Puss in Boots in in the House! Your house that is. Your favourite feline is on Netflix starting January 16th. He’s sauve, he’s debonair, he’s a great swordsman, he’s got great big kitty eyes (wait… what?) and I can’t wait to see him! If you loved him in the Shrek movies, if you loved him in his own movies, you’ll be happy to know he’s got his own series. Yes, you read that right… we can now watch him on tv, right in the comfort of our own living rooms. And the kids are gonna love it! Ok, admit it, you’re gonna love it, too!
If you just can’t wait until tomorrow night to see him, how about Shrek Forever After. Since Puss in Boots got his big screen debut with Shrek and the gang, it would be fitting to prep yourself for his personal movie with all his friends present. Be prepared to laugh as this is another movie that the whole family can get into.
We all know that Puss in Boots really got on the path to silver screen fame as a character in a book, and this month Netflix has quite a few literary based shows for kids. My boys are very much into the whole How to Train Your Dragon series – both the books and the movies. This month How to Train Your Dragon is on Netflix and I highly recommend it. After seeing it at least a dozen times, probably more, I still think it’s a great movie.
For the littles I’m going to recommend the Very Hungry Caterpillar which has become a staple in most preschool households. Not only is it a great book franchise, it’s now on tv. How awesome is that? If you have a young child likely you’ve experienced this book, too.
And my last personal pick for the month is for the littles as well. It’s one of my all-time favourite children’s books, and one I still wish could come true. Harold and the Purple Crayon has been drawing his way into our imaginations for a few generations and I’m so excited to see it on Netflix. I always wished for a purple crayon just like his so I, too, could go on amazing adventures like he did. I will say I’m glad my boys never drew scenes like that, because as an adult, I’m pretty sure they were all over the wall. Consider this my warning – tell your kids he drew on a big sheet of paper and you’ll be safe.
If you haven’t got Netflix yet, what are you waiting for? There is SO much to see for both the kids and for the adults. We pretty much watch nothing else since I love the convenience of watching what I want, when I want, with no pvr or waiting for a show time involved.
So, gather up your popcorn, your drinks and your family and hit the big screen in your living room this Friday night (January 16th) for Puss in Boots Netflix debut! Enjoy!
