Television: Check Out a New Clip From Turbo FAST

Thursday, April 3rd, 2014

One of my favorite children’s movies last summer was Turboa fast-paced adventure about a snail who dreams of racing in the Indy 500. The film is full of humor and heart that kids and adults can enjoy—and who can resist Samuel L. Jackson as the voice of a snail?

So naturally, I was excited when DreamWorks released five episodes of the animated series Turbo FAST (that stands for “Fast Action Stunt Team”) on Netflix during the holiday season. Picking up right where the movie ended, the show is full of crazy stunts, thrilling races and all sorts of new challenges for the wacky group of friends. Now, the next batch of episodes will be released on Netflix tomorrow, April 4. Take a sneak peek at what’s in store with this exclusive clip from an upcoming episode:

Plus, families can prepare for the release with the viewing party kit, which offers instructions for creating a racing obstacle course, coloring pages, trading cards and more. (Personally, I’m looking forward to trying the instructions for creating your own taco stand!)

Is your family planning on watching Turbo FAST?

Happy Birthday, Clifford!

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

It’s safe to say everyone loves Clifford the big red dog. One family in my childhood neighborhood even named their big, red minivan after the companionable canine! 

It may be hard to believe, but Clifford is already over half a century old—our furry friend turns 51 on what’s already a special, red-filled day—February 14!

To mark the occasion, Clifford episodes will debut on Netflix tomorrow. Get in on the birthday celebration and set aside some time during the long Presidents’ Day Weekend to watch favorites with your kiddos. Check out this exclusive clip from the show here.

Holiday Movies Your Kids (Maybe!) Still Haven’t Seen

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Can you believe that the last weekend before Christmas is here already? Whether you’re spending it traveling, shopping, or just snuggling up at home, chances are the kids will want to watch a movie at some point. Luckily, Netflix recently released a list of holiday titles available for streaming, and we’ve narrowed it down to some suggestions of specials you probably still haven’t seen (that way you don’t have to watch the same classic you’ve already watched dozens of times!)

So pick a movie, gather up the family and get cozy. Enjoy!

 What are your favorite holiday specials? Let us know in the comments!

Kick Back with the Kids

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Picture this:  A relaxing start to the holidays with you and the kiddies curled up on the couch with cups of hot cocoa watching…. Hmm…. Not that again!

Keep the kids entertained and beat winter break boredom with a new selection from Netflix called “Just for Kids.” The channel offers family-friendly viewing of kid’s content geared for ages 12 and under.  The section is organized by category—superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs, and more—or you can search by clicking on your favorite character, like Elmo or Dora, to find a selection of TV shows and movies featuring that character.

“Just for Kids” is currently available on PC, Mac, and Wii and will be coming soon to other platforms. With unlimited streaming memberships starting at $8 a month, a Netflix subscription may just be the perfect stocking stuffer for your kid.
