Before you get too far, you should know that these aren’t shows for ‘Date Night In’ or ‘the kids fell asleep early, let’s watch a grown-up movie.’ No, these are far from that.
These are just a few wholesome shows brought to you directly from Netflix and their Netflix Original studios. Shows that you’ll feel comfortable leaving your little one in front of, while you tackle tasks around the house.
3 Netflix Originals Your Kids Don’t Want to Miss
Mighty Little Bheem
New this year, Mighty Little Bheem is a series about a little boy with superhuman strength. With sweet music and sound effects and no speaking roles, it’s a wonder that the show will keep your child’s attention, but it does! It actually keeps my little one completely enthralled.
The episodes are only 5-7 minutes each, but they tell great stories in such a short period. Plus, there are animals in each episode that interact with Bheem. And with an Indian heritage, it will open your child’s mind to other cultures along the way.
There are currently 21 episodes this season and I can only assume they’ll be continuing the series next year.
You can watch a trailer of Mighty Little Bheem here.
True and the Rainbow Kingdom
Despite the songs and catchphrases that will get stuck in your head for days, your child is sure to love True and her sidekick cat, Bartleby. These two lifesavers spend their days fixing problems in and around Rainbow Kingdom, with help from a magical tree that grants wishes.
With a manga-type feel, this style of cartoon will be something different and exciting for your child. Plus, it teaches resourcefulness and creativity to boot.
There are 14 episodes, each 24-minutes long. So, True can definitely fill some time. Not to mention the three spin-offs to her show:
- True, Magical Friends
- True, Wonderful Wishes
- Dance & Sing with True, Songs

Imagine a Monster Mash with only children. That’s Super Monsters. A werewolf, a zombie, a witch and more, but all in preschool. These kiddos learn to use their powers along the way and usually have some sort of problem to solve in a 20-minute span.
Not to mention the catchy intro and exit they have when the sun goes down and comes up, causing them to change back into children. But, don’t worry, the show is not scary in the least, but rather humanizes the monsters and shows children that everyone is different, and that’s okay.
With 16 episodes, ranging from 23-25 minutes, these Super Monsters will be sticking around for awhile.
