Adventures in Preschool Streaming with Netflix Canada #StreamTeam

As part of the Netflix Canada #StreamTeam, you may have noticed I post at least once a month about awesome Netflix shows, and usually said posts have a theme. The theme for August is Adventures. The PR folks recommended a slew of great titles for little kids and for the first time ever, ALL the shows recommended were ones that have never streamed on our TV screen.

So, it's been an adventure trying to watch something new with my preschooler who lives for routine (and rotating through the same episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba!, Bubble Guppies, Thomas and Friends, Sesame Street, Super Why! and Pingu).

Right now, Hannah is obsessed with turtles. Well, at least her turtle shirt. Whenever we wash it she HAS to wear it the next day, so I thought for sure she would want to watch A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures.

So when Hannah has asked to watch TV these past few weeks, a lot of our conversations have been like this:

Me - "Hannah, do you want to watch a movie about a turtle?"

Hannah - "Bubble Guppies Flashlight." (referring to Bubble Guppies "The Legend of Pinkfoot")

Another attempt:

Me - "Let's watch a movie about a turtle!"

Hannah - "Toodee Rocks! Where's my tambourine?" (referring to Yo Gabba Gabba! "Band")

Trying to be slightly more influential:

Me - "I would REALLY like to watch a movie about a turtle."

Hannah - "NO! I want Big Bird and Snuffleupagus." (referring to Sesame Street "Up in the Air")

So, August became and continues to be an adventure in trying to get Hannah to watch something new.

If you think you'll have better luck with your kids, here are some awesome adventure shows for little kids currently streaming on Netflix Canada:
  1. Dora The Explorer
  2. Wild Animal Baby Explorers
  3. Tree Fu Tom
  4. Rubbadubbers: Tubb's Pirate Treasure
  5. A Turtle's Tale: Sammy's Adventures
  6. The Hive
    As for Sammy, he's been added to MY List on Netflix. I really do want to watch A Turtle's Tale. I just want to watch Hemlock Grove slightly more.
