One of the many things I love about having little girls is introducing them to my favorite things when I was little. Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, etc. – they are all back and just as lovable as ever. Sharing them with my girls is special. They love to hear about how I watched those shows when I was a kid, and I love watching the new versions of the shows with them.
When I first decided to introduce K to Strawberry Shortcake, I bought her a DVD. After watching three episodes over and over and begging for new ones, I knew buying all of the Strawberry Shortcake DVDs would get expensive fast. Then my husband (always the wise techy) pointed out that the Netflix subscription (that I never used) had several seasons of Strawberry Shortcake available, oh and My Little Pony too.
K was in awe, and so was I.
She was three, and her new request became — “I want Net-fix!”
In our house, TV time is family time. Every night at 7:30 pm, we watch TV together before bed. So typical look at our “recently watched” on Netflix is comical – Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, Angelina Ballerina, etc. Every once in a while, you might see a movie thrown in for mom and dad. But for the most part, we have Netflix for our kids.
Besides having some of her favorite shows and movies available instantly, another reason to love Netflix for kids is the portability. Not just on the TV in the living room, we can pull up Netflix in the bedroom on Saturday morning or on our iPad or iPhone anywhere. That means we always have Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for baby girl, even on vacation.
I didn’t realize how important portable Netflix was until one day, after a long day (read missed naps) baby girl was especially cranky. We had an hour car ride to get home, and 15 minutes in it was clear she was going to cry the entire time. (She has never liked riding in a car.) Just as we were about to lose our mind, my husband had an idea. I crawled into the back with the iPhone, pulled up Netflix and soothed my babe to a hush. She was happy, and quite the rest of the way home. Netflix saved our sanity.
