Netflix Instant Streaming Tonic for Kids

It’s no secret that Netflix changed our lives by giving us something to always to watch on TV.

When you have impatient kids who are melting down through exhaustion and need an instant distraction, sometimes I find a new movie or new programme is just the tonic to switch their energy.
In an instant Netflix means I can switch on their favourite TV show or movie and hey presto, peace is restored to our house.

The only problem I have with Netflix is the limited way in which programmes and movies are displayed. They’re bunched altogether, which is a pain, and a lot of the ‘what’s new’ is actually old content. I’d prefer a top 10 of ‘what’s new’ and ‘highly recommended’ kids shows and a separate list of movies by age and category (eg animations, real actors, Pixar, Dreamworks etc) and target audience, eg girls and boys.

Basically it’s really hard to see exactly what the best movies on offer are, so I figured I would put together a list of my family’s favouries as a starting point for newcomers to Netflix.
Jago's favourite: Ninjago
Favourite movies for all of them (aged 3, 5 & 6):

  • Cars 2
  • Toy Story 3
  • The Muppets
  • Tangled
  • A Bugs Life
Movies and TV shows:

6 year old boy’s favourite: 
  • Lego Ninjago

  • Mermaids (non-animation Australian show)

  • Thomas tank engine episodes and movies

What are your Kids’ faves?
