Little ones in the UAE can dance, sing and learn how to read and write if they give these videos a watch. (We aren’t talking about watching Dan TDM play Minecraft or the Disney Collectorbr unwrapping surprise toys...)
You can even download YouTube Kids to ensure that your children are watching age appropriate content.
To help you weed out the good from the bad, we’ve rounded up ten of our favourites.
Art for Kids Hub
This is a cute family run channel where the parents do step-by-step instructions on how to draw for their own children and yours to follow.

Not so much educational in itself, but by following the on-screen yoga and meditation demos, kids will be focused and calm to embark on any studying they may have to do.
Free. Ages four to 11.
Crash Course Kids
The channel focuses on science for primary school children and supports their learning with educational videos on biology, geography, engineering and astronomy.

Cool music videos perfect for little dancers and divas. As well as music videos that kids can join in with, there are interviews and behind the scenes footage.

Mike and Mia
Parents may find these two slightly irritating, but they seem to mesmerise tiny tots with their nursery rhymes and singing – when Mike and Mia’s version of Baby Shark comes on, you might want to mute the iPad mind you.
Free. Ages two to six.
National Geographic Kids
Curious kids satiate their hunger for knowledge by watching hundreds of weird, wild and wacky videos. The weird, but true elements are definitely worth a watch – for parents as well as kids.
Free. Ages four to 13.
