Wow I think I'm in LOVE! This website offers short animated videos on all kinds of subjects, from science, math, reading, arts, and on. This is a great way for busy parents of older toddlers, preschoolers, and even older students to introduce a wide variety of topics with next to no effort, just click and play.
The only downside is that since they are all animated, they don't show live footage of animals, etc, although animations in general are good for keeping kids' attention. They offer a 5 day free trial so check it out! Family memberships are $85 annually and offer a monthly payment plan.www.BrainPopJR.com
Here's some free samples too, but taking the trial will unlock the whole site and every subject area which is very vast. http://www.brainpopjr.com/free/
