National Geographic’s offering for youngsters is everything you’d expect from the iconic and trusted brand. Packed full of fascinating videos on all things weird and wonderful for planet-loving kids, the content promises to make learning fun, and it certainly delivers. Bite-sized videos will keep your kids informed and entertained, on a diverse range of topics, from Can People Live Under the Sea and Weird But True, Fast Fact about how often kids blink, to Animal Showdown: Elephant vs Ant. The selection is truly awe-inspiring!
