What TV shows are good for a 3 year old?

What television shows are good for a 3-year-old? My son loves trucks, but he saw monster trucks and tries to destroy all his toys. He’s very rough on things, and people keep saying all boys are rough. He has a bad habit of throwing things as well. I think he has learned some of this from other kids at daycare as well. But my mother seems to think it’s from watching monster trucks. I have talked to my son about taking care of his toys, but nothing is helping!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse/Mickey and the Roadster Racers, T.O.T.S., Mira Royal Detective, Bluey, all these are my daughters favorites currently. I find that, personally, Disney is a little better than Nickelodeon.

Have you watched Blippi? Has a lot of monster trucks, dinosaurs, abc, numbers and colors. Somehow very entertaining to kids and Amazon prime usually has the videos for free or youtube them all. I highly recommend. PJ masks and Bluey on disney channel and paw patrol or blue’s clues on Nick jr

I have 2 boys and my oldest is the same way. He is 5 now and when he watches something that is aggressive he tends to act out so I try not to allow that type of thing as much as I can help it.

I try to stick to shows on disney plus. Mickey clubhouse, roadster racers, vamprina, adv of the Gummi bears. On Netflix they watch number blocks, coco motion, super why. Alot of pbs! Pj masks is the favorite amongst both kids!

Pj masks, cocomelen ,leapfrog, t.o.t.s, bps channel,

Mighty Mike… it’s funny

Ok well he’s THREE… so dont expect him to listen or understand from a talk. Children are smart and absorb everything but its still the fact they’re young and it takes more than a talk to understand.

Coco melon is GREAT for teaching kids manners and how to be gentle, say please and thank you, etc. Definitely helped my daughter speak more too since we don’t live near family and she doesn’t get a lot of time with other kids to develop social skills

My boys do the same thing… The oldest is 23 now… they still throw monster trucks. My youngest kids watch Monster Jam , blaze and Any car show their dad watches.they love blippi

Oldie but goodie, The Wiggles

Paw Patrol is a good one. As far as his throwing and roughness, keep correcting him. It’s not o.k. to throw toys.
