In just a span of 24 months, Chu Chu TV has become a hit among kids and mothers alike. It is a harassed mommy’s favorite baby sitter and “Khana khilane ka sahara”! Your toddler is refusing to eat food or calm down? Bring on Chu Chu TV!
There is definitely some magic to the peppy nursery rhymes of Chu Chu TV that as soon as I play them on YouTube, my bawling baby stops crying and immediately becomes engrossed in what is on screen! There are many other kids channels on YouTube, but ChuChuTV is one of the best.
As a new parent, it is both a cause for relief as well as worry. Relief, you know why! Anything that gets them off your back is freaking awesome, isn’t it? Think again!
Researchers today are concerned that too much screen time or playing games online may lead to long-term changes in their developing brain’s circuitry which resemble the effects of substance dependence. Long story short – the beginning of addiction!
Even average levels of screen time every day are now being strongly associated with increase in risk of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease as found in a Harvard study. Beside this the increasing general attention problems and ADHD symptoms in children also has a close co relation with exposure to TV time when young.
As a parent it is a catch 22 situation. The instant reward of seeing your toddler gobble up his vegetable puree offsets any nagging thoughts of the possible future harms. The only option remains is to limit screen time as much as possible. I had also succumbed to using YouTube videos as a feeding aid, but am slowly weaning Baby C off that.
I have slowly started moving the Tab further and further away. Slowly tilting the screen away from him is also a good strategy. The goal is to allow him to enjoy the music and sounds of the nursery rhymes without exposing him to the visuals.
So all the best doing that! Till then enjoy these top ten Chu Chu Tv Rhymes

ChuChuTV is a good app to use. As with anything, moderation is key. With screen time all the more. So, if you at your wits end and your little one is just not co operating then don’t fret and use the videos to get a breather! However, try not to make it a habit nor a baby sitting tool. The ChuChu TV app is available for free on Google Play. Some videos in the app are free and some are paid. They have ads running in between the free videos which can be bummer sometimes. To avoid the ads, you can put your phone in flight or areoplane mode and use.
