If mom has a young child, then she probably knows who Blippi is. YouTube has become the new TV for children, and they seem to always want to be on it. Not only that, but they seem to know how to work it on their own. They know how to navigate and find the content that they want, and they can always find Blippi. That is probably because at the end of every one of his videos he teaches children how to find his videos by spelling his name together.
According to Common Sense Media, Blippi is loved by children all over because he seems to be incredibly young at heart and he presents himself to children in a very relatable way. He has a talent for keeping children glued to the screen instead of wandering off and mom doesn’t mind too much because all of his content is super educational.
However, even if Blippi is teaching children their ABC’s or the 123’s, she can get a little tired of having nothing else on. If mom is looking for some other content on YouTube to introduce to her children, she may want to check out one of these 8 channels instead.

This channel is similar to Blippi as it hosted by another “real life” man named Steve.

6 Katie Cutie Kids TV
Katie Cutie is a female host who spends her time singing nursery rhymes with background animations. She doe sit all while wearing some pretty colorful and cool costumes.
