I love my kids’ birthdays. All parents do, I am sure.
Kids are THE biggest blessings in lifeÂ AND your pain in you-know-where on bad days. Sort of like a mixed bag.
You get the idea.
Anyways,Â On thisÂ very special day you celebrate your little ones. You bake cookies and cake and throw a fun birthday party.
But I am not gonna lie, hosting a party stress me out. I am thinking of the past years’Â DIY disasters that donâ€™t look anything like the Pinterest inspirations. Full disclosure? Too many times, I haveÂ resorted to Plan B’s and C’sÂ because some things didn’t go the way I imagined.
When it comes to planning your kidsâ€™ birthday parties, the pressure can be overwhelming for parents. I know I am not alone.Â Over three-quarters (82%)Â of parents around the world wish there was an easier way to make birthdays feel special for their kids.
Wish granted, no candles required!
NetflixÂ is granting parents the ultimate birthday gift with the launch ofÂ 14 Birthdays On-DemandÂ featurettes. Starring the characters in your kidsâ€™ favourite shows likeÂ Beat Bugs,Â BarbieÂ andÂ Pokemon,Â your kids will feel like the characters are singing just for them. And with the worldâ€™s most common birthday on September 16th (hmm),Â NetflixÂ is giving parents the ultimate birthday hack rightÂ when they need it most.
How,Â you ask?
Well,Â Nearly half (44%)Â of parents around the world feel the pressure to be â€śparty perfectâ€ť for their kids but you donâ€™t have to go overboard on the confetti and streamers.Â Netflix knows that itâ€™s parents who are the real heroes on the big day.Â Well, happy birthday toÂ you, mom and dad.

With this new hack, parents can simply press play and kidsâ€™ favorite characters will sing them a special birthday greeting –Â made just for themÂ (or so theyâ€™ll think).
