Since 14-month old Vee would be watching television programs someday, I am doing my homework by screening appropriate ones for him. Last month, I had the privilege of having dinner with the Playhouse Disney team to understand more about the thinking and planning done behind its programs. My verdict: Yes, Vee would be watching the Playhouse Disney channel (together with me) when he is older!

Fit Fit Hurray: Health-Themed Programs

Tomorrow (1 May 2010), Saturday from 9.30a.m. to 1.30p.m., stay tuned to Playhouse Disney (in Kuala Lumpur: Astro Channel 613) to catch health-themed episodes of your preschoolers’ favourite series.

Additionally, four special short-form programs – Mickey Mousekersize, Dance-a-lot Robot, Tasty Time with Zefronk and Adventures in Nutrition with Captain Carlos – will also be aired throughout the day for the little ones’ enjoyment!

I have previewed two of the programs and here is my take on them:

Mickey Mousekersize
Hosted by Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mousekersize focuses on the fun of exercising and encourages kids at home to get up and move along with Mickey and pals.

My views: It encourages children to exercise through bending and stretching to music. Vee loves dancing to music and this is something he would enjoy. To reap full benefits from the segment, a parent (or caregiver) ought to watch it with the child, demonstrate the exercise and encourage him/her to move. This way, Mummy or Daddy gets to exercise too!

Captain Carlos
Adventures in Nutrition with Captain Carlos spotlights a six-year-old boy who shows how healthy meals and regular physical activity make him feel like a superhero.

My views: Fussy-eaters should watch this. It educates children to build healthy eating habits such as avoiding junk food and choosing healthy snacks. For instance, the episode that I previewed shares that carrots are good for eyesight.

What I like about Playhouse Disney:
  • Commercial-free channel
  • The team encourages co-viewing and recognises its benefits
  • Carefully chosen programs based on the Whole Child Curriculum

What can be improved:

  • Extend the health-themed programs to longer than 5 minutes each (Good things are never enough, ha!)
