Netflix is working hard to be an integral part of many of your family’s life events through the year. On top of being my usual choice for entertainment in the evening, and our Christmas background with their Yule log program and White Christmas on constant play back; now Netflix would like to be there for your child’s birthday with Birthday on Demand.
Already available since the middle of this month, 15 of your child’s and your favorite characters from various shows have videos signing them happy birthday. The thing that I really liked was it was not just Netflix shows that were represented. Some really popular characters from Pokémon to Barbie also have videos. If you theme your party to any one of these shows, what better way to blow out the candles with the same characters singing along with the rest of the kids and family and wishing your little one a happy birthday. It would have been great if you could personalize the videos for your child, maybe that functionality will be available further down the road.
To help celebrate these new releases, Netflix sent us a package to back our own Netflix themed birthday cake. Unfortunately, nobody at the Dancing Hotdogs family household was having a birthday, but we still decided to celebrate anyways. Who doesn’t want to have some birthday cake once and while. Here is the full cake with the box:
While having our cake and eating it too, we also took the time to watch some of the Birthday on Demand videos. The boys absolutely loved that Ninjago and Pokémon had videos. Needless to say, D will want Barbie to sing her Happy Birthday as well. My favorite was from the popular Netflix Show from Beatbugs which sang the song to the melody of the Beatles “Birthday” song which considering the theme of the show is definitely appropriate.
