Looking for the best Chinese kids shows for non-fluent parents and kids? You’ve come to the right place. I’ve included the shows my little one and I love to watch:

  • Bluey
  • Luo Bao Bei
  • Miaomiao’s Chinese For Kids

Bluey

About Bluey

Follows the adventures of a six year old Blue Heeler dog named Bluey. She has a Red Heeler four year old sister, Bingo, Mum named Chilli, and Dad named Bandit. They live in Brisbane in Queensland, Australia.

Why I love Bluey

  • The vocabulary used is practical, relevant and simple since it is about the everyday life of Bluey and her family.
  • The episodes include games the kids can replicate at home. For example, Keepy Uppy involves keeping a balloon in the air and not letting it touch the ground. Featherwand is about a feather wand Bingo uses to make objects heavy, so you can’t pick them up.
  • Each episode revolves around teaching a lesson in a fun way. For example, Bob Bilby is about how screen time is boring and there are so many other fun non-screen things you can do.
  • It includes parenting and adult humour to keep the parents entertained and laughing as much as the kids.
  • Bluey is a high quality animation. From the characters, the sets, the friends, the world, and the music used.
  • It is set in Australia and includes Australian sayings and slang. This is great for Australian kids, who are exposed to a lot of American TV, as well as those interested in learning about Australian life and culture.
  • Each episode is short at about 7 minutes.
