Mother and Son Bonding while Watching Shows on HOOQ

Friday, October 23, 2015

     Before I became a blogger, I have all the time in the world to spend it with my one and only son. We bond together in simple ways like watching television shows, playing with car toys, and malling. Fast forward today, I'm guilty that I only spend a few hours bonding with him. I miss the good 'ol times when we were watching our favorite movies and series on youtube.

     Recently, there are movies and series that's a pain to watch online. It's either the video has been taken down by the owner or the copy uploaded lacks quality. Good thing I've discovered a video-on-demand service that brought back my so-called "mother and son" bonding. I can say that spending quality time with my son is a pure bliss while watching movies or television series on HOOQ. I listed down 3 reasons why I highly recommend HOOQ for that much needed bonding time with your kids at home plus the highlights of HOOQ's re-launch :)

1. Join your kids watch their favorite movies and cartoons on HOOQ- anytime, anywhere! Get your tablet and relax beside your kids while watching cartoons. You can watch television shows even if your just in the sala set. No television, cable, and DVD required. 

2. It's an affordable bonding time with the kids at home. Your family can watch different shows. No more traffic going to malls just to watch a movie. No need to pay for movie tickets. Watch movies hassle-free at the comfort of your home.

3. Looking for classic children's movies that you cannot find anywhere? Find them at HOOQ. Teach them values while watching those movies. Watch Peter Pan and inculcate friendship and happy thoughts in your kids. Stuart Little is not a classic movie but we like watching it over and over again on HOOQ because it teaches the value of family, loyalty and friendship.

     Our favorite television series as of the moment is Theodore Tugboat. This show is somewhat like to Thomas and Friends. Theodore's adventures explore feelings, fairness and friendship in each episodes. This classic television series is also shown in youtube BUT they don't have the complete list of episodes unlike what HOOQ is offering.

     Basically, these are the simple things that I've experienced with HOOQ but these things are priceless-the bonding moment I have with my son every time we watch our favorite shows is a bliss. We get to have those 'fun time' singing the songs in the series and playing a mini trivia game too.
