The New Netflix Shows Your Kids (and you) Will Obsess Over This Holiday Season

Marshmallows, hot chocolate and our snuggle-in blankets! Netflix has tons of new family-friendly countdowns you don’t want to miss! Here are our picks:

 

A Story Bot's Christmas

 

A Story Bot’s Christmas

In this half-hour show, one of the StoryBots goes to seek gift-giving advice from Santa, only to learn that Christmas isn’t just about presents. The positive message — and short running time — make this appropriate for the littlest viewers.
