Superheroes for the little guys!
When I was first going through infertility issues a few years back I avoided sappy movies as much as possible and started gravitating towards dude comedies (as opposed to rom-coms) and superhero movies.
Now I have a 2 year old son and in the interest of avoiding him copying the Thor with a Mjolnir violence of superhero movie (and dude comedies, for that matter), I realize it will be a few years until he’s introduces to pop culture superheroes.
Even so, I have found a number of very cool superheroes who are totally appropriate for the toddler set!
(PBS) “Superheroes stand aside. There’s a Supermonster in town and he’s armed with the power of investigation! With Super Grover 2.0 segments, your child will learn how to use math and science to save the day”
() Super Why and his story land friends travel into books to solve problems. Heavy on teaching the alphabet, letter sounds, word recognition and other pre-reading skills. Plus it’s got a very catchy Tom Jones-esque theme song.
(BunnyTown, Disney Junior) Super-Bunny thwarts the shenanigans of arch nemesis Little Bad Bunny in these cute shorts on Disney Junior.
(PBS Sprout) I hesitate, I do, mainly because this show’s a lil weird for my tastes - but Sporto here is all about being healthy and moving more and that can’t be bad, right? Plus, he ain’t that bad on the eyes.
(Nick Jr) Ryder heads up the Paw Patrol - a group of talking pups with rescue specialties working for a living saving bunnies and turtles and the mayor in the idyllic Adventure Bay. Realistic? Hell no. Adorable and not as annoying as a certain dutchman above? Absolutely. It’s my 2 year old’s current favorite show and occupied him on his Leap Pad for an hour and a half car ride to Cape Cod earlier this month. Win!
