What makes your little ones feel super special on their birthday? A party, presents, their favourite meal maybe. How about being wished a happy birthday from their favourite TV characters on Netflix?

That’s right, a brand new feature on Budding Smiles HQ’s favourite entertainment platform will bring excitement to mini people everywhere on their birthdays, and I’m kinda regretting our poor planning which means I have to wait until May and July to use it. Although maybe Phil would enjoy a birthday message from the Beat Bugs in March…

So, here’s a list of the characters/shows:

  • DreamWorks All Hail King Julien
  • Barbie 
  • Beat Bugs 
  • DreamWorks Dinotrux 
  • Las Leyendas 
  • LEGO Friends 
  • LEGO Ninjago 
  • Luna Petunia
  • Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
  • Pokémon 
  • Project Mc2
  • Skylanders Academy 
  • DreamWorks Trollhunters 
  • Word Party

Is your little one’s favourite on there? Dinotrux would go down well in our house! If you want to see the messages in action, then check out the Netflix trailer below, it’s pretty cool!

If you don’t follow my Instagram posts and Stories (in which case I’ll just pause to give you time to rectify that 😉), you may have missed that I went to an awesome Netflix Stream Team event last week. It was amazing to meet the team, and we did some really fun activities that inspired us all about how we can use the shows we love as inspiration for activities with the kids,  for date nights at home, with mates; so keep your eyes peeled for the things we’re getting up to. In the meantime, I got my GoPro out to capture the event, and made this little video of the day to give you some ideas:

I can’t wait to bring you fun ideas and breaking Netflix news throughout the next few months! In the meantime, I’d love to hear what your favourite shows are, so let me know in the comments below, or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter.
