Disclosure As part of the Netflix Stream Team, I receive products and perks. All opinions are my own.
Many parents admit to feeling social-media fueled pressure to give their kids a huge party (44%), most wish they didn’t have to go Pinterest-crazy to give their kids a good time (69%). Well, happy birthday to you, mom and dad.
As many of you are aware my son has autism and the truth is, autism and Birthday parties do not go together. Kids joyfully screaming will hurt my son’s head, and it would end in many meltdowns. That’s why we don’t do parties, and that’s OK.
Instead we give our kids a choice of what they want to do on their special day. We have done a Hotel Netflix family Pizza Party. A mini vacation break to the beautiful Prince Edward Island and a trip to a theme park. My son of course would choose a Netflix Movie pizza night, and would be so happy to have his favorite characters sing “Happy Birthday” to him.
For the first time ever, Netflix has released 15 Birthdays On-Demand, where characters from LEGO Ninjago, Luna Petunia, as well as Beat Bugs and more help make birthday celebrations a piece of cake. With this new hack, parents can simply press play and kids’ favorite characters will sing them a special birthday greeting, made just for them. How awesome is that?

We have no kid’s birthdays in September, only mine and my husbands. Our next kid’s birthday is in October, but you can be sure that we will be using some of these ideas to make it more fun and a lot less stressful.
Do you Feel the Pressure to Make Their Birthday Perfect?
Which of the Birthdays On-Demand would get that OMG reaction from your kid?
