We rely heavily on Netflix during the summer months, with all of the travel and staying at locations without Disney Jr. (how dare they!). We've (I've) ODed on Caillou, Octonauts, and Curious George, so we've (I've) been looking for some other shows for the boys. So when we received some swag from Netflix for their new show, Dragons: Race to the Edge, the boys were super excited. And so was I. (Have I mentioned how much I hate Caillou?).
The show features Hiccup and Toothless from the How to Train Your Dragon movies. My kids haven't seen the movies, but they didn't seem to mind. Dragons? Yes, please.
They've been racing around the house with their knight gear, swords, and navigating the map of the dragon world (also courtesy of Netflix).
They love the swag, and they also love the show! It is a bit darker and scarier than say, Caillou, but my older kids (4 and 6) are ready for something a bit older. So far they've watched 6 of the 13 episodes, and I'm hoping to get the last 7 in before school starts. Because me thinks I'm going to have to institute some screen time rules once vacation is over...
