Child-friendly cartoons go beyond mere entertainment; they serve as windows into imaginative worlds, imparting valuable lessons while preserving the magic of innocence. But with so many choices, especially on YouTube, it can be tough to know what to watch.

Before we go into it mums and dads, please get your kids off Cocomelon and Peppa Pig! Your kids can’t get enough of Cocomelon because of the way it is produced with the sounds, flashing lights and fast paced cuts that makes it hyper engaging so your kids will become addicted to screen time consuming tonnes of episodes! Peppa Pig on the other hand pushes certain values that may not resonate-bullying, naughtiness and fat shaming just to mention a few.
