5 Reasons for children to turn goodie goodie with Voot Kids
Created by Canisha Kapoor Updated on Oct 10, 2016
In a world of distractions, it’s hard for parents to be sure that their kids are focusing on the right kind of fun – something age appropriate, for example! While it’s great to let your kid explore, why not let it happen over a slightly controlled environment?
‘Control’ doesn’t necessarily negate fun anymore, after all. Just look at Voot to prove that. Its content for children is as varied as it is vast, and we think it’s an interesting take on kids programming in a digital world.
1. Characters that move kids!
As a mother of a pre-schooler, it’s natural to be anxious about the kind of cartoons your kid is watching. We’ve all heard of cartoons that have been dubbed in Hindi but use inappropriate language, or showcase the protagonist as a weakling and always in need of a robot or superhero to save him from the troubles.
Voot has a selection of all the popular kids characters across a variety of genres. We know the kind of deep influence characters have on kids, and in that we see an opportunity! Just speak to your kid about the good qualities that each of these characters possess and then sit back and witness the power of change that unfolds in their behavior. As a parent, it is sometimes only about guiding our kids to look in the right direction. So go ahead and talk to your kids about Chhota Bheem and the magic of friendship and teamwork, How Motu Patlu spread the message of being ever-ready to help others in their society, Shiva & his brave outlook to life, Dora’s ever inquisitive nature of exploring the world and so on.
2. Culture, heritage and folk tales
Ever caught yourself wondering how to introduce your child to our heritage, culture and values? Does the question get harder to answer when it comes to your day-to-day life? Of course it does! ‘Voot Kids’ features more than 10 such shows - Panchtantra, Karadi Tales, Krishna-Balram, Lord Shiva, Hanuman, Pandavas, Akbar-Birbal stories, and Folk Tales of India. Any parent worth their salt knows that audio-visuals are easier to understand than just reading… right? This is a good way to introduce your child to the deep learnings from our rich heritage of Indian stories.
3. Learning with fun
Nursery rhymes, number songs & science experiments are fun when seen and heard through interesting programs. So ‘Voot Kids’ decided to create a one-stop destination for learning content that lets your children learn quicker, easier and… frankly, makes it more fun! Let your child enhance her spellings skills by watching spelling bees, or watch your child become a young scientist post-watching science experiments on ‘Voot Kids’.
4. Life skills with Friends
Why make your little one have to choose between life skills and fun? Programmes like ‘Dora The Explorer’, ‘Go Diego’, ‘Thomas & Friends’, ‘Bob The Builder’ (among others) are a good example of how your child may learn while having fun while imparting basic life skills that your children need to learn during their growing up years.
5. Curated crafts and delightful doodles
As a mother, you know your child needs to have hobbies to help them learn new things and develop personal skills. Voot Kids includes content that encourages children to develop extra-curricular activities and hobbies. Some of these programmes have been curated around art & craft, recipes, DIYs, doodles etc.
