My 3 year old loves Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. I can tell that she grasps the concepts of the different lessons because she will randomly sing some of the songs on her own ("clean-up, pick-up, put away", "go potty right away", "you can take a turn, then I'll get it back", etc.). My daughter was the typical hysterical toddler when getting a shot. Before her last doctors appointment, immediately before we left, I played the episode for her where DT's Mom explains to him that he will be getting a shot and tells him to think of something nice. My daughter told the doctor, "I'll think of something else" and didn't shed a tear - even the doctor was shocked. For that, I will forgive all of the obnoxious 'Meow-Meows'. If I could give this show platinum status, I would.
