As parents, we’re busy. And, even if it’s our very, very best intentions to not always let the kids be in front of the TV or computer, let’s face it, we’ve all handed over the iPad or iPhone while in the car, the grocery store, when we just need a second to breathe, etc.
Am I right? But, I’m guessing most parents think like I do, and I sure don’t want my kids to just have direct access to the internet and all of the craziness out there they can get into. Well, the folks from LEGO® agree, and have created The Official LEGO® Channel on YouTube that we, as parents, can subscribe to. It’s a safe place for the kids to hang out and watch their favorite LEGO® videos from playlists we create.
The LEGO® channel currently has over 500 awesome videos to chose from, and everyday they’re adding more. With a trusted brand like LEGO®, you can feel confident as a parent that the kids are only viewing quality videos while keeping them entertained.
My sons (and daughter too, when she’s feeling inspired) all love LEGO®, but being different ages, they each have their own favorites. My older son enjoyed the LEGO® The Lord of the Rings™ set he got for Christmas, so he was super excited when he saw that he could add videos from that set into our playlist. And my seven year old Joshua, who loves all things LEGO® Star Wars™ has watched several of the videos already, and was happy to add them to the playlist as well.
Building your own playlist is easy, and it’s something that I personally have enjoyed doing with the kids-
- 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
