoyed by it and always finds time to play with Sam and his friends. What a great example for kids! You can catch Stella and Sam on disneyjunior.
