Our Kids Favorite Shows – Anytime, Any Place With Netflix

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of NETFLIX, however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

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.

  1. My daughter and I just got done watching an episode of My Little Pony before bedtime tonight! We love how quick and convenient Netflix is for our family and how many shows they have available to watch. My husband and I are currently getting up-to-date on back episodes of Kitchen Nightmares.

  2. We’ve had Netflix for a little over a month now, my son absolutely loves it because it has so many kid’s shows available, and I like it because I can watch entire seasons of TV shows. It’s totally worth the $8 a month.

  3. We don’t have Netflix, but we do have a DVR full of family friendly shows. Nothing beats watch Daddy/Daughter cuddle time 🙂

  4. How Cute!!!! We do not have Netflix but we do a lot of REDBOX or renting from the local library and yes nothing better then Quality family time! But my hubby has to battle between 4 kiddos lol

  5. All i watch is netflix! We dont have cable anymore–by choice 🙂 I have been watching their series “hemlock grove” and its amazing 🙂 Not for kids though…

  6. We did have a netflix subscription last year but the selection wasn’t very good for movies! I have heard recently that the movies are more current. So we do plan on getting another subscription if they have a great deal.

  7. My family has a Netflix subscription, we love it. Great variety of kids shows. My girls really enjoy Caliou and Pinky Dinky Doo.

  8. I agree with you that the portability of netflix is what makes it really special. I can watch it from my phone or just about anywhere! Their selection is pretty impressive too.

  9. What a lovely family. I don’t have Netflix but my sister does and she watches all kinds of programs and movies on her computer. She doesn’t have/can’t afford cable so Netflix is a great alternative.
