Anyone have a child who is obsessed with watching YouTube videos? (…of other kids and even adults reviewing toys and playing with Play-Doh?) Truth is that I never planned to go public about this. It’s like a dirty little mommy secret that I let her watch these videos on the iPad so I can curl my hair and put on a little bit of makeup some mornings. I’m hoping that at least a few of you are nodding your heads out there. If not, oops. Honestly, I often create a play space for her when I shower so that she’s playing hands on with her dollhouse and other toys. And I will spill the beans and say that I’m currently working on a chore system that also includes designated or possibly earned iPad time so that we can curb this little obsession of hers. However, adults should take note now that YouTube is the second most used search engine after Google!
@lifeaseric and I both told her, semi-jokingly, that she should make her own Play-Doh toy review video. KC loved that idea so much and asked about it daily. I always prefer her playing with Play-Doh rather than watching others play with it…so as KC puts it so elequently, “Why the heck not?!” I took her to Target, let her pick out a new toy and some fresh Play-Doh (who else loves the smell of this stuff as much as me?), and filmed her with my iPhone as she opened the box and explored her new toy. I knew she was cute, but this video is so stinking adorable. She’s a natural on camera and talks to YouTubers like you are all sitting there in the room with her. Now, part of this is fueled by her having two older sisters that are pretty YouTube
crazy savvy. KC has even made a guest appearance on her oldest sister’s channel which you should check out also at MindYourManders. So to say she hasn’t been mentored and coached a little would not be totally accurate. Nonetheless, we were still pretty surprised! Watch out Kelly Rippa! Here comes KC!
So this is what you’ve all been waiting for…KC’s big YouTube debut!
Not sure yet if this is a one hit wonder or will develop into a “mini” series. (get it…mini…series? You’ll understand after watching) In any case, KC says “please ‘suskibe’ if you (or your kids) want to see more of me playing!” She’d also like to know if you have any requests. Thanks for watching! -lifeasallison
