Before we get to the exciting announcement, I wanted to share some streaming ideas for your children this fall. My children have two favourite “down time” activities: playing outside and streaming from Netflix. With their busy back to school schedule, it is VERY important to ensure that they are getting enough down time!
In fact, last week, I shared our After School Routine Chart, but what I neglected to share was the fact that there are many days where my children opt to watch a tv show instead of going outside to play because they just need to relax before they go outside.
Ever After: A Cinderella Story
The Pursuit of Happyness
The Karate Kid

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
LeapFrog: Numbers Ahoy
And now for some Netflix announcements for kids!
Netflix and Saban Brands have announced a brand new, POP-tastic original kids series! Popples, which made its original debut in the U.S. in 1985, will be a new animated series that re-imagines the nostalgic adorable species of brightly coloured creatures that transform from fluffy balls to furry friends, and back again. I was a HUGE fan of Popples when I was a kid, so I am super excited to introduce this show to my children!
Netflix will transport viewers into the colourful world of Popplopolis with 26 half-hour episodes, beginning in late 2015.
Netflix and Rainbow Studios have announced a spin-off of Winx Club as a new original TV series for kids. In Winx Club WOW, the girls embark on an undercover journey all around the world looking for talented kids in art, sports, music and science. My kids are both fans of Winx dolls so they will be very excited to hear this news!
