    My 3-year-old nephew loves Jake. So I know it pretty well from all the family get-togethers & babysitting!

    My 2 yr old loves Disney Junior – bar none.

    Was that your way of saying your babysitter needs to pay more attention to your kids? ;) Or are your kids too old to have a babysitter? *shrugs*

  5. Ally Oop says:

    Yay me. My 2 and 4 year old daughter adore both Doc McStuffins and Sophia.

  6. Dan says:

    Ah, Maria. Lovely Maria.

    Yay! My baby loves those three shows, in fact her birthday and Christmas presents all included various Doc, Sofia and Jake merchandise! It’s so weird I said only yesterday to my partner that I wonder if we’ll get more seasons, and that if we did I doubt TVLine would report it – glad to be proven wrong :)

    My kid will be so happy. Don’t know what we would do without Doc at our house. I think every single Christmas present was Doc McStuffins related this year.
