Educational entertainment for children is slowly taking over the rankings for the most viewed videos on YouTube. Which isn’t surprising since if kids are going to be staring at screens for a decent portion of the day, it makes sense that the programming of choice among parents would be free to access, and better yet, educational. Miroshka TV’s Learning Colors Multi-Colored Eggs on the Farm is no exception. It’s an educational video for kids that has already racked up over 3.5 billion views in the two years since it was first uploaded.
It’s a fun, five minute video that teaches young children about different colors via (crudely) animated eggs on a farm. The video itself is narrated in Russian and teaches kids the names of different colors in Russian. The only parts of the video that aren’t in Russian is the music (which is Old MacDonald Had a Farm sung in English) and any subtitles that appear if you have them turned on. The video has a slow pace (some scenes are a bit long), but has funny, silly moments that will appeal to younger audiences.
