Between delayed flights, lost luggage, public tantrums and that one thing you forgot to pack, traveling with your family can get complicated, fast. In fact, 23% of parents in the US say one of their main concerns when traveling is keeping their kids entertained. With the holidays just around the corner, parents can look to offline viewing on Netflix to keep everything, and everyone, under control while on the go. From the tried-and-true shows you can rely on like Beat Bugs and Luna Petunia to calm any meltdown, to discovering new show obsessions like PJ Masks, Netflix downloads are a must-have travel essential for parents and their kids. So when it’s time to go on a trip together, one thing is for sure: when Netflix at home becomes Netflix on the go, everyone stays content, engaged and, most importantly, NOT bored.
How does Netflix keep your family sane and entertained while on the go? When we are taking a long road trip it is essential we bring along Kate’s iPad! Otherwise we’d be getting a lot of “are we there yet?” comments and when you are sitting in holiday traffic that isn’t meshing with us. Hey! Sanity is key around the holidays! What are some of your children’s favorite Netflix shows?
No matter if it’s for your littlest one, pre-teen or anyone in between, there are Netflix shows for everyone in the family to pack in their carry-on. And it’s not just Netflix originals, check out the ‘Available for Download’ menu on the Netflix app on your mobile or tablet device and browse all of the titles available to take with you whenever and wherever you want.
FOR THE KIDS:
Vacation Travel Time
Sound familiar? The official Netflix Family downloads jingle is taking a page from the infamous melody of the Orange is the New Black theme song. While vacationing may be easy, getting there is hard, and being trapped in the car on a family road trip can feel like being in Litchfield. This cute and relatable parody will have you humming along for the whole ride.
