As modern moms, we know two things are undeniably true about your life: 1) you rely on YouTube Kids channels to entertain the littles on the regular and 2) the most appealing content for your kids is musical. There’s something about music that kids gravitate toward, and when they find something they like, you will hear about it over and over and over again.
That’s not a bad thing…unless the song in question is truly obnoxious. But we’re going to try and help you avoid the fate of being stuck in a car with a restless kid and a grating children’s song on a loop. We handpicked the five best sing-along YouTube Kids channels that your kids will love and you will…well…at the very least be able to tolerate.
Turn it up to 11, mom!
