Family Movie Night is Back! #NetflixKids

I am a member of the Netflix Stream Team. I received a welcome kit which includes a year’s subscription to Netflix. Opinions expressed are my own.

Since joining Netflix, we have been doing Friday family movie night! I don't think we are different than any other family. We are all SO busy! It's nice to sit down on the couch after dinner on Friday, pick a movie that we can all enjoy together, and RELAX.

I always think there is NO WAY this family will agree on a movie, and yet, there is so much to choose from that so far, we always do!

Last week's movie was The Emperor's New Groove.
I can't believe this movie came out in 2000, and I've never seen it. The kids loved it, and so did the parents!

One little nugget I discovered is that you can have profiles on your Netflix account. Did you know this? It's super easy and I love it because the kids each have their own profile and they get show suggestions based on what they enjoy watching.
All you have to do is click on the top right corner of your account and choose "Manage Profiles".
From here, you can either add a profile, or edit existing profiles. My son is only in first grade, so he isn't allowed to have any accounts of his own yet. No Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. His own Netflix profile was something I could say yes to, and that made him REALLY happy!
Now, when he goes to Netflix, he can choose his own account and see all the shows he's watched and what shows Netflix has selected for him.

This morning, he woke up and said: "Mommy, do you know the only thing wrong with Team Hot Wheels®?"

I said: "No, what's wrong with it?"

To which he said: "There's only one!"

He absolutely loved it! My understanding is that there will be more Team Hot Wheels®, and I hope so. My son is certainly a fan!

So far, I have binged my way through The Walking Dead, House of Cards, and Bates Motel. What are you streaming?!


  1. I love emporers new groove!!! That is a movie that my sister brother and I always watched on car rides back and forth from Illinois to Indiana. I am really shocked you never saw that.


    1. I don't know how this one got past me! It was super funny! I love David Spade ;)

    2. Big fail. But I finally watched frozen and both despicable me movies so I guess we are even


  2. Great idea, I love to watch comedy but really like to watch sports. I think I can set up two different profiles and select which one I want.

  3. i love that you can set up different profiles. i don't have to scroll through Wild Kratts, Curious George, et al, to get to The Walking Dead!
    there is so much content for kids on Netflix is saved my life this week...spring break week!
    House of Cards, check. i miss Francis and Claire!
    when i'm done with The Walking Dead i just might start Mad Men...i have never seen one episode!

    1. I stumbled upon profiles after having to scroll through kid shows. It's fantastic! I may be diving into Mad Men next too!
