Goodbye NOGGIN: Now It's Nick Jr.

NOGGIN is no longer called NOGGIN. It's now called Nick Jr.

Have you or your toddler noticed this TV station name change?


I half noticed the NOGGIN name change the other day. I have a first grader who's always begging to watch Nick, Disney, and Cartoon Network nowadays, but I also have an almost-three-year old to think about.

All I know is the Nickelodeon-owned NOGGIN station has always given me a warm and fuzzy feeling. It always felt safe for toddler viewing. Plus, no ads!!! So the other day when I walked in on my toddler watching Nick Jr., it did catch me off guard for a minute.

But then I got pulled away to do some other millionth thing.

If you're a NOGGIN fan, not too worry too much... The Nick Jr. website addresses the change as just a name change. "All of the things you loved about NOGGIN  — the shows, the characters, the educational content and, of course, Moose and Zee — will all be on the new Nick Jr." And, "The new Nick Jr. channel will remain commercial-free for preschoolers and will continue to be filled with highly engaging shows rich with educational content — 24 hours a day, seven days a week."

But NOGGIN was such a nice name...

What do you think about the NOGGIN name change? Love it or hate it or don't care?
