Parents, get ready for your victory lap because your bedtime-stalling kids just met their match. It’s no secret kids will say everything from the outrageous – “I hate the inside of my eyelids” – to the hard-to-argue-with “I’m starving-dying of thirst-need to pee” excuse to avoid bedtime o’clock. Now, with the help of Netflix and DreamWorks Animation, grown-ups can stop the kids’ shenanigans while making some mischief of their own.
With today’s launch of five-minute-long ‘favorites’ of the hit series Dinotrux from DreamWorks Animation, parents can offer up an ENTIRE SHOW – that’s 300 whole seconds, kids – to motivate little ones to get ready for bedtime, pronto. Kids will think they’re getting away with murder, but parents will get the last laugh when the show ends after just five minutes and the kids are tucked in on time. Parents: 1, Kids’ Bedtime Stalls: 0.
While short on time, the new Dinotrux 5 Minute Favorites are big on kid-approved action. Netflix and DreamWorks Animation engineered the new shows knowing exactly what kids love most: rewatching their favorite scenes. Parents know when kids like a show, they really like it. And ask to re-watch their favorite scenes over, and over, and over again. The three new 5 Minute Favorites, launching today on Netflix, showcase favorite scenes following the rapid adventures of Ty-Rux and Revvit as they demonstrate important lessons of teamwork and friendship – even among the unlikeliest of pairs. To watch on Netflix simply search for 5 Minute Favorites.
It turns out that bedtime stalls are a universal problem faced by parents around the world. Netflix polled parents across seven countries (US, UK, France, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and Mexico) and found 61 percent of parents who are in charge of getting their children tucked in at night are dealing with their kids’ creative stall tactics at bedtime. All of that lollygagging adds up to parents spending nearly 20 minutes every single night negotiating with kids to get them into bed.
