One thing I remember doing when I was a kid, whether I was playing with my friends or my cousins, is playing LEGOs®. We would dump them all out across the floor, and let our imaginations go.
We built cities, spaceships, vehicles, boats, and islands. We combed through the pieces looking for the little people to man the cars and to shop in the cities. We would sit with our LEGO® wonderlands for hours.
Right now, Ethan is smitten with all things LEGO® Ninjago. The cartoon, the characters, playing with his friends and pretending to be part of that world. He is saving his money right now to buy a LEGO® Ninjago set of his very own.
Ethan is also a huge fan of the YouTube LEGO® Ninjago videos. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t let him just flip on YouTube whenever he wants to find whatever he wants on there. I found out the hard way that just because it looks kid friendly, doesn’t mean it is. At all.
But when he found some Ninjago videos, he was so excited. I was learly to let him watch them until I found The Official LEGO® Channel on You Tube, then I was excited!
I know that when I let Ethan watch The LEGO® channel that he is watching kid-friendly, parent approved videos that I can be comfortable letting him see. There are over 500 videos for him to choose from and they continue to add more daily. And I can trust they are appropriate for him since they are all backed with the LEGO® name.
And of course kids always find favorites that they want to watch over and over again. So I created a LEGO® playlist for Ethan to watch from videos on The Official LEGO® Channel. I thought it would be full of LEGO® Ninjago videos, but he was excited to add some LEGO® Starwars™ and LEGO® DC Universe™ Super Heroes videos as well. His new favorite videos to watch are the LEGO® The Hobbit videos.
Sounds great, right? Well you can create your own LEGO® playlist for your children!
It’s easy, just go to The Official LEGO® Channel and scroll through the selection of videos like some of the ones I mentioned or many more.
When you and your child find one you want to save, you just click on “Video Options” towards the bottom right of the video, and select “Add to Playlist”. You will sign in using your YouTube log in, then add your selected video to an existing playlist or create a new one.
Simple! You can also prevent non-LEGO® videos from being recommended, only add Official LEGO® Channel videos to your playlist.
The best part is that anytime you have a computer (or iPad or smartphone), you can access the playlist and keep your kids entertained! Now it’s time for you to check it out.
There is a lot of content on web; creating a playlist on the Official LEGO® Channel is a great way to ensure your kids are entertained and watching videos you can feel good about.
