It is clearly acknowledged that learning occurs through different ways...One of these enjoyable ways is through songs. I have collected some songs for kids, covering topics such as; the Arabic alphabet, tawheed, Islamic cleanliness, adaab and so forth. All are welcome in making this thread resourceful so that we can share and benefit from each other. Insha Allah.
A is for Allah with lyrics – Allah is only one God
Are not drawings of living things considered Haram in Islam? As well as music?
The majority of the nasheeds are with the use of Duffs only, the others are just singing, group singing, with background vocalized melodies ...and as for the cartoons they are educational purposes not to be confused with real images of people. It's obvious a cartoon is not the image of a person.Or else find me a person that specifically imitates a cartoon character, in all external attributes.
My derivative view is that it is allowed in this case to teach various topics, supplemented with teachings of Quran,or as the videos I selected (teaching the topics in the Quran, love for prophet Muhammad (sawws), love for the massjid, Ramadan, Allah's 99names and so forth with the use of Nasheeds and cartoons. Never to be replaced with the recitation of the Quran. As for entertainment purposes, maybe start another thread for that discussion.

“Truly, God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” (Quran 13:11)
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
