I participated in this program on behalf of The Fred Rogers Company and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
Fred Rogers said, “In all things we do, we should think of the children first. How can we support growth and development?” It’s obvious Mr. Rogers knew exactly what he was talking about and I could not agree more. One of the ways I encourage growth and development with my own children is through play. Research shows that children make strong connections to TV characters and I think any parent would agree with that. Think back a few weeks ago to Halloween- how many characters did you see running around? Children listen to, trust, and learn from those characters on TV. That’s why it’s so important to make sure their TV time is spent with fun and educational shows like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood.
Since Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood premiere in September 2012, the show has been among the top 10 highest rated programs for preschoolers and among the top 5 highest rated programs among moms. As a mom, it is definitely one of my favorite shows. I’m so glad we are able to watch it on Amazon since we’ve given up satellite. I love that each show features a theme and a strategy that little ones can apply in their own lives. And the songs, we all sing along with the songs and Bella sings “Everyone is big enough, big enough to do something!”
It was absolutely time for some Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood toys to hit the market! Daniel Tiger toys are available exclusively at Toys “R” Us and every toy is made to inspire creativity and imagination. What I love about these toys is that they allow for open-ended play and can be used in more than one way. There is no right or wrong- no one way to play. You’ll find plush dolls, Neighborhood Friend Figures, and play sets. Pillowcases and clothing are also offered. Prices are totally affordable- anywhere from $5.99 – $39.99. Great for holiday gifting!
