A few weeks ago, I brought you a review of the Playhouse Disney Channel. One show that my family loves is Handy Manny (also known as Hanny Manny in my home – you can frequently hear my little one saying “Hanny, Hanny, Hanny, Hanny Manny” over and over again). I am also guilty of singing the Handy Manny theme song – it’s just so catchy.
Along with my daughter loving this show (yes – girls can like Handy Manny too), I love the show too. Spanish is my 3rd language, so I enjoy watching Handy Manny for the Spanish / Latino “culturo” and flare. I also love how Manny and his special tools work together to fix things around the neighbourhood, what a great lesson for children. Handy Manny is the local fix it guy and is always cool, calm and collected even when things are broken and others may get a little flustered. Handy Mandy (who is played by Fez from that 70’s show), always has a positive outlook on getting the project complete and working with his friends to get it done. How could anyone not like this guy?!?
Handy Manny is on the Playhouse Disney Channel each day @ 9:30 am EST, and is also on the Family Channel on Saturday mornings, this is when we watch Hanny Manny work together, “todos juntos”.
If your kids can’t get enough of Handy Manny, they can get their “fix” on Playhouse Disney online. There are fun games that teach your children colours, adding and words in both English and Spanish (on a side note, I think it’s very important for kids to learn different languages, we are teaching my daughter French and English). Some of the games may be for the older toddlers, but younger kids can enjoy playing and making music, watching videos and dancing to the Handy Manny theme song.
Handy Manny is a very popular show in my home. It’s educational, fun, entertaining and has a positive message for children of all ages.
