Kids watch the darndest things. But while a lot of children’s programming seems designed to give parents a migraine, there are plenty of kid- and tween-centric movies out there that the whole family can enjoy. Some of them are even streaming on Netflix As with every other genre on the platform, though, not everything applies. For every sweet, charming tale that doesn’t talk down to young ones, there’s some cheaply made junk that only aspires to fire fart jokes at you. You won’t find any of these on this list. Instead, you’re getting the cream of the kiddie crop – creative adventures set in the Sherlock Holmes universe, emotional journeys through the ’90s, vividly animated tales with diverse casts and much more. After you’ve checked off all the classics with your wee ones, turn to these new hits for your next family movie night.
