Ring in an Early New Year With Netflix

Inspector Gadget New Year's Eve

So you’ve got young kids and you want to ring in the New Year, but you don’t need them staying up until midnight on New Year’s Eve? No problem. Netflix has you covered.

Ring in the new year whenever you want, with six different short videos featuring characters from kids’ shows. Each one is about 2 minutes long and ends with the 10-second countdown to the new year. Pull it up on the screen at 8pm, and hustle your toddler off to bed before your game night (at least, that’s how I’m celebrating New Year’s Eve).

Kickstarter Alert: SwapBots Augmented Reality

Your options are: Care Bears, Inspector Gadget, Peabody and Sherman, King Julien, Project Mc², and Puffin Rock.

Of course, I can’t guarantee that your kids will actually go to bed after they watch this, or that they’ll believe that it’s actually midnight, but at least you can have fun counting down together with your kids.
