Calling all cbeebies experts! I have just had a new baby and my resolve to limit my 2-year old's tv viewing has gone out the window. We have only ever watched the bedtime hour before. Any advice on good programs suitable for a 2 and a half year old? Thanks!!

It changes weekly but mr bloom ,something special , baby jake, octonauts, show me show me, tikkabilla, driver dans story train have all had phases of being popular. Do you have a recorder as I tend to record and replay stuff? And IMHO peppa pig prob still the all time favourite

Oh and big city park too

Raa raa the noisy lion, something special, Charlie and Lola.

And show me show me.

My son loves 'Shaun the Sheep'

MamaMia100 Fri 30-Sep-11 17:57:39

Excellent! Thanks everyone. Just tried ra ra the noisy lion and she loved it :-). We will work our way through the other suggestions!

Waybaloo seems popular too.

Ps we watch stuff on 'catch up on demand'', which doesn't seem to have peppa pig or big city farm unfortunately :-(

Show Me Show Me is fantastic. DD loves Mr Bloom and Something Special too.

Show me Show me, Mr Bloom, Big and Small

Tinga Tales are lovely.

Octonauts are the firm favourite here.

Avoid Gigglebiz, Mighty Mites and Rasta Mouse .

Thank you! Well, Mr bloom went down like a lead balloon, tho I liked it! Will try some others...

Any more recommendations ??? smile

Night garden, waybaloo. Ds loved the singing interludes.. You the days of the week ones etc. Try something special, most kids adore it and kerwhizz.

DS is nearly 2 and loves Something Special (he would watch it all day if he was allowed) and has picked up quite a few signs from it.

Ra ra is popular to, as is Waybuloo, Mr Bloom and Nina and the Neurons!

IvyAndGold Tue 04-Oct-11 20:03:51

At the minute 17mo DD is loving Waybuloo, In The Night Garden, and Baby Jake (which I hate!)

She is more of a Milkshake fan, on channel 5 in the mornings, to be honest. She's a complete Peppa Pig groupie, and loves Ben and Holly, Fifi and Mio and Mao I think it's called...

KenDoddsDadsDog Tue 04-Oct-11 20:05:26

DD loves Timmy Time

FrillyMilly Tue 04-Oct-11 20:11:03

Dd is nearly 3 and loves Something Special, she knows quite a few signs from it. She also likes I Can Cook although not sure if that's on at the moment and Show Me Show Me is another. I don't allow waybaloo on cos the squeaky voices drive me insane. We've started to build up quite a DVD collection now too. She loves Disney films, Dora, Peppa pig and Ben and holly.

My dd2 giggles her way through every episode of Timmy Time,but adores Something Special(as she uses makaton herself)& Gigglebiz.
Justin can do no wrong in this house!!!

RogerMelly Thu 06-Oct-11 14:56:22

Pretty much any of the Cbeebies stuff is good in my book. If you're going the DVD route my 2 year old loves Dora and since my son was born in July she has garnered a fairly impressive spanish vocabularly! Like you my resolve on the telly front went by the way side when my baby arrived!
