Old Rhymes in a new innovative way

5 old rhymes Chu Chu Tv provides innovation to.

          Nursery rhymes play an important role in everyone’s childhood. These rhymes and poems are taught to kids and are in existence since generations and are passed on from mother to child, grandparents to grandchildren so on and so forth.

          Previously we used to get rhyme books and cassettes to play on our tape recorder. With advent of technology, we got nursery rhyme CD’s with more animation, good background music, more characters to attract kid’s attention.

          Present generation children are very smart and are tech savvy since their early childhood. They get easily bored with same regular stuff and need innovations to hold on their attention.

          Gone are the days of books and tape recorders. Now is time for kindle, YouTube and tabs. So ChuChu TV has a whole lot of innovative videos of these rhymes. These are the same old rhymes but with little bit of changes.

         With little bit of creativity and imagination they have made the videos even more animated interesting to hold on the child’s attention.      

          Check out the way they have changed

Humpty dumpty

Twinkle twinkle little star

Johnny Johnny Yes Papa

Baba Black Sheep

Jack and Jill 

and  many more.

  There are many more educational and informative videos for our preschoolers and toddlers which they will definitely  love to see. 

          What I liked about their videos is that inspite of the changes they have retained the original lyrics of the rhymes. They have added more volume and converted it into a musical story to hold on a child’s attention for longer duration.
          Chuchu TV has definitely done a good job in creating such innovative videos for kids, preschoolers and toddlers.
