As a parent, you likely know the struggle of finding something to watch with your children that is also enjoyable for you. Whether you’ve just had your first child with the help of Tuboplasty and are tired of watching hours of Cocomelon, or find that your toddler wants to watch the same Disney movie every single day, it’s likely that you’ve suffered through your fair share of bad children’s entertainment. Streaming services like Netflix are home to a large catalog of movies and TV shows geared towards children, and with such a wide variety of content to choose from, there are actually a few hidden gems streaming on the service that are equally enjoyable for adults and kids. Here are a few of the best kids’ movies that you can stream on Netflix right now.
This beloved children’s book character has finally gotten his own movie franchise, and it is a hit among kids of all ages and their parents. Paddington, the CGI stuffed bear, looks surprisingly realistic, and takes viewers on a funny yet heartwarming journey that people of all ages are sure to enjoy.
Boss Baby is well loved among toddlers, teenagers, and adults alike. The simple animation makes this show enjoyable for young children, but the show is packed with complex humor that only older viewers will catch. The film is such a hit that it inspired a sequel and a spin off TV show, both of which are also available to stream on Netflix if the movie leaves you wanting more.
Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
This hit film was released in 2009 and is still beloved by audiences today. Originally based on a children’s book of the same name, this silly movie tells the story of an inventor who unleashes storms made of food on his community. This show, like many other children’s movies, also inspired a spin off series that is available to stream – but it isn’t as entertaining as this classic, hilarious film.
The Sing franchise is well loved among young children around the world, making this film one of the highest grossing sequels at the box office at the time of release. While this film might not be as entertaining for parents, it is sure to be a favorite among kids – who can even attend a live show featuring the Sing performers which will be hitting the road this year.
