As the kids got a little older, they discovered the cartoon channels and it’s been the main “go-to” set of channels since. Admittedly, they now mainly enjoy watching the Disney Channel, but it wasn’t so long ago that Disney Junior was the absolute favourite.
Disney Junior is the #1 Preschool Subscription TV channel that brings Magical Storytelling into the homes of young children. The stories are engaging with the much loved Disney Junior characters delivering their stories of generosity, kindness to others and teamwork. These stories touch the hearts of both parents and pre-schoolers alike.
Disney Junior is accessible via Foxtel & Fetch, but with short TV episodes also available via the DisneyJunior.com.au website and iTunes.com/disneyjunior. Core TV shows, Sofia the First, Jake and the Never Land Pirates and Doc McStuffins are also aired on Free To Air TV (Ch. 7, SUN 6-7am, 7mate, weekday mornings 7-9am, from 6th Oct).
It’s been a while since I’ve had a look at the Disney Junior website and was pleased to see the array of content available including short episodes and sing-along songs, games and activity print-outs for craft, colouring-in etc.
My little lady is a craft addict (much like her mother) and we’re always looking online for colouring pages and craft print-outs, so this will be a wonderful resource for her to explore.
One of Disney Junior’s most popular characters is Jake from Jake and the Never Land Pirates; this follows the adventures of a crew of kid pirates; leader Jake and pals Izzy, Cubby and Scully, as they work to outwit the infamous Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. The show features lots of good guys vs bad guys teamwork action that both boys and girls love, and Jake portrays strong positive values to preschool children that their parents trust and admire.
Talk Like a Pirate Day will be celebrated tomorrow (19 September) and Disney Junior will be celebrating Jake and the Never Land Pirates throughout the month of September, including an all day marathon of Jake episodes on the Disney Junior channel.
