Netflix Unveils Easy-to-Search Section for Kids

08/25/2011 at 02:00 PM ET

Family night just got more fun (and easy!) with Netflix‘s new Just for Kids section. Now, instead of searching from the main page, you can just click on this new tab for movies and TV shows that your whole brood will enjoy.

Just search via your tot’s favorite actor or character (Raven Symone, Miley Cyrus, SpongeBob Squarepants and more) or genre (action, sci-fi, adventure) and break out the popcorn. It’s no wonder celeb parents Neil Patrick Harris, Julianna Margulies and Peter Facinelli are fans of this simple-to-use video site.

Even better? The company only features content that’s appropriate for kids 12 and under so if they’re watching alone while you’re close by, you don’t have to worry about them finding entertainment that’s too grown-up.

Um, aren’t Neil’s kids little babies ? Isn’t that a bit soon to worry about finding videos for them ?

Because that’s just what kids need….MORE entertainment.

there is an app called Kideo that is you tube videos for kids. I wish Netflix had parental controls on it. If it does, then someone tell me!

Not sure the two kid’s glazed over expression (closet to the TV) is good advertising…

@ Megan, I thought the same thing! Maybe they are getting royalties from it, but to each his own.

@ Megan…kinda like Ivana Trump was a “big fan” of some organic baby food when her baby was a week old. Do they really think we see a celeb name and just have to have something??? I really believe they think we’re idiots sometimes, the way they market items. Haha

I won’t be impressed by Netflix’s kid-friendliness until they give us the ability to edit or delete the “recently watched” list that shows up when you first bring Netflix up on your TV, which currently shows what EVERYONE in the family has been watching, no matter the rating.

Future couch potatoes!

Neil Patrick Harris’s partner has older children from a previous relationship. I think he was probably referring to them.
