My 2 year old enjoys watching Daniel Tiger on occasion. I like it for the handy songs and friendly reminders of behavior. That said, we both enjoy the Daniel Tiger's Day & Night app! We went through it a few times together, but now he knows what to do (though he doesn't stick to the prescribed order, which is fine, as that's not the order we have our routines in, anyway). He is obsessed with brushing Daniel's teeth!
This app was a FREEbie so I took the chance and it was a good decision. Although this APP is probably designed for Preschoolers to perhaps Pre-K to do independently, I found it a great way to interact with my 14 month old grandson. Daniel must get ready to start his day. Simple verbal cues to touch items or do actions bring your child along as Daniel heads off to school. My grandson doesn't have all the coordination to play along quite yet, but he loves to listen and watch as we help Daniel wake up, eat breakfast ( which we prepare), brush his teeth and get dressed. My grandson knows to touch the screen to zip Daniels sweater, move the toothbrush and make Daniel jump in his colorful sneakers. And when it's time to go to bed, we have fun soaping Daniel's head at bathtime and reading a bedtime story. All I have to say to my grandson is, " Want to play Daniel?" and his face lights up waiting to touch the bright sun ( or moon) on the screen and begin his adventures with Daniel. This is a grow with your child APP. I can see my grandson eventually playing independently and enjoying it even more. Graphics, color, audio and intuitive play are great. It's just like the show itself. (Played on Kindle Fire HDX 8.9).
I have two boys under 5 who have both had speech delay issues. Daniel Tiger - both the show on PBS and these apps - have made a tremendous difference in our every day lives and I can't recommend them highly enough. The idea is simple: everybody from the old neighborhood of make believe on Mr Rogers grew up and had kids of their own. So Daniel Striped Tiger had Daniel Tiger, X the owl is raising his nephew O, Henrietta Kitty Kat had Katerina, etc. It's animated rather than live action but I swear I hear a hint of Fred Roger's voice. So the new generation is all in preschool and face the same issues as our kids do - learning how to do a bedtime routine, how to cope when angry, how to share and so on. For each situation a little jingle is sung as they figure it out. Parents: memorize those jingles. Seriously. This particular app deals with morning and night routines. So we sing: Bathtime, brush teeth, Pjs, story and song and off to bed. Or: clothes on, eat breakfast, brush teeth, put on shoes and off to school. Now the kids get a ton more to do in the app, like help set the table or put Daniel to bed, etc. But the key is those songs. They LIKE them. They REMEMBER them. One of my boys barely speaks yet, but he can sing (sort of) those songs. And more importantly, if I sing them he knows what we are doing and what to do next. No more trying to explain what a potty is, what a toothbrush does, he's got it already. And he WANTS to do it, because that's what Daniel does. I've got my older child asking me for help to take a deep breath and count to four when he's in a meltdown (from the tv series). Daniel Tiger: toddler whisperer. Inspired.
Best app ever! Works without data/internet access. Takes a lot of space though. My 3 year old learned to brush teeth and go to potty watching Danielle Tiger. Highly recommend. Very interactive and lots of fun for any toddler!
