With fall upon us and the weather getting ever-more unpredictable, Netflix remains one of the greatest tools in an exhausted parent’s kit. But wading through the streamer’s endless sea of kiddie content can be downright exhausting. The streamer is stocked full of family favourites, sure, but take it from somebody who has watched every episode of Bread Barbershop (twice): For every quality piece of original programming or classic series, there are dozens of mind-numbing throwaways ready to invade your child’s brain.
We've braved the algorithm and come up with 25 great options for any kid’s rainy-day binge. You'll find educational shows like Michelle Obama’s Waffle + Mochi and Storybots, plus reduxes of classics, magically weird original shows and quite a few scary stories to get little ones in the mood for Halloween. With these titles in your queue, your kids are in good hands.
