We all like to think of ourselves as the world’s most active, attentive and award-worthy parents, but let’s face it: we sometimes rely on some good old-fashioned screentime to keep the children entertained while we, you know, Actually Get Stuff Done.

But if you’ve watched so much Hey Duggee and Bluey that you’ve started to get a complex that a cartoon dog is doing a better job of looking after the kids than you, maybe it’s time to look for some new kids’ TV shows over on Netflix.

The streaming giant is famous for classics like Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol, but what are the other best kid-friendly TV shows on the Children section? Let’s take a look:

For Pre-School Kids


Cocomelon is utterly terrifying, but thankfully not for the kids. This animated musical show started as a YouTube channel but now has a regular Top 10 slot on Netflix Children, with songs ranging from well-known favourites like “Old Macdonald” and “The Wheels on the Bus” to the uniquely catchy/horrifying Cocomelon classics like “Yes Yes Vegetables” and “Are We There Yet?” The colourful singing, dancing animations are so intense they’d make more than suitable sleep paralysis demons for us parents, but for pre-school kids they’re relentlessly entertaining.
