As a mom of three children, we have more LEGO® sets than I care to admit. Each of my children love creating with LEGO® and I love that it engages my children and allows them to use their imaginations to create an imaginary world of their own.
They are always playing on the iPads and have found out how to navigate their way around better than I can. They discovered YouTube and like to watch funny, accident type videos, like people falling off treadmills, or babies doing crazy dances. But once I learned about The Official LEGO® Channel and introduced them to all the online videos, they began to spend more time watching the short little LEGO® videos.
To be completely honest, I would much prefer my children watching videos on The Official LEGO® Channel over those other videos that I would have to preview to make sure it was suitable for them to view. With over 500 videos to choose from, and more being added everyday, I feel comfortable with what they’re watching and don’t have to prescreen each and every video.
Within YouTube you can create playlists with videos that are okay for your children to watch. This is something I just learned about (totally wish I would have known sooner) and we have already put it to use with some of their favorite LEGO® videos. Creating a playlist is super simple and can be accessed anywhere to help keep your kids entertained no matter where you are.
To create your own LEGO® playlist, follow these easy steps:
- Visit Youtube.com/LEGO and watch one of your favorite videos
- Click “Video Options”
- Select “Add To Playlist”
- Sign-In using your YouTube Login
- Add your selected video to an existing playlist or create a new one
- To prevent non-LEGO® videos from being recommended, build your playlist using only Official LEGO® Channel videos.
I love having the capability to create a playlist of approved videos that my children can watch at anytime. Whether we are shopping at the grocery store or waiting for a doctors appointment, the playlist functionality is really going to come in handy.
There is a lot of content on the web and creating a playlist on the Official LEGO® Channel is a great way to ensure your kids are entertained and watching videos you can feel good about.
