Spirit Riding Free
If your children loved Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002), then they'll likely enjoy this new adaptation of the horse's story. Follow a young girl who forms a tight bond with Spirit and has plenty of Western adventures with her best friends. Created for children ages three to ten, this spunky series is a real crowd pleaser.
The Long, Long Holiday
This cute animated series tells the story of three young siblings who are forced to learn about country life during the Nazi occupation of their home. Although the show takes place during World War II, it's still very kid-friendly and great for viewers ages eight to twelve.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
Lemony Snicket's novels enraptured a generation of young readers. This year, you can watch books one through nine be brought to life via Netflix's popular adaptation of the series. The show is just morbid enough to appeal to adults and kids alike, but still funny and lighthearted at times. Recommended for viewers ages eight and up.
If you have a little boy between the ages of three and seven, chances are, the words "dinosaur" and "truck" are two of his favorites. Put on an episode of Dinotrux Supercharged, which is even more impressive than the original Dinotrux since the characters have new powers, challenges, and friends.

So many of us grew up with Ms. Frizzle and her crazy antics. Now, children can take a spin with the famous teacher's little sister, Fiona. Join her class for plenty of educational fun and wild adventures. It's a great choice for children between the ages of three and seven.
Spy Kids: Mission Critical
The Spy Kids are back, but this time, they're animated. Watch as junior spies Juni and Carmen Cortez defeat evil villains and learn to do what grown-ups can't. If you loved the original Spy Kids movies, then you'll definitely enjoy watching this adaptation with your children between the ages of five and ten.
