Do your kids play along?

I'm going to explain this the best way I can. My sons love to watch The Disney Channel. One some of the shows, like Little Einsteins and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, they ask your child to "help" them along on their missions. For example; Little Ensteins ask your child to help power up their rocket by patting their legs, then raise their hands over the heads and yell "BLASTOFF!". Sometimes they ask you what shape something is. Or with Blues Clues, they ask if you see a clue and to tell the host (Steve or Joe) where it is. With Mickey's show, when they need a tool they have to call for Toodles to bring it to them and ask you children to call for Toodles. Do your children play along and do what they are asked or do they just zone out in front of it? I was just curious since I watch these shows daily and every day something happens where they ask your child to "help" in someway.

My daughter is three and while I do hear her interact with the learning shows, the one that she really likes and participates the most in is Dora the Explorer, I hear her trying to repeat words in spanish, she tells Swiper the Fox "Swiper no swiping." She jumps when they say jump, and repeats everything that they ask. I feel that these types of shows that encourage interaction with children are very healty and the information that they pick up from the reptitiveness is amazing. My daughter also likes Blues Clues and Diego. Diego she has picked up so much about animals it's amazing. Good luck to you here at mylot!
