Have you seen this web-based television station for kids? It’s called BunnyEars TV and it features a variety of animated cartoons and stories for children over the age of three. This sweet website shares classic tales from around the world and allows users to enjoy stories that are appropriate for their particular time zone. So if you’re checking out the website in the morning, you can expect the programs to be a different pace from the ones shown in the evening when your little ones are winding down for bedtime.
BunnyEars TV gives you the option of watching any of the featured cartoons. The programs are currently only available for those of us in North America, but the shows come from all over the world. For example, Munk and Lemmy is from Latvia, The Rabbit with Checkered Ears is from Hungary and Chez Helene is Canadian—it aired on CBC between 1958-1973 and helped Canadian children learn to speak French.
The cartoons are shown on a cute vintage television set, are easy to understand (despite the language differences) and the site is absolutely free! New episodes of the animated series are added each week. The website also features a blog, crafts and music.
Judy Blumstock, the creator of BunnyEars TV, was looking for something to help her daughter fall asleep, in addition to helping her recapture and share some of the feelings she experienced as a young child growing up in Hungary watching these programs. The result is a site that is adorable and easy to use—we think that you and your wee ones will enjoy the different features that BunnyEars TV has to offer.
