List RulesVote up the best shows appropriate for a baby to watch.

Although many parents limit screen time for children under a certain age, many also choose fun and educational shows for their babies to watch. When it comes to the best shows for babies to watch, it’s good if there are more than bright colors and fun songs. If you’ve been looking for the best TV shows that are appropriate for kids under 2 years old to watch, this list of the best television shows for babies has fun and educational series that will entertain and enrich little ones.

Many of the best shows for babies teach words and introduce language skills - Martha Speaks, Ni Hao, Kai-Lan, and Sesame Street all use repetition with new words to expand your little ones' vocabulary. Other great television series for babies are just pleasant to watch and gently share facts about everything from science to social interaction, like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Handy Manny.

Which TV shows for babies are worth the screen time? Vote up the best shows for babies, then vote down the shows that aren’t any good for their age group and add any good shows for babies that are missing.
