Watch Mandarin Shows for Kids Online

We typically watch shows from this list a couple times a week.  While my kids are still in the beginning stages of learning Mandarin, exposure helps.  They don’t understand everything, but as they learn more and more their comprehension will grow.

3. “马丁的早晨” (Martin Morning – 52 episodes)

Another good show is The Magic Gourd by Disney.  It may be available from Netflix or your library.  It has a Mandarin language track so your child can watch the show in English and Mandarin.  It also has English subtitles that you can use with the Mandarin track.


  1. Do any of these have English subtitles?

  2. Thank you. Our 3 year old came from China 4 months ago. I’m sure she’ll enjoy these. We’ve seen Magic Gourd from Netflix. 🙂
