Celebrate Birthday’s On Demand With Netflix #StreamTeam

Posted on September 27, 2017 in Kids/ Netflix/ Sponsored

Disclosure: I am part of the Netflix Canada StreamTeam and as such received special perks and information that I share with my readers, however, my opinion is my own.

Birthdays. There sure are a lot of them in our family and lucky for us they are all one right after another! Oops. Didn’t exactly think that through! We’ve done a few Birthday parties in our journey through parenthood, but for the most part, we tend to do Birthday parties among just the family.

Big Birthday parties with kids friends from school and the neighborhood can be extremely costly and very stressful. Especially when you have seven kids, and seven parties. That can be a lot.

We have one more Birthday to get through, which is Kyla on October 2nd and for the last few weeks, she has been begging for a party! She has tons of friends, so I know it’s something she wants, but it’s giving me a bit of anxiety to think about. Two-thirds of other parents (67%) also say that Birthday Party planning is stressful, so at least I’m not alone!

Birthday’s on Demand With Netflix

Netflix recently released 15 Birthdays on-demand featurettes! Each has favorite characters from LEGO Ninjago, Luna Petunia, Beat Bugs and more! To help make your next Birthday celebration a big piece of cake! With this new feature, parents can press play to allow kids’ favorite characters to sing them a special birthday greeting!

You can find the Birthdays On-Demand at netflix.com/birthdays or by searching “Birthday” on Netflix.

    This is awesome! My daughter would love this, especially the Ninjagos ( she is slightly obsessed) . Even with only 2 kids I think parties can be overrated lol I think this year we are doing Legoland instead of an actual party

    This is such a great idea. My son would love this. Netflix is coming out with so many great ideas and features.

    Netflix is so great isn’t it?! I love all the ideas you mentioned. I think it’s important for kids birthday parties to be about the kids and always like to keep ours fun and simple.

    I love this! I had no idea about this Netflix hack – while my kids and I would not listen to this (they are too old for making birthday fuss), I am going to share this with my friend, who will love this, I am sure. Blessings!

    This is so cool! As a complete Netflix nerd and former Netflix employee, I’m completely geeking out of those balloons and all of the red party decor together. ;)

    I personally think that simple birthdays are the best! No big elaborate affairs that are really for the parents. Netflix makes this possible!

    This is amazing and perfect timing! I’m in the throws of planning a bigger party this year!

    What a great idea. Having these featurettes can make your kid’s bday even more special. It’s crazy out big kids parties have gotten. I remember how simple they used to be so I can only imagine the stress parents go through.

    I just recently discovered the joys of Netflix. What a cool way to make a birthday party unique and stress-free.

    I have to say this is an AMAZING idea! The stress of planning a kid’s party has become way too much for me, and we try to avoid it by going somewhere special. However, the kids have been asking about a party, and I won’t be able to avoid the parties for too much longer. THIS I could do.

    This is such a fun idea! I wish Netflix and this feature were around when I was a kid!

    My daughter would love a birthday message. How fun. I finally have my boys only doing a party every other year but my daughter is 5 and all about having a birthday party every year!

    I think this is such a great idea! My daughter’s birthday party is this month, so perfect timing!
