Nobody Asked Me.... Minecraft and my daughter's favorite YouTubers



So Christmas is coming, really quick.  What are your children into?  My daughter is all about Minecraft.  She doesn't care about princesses and dolls, she wants pickaxes and swords.  It is definitely a Minecraft Christmas this year.  I've been shopping for plushies and miniature figures, and I'm even going to get her some clothes from some of her favorite Minecraft Youtubers.


Yep, because if you have a young Minecrafter in the family, odds are they watch YouTube.  So who do they like?  My daughter is all about Stampy (stampylonghead), Squid (iBallisticSquid), Pat (PopularMMOS), Jen (GamingWithJen), Dan at The Diamond Minecart (DanTDM) and Tiffy (ihasCupQuake).  I'll post some videos from these awesome people, and their links to follow. You should check them out.  They are fun and child-friendly!

So Minecraft and Youtube... I swear, it's addicting for the kids... and not just the kids.  I've found myself getting into them, too.  It's not just Minecraft videos.  These gamers post videos of other games (we love Spore, Sims, and Terraria), but you also get peaks into their lives, which is super cool that they do this.  I think, at least with these gamers, they realize that a lot of the viewers are small children, and they keep everything at a tame level.  As a mom, I really appreciate that.  My daughter is six, and she doesn't watch cartoons any more, just YouTube.  I love Stampy's infectious laugh, Squid saying "squidoodly", and Pat and Jen fighting it out with all the mobs.  Cupquake beating the heck out of her husband, Mario, in any game is always fun, too!

I doubt any of them will see this.  But I wish them all a very Merry Christmas.  Thank you for bringing my daughter countless hours of fun and joy, and I wish the very best for you.

  1. My kids are soooo hooked on Minecraft and they're always watching videos on Youtube. They'll see something on there and then try to reproduce it, and while I wish they didn't play quite so much video games, I'm definitely a fan of the ones that encourage them to use their imagination.

  2. I used to hate it when my daughter would play. But then I started noticing things like her speech improving. And she would ask odd questions, but still, questions. And she likes to know where in the world all these guys live. So I'm a reformed mom lol. Now we even play together over wifi, and I yell at her when she blocks me in somewhere. Cause you aren't supposed to do that to your mom lol

  3. LOL I keep saying that I'm going to learn how to play with them and then I watch all the crazy stuff they can do and I just end up standing there asking them a ton of questions. Makes me wonder which one of us is the adult LOL

  4. Well, I certainly ask her a ton of questions. And I Google a lot lol. But now the problem is that she wants to play constantly, and I'm thinking "Who is going to make dinner??" LOL. But you know, I think it's better than Spongebob, which is what she loved before she discovered Minecraft.

  6. My son has played, but never really got into it. I know he's watch some Youtube vlogs for it before. And I know he watches some gaming channels. But he really likes CTFxC, and I'm glad for that. He's a cool guy, funny, hot, in a band, but he doesn't drink or smoke and lives healthy. I like that one guy who always has his grandma in videos. I gotta check the name .......it's thiskidneedsmedicine. Funny stuff.

  7. I have to look both of those up lol. Another one a friend told me to look up.... what is it... oh, NerdyNummies. But maybe he has a crush on the cook LOL. But she does awesome things like superhero soup and dresses up like Wonder Woman (My favorite superhero, btw)
