I have always found it interesting what my boys find to watch on Netflix. When I give them free reign of the controller in Netflix they make such interesting decisions. I love how I don’t have to fear that they will pick someone inappropriate since Netflix Kids does a great job of make sure only select shows and movies are available to them. The thing that makes me laugh is the mix of content that they find, they have watched old shows of Pee Wee Herman, He-Man and classic Voltron, all shows that I used to watch when I was their age.
On top of that there is a slew of brand new Netflix Original content. One that I found the boys watching that really surprised me was Kong King of the Apes. The show follows Kong as he grows along with a boy and his scientist father. Along the way they are joined by other characters and form a sort of family together. Another show that they also enjoy was Beat Bugs, while this show skews a little on the younger side, they incorporate the music of the Beatles (which the boys absolutely love) as well as special guests who also sing along. This is not to mention all the new movies being added as well, Finding Dory, Kubo and the Secret Life of Pets are all available, and essentially make owning the Blu-ray or DVD a moot point.
What does your child watch? You might be surprised at the shows and movies that they pick when they have the choice.
