Age-appropriate Chores and How to Make Them More Fun with Tiger and Tim Learning Videos for Kids

Kids are not often big fans | Tiger and Tim Animals

Kids are not often big fans of chores, but grown-ups can make helping out around the house more fun with Tiger and Tim!

learning videos for kids | Tiger and Tim Animals

When I left the jungle to live with humans in the city, I learnt that my buddy Tim Hague HAS to do CHORES at home. Whilst our learning videos for kids are considered PLAY for both of us, I didn’t know how to do chores before and I wasn’t soooo thrilled when Tim started teaching me to help out and be a bit more responsible

It is important for young kids to learn the importance of chores at an early age though, because these tasks can teach them to be responsible, empathetic, hard-working, as well as many other important skills that can be used for the rest of their lives! Chores also give children a sense of belonging and can ease the workload of grown-ups. This all means: household assignments are a win-win for both grown-ups and Tiger Cubs.

But let’s face it – most of the time, chores are the last thing on a kid’s or a Tiger’s mind. So, we need to add a little creativity and a dash of excitement to make these little tasks more fun and engaging… Tiger and Tim and our online learning videos for kids made by me and my friend Tim Hague are here to help!

Age-appropriate chores

Age-appropriate chores | Tiger and Tim Animals

Tiger Cubs are more capable than most grown-ups think. Children as young as two-years-old can already start helping out through age-appropriate chores. Simple activities such as putting away their toys or returning books on the shelf are things most young kids can already handle.

Tiger Cubs | Tiger and Tim Animals

Pre-schoolers can already start helping by watering the plants or clearing the table after meals. Grown-ups can also assign them to feed pets by filling the pet’s bowl with food and water.

As they grow older, Tiger Cubs can take on more responsibilities, such as loading the dishwasher, sweeping the floors, and even helping the grown-ups prepare the dinner (this is my favourite chore!). 

Ways to Make Chores Fun

Ways to Make Chores Fun | Tiger and Tim Animals

It can get tricky for parents and grown-ups to get their Tiger Cubs to do jobs around the house. But Mums and Dads (and other adults at home) can help turn these tedious chores into a ‘special job’ or ‘a mission’ for the kids to accomplish. 

With our tips, kids might just find doing their household chores are as fun as watching their favourite online educational videos for kids!

  1. Turn chores into a friendly competition

urn chores into a friendly competition | Tiger and Tim Animals

There is no denying that kids are naturally competitive, so why not turn chores into an exciting and friendly competition between siblings? You can split a big task into equal parts and let them race to finish their assignment first. Make it even more fun by turning on your announcer’s voice, complete with funny nicknames to really get them in the mood!

  1. Play pretend

Toddlers and younger kids love playing pretend! Ask them to put away their toys while pretending to be their favourite animal (a tiger I hope) or a character in a book you have read together or someone from a learning video for kids that they might have seen. Play along with them to make things even more fun!

  1. Scavenger Hunt

Do your Tiger Cubs love I Spy books? Then make cleaning up more fun by turning it into a big scavenger hunt! Let the kids find and pick up the clutter around the house and the one who collects the most number of items, wins! They would have to return those items to their proper place afterwards, as part of the game.

  1. Sing a happy working song

Sing a happy working song | Tiger and Tim Animals

If there’s one thing Snow White and Giselle of Enchanted have taught us (aside from animals being the best clean-up buddies), it’s that chores can be a bit more fun with music! There are different versions of clean-up songs from online educational videos for toddlers that you can play whilst doing the  deeds, or you can even make up your own! Better yet, you can use our new singalong song that we featured in the fourth episode of our educational videos for toddlers and kids written by none other than Tim Hague himself!

Not much of a singer? Then play upbeat songs that you and the kids can dance along with while completing an otherwise dull chore. 

  1. Stickers

Stickers | Tiger and Tim Animals

Stickers are excellent to use when rewarding simple accomplishments. Create a chore chart and display it in a prominent area of the house. Use stickers that are fun and colourful, maybe even stickers of characters or animals that the children like. 

For every task or chore done, reward your Tiger Cub with a sticker on their chart. If he or she achieves the desired number of stickers by the end of the week, then a simple treat is in order! 

One trick to make chore charts more effective is to change them up regularly. You can also involve the youngsters in making the chore chart, or even choosing the stickers that they want to use.

Tiger and Tim Learning Videos Can Make Chores More Interesting For Kids!

Turn a tedious task, like sorting out washing or folding clothes, to something more enjoyable by playing Tiger and Tim episodes in the background. You can also talk about what your Tiger Cubs liked about the episode, such as Quiz Corner’s interesting facts or the tongue twisters from Tiger’s Tongue Twisters! Last but definitely not least, emphasise that doing their little bit for others is showing kindness, respect and love, and those are all qualities Tiger and Tim encourage in everything that we do. 

Chores may be boring, but these tasks teach the little ones (and Tigers!) many valuable lessons and skills that they will use forever. AND, with a bit of creativity, a positive attitude, and a little help from Tiger and Tim online learning videos for kids, Tiger Cubs can even enjoy those cheeky chores!

Why Art is Important and How Tiger and Tim Learning Videos Help Foster Creativity (Written by The Art Critique)

The Art Critique is here to enlighten everyone on the importance of art in a child’s development. Creativity and other essential skills can be developed by producing arts and crafts, drawings, and paintings. Here’s how Tiger and Tim learning videos can encourage it.The Art Critique | Tiger and Tim Animals

Well, hello boys and girls, it’s me, the mustachioed wonder, THE ART CRITIQUE from Tiger and Tim online learning videos for kids! Tiger invited me over to his blog so I can share my expertise and wisdom about art to all our grown-up readers out there. Much to Tim’s delight, of course (Hello Dear Tim)!importance of making art | Tiger and Tim Animals

As you can tell, art is something I am very passionate about. I BREATHE art, I am not called The Art Critique for nothing! So I would like to talk about the importance of making art to all Tiger Cubs. You see, Mums, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, Grandpas, and Grandmas, art is not just about making a big mess on the kitchen table or doodling on the pristine white walls of the house – art, for children’s development, is essential. You may not see it now, but you might just be raising the next Picasso! Our educational videos for toddlers and older kids (where I am prominently featured *ahem*) can further encourage love and appreciation for the arts!

I now have my trusty monocle on so let’s talk about art, for art’s sake! 

Developmental Benefits of Art

Aside from developing Tiger Cubs’ creativity, art also helps in many other developmental milestones.

Motor Skills

Motor Skills | Tiger and Tim ART

Making art would typically include gripping the paintbrush or crayon, which would greatly help with a toddler’s fine motor skills. When doing craft projects, kids could also make use of child-safety scissors, which can help develop their dexterity. All these fine motor skill exercises are necessary in many different ways and, most importantly, in learning how to write.

Language and Communication

Language and Communication | Tiger and Tim

If you know me from our educational videos for kids, you know that I LOVE talking about art, art, and more art, which is why doing arts and crafts can significantly help with a Tiger Cub’s language and communication skills.

Being immersed in making art can enrich a young one’s vocabulary – from distinguishing the different colours to talking about their work using descriptive words, as I do! Arts and crafts activities can also help children learn about different shapes and even actions words.

Critical Thinking Skills

Critical Thinking Skills | Tiger and Tim Animals

Making art allows children to explore, to test out what works, and what does not. As they create, they explore different possibilities and work out the problems – all these decisions hone their critical thinking skills. So art not only makes Tiger Cubs creative, but smarter, too!

Social-Emotional Skills

Social-Emotional Skills | Tiger and Tim Animals

Social-emotional development refers to a child’s expression of his or her experiences and how they manage thir emotions. Art itself is self-expression in its purest form, and it can help children express a wide range of their very colourful emotions, especially when their vocabulary is still emerging.

Social-emotional development | Tiger and Tim Animals

Apart from helping Tiger Cubs express their emotions, they can also learn to tell how they feel about others. This is what I do in my segment of our educational learning videos for kids, since the children learn to show appreciation for others’ artworks and value other Cubs’ effort to create their masterpiece! Creating paintings and other works of art with others also helps children understand the importance of sharing and taking turns.

How to Foster Creativity at Home

How to Foster Creativity at Home | Tiger and Tim Animals

As you have seen in Tiger and Tim online learning videos for kids, you know that I am a true master of the arts! You can also help your Tiger Cubs develop an artistic eye (monocle not necessary)!

Let your Tiger Cubs’ inner ARTISTE shine through by fostering art in your own home! Here’s how parents and grown-ups can do it:

Tiger Cubs' inner ARTISTE | Tiger and Tim Art

  1. Embrace the mess – it may be a headache now, but the mess is actually a good sign that your little one’s mind is hard at work! To help you keep the clutter to a minimum, set up an art station in your house, and have a drop cloth or old newspapers handy. If the weather permits, you can have the children paint outdoors, too!
  2. Be an audience, not a director – avoid giving Tiger Cubs directions when they are creating something, especially if it’s free-form. Instead of being a director, be an encouraging and supportive audience instead, and let your child’s masterpiece come to life!
  3. Talk about art – once your child’s artwork is done, let them express how they feel about it! Talk about what they created, the colours they used, and even how they made the piece. This will enrich their vocabulary and develop their communication skills so they can grow up to be master art appreciators, like me!

Encouraging Creativity with Tiger and Tim Educational Videos For Toddlers

Tiger and Tim Educational Videos For Toddlers

Learning videos for kids, like Tiger and Tim, can inspire young minds to create their own artworks! Tiger and Tim episodes always feature me in “Picture This”, where I share artworks of Tiger Cubs all over the world! 

The children can be inspired by me and our episode’s theme to create their own masterpiece. Our latest episode is all about food, so watching it can also inspire them to reach for a snack!

Grown-ups can also encourage the little ones to share their ideas on the different works of art featured in my Art Gallery. Doing so will not only develop children’s communication skills, but adults can also guide them in exploring their emotions.

So what are you waiting for? Start creating those fantastic works of art and send us a photo of it through this link. I will be waiting for your fabulous masterpieces!

How Tiger and Tim Educational Videos for Kids Can Get Children Talking

Tiger and Tim | Learning Videos for kids

language is one of the essential skills Tiger Cubs should start developing from a young age. Here’s how TigerandTim can help with that!

If there’s one thing Tim loves to do (a lot), it’s TALKING! It’s a good thing he’s not bad at it, otherwise, we couldn’t make Tiger and Tim learning videos for kids! I am a little too shy to talk on the show yet…

Skills Tiger Cubs | Tiger and Tim

Whilst I never learned to roar like most tigers in the wild (sadly), Tiger Cubs learn to communicate with grown-ups pretty easily. Mums, Dads, and other adults at home can take advantage of their Tiger Cubs’ natural tendency to pick up a language in different ways. Playing and reading together, watching free educational videos for kids online, or merely allotting time for conversation can help with a child’s language development and communication skills.

How Parents Can Help with Developing Communication Skills

Parents Can Help with Developing Communication Skills | Tiger and Tim

A Tiger Cub’s brain is like a sponge – they can absorb information quickly from the moment they are born until they are in their adolescent years. They need to be exposed to any language at an early age, as this serves as a good start in developing their language skills. 

Tiger Cub's brain is like a sponge | Tiger and Tim

From the moment they are born, babies communicate with their parents and other grown-ups – from crying, giggles, gurgles, and other gestures. By the time they turn about a year old, babies also learn how to use their bodies to communicate. Pointing using their finger is considered a communication milestone because it’s an opportunity for Cubs to get people to notice something that he or she saw. Just like how I communicate with Tim when I’m hungry!

As Tiger Cubs grow older, of course, they also build their vocabulary and learn how to use words in a conversation. The more they talk and communicate with others, the better their language development becomes. Watching adults or older siblings at home talking to one other, AND being exposed to online learning videos for kids, can serve as a learning guide for children to be more effective communicators.

There are many other different ways grown-ups can foster young Cubs’ natural tendency to communicate. Here are some of our ROAR-SOME suggestions:

Talk Time

Having interactive conversations is PURR-FECT in developing communication and language skills. In a conversation, grown-ups can model grammar and syntax rules, as well as turn-taking. You can also serve as a guide on how to pronounce unfamiliar words.

Talk Time | Tiger and Tim

Communicating with your Tiger Cubs is simple! You can start by talking about the books you read together or the online educational videos for kids they love to watch. You can also talk about the day’s activities or things that you enjoy doing together. They don’t have to respond to you all the time. Sometimes, their responses may not even be related to the topic of the conversation. That’s okay! You can feed off of their answers to keep the conversation going.

Three Strikes

Toddlers need to be exposed to a particular word several times before they can effectively include it in their vocabulary. One way grown-ups can help is through repetition. You can repeat a word three times in succession in different sentences and contexts.

“Look at that red car!”

“That is Daddy’s car.”

“Do you want to ride in the car with me to the park?”

This way, kids can notice and retain the new word more effectively.

Develop Language and Communication Skills with Tiger and Tim Learning Videos!

Watching learning videos is a TIGER-RIFFIC way to develop communication skills!

Our show is an excellent resource for fostering a Tiger Cubs’ acquisition of language! Tiger and Tim learning videos are highly interactive, stimulating a child’s language and communication development. 

Tiger and Tim episode segments, like Storytime with Tiger and Tim, Quiz Corner, Picture This, and Your Tigers are great conversation springboards for grown-ups and kids. Our Joke Shop can also help Tiger Cubs get creative with their words and teach them all about the English language’s different nuances. Meanwhile, Tiger’s Tongue Twisters develop their pronunciation and enunciation of English words. The best part of this is that children learn ALL of these things without them even realizing it! Clever, isn’t it?

Furthermore, other online videos for toddlers, such as action songs, like ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes’, can help Tiger Cubs associate the word with a particular noun and action. Gestures are considered communication, too! And who can say no to some singing and dancing? You know I can’t!

Space Travel with Tiger and Tim

Every one of us has an innate need to communicate with others (even Tigers!). Being effective communicators in the future will not only be useful for Tiger Cubs in school, but it can also help develop their character and be a good little Tiger, like me!

Foster a Love For Reading at Home: Tips on Raising a Reader from Tiger and Tim Educational Videos!


Fostering a love for reading is easy. Here are some easy tips to help raise readers with Tiger and Tim educational videos.

Books are my best friend, aside from Tim, of course! Reading stories is one of Tim and I’s favourite things to do together, along with watching Tiger and Tim educational videos and playing outdoors! Actually, getting lost in a good book can make me feel like I am exploring the great outdoors.


Reading is an essential skill to develop not only for school but for many other reasons. Not only does it help with vocabulary, comprehension and imagination, among others, but it can also make Tiger Cubs more empathetic, socially aware, and just a good little Tiger!

Parents and other grown-ups at home play a significant role in fostering a love for reading amongst their kids. With youngsters needing to spend more time at home nowadays, reading books is a great way to bond as a family. Exposing the little ones to age-appropriate books is an excellent start to encourage reading. There are soooo many ways that Mums and Dads (and the rest of the family) can engage kids with books. Here are some tips to help develop your child’s affinity for books.


  1. Model the behaviour

Tiger Cubs are very impressionable, and they look up to the cool grown-up cats at home – to know which behaviours are acceptable and which are not. If you want your kids to love reading, then one way to encourage them is for them to see you reading! Reading books to them does not count; it has to be your own choice of text or any reading material that they see you thoroughly enjoy. This way, your kids associate books and reading, in general, as something enjoyable.

Like watching fun videos for kids, reading can also be a positive experience for the family. You can assign a specific reading time at home wherein every member of the family reads together. Parents are also encouraged to talk about the books they are reading (or have read) to their kids. Doing so can cultivate curiosity and open communication between you and your Tiger Cubs.

  1. Make books accessible

Having books at home is essential, but making them accessible for the Tiger Cubs will further develop their love for reading. 


One way to make books more available for the tots is by using a front-facing bookshelf. Since young ones don’t know how to read yet, they rely on the books’ cover when choosing a book; thus, front-facing bookshelves are PURR-FECT for little ones. Furthermore, independent Tiger Cubs can easily reach for a book without having to ask for your help. This simple act of getting a book themselves can make it easier for them to read on their own!

  1. Repetition is okay

Some kids tend to like the same book for a loooong time. I ask Tim to read my current top choice at least twice a day! Sorry, Tim!

You might feel tired reading the same book to your Tiger Cub for over ten times in a day but, keep in mind that repetition can actually be beneficial! Repeating the books can help with their speech development and in building their vocabulary. And if your Tiger Cub is like me, we just looooove knowing what will happen next! So say, for example, your kids love animals, then learning about animals through books is a TIGER-RIFFIC way for them to explore, even if that means reading the same book over and over again.

  1. Take trips to the library or bookstore

Another way to make reading and books fun is through taking trips to the library or a bookstore. Going to the bookstore or library and letting the Cubs explore can make them excited about books! While going out may not be an option nowadays (gotta stay safe, cool cats!), you may try to give them the same experience through organising a small book-exchange group with other families in the area or with your Tiger Cub’s classmates. 

You may also take advantage of e-books that can be downloaded online. Some libraries even have programs for borrowing e-books! Which is so ROAR-SOME, right? Just don’t forget to let your Tiger Cubs choose the books that they like to make them feel involved in the process.

  1. Embrace technology

Many parents believe that technology and reading books don’t sit well together. With young kids’ (and Tigers hehe) having short attention spans, using technology can make reading more interactive and exciting!

The Storytime segment in Tiger and Tim (the best part!) is excellent for making stories come alive! The vivid animations in Tiger and Tim educational videos make the stories more exciting and fun for your Tiger Cubs, and do you know what happens when learning becomes fun? It becomes more effective, especially for young Tiger Cubs!


Foster Literacy with Fun Videos for Kids from Tiger and Tim!

Tiger and Tim educational videos are PURR-FECT in making the most out of screen time. Reading and learning become more effective when kids are engaged and enjoying every second of it.

Using Educational Videos for Children in the New Normal: How Parents Can Help with Distance Learning at Home

Nowadays, going to school means going online. Here’s how parents  can help their kids to navigate distance learning through educational videos and other tips!

Children love educational learning videos, and they also love going back to school! But school is looking a little bit different this year…


This school year brings in something new to most of us. It is not what many Tiger Cubs are used to. It also comes with its own set of challenges. But distance learning has its TIGER-RIFFIC perks, too! You may not realise it now, but with your little ones home most of the time this year so far (and for many, in the months ahead too), this is the PURR-FECT opportunity for them to build on their family life with you and their siblings (and their own tigers/pets, too!). 

The new normal can be tough, but there are several ways parents can help their learners at home adjust to distance learning and make the road smoother and more fun! 

From watching educational videos for children to breaking out into an impromptu concert performance (my favourite thing to do in the shower!), parents can make the experience more memorable for their kids. 


Here are some of the ROAR-SOME ways to help your preschoolers (and older kids) with distance learning:


  1. Create a routine

Your Cubs’ day in school is highly-structured, and you can do the same thing at home. A routine can significantly help young learners feel less anxious about the entire situation. In comparison, older kids can work to a more relaxed schedule. 

For your preschoolers, you can create a timetable showing the specific activities that need to be done throughout the day. Go ahead and use colourful pictures, crayons, stickers, and stamps to mark which activities are finished. By keeping track of their schedule, they also feel accomplished! 

  1. Start the day with F-U-N!

Speaking of activities, teachers recommend that young Tiger Cubs start an e-class with something fun to perk up their energy and keep them motivated. You can do some light stretching and exercise. There are a lot of fun videos for children online used for physical activities, that you can choose from. If exercising is not your thing, you can try singing and dancing to your favourite tunes to get those positive vibes coming! Not only will a fun start to the day help your Cubs be ready for the day, but it can also do wonders for your mood and disposition.


  1. Set up a study space

The environment that you create for your Tiger Cubs makes a big difference, so setting up their workstation in a conducive area is very important.


The dedicated workspace doesn’t have to be grand (no matter what Pinterest tells you). As long as the space is clean, comfortable, and well-lit and ventilated properly, then it’s the right work area for your little one. Make sure that all toys are kept so that the kids will not be tempted to play. Noise level at home needs to be as minimal as possible, too, since the children may be watching educational learning videos, and the noise can be distracting.


  1. Keep in touch with the teachers

First of, TEACHERS ARE PAW-SOME for everything that they do for their students.


Teachers have always been parents’ partners when it comes to their children’s education. But distance learning made this partnership much more significant. Frequent communication is essential to let teachers know how your Cubs are faring at home. You can also ask for help with things that may be unclear, or how to manage activities. Most teachers are more than happy to extend their helping paws to parents!

  1. Let go of perfect expectations

Parents have expectations for their kids, and sometimes, Mums and Dads forget that their Tiger Cubs are still learning new things. Therefore, not everything will be done correctly at the first try – and that’s okay!

Letting go of the idea of perfection allows Tiger Cubs to fully experience learning – from committing mistakes to learning from them. But it doesn’t mean that parents should not follow the expectations or standards set by the school. Mums and Dads can help their young kids achieve their learning goals through scaffolding, or taking one little step at a time.


Make Learning Exciting with Tiger and Tim’s Fun Educational Videos!

Whether today’s lesson is about the planets or jungle animals, education can be supplemented through fun and interactive learning videos for kids – like Tiger and Tim!

Tiger and Tim episodes are great resources to complement the lessons from school. We have Story time, arts and crafts, exciting facts, and fun tongue twisters! Children are acquiring skills and gaining new knowledge without them realizing it. Making learning fun – that is what Tiger and Tim is all about.


Distance learning during the new normal may not be the ideal way to learn. However, learning can take place anywhere – may it be in school or at home! After all, parents will always be Tiger Cubs’ first teachers.


Lots of Love, as always, Tiger xoxoxoxoxo

Viewing is a Language Skill – Here’s How Kids Can Make the Most of It

Educational Videos | Tiger and Tim

Kids nowadays are digital natives, and one way to help with their language development is through watching good quality educational videos, like TigerAndTim!

Learning While Having Fun

Learning While Having Fun | Tiger and Tim

I love learning and exploring new things, just like all Tiger Cubs! One fun  way parents can help cultivate your own cubs’ natural curiosity and love for learning is through watching educational videos at home.

Not a lot of parents realise that viewing is a skill. But it is considered as a language skill, because it will greatly help with your Tiger Cubs’ language development. Most educational videos (like Tiger and Tim!) make viewing more interactive and exciting , so your Tiger Cubs are learning A LOT without them even realising it! So it’s definitely a win-win for Tiger Cubs and parents!

Read on to find out how you can make the most out of learning through viewing below!

Viewing as a Skill

Viewing as a Skill | Tiger and Tim

We are all too familiar with the four macro skills reading, writing, listening and speaking. But language researchers believe that there is a fifth macro skill, one that resonates with the times: That skill is none other than viewing!

Viewing as a language skill is defined as the process of understanding visual texts that come in various formats, such as TV shows, advertisements, films, videos, and images. In short, viewing is the act of ‘reading’ visual cues. So it’s like reading a book while looking at pictures, animations, and listening to accompanying sounds!

When it comes to acquiring and developing language understanding, it makes sense that viewing is considered valuable, especially nowadays. Online video-sharing platforms have also made audio-visual, multi-sensory texts even more available for children. With so many schools and families opting to do distance and online classes this school year because of the global pandemic, the role of learning through videos for kids plays a significant role in their language development.

Make the most out of viewing

Make the most out of viewing | Tiger and Tim

Parents often dismiss viewing as an essential skill, thinking that most of the videos for kids are only meant for entertainment purposes. However, when using age-appropriate learning videos,  viewing can aid in various aspects of a child’s language development. 

Videos are purr-fect tools to learn English or any other language. Furthermore, viewing is an TIGER-RIFFIC way to develop children’s literacy as learning English through stories – that combine pictures and sounds – is considered more exciting and stimulating for your ever-so curious cubs!

TIGER-RIFFIC | Tiger and Tim Animals

One way to make the most out of viewing is to ensure that you choose learning videos for kids that are of good quality. Not all learning videos are created equal, and young learners are not yet able to accurately discern which ones are good for them. Therefore, Tiger Cubs would need their cool parents and educators to watch these videos and their children and students to ensure that learning actually does occur. And wouldn’t it be more fun to watch videos together?

Try asking your kids simple comprehension questions after watching a video, such as “Who are the characters in the story?” or “Where did the story take place?” to gauge whether they understood the material or not. It could also help them be more engaged in the story and fosters bonding between you and your Tiger Cubs.

Tiger and Tim Learning Videos

Tiger and Tim Learning Videos | Learning Videos for Kids

Stories infused with animation are sure fire hits for young children. These learning videos for toddlers and even for older kids not only entertain them, but they can also help build language skills such as comprehension and vocabulary.

Tiger and Tim episodes come with the Storytime segment, wherein a fun and creative story is presented with vivid graphics and animation. Storytime’s unique stories are targeted at preschool-aged kids and above, but older children (and even adults!) also find them enjoyable. It’s my most favourite part of the show. Well, the ENTIRE show is actually my favourite!

After the story, you should ask simple comprehension questions to check for understanding, and words that may not be familiar to them. You may then proceed to talk about what they liked about the story or what they might have found interesting in the video. As parents, you are very much encouraged to share your own insights with your Tiger Cubs, to make way for some nice casual conversation over snacks. (Okay, so snacks are not really necessary, but are very much welcome!).

Tiger and Tim's Jungle Adventure

Viewing, when used correctly, is an effective way to aid children’s language development. Parents can use learning videos readily available online to nurture the literacy, curiosity, and creativity of their young learners at home. So make the most out of screen time with Tiger and Tim!


Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

Hey, Tiger Cubs! I was so excited to release our latest episode – Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure! Have you seen the show? Tim and I had so much fun! Rooooar!

In our new episode, we went to a lush and sprawling jungle! There are many different kinds of wild animals in the jungle, as well as plants and trees. Did you know that more than half of the world’s species live in the wild, including me!

Is it a jungle or a rainforest? | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

Is it a jungle or a rainforest?

A lot of humans usually get confused between a jungle and a rainforest. Some think they are the same and can’t point out the differences.

Jungles and rainforests are quite alike, actually. Huge trees and small plants grow densely (close to each other) in the wild and the rainforest. Both places are hot and humid, and there is frequent rain, too. Good thing that Tim brought his handy umbrella when we went!

The most significant difference between the two is that the trees in the rainforest have layers, called canopies. The canopies make it difficult for the sun to reach the ground. Sunlight is more common in the jungle, that’s why plants grow thickly on the floor, much more so than in the rainforest.

India’s vast wilderness | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

The most famous jungle is probably the Amazon. It is so big that it is located in over nine countries! No talk about the jungle is complete without also mentioning India’s vast wilderness, which inspired the classic novel by Rudyard Kipling called “The Jungle Book”. 

Jungle Animals

Aside from me, there are so many other cool animals in the jungle. We’re all friends, of course… Most of the time!

Jungle Animals | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

The Elephants | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

We met several wild animals as we were walking in the jungle during our story in Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure. There were no Tigers (except for me), leopards and jaguars but just so you know, they are the big cats living in the wild. There are also chimpanzees who love to climb trees and swing from vines, and the mighty gorillas who mostly spend their days on land. Let’s not forget about the gentlest creature in the jungle either – the elephants! Don’t let their size scare you because they are really friendly!

animals in the jungle are zebras

Other land animals in the jungle are zebras, with their black and white stripes. You can see them in one of the pictures from our latest sorry. They may all look alike, but actually, the pattern of their stripes are unique to each zebra. Long-necked giraffes also live in the jungle. They are the tallest animal because of their long neck. That’s why it’s easy for them to eat the leaves and fruits of high trees. Last but certainly not the least, are big bears who just looooove to eat honey! They don’t just go after the honey though, they actually eat the whole beehive! Wow!

Slithery snakes | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

There are many different birds in the jungle, too! Like the long-billed toucan and the colourful macaws! But not all birds found in the wild are colourful, some have brown and beige colours that make it easier for them to blend into their environment.

Slithery snakes, such as the python and anaconda are in the wild as well. Those two are the biggest species of snakes, with the longest python reaching up to 9.6 metres! That’s really long!

Amazing Space Facts for Kids

Our second episode is already out and we are over the moon with excitement!

Did you enjoy the episode, Tiger Cubs? We did!

Tiger Cubs | Tiger and Tim’sSpace

In our new episode, Tim and I went to space and explored the planets. It was such a blast and I can’t wait to go back soon. Would you like to come with me? (And do you think we should bring Tim along with us?)

If you want to know more about our universe and just how cool it is, I’ve gathered ten interesting facts about space and space travel! Are you ready? Let’s go!

Counting Stars

Counting Stars | Tiger and Tim’s Space

Scientists believe that there are soooooo many stars in space. So many, in fact, that we would not be able to count them all. It is believed that there are more stars than there are grains of sand on all of the beaches in the entire world! Phew, now that’s a lot!

Do you know what the most famous star out there is? No, not me, and especially not Tim! I’m a superstar, not a star. However, the most popular star in space is none other than Mr. Sun himself!

Laika the Dog

I just learned that I am not the first animal in space. What a bummer! But it’s okay because the very first animal to ever go around outer space is just as cool as me!

On November 3rd, 1957, Laika, a mixed-breed dog from The Soviet Union (what is now Russia), became the very first living being to orbit the Earth. She rode a small satellite aircraft and stayed in space for about four days. Now that is one out-of-this-world road trip!

Silent Space

Did you know that space is completely silent? Because there is no air (called atmosphere) that surrounds space, you cannot hear anything there! Well, except for the time when Tim couldn’t stop talking whilst we were out there. The human just loves the sound of his own voice!

Pluto the Dwarf

Pluto the Dwarf | Tiger and Tim’s Space Travel

No, not Pluto the dog, but Pluto the dwarf planet!

Discovered in 1930 by astronomer Clyde William Tombaugh, Pluto (the planet) was named the ninth planet after the sun. However, Pluto was named a dwarf planet in 2006 because it was too small to be called an actual planet.

Don’t worry, Pluto (the planet), we still think you are amazing, no matter your size!

Life on Mars

Life on Mars | Tiger and Tim’s Space Travel

Astronomers believed that liquid water only exists on Earth and not on any other planet. But recently, NASA or the National Aeronautics and Space Administration discovered that there’s water on Mars, too! That’s why many scientists now believe that we could live on Mars someday. 

Another fun fact about Mars: The sunset there has a bluish colour. Now I wouldn’t mind watching a blue sunset!

Huge Sun

Did you know that our sun is 300,000 times heavier than the Earth and that you can fit more than one million Earths inside the sun! Wow, it’s so much bigger!

But even though the sun is way bigger than our home planet, it is still not the biggest star in space. In fact, the sun is considered to be a medium-sized star. I wonder how big the biggest star there is… why don’t you Tiger Cubs do some research and find out!

Hottest Planet

I love the summertime, but the heat can get a little bit too much on some days. Even if we sweat a lot during summer, that’s no match for life on the planet Venus. It is so hot on Venus that lead (a kind of metal) would melt on its surface! The exact average temperature on Venus is 864 degrees Fahrenheit. Yikes! I wouldn’t want to go there, especially during those hot summer days!

Space Junk

Space Junk | Tiger and Tim’s Space Travel

In our second episode, Tim told you about the first-ever Moon Landing that happened in 1969. Even before Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong stepped onto the Moon, there had been other astronauts who went to space, and there have been many since 1969 too. All of these astronauts left junk – or human-made objects – on space. Scientists and astronauts call this “space junk” and there are about 500,000 pieces of space junk orbiting space today.

I’m glad I didn’t add to the space junk, I’m just not so sure about Tim! Naughty Tim.

No Walking Allowed

Fancy taking a walk in outer space? Well, you can’t do it on Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. These planets are made up entirely of gas so there’s no surface to walk on! Ahhhhhh.

Designer Spacesuit 

If you want to go to space, then you’ll need a spacesuit – just like mine when I flew to space with Tim. But do you know how much a NASA space suit is? A whopping 200 million dollars! That’s a LOT of money, Tiger Cubs. 

The reason a spacesuit is so expensive is that NASA had to make sure that the suits would be the best ones for the astronauts (and for me, too!).

There you have it, friends! There are so many more interesting facts about space because it’s just that cool! But we don’t have any more time so we had to stop at 10! I hope you learned something new today.

Why Your Kids Need To Watch Tiger and Tim

Tiger and Tim episodes | Tiger Tim

Tiger and Tim will definitely become first on your list of educational videos for kids, but why should people watch our first episode?

The Search Is Over!

Mums and Dads, are you looking for fun, exciting and educational videos for your kids at home?

Well, your search is over. I am here! Yes, it’s me, TIGER!!

Former BBC presenter and reporter, Tim Hague, together with me, Tiger, (his best friend and the world’s cheekiest celebrity), are ready to take the internet by storm! The “Tiger and Tim” show – which is part animation and part “human” – is now available on YouTube and across social media. I look handsome in it:)

Now, you might ask: “Why watch Tiger and Tim when there are so many happy videos for kids online?” Well, apart from me being in it and being very clever and very cute, here are a number of other reasons why our show should be number one on your kiddo’s watchlist, and why it will be on the watchlist of children and adults all around the world very soon:

It’s A Fun Adventure
It’s A Fun Adventure | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

With our children being stuck at home for months and months because of COVID-19, they are always looking for exciting and entertaining shows to watch on the TV, internet and on your phones/tablets (I like using Tim’s phone for this)! With Tiger and Tim being available for free on YouTube Kids as well as lots of other original content on across social media (you can see our social accounts on our website), you can ensure that your “Tiger Cub” is watching something adventurous, family-friendly, and extremely educational. Both Tim and I really want to improve their literacy levels and help them fall in love with the English language! You should know that I also speak Tiger as well as English.

And, did we tell you how entertaining we are too? We have adults continuously telling us how much they love our show and that they too want to watch! I mean, why wouldn’t they? Who doesn’t love Tigers? Who doesn’t want their child to consume high-quality, highly funny, and highly-educational content? On top of that, I enjoy swinging from trees and making fun of his best friend Tim! Yes! Each episode of Tiger and Tim is full of relatable jokes, happy times, and child-friendly challenges. There will never be negative messages, only happy or important ones, and we guarantee we will bring a smile to your and your family’s face in every single one of our feature-length episodes (around 20-30 minutes).

It’s Very Educational

It’s Very Educational | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

The main difference between Tiger and Tim and other children shows on YouTube and elsewhere, is its purpose. Tiger and Tim aim to improve children’s literacy. Kid’s literacy, reading, and comprehension are so important and through our videos, your kids will develop all of this, as well as increase their moral values, kindness and sense of humour. AND, they get to watch me showing silly old Tim who is boss!!

Our regular educational videos for kids will teach children about valuable life lessons such as health and wellness, love, friendship, and so much more. Both Tim and I believe that teaching kids about respect, kindness, and other virtues will make a huge positive impact in their lives, your lives, and the future of our world. It’s very important you know.

As Tim often says: “a key motivation for both Tiger and Tim is that education is best when it doesn’t really feel like education. That is our goal, and everything that we do is designed to develop, nurture and help our community of Tiger Cubs.” Tim really wants to change the lives of children around the world for the better, and now, more than ever in our lifetimes, we all need the joy that Tiger and Tim bring.

Mums and Dads Will Love It Too!

Mums and Dads Will Love It Too | Tiger and Tim

Kids will undoubtedly love me, and maybe Tim too! But our motivation is to bring joy to all people of all nationalities, and that’s why we know (because many have already told us) that Mums, Dads, and kids of all ages will binge-watch our show. In using social media to promote our project for good, we are harnessing the very media source that is negatively affecting reading levels around the world. Except, we’re using it in a positive way – to promote education, kids’ literacy and good values – and we are doing it in a way that the kids will have no idea it is educational! It just appears fun, but everything about the show is about personal and educational development (and about me looking fabulous).

In times as tough as these, wholesome family humour can be the key to a happy mind! As you scroll and watch our new episodes each and every month, you will realise that Tiger and Tim are not your typical kids learning double-act – what we provide is a family bonding moment, a teaching opportunity, and a 20-30-minute adventure that you will watch again and again and again. This is escapism at its finest and we want you adults, to enjoy it just as much as your little ones. Please give it a try! I promise you won’t regret it!

Lots of Love, Tiger xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Fun Family Activities To Do At Home

Let's Have Some Fun At Home | Tiger And Tim

Bored in the house? Tiger will teach you a few ways to make your life at home a little more fun and educational!

Let’s Have Some Fun At Home!

As a wild animal, staying at home sucks. 

I miss running around with other Tiger Cubs, I miss eating on my favourite ice cream in the city, I miss strolling around London and teasing my best friend Tim 🙁

Although I kinda feel a bit sad, Tim always assures me that our home is the safest place on Earth right now. His Mum and Dad agree too. 

Now, as a roarsome international celebrity living with my best friend, what do we do to cope with the boredom and loneliness at home?

My fellow Tiger Cubs will love these too, so read attentively parents (yes, I’m looking at you, Mummy and Daddy). Hmmm!

Create Arts and Crafts

Create Arts and Crafts | Tiger and Tim’s

Does your little Tiger Cub love colours, shapes, and forms like me? Creating an arts and crafts project is something that they will surely looooooove. Whether it is a doodle, a sketch, papier-mache, or a painting, producing an art project during quarantine will develop your Tiger Cub’s creativity and skillfulness.

To highlight your kiddos’ talents, you can submit their masterpiece to appear on the Tiger and Tim Show, a new animated series for kids on YouTube that was launched on July 1, 2020. Having your kid’s drawing or collage featured on the show can kickstart their career as the world’s leading kid artist!

Learn New Things

Learn New Things | Tiger and Tim’s Jungle Adventure

Staying at home is the purr-fect time to learn new skills and talents. Did you know that I am sharpening my English reading skills with Anglia Education? That’s an adult education provider for people who don’t speak English as their natural language (like me!). With constant practice reading English I learn about the difference between ‘your’ and ‘you’re’ and many other things! Paw-some right?

Kids and older kids (yes, we are talking about all of you adults reading this!) can also learn new jokes, riddles, and tongue twisters by watching our educational videos for kids on YouTube. Tiger and Tim, for example, has a segment called “The Joke Shop” where Tim tells me a riddle, and I then have to guess the answer (I always win!).

Read Stories and Tales

Read Stories and Tales | Tiger and Tim

Tim and I really love stories! Before we go to bed, Tim reads tales from a storybook until I fall asleep. This helps me learn how to read English and to appreciate good values and good morals. If you watch the first episode of our learning video for kids, Tiger and Tim, my best buddy Tim told the story of a cheeky rat! Yikes. It definitely taught me that I should wash my hands regularly!

If your Tiger Cubs want to watch audio-visual stories, they can read along with Tim on every episode of Tiger and Tim. By watching educational videos for children regularly, your kids can improve their reading, literacy, and learning skills. And what’s more, they get to meet me too. I promise that if you give us a chance, you or they will not regret it!!

Lots of Love, Tiger xoxoxoxoxo
