No secret here: Kids loooooooove screentime. But give yourself a break, parents, it’s not necessarily a bad thing! There are so many awesome TV shows that help teach preschoolers the basics, from ABCs to good hygiene. Plus, TV shows help kids develop important social-emotional skills. The on-screen characters they see every day can become their best friends during playtime.
From adorable puppies to iconic red monsters, preschool shows can jump to life off-screen in the form of interactive, super fun toys. Plush, figures, and playsets help kids engage with their favorite characters in a totally unique way, and they even get imaginations working, as kids dream up their own stories featuring the animated stars from the shows they love.
Check out the best toys from the cutest preschool shows below!
