Why Are Kids Captivated by Youtube Videos of People Playing Toys?

Recently, my daughter discovered YouTube. She’s only three so I monitor everything she watches intently. Her new favorite channel is Come Play With Me. Sounds creepy right?

"COME PLAY WITH ME is a great kid friendly toys dolls parody channel featuring videos with famous characters such as: queen Elsa of Arendelle, princess Anna from the Disney’s movie Frozen, Olaf, Sven, Kristoff, Hans and many others!" Well, I watch every video just to make sure and it’s just a couple of kids who are playing with Frozen characters. The little girls’ accents drive me  nuts but the entire channel is harmless so my daughter is allowed to watch any of their videos.

I’m thinking, this is really weird. She is obsessed with these videos, and, she turns all mini monster when her daily 30 minute screen time is up. During her school party yesterday, I started talking to another mom and apparently there are a LOT of kids who obsessively watch other kids playing with toys on Youtube. MIND. BLOWN.

I also learned that some kids like watching adults play with the kids and toys. Again, weird weird weird. I’d love to hear about your kids’ Youtube obsessions! Let other weirded out parents know they are not alone!
