That is quite the list! Unfortunately, shows available to stream on Netflix change often. These shows may be available today, but they may not be available in a few months when we’ve moved on from coral reefs to sharks.
It’s also difficult sometimes to find new shows that your family will enjoy. Watching the same ones over and over is not only boring, but it doesn’t give the kids anything new to think about. Time is a commodity that homemakers already seem to be short on, and spending precious minutes trying to search for a TV show just seems so wasteful. Here are a few tips to help you search better on Netflix:
Common Searching Methods
Choose a Genre. From a computer or Netflix device, hover over “just for kids” menu item and choose a genre (i.e. “from books” or “ocean adventures”)
Use the Search Bar. Enter in key term(s) for topic or title (i.e. “planet” for series by Planet Earth or Blue Planet or Animal Planet, “Egypt” for topical shows)
Alternate Ways to Search
Browse Characters. From a computer, hover over “just for kids” menu item and choose “kids home.” Browse through the characters to see all shows with the character. (Note: the same list can be seen when using a Netflix device.)
Rate Shows & View Recommendations. Netflix offers recommendations based on your viewing activity and your ratings. Take note of what shows are offered when you rate shows you’ve recently watched.
Scan Additional Titles. At the bottom of each show’s page, there is a list of additional titles. Browse through to see if any titles fit into the mission of your search.
Search By Category. Each show is filed into at least one category and these are listed on the right side of each show’s page. Choose a category to find similar titles.
Read Member Reviews. Members often leave titles of comparable shows in their comments. Take a minute to scan the reviews for title recommendations by members.
