My 10 year old daughter Bella and I have a crush on YouTube. She mainly watches gaming videos while I have an entirely separate list of channels I watch every day (to come soon).
While we both love YouTube, it’s hard for me to sit and watch a gaming video and the content I watch is too boring or not age-appropriate for her. It’s taken a couple years because we’re both picky, but here are 4 channels that we both get excited about when a new video is uploaded.
I actually saw a video of Tucker on Facebook before YouTube. It was called Dog Reviews Food with Grandpa. I showed Bella and her face lit up. She’s an extreme dog lover. With over 1.35 million subscribers, Tucker has a huge fan base with his mom Courtney. From pool days with friends to his first car wash, our eyes are glued to the screen from start to finish.

2. Dude Perfect
Unbeknownst to me, Dude Perfect had a crazy fan base before we discovered them on YouTube and then realized they also have a Nickelodeon show. They’re a group of 5 guys who do trick shots. Seems silly and it is, but it’s also entertaining. We like watching their Overtime show with different segments. Bella’s dad and I actually got her tickets to their show in Charlotte, NC for her birthday. It was surprisingly really good; adults and kids both had their eyes glued to the stage the entire time.
Who doesn’t love Ro and her two cute pups, Cookie and Blueberry? She started her YouTube channel with a series called Nerdy Nummies where she bakes. She is also an actress (she’s so good in Escape the Night) and author! We love watching the variety of videos she has. From baking to challenges to puppy videos – she has it all!
4. Collins Key
We couldn’t forget one of our all time favorites. Collins and his brother Devan regularly collaborate on the channel with food challenges, hacks, and our favorite – pancake art. We laugh mostly at the editing and their fast thinking. They don’t upload too often so when they do have a new video, we almost always have to watch immediately before bed.
Let me know in the comments if you like to watch any other videos with your kids. I could use any other recommendations to spice things up!
