Moshi Bedtime Stories on YouTube Kids
Getting your child to sleep can be one of the trickiest challenges parents can face. I find the pre-bedtime frenzy so hard as I’m utterly exhausted at the end of the day. Is anyone with me? Overtired children tend to be hyperactive at bedtime due to increased cortisol, making it much harder for them to fall asleep. Cortisol is our body’s stress hormone, which elevates when we don’t get enough rest, causing us to stay awake. Bedtime routines and starting to get kids to unwind are so important because we can prevent hyperactivity. If this sounds easier said than done, fear less! We have this covered for you. Let Moshi do the work and be your new superpower.

Moshi Bedtime Stories to Help Kids Sleep
Close Your Eyes SleepyPaws
Let’s drift away and see what we can find with our very tired koala, SleepyPaws. He lives high up in a treehouse and is feeling so restless. He journeys across a fluffy meadow to a special place where Moshlings sleep and dream. Mountains covered in stardust, lush lagoons, rainbow sherbert fountains, and a silvery moon—this is the perfect guided visualization for young children with a great imagination. With heavy eyes, squishy pillows, and a pinky haze, SleepyPaws eventually drifts off into a relaxing sleep with a little piece of stardust in his hand. With over 20 million YouTube plays, it looks like this is one of your favorites, too!
Stanley and Ophelia
This is a nostalgically romantic tale of Stanley the Songful Seahorse’s search for a sub-aquatic soulmate. Ophelia quite literally knocks Stanley off his leaf in this beautifully relaxing bedtime story. Together they travel along the ocean floor toward the Turquoise Reef, noticing the technicolored jellyfish swaying and the beautiful colors of the sea. Filled with famous starfish and a Moshi rockstar whale, this reef is the perfect place to dance the night away until tiredness takes over. They fall in love and glide off to spend their lives together. It is a perfectly dreamy end for all children to enjoy.
Ziggy’s Hunky Dory Sleepy Story
If you are looking for a calming bedtime story for toddlers, then you have come to the right place! Ziggy is a cool koala who dresses to impress and loves to dance to glam rock music. He plays guitar, wears glitter, and loves to busk for his fellow Moshlings. It’s only when a Metal Guru whisks him off to a sparkly city to become a star that he lives out his wildest dreams. He plays to the locals who applaud his power chords and flamboyant ways. This hunky-dory sleepy story will help your toddler fall into an easy sleep.
Tick-Tock Ten-Minute Bedtime
Our YouTube channel is full of a variety of bedtime stories. We have something for everyone. If you are looking for a more concise meditation, try this short bedtime story for your child. The soothing tickety-tock sound will help your child drift off to sleep in no time. When the stars begin to twinkle, Holmes the Clockity Wockity from Cuckoo Close and Mini Ben the Teeny TickTock from a foggy Moshi riverbank love to lie back and think about their day as they tick-tock away. They even carry on their sound when they fall asleep. Sweet dreams, little ones.
Extra Bedtime Tips
If you are looking for even more ways to improve your child’s bedtime, you can try these top five tips:
- Give them a warm bath, which will mentally and physically prepare them for sleep.
- Reduce screen time at least an hour before bedtime to help them relax.
- Set a relaxing mood with some low lighting and calming music.
- Let them make a choice—for example, which book to read or which pajamas to wear.
- Cuddle up and tell your own bedtime stories. Kids love this!
How can I engage my kids when choosing a bedtime story?
It is great to allow your child to make some choices and letting them choose their own bedtime story can be so much fun. Perhaps they have an old favorite, anticipate the new releases, or love the Moshi series. Younger kids may want to choose a story based on the image they see and older kids will be able to read the description of the story. Kids are naturally curious, so take some time during the day to let kids explore Moshi Stories so that at bedtime, they are prepared to make a choice.
