We are Netflix obsessed at the My Toy Planet house. We each have our own profiles and they are very different. I mainly watch sci-fi and family dramas while my husband is all about the adult cartoons (Family Guy etc). However, Aaliyah is much more all over the place with her preferences. If your kid is like mine and loves to watch it all make sure you check out these Netflix TV shows for kids. The best part? They all have toys which complement these Netflix Originals shows. You know how much we love toys here at My Toy Planet. Toys make watching the shows more interactive. It allows the kids to become creative and extend the storylines beyond what is on the screen.
Netflix TV Shows For Kids: Netflix Originals Toys
Do you remember Popples from the 80s/90s? Well, they are back. Netflix has revamped Popples into a computer animated cartoon. They are not quite the same Popples you might remember. They are a bit more adventurous, colorful and sassier but still a lot of fun. Aaliyah loves Popples. Geared for younger children, boys and girls both love this show.
The best part of the Popples toy you see on the left? It rolls into a ball just like the Popples do on TV! Yikes is Aaliyahs favorite as he likes to eat and is the silliest of all the Popples.
With the tagline ‘Smart is the New Cool’, Project MC2 has a big promise it needs to deliver. Spoiler alert: it does. Project MC2 is a Netflix Original show which is geared to the pre-teen audience. The characters McKeyla, Adrienne, Bryden, and Camryn are four very smart and science-skilled girls recruited to join the spy organization, NOV8. The show has a girl power theme which I love.
Every time, I go toy shopping I see the coolest Project MC2 toys: spy kits, lie detectors, lab kits and more. I wish Aaliyah was just a bit older so I could buy these up for her. If you have a preteen girl you are shopping for, make sure you check out the Project MC2 toys.
Based on the movie Home, Home: Adventures with Tip & Oh picks up where the 2015 film left off. The TV show follows a fearless Tip and overenthusiastic Oh through crazy human/alien adventures. We have not watched the TV show yet but we love the movie. Aaliyah loves the silliness of Oh and that the movie is so imaginative. James and I watched the movie and enjoyed it as well. It is one of those films that the whole family can enjoy.
To the left is Oh. He is the alien which saved the planet in the Home movie. I love the design of the toy and the attention to detail it has. Particularly the circle on the jacket. He looks just like in the movie and tv show.
Ever After High is a Netflix Original TV series which is geared towards a teenage audience. However, I really enjoy this show. The children of all the fairytale characters you already know and love attend Ever After High, where they are either Royals (students who want to follow in their parent’s footsteps) or Rebels (students who wish to write their own destiny). I love watching and figuring out who is who. If you enjoy the tv show Once Upon A Time you will recognize a similar concept with this show.
If you know (or are) an Ever After High fan then you must have at least one of their dolls. Aaliyah has the playset to the left. It is discontinued but you can still buy it online. The quality of the dolls is amazing. These are not Barbie quality but much better. The dolls are fully articulated and the fabric choices are amazing. I was blown away with the quality the first time I touched one.
