Ah! The glorious 21st century! We live in an exciting time where smartphones and tablets are not just a thing of science fiction movies.

The fact that these devices can also connect to the Internet regardless of where we are has made them essential survival tools that enable us to track our fitness goals, pay bills, and placate the grumpy little one who has yet to discover the joys of shopping for groceries. Phew, what a lifesaver.

But before you put on just any video for your child, keep in mind that the Internet is also filled with unsuitable content. With that said, here are 5 children-friendly YouTube channels you’ll want to bookmark...

#1 Super Simple Songs – Kids Songs

With over 380 videos of simple songs that you and your child can sing along to, nobody will ever have to get bored listening to yet another performance of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star”. Plus, there are colourful animations and live acting (think Sesame Street) to go along with the songs to keep your child occupied.

Oh! Lyrics are in the video description, so no, you don’t have to play the video super slow to catch the words.

#2 Cartooning 4 Kids | How to Draw

What’s better than being entertained? Being entertained while learning a useful skill! That’s exactly what this channel is about – teaching kids how to draw. The channel has over 1,300 tutorial videos featuring popular cartoon and game characters that your kid(s) probably know and love.

#3 San Diego Zoo

We’ve never met a child who isn’t fascinated by animals, have you? No? Yea, we didn’t think so. But, the zoo is a really long drive away. Not to mention, it’s a game of luck when it comes to seeing animals up and about. The solution? Watch these videos instead!

Aww! Look at those adorable fur balls chewing on leaves!

#4 chuggaaconroy

As a parent, we’re sure you know that kids and games are inseparable. But what you may not know is that watching someone else play is just as fun as playing them yourself.

These videos are known as “Let's Plays” and they’re all over YouTube these days. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of “Let's Play” channels that are kid-friendly, so we’re grateful having a YouTuber such as chuggaaconroy that makes it a point to keep it all PG.

#5 Sesame Street

Finally, we have Sesame Street! Yup, the all-time favourite children’s entertainment show that we all grew up watching has now gone digital. The channel’s library contains over 2,400 videos of sock-puppet fun so you can share your childhood – and the memorable characters that has made it so awesome – with your little one! No kid should ever grow up not knowing Sesame Street.

While the content of the YouTube channels listed above are catered to kids, we have to warn you, as parents, to monitor the type of content your child consumes on the Internet. It’s also a good idea to keep them away from any potential 'unpleasantness' in the comments section of YouTube videos by putting on the videos in full-screen mode.
