How to Find the Best Kids’ Movies and TV Shows by Age on the iTunes Store

In previous posts, you’ve learned how to find the best apps for kids and games for kids on the App Store. Now let’s take a look at how and where to find Apple’s collections of top recommended movies and TV shows for kids in iTunes.

Spoiler alert — you’re in for a double-treat with these particular iTunes kids’ showcases. They enable you to make great kids’ media choices, not only on the basis of quality but also kids’ ages. iTunes groups its recommended kids’ movies and TV shows within the suggested age ranges of 2 to 4, 5 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to 13. Woo-whew! You don’t get this kind of (developmental) age guidance in the Apps for Kids and Games for Kids App Store collections and we’ve spent countless hours trying to fix that issue elsewhere. Thank you, Apple!

 

TIP: Bookmark this page to keep the iTunes “by age” links handy going forward. They appear as “Option 1″ below to access the collections from an iPad, iPhone or computer. “Option 2″ paths are also fairly straightforward, but depend on the  availability of “by age” links, which are spotty at best.
