A Show for the Whole Family

Having three kiddos, ages 11, 8 and soon to be 5, makes it hard to find TV shows that everyone can watch together. B, our 11 year old, loves tween shows on Disney like "Shake It Up" and "Austin & Ally" but L has no interest in shows like that. L, our soon to be 5 year old, would rather watch kiddie cartons like "Team Umizoomi" which M, our 8 year old, thinks are "baby shows". As you can see finding a show for everyone to watch together is a bit of the challenge!

Enter Disney's carton "Gravity Falls"! "Gravity Falls" tells the story of twins, Dipper and Mabel, who are spending their summer at great uncle's place called the "Mystery Shack". Dipper and Mabel think that they are going to have a boring summer but quickly mysterious things start happening to them. GF is the perfect mix of humor, mystery and action with lovable characters that make it perfect for the whole family! (Hubby's note- If you do decide to watch GF, and I STRONGLY recommend you do because it is a great show, use your DVR to record it as you watch. At the end of most, if not all, of the episodes there is a code you can try to decipher. Don't worry if you have a rough time, just Google it and you will see there are a few web sites dedicated to unraveling the codes.)

After a busy day filled with school, homework and sports it is so nice to have a little time on the sofa as a family. I am so happy we found a show we can all watch!


  1. Perfect! Thanks for the suggestion! We have 3, 8, and 10 at our house and I refuse to let the 3 year old watch "Adventure Time" because it's awful. It's the only thing the older ones want to watch. We all get sick of Team Umizoomi, Paw Patrol, and My Little Pony episodes!

  2. I completely agree. . . it is so hard to find anything "family friendly"!

  3. I think I love Gravity Falls even more than my 10- and 7-year olds do! Never knew about the codes, though... Thanks for sharing! :)
