As you know, I have a little baby granddaughter now. She just turned 4 months old. Her daddy, my son did not want her watching cartoons so she would just look, fascinated at the colours on whatever was playing on the television. When she was 3 months old we were visiting and she was on her activity mat looking at the screen. My niece's kids love a show called "Backyardigans" I had seen it and it was very cute and vibrant with a little lesson at the end. I put it on that day. My grandbaby is now a Backyardigans Junkie. I say that in the nicest way. When I put it on her eyes lit up and she was glued to the screen. If she is fussy, she is teething, her mommy puts on the show, which she has now purchased on dvd, and it calms her. No matter where they are if you put it on she is calm and relaxed. It is not one of those annoying shows ( we all know those) it is lovely and very cute. This is my advice to all new parents and grandparents. Buy the dvd's, buy them now. Try it first with the television show , I do not know if it is available everywhere, but I guarantee you will not be sorry!
