10 Reasons My Kids Love Netflix #StreamTeam

Disclaimer: As part of the StreamTeam from Netflix, I am participating in this post. Incentives are given for being a part of the team; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone.


1. Great Shows for Their Age

My son is 8 and my daughter is 10. They can always find programs that are age appropriate and interesting for them. Right now they both love the new Dragons: Race to the EdgeIt’s fun and interesting to watch! I may have watched with them!

2. Easy to Access from Portable Devices

My kids can watch Netflix on their iPads and iPhones. This is great for trips, sports events, etc. 

3. Easy to Navigate Themselves

The kids can easily search for their favorite shows or get suggestions from other shows they have viewed. Easy for them to play, pause, and come back to when needed.

4. There is a “Kids’ Netflix” to Click on for Them

Both kids know to click on the “Kids’ Netflix” screen so they only have an appropriate selection of shows and movies to choose from.

5. Great Original Series’ Options for Kids

My kids love Dragons: Race to the Edge which has multiple episodes in the series, as well as Ever After High.

6. Affordable Subscription Prices

Subscriptions start as little as $7.99 a month. You have options for streaming on one or multiple devices at the same time, as well as options for receiving Blu-Ray disks and DVDs at home.

7. Educational Programing

There are great educational shows for kids to learn from. We love Planet Earth: The Complete Collection

8. Promotes Compromise and Sharing

At ages 8 and 10 the kids have a hard time compromising on what to watch. Even though we have the multiple device option, I do like them to share the iPad. They have had to learn how to compromise on what to watch and share the iPad. I love seeing them learn to do this! If they fight, then they know that their Netflix will be taken away.

9. Wii Streaming

We have the Wii connected to our TV, and it’s super easy to stream Netflix through our Wii. They kids can easily use the Wii to play games on and then switch to watch great programming through the Netflix App on the Wii for streaming.

10. Because it’s simply AWESOME (say the kids)!




  1. We love Netflix here. My favorite part is that there is a a Kids section so the kids can’t get to movies that are beyond their age group. My son likes it because he gets to watch movies! ;)

  2. Kristin says:

    My kids love Netflix, too. They like to watch it on their phones and the iPad. (I’m a big fan, too!)

  3. I am not a kid but I love my Netflix, hahahah! We use it all the time. I know when our little guy arrives he will love Netflix just like us!

  4. OMg, my kids love Netflix too. It is the best thing ever. We don’t have cable at home because the kids used Netflix so much. There was no point to keep paying for cable.

  5. We are loving Dragons – Race to the Edge. Netflix has replaced our regular TV shows for family entertainment. Now our TV is always on Netflix because there is always something to watch… or watch again!

  6. Amy Desrosiers says:

    I am not even sure what we we’d do without Netflix! Our kids are hooked on all the great shows and movies!

  7. We’ve never tried Netflix but love watching movies at home. It’s so much cheaper than going to theaters.

  8. My kids watch Netflix every single day! I love the educational programming.

  9. My son is 3 y/o and he knows exactly where to go within Netflix to find his favorite shows. Lately, I think we’ve watched 2 full seasons of “Little Einsteins” a good 3 times. He knows the “Kids” section is just for him.

  10. My kids also love Netflix because of the great shows and the ease of finding those shows. I like that I can have it on our mobile devices while we are out and about for quick entertainment in a pinch.

  11. I had no idea that they had a new series for How To Train Your Dragon!! We love Netflix in my house they love to stream as do me and my husband!

  12. Netflix is awesome. My 11-year-old discovered the joys of binge-watching with Doctor Who on Netflix. haha!

  13. My daughter loves Netflix. It has all her favorite shows from Tinkerbell to Sesame Street to How to Train Your Dragon. Love that we can watch it on the phone, iPad, computer, or TV.

  14. Kids have so many entertainment options these days! I remember back when you had to be at the tv when your show was on in order to watch it – now you can watch anything at any time!

  15. I feel so out of the loop… we’ve never watched Netflix. Gonna have to give it a try.

  16. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    Netflix is fantastic. My kids love all the great shows they have. I love watching the movies.

  17. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    Our whole house loves Netflix. They offer such a wide variety of shows and movies.

  18. We love Netlix, too! Getting a Netflix subscription was one of the best decisions we’ve made!

  19. We rely only on streaming now for our TV, so we are big Netflix users! The kids have a list of favorites and I love it because there’s so much to choose from!

  20. My kids don’t believe it in a regular television – they are alla bout Netflix. So much awesome stuff there!
