10 Video clips and songs your toddler and young child will love

Long hours of TV are not recommended for toddlers or young children, but sometimes you just need something that will keep them busy for just a few minutes. Maybe you are at a restaurant and you need to have a look at the menu, or in car or wherever and you need them to be quiet for a while. Here is a selection of YouTube video clips your toddler or child will love. The best thing is the can be accessed from anywhere with an Internet connection, so just bookmark this page, it may come in handy one day!

  • Gummy Bear - This little bouncy green bear is certainly going to get your childs attention. The music is catchy, the video is fast and it has a lot of colors. There are a good 10 or so gummy bear videos but here is the classic one.

  • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse - Probably one of the oldest cartoon characters around! I have yet to meet a child that doesn't know about or like Mickey Mouse. Just over a minute long, here is a link to the Clubhouse HOTDOG song.

  • Ding Dong Bell - Do your children like nursery rhymes? If yes, they will surely like this video clip. Clear, easy to understand video that will even appeal to children as young as 12 months. The lyrics at the bottom are its added bonus because they help the child learn the rhyme.

  • 10 little numbers - Are you trying to teach your child the numbers? If yes, this video is not just entertaining but has educational value too! Little, colorful, cute numbers with eyes are surely going to interest your child.

  • Barney - They either love him or hate him. If they love him, here is one of his most popular clips.

  • The Alphabeth song - Ideal for kindergarden/preschoolers, this alphabeth song helps them learn letters and words. Very colorful and animated. Over 3 minutes long, it makes it a perfect clip for those tight moments.

  • The Little Mermaid - The song complete with lyrics to help your children sing along to it. Probably better for an older child that can read but a toddler would love the music too!

  • Peppa Pig - Especially adored by pre schoolers, here is a long 5 minute official episode that will buy you enough time to place an order at the restaurant. Many more Peppa Pig official videos uploaded by this member! If your child loves Peppa Pig, this is the place to be!

  • Spongebob Squarepants - The little Spongebob character, loved by millions of kids worldwide is a favorite we can't forget. Not a long full episode but a little clip that will capture your childs attention.

  • Twinkle Twinkle - We have all heard this song but it never grows old. Recommended by uploader to be suitable for children of age 2+. An interactive application also available!

My son (14 months) LOVES this video. He comes RUNNING from the other room when he hears it. It stops tantrums, and gives me a few minutes to myself while he watches it in amazement.
