There is nothing like a bit of downtime when you have children, snuggling up together on the sofa watching one of their favourite shows. Nothing too taxing when they have had a busy day at school and need a chance to unwind and forget about their troubles. With early starts lately my six year old can be a proper grump after teatime, so letting him pick out something to watch usually improves his mood no end.
I like to monitor what they pick though as certain shows occasionally upset him. For a while he would not sleep with his soft toy in his bed of a night because one kids cartoon showed soft toys coming to life and talking to their owners, which completely freaked him out! Fortunately Ketchup TV has chosen the most perfect shows for a younger audience each one featuring their favourite characters. Children 3+ will be very well catered with the content on here. My two are still fans of shows like Dinosaur Train and Pingu, but I know they would have enjoyed the selection even more a few years back. Even better if your children want to watch different shows its not an issue, you do not have to enter fraught negotiations about who’s programme goes on first as fortunately you can stream the shows on up to three separate devices.
I think Ketchup TV is a better option than watching the same shows on television because you do not have adverts to deal with, watching adverts with children in the run up to Christmas can turn into a costly exercise! They want EVERYTHING they see, so actually investing £2.29 a month to avoid hearing “I WANT” on repeat with increasing regularity is a small price to pay. Plus you have the flexibility that you can cancel your subscription at any time, so its something you can pick up and drop as and when is needed (might be handy for school holidays!).
Ketchup TV continually adds new content so your children will not tire of the programmes on offer. I think its handy being able to access shows when you are out and about on a smartphone or tablet; a well-timed episode of Paddington might just be what’s needed to distract children from a full on tantrum! Let’s be honest anything that makes life easier as a parent is a big plus in my book.
