So Neflix is here to save the day with a perfect line up of kids programing that help countdown at 9pm and save your sanity. The kids will never know better!
According to the Netflix press release, “kids can pick their favorite character or ring in the new year again and again with countdowns featuring Oona and Baba of Puffin Rock, Care Bears & Cousins, Inspector Gadget, the Project Mc2 girls, and all of their DreamWorks Animation friends including King Julien and Mr. Peabody & Sherman.”
The company says research shows more than half of parents around the world (58%) would jump at the chance to put their kids to bed before the clock strikes twelve on New Year’s Eve.
With the shows preprogramed and ready to go, you can make your countdown happen at anytime.
- Puffin Rock residents Oona and Baba re-live their adventures from the past year and celebrate with the Northern Lights, nature’s very own fireworks.
- Care Bears & Cousins head to Share Bear’s Shake Shack to gear up for a belly badge-tastic countdown in Care-a-Lot.
- Inspector Gadget saves New Year’s Eve from a mischievous M.A.D. agent just in the nick of time for a dazzling firework display.
- King Julien lives up to his party animal persona with a countdown to dance your way into the new year.
- Mr. Peabody and Sherman venture around the world to gather their favorite talk show guests for a star-studded countdown event featuring Hiccup and Toothless, Puss in Boots, the Croods and the entire Dinotrux team.
- Project Mc2 stars McKeyla, Adrienne, Bryden and Camryn team up for NOV8’s most important mission yet: Party!
While 97% of parents across the globe are spending New Year’s Eve as a family, how the celebration unfolds varies by region.
Parents in the US, UK, Canada and Australia agree 9 p.m. is the new midnight. Nearly half of parents in these countries say they’d countdown those famous 10 seconds by 9 p.m. (49%).
American parents aren’t afraid to play trickster. 41% of US parents have or plan to use a special New Year’s Eve countdown as a way to get their kids to bed early.
I highly doubt we’ll make it to midnight ourselves. 9 p.m. sounds like a pretty good time to hit the sack to me. I surely can’t be the only one? 😉
