You just fire it up and start watching whatever you want.
But what to watch? Thankfully, there’s a lot of choice, and the best Netflix kids’ shows can rival the quality of prestige television for adults. We sifted through reams of kids’ titles on the world’s longest-running streaming platform to bring you, in age-appropriate order, the best kid’s shows on Netflix, starting at around 3-years-old and ending in the tweens.
1. Ask the StoryBots
While a ton of children’s programming is connected to social-emotional themes, the brilliance of Ask the StoryBots is that it’s all about curiosity about the actual world. Children ask questions like “what is gravity?” or “what is DNA?” and the StoryBots answer those questions. The creators of the series set out to make a show that they themselves would want to watch with their kids. And, the efforts hows. StoryBots is fun, funny and smart.
