My son, probably like any number of your children, LOVES minecraft. But not only does he love playing minecraft, he also likes learning from other people how to do things on minecraft.
Therein enters the wonderful world of youtube.
I have to admit, I trust my son with youtube. He’s a responsible boy who takes life seriously, has little to no tolerance for bad language or inappropriate conversation, or people who put down faith in God. So when I asked my lad what shows I could recommend for other children he quickly gave me a list of what’s good to watch.
First off Stampy.
My son says that at the very beginning Stampy didn’t always talk nice, but now he talks nice. This is the fellow that my son admittedly watches the most and gets a lot of good ideas from.
Second: Squid also known as BallisticSquid.
I know from listening to the odd Stampy video that if you know Stampy, you’ll meet Squid. One leads to another, they play games together and have fun making minecraft videos.
Recently my son has added Ibxtoycat.
I want to call this fellow a boxy cat and that makes my boy giggle at me… and correct me each and every time.. I still get it wrong. BUT I’m getting used to conversations that start with “guess what I learned from Ibxtoycat today mom? Did you know that if you do mumble mumble and then can get mumble mumble. I tell him show me.. and it’s neat the things that he can make. Just fascinating.
Number four is the newest addition.. probably watching Mumbo Jumbo for a couple-three weeks.
I haven’t heard a lot from my boy about mumbo jumbo but the videos keep popping up in my feed and then I’ll hear the lad chortling from his room, or from the sofa or…. wherever. So I’m guessing he’s funny and his videos are good. 🙂
Every once in a while my lad will try a new minecraft specialist but “Mom, he’s not good for children” or “mom, he doesn’t talk nice” or “mom, he’s boring…why are some people boring with videos??” So these four have made the top list for minecraft videos.
Perhaps your children will enjoy them as well. 🙂 May you listen to hours of giggling and have many conversations over minecraft as well… or better yet…. see the fantastic creations your children come up with given the correct inspiration.. like blowing off the top of a mountain with a TNT cannon! Pretty cool eh? 🙂
If your children have favourite youtube channels…share, share away please in the comments below? I want to know, perhaps my lad will like them too.
