Netflix Birthdays On Demand

Last week I went for a really exciting day out in London to meet the team at Netflix and some other great bloggers who are part of the Netflix Stream Team this year. I thought that I was a Netflix addict already but I learnt so much about how to enhance my Netflix experience. Keep an eye out for a post soon about all the Netflix hacks that I learned!

One of the great new features I learned about was the new Netflix Birthdays On Demand feature. I know my children are going to absolutely love this so I just had to share it with you all so you can use it for your little ones.

netflix birthday's on demand

Netflix have discovered that two thirds (64%) of children’s parties are themed after their favourite TV shows and movies. I know that we’ve been to our fair share of themed birthday parties! Netflix knew that a personalised birthday message from their favourite TV character would go down an absolute storm with little ones so they created this fabulous feature.

There are 15 Netflix Birthdays On-Demand, where characters from Pokėmon, LEGO Ninjago, Trollhunters, Beat Bugs and more, help make birthday celebrations that little more special! With this new feature, you can simply press play anytime and anywhere, and your little one’s favourite characters will sing them a special birthday greeting – made just for them (or so they’ll think).

Simply search “birthday” on Netflix to unlock a special performance from kids’ favourite characters,


There are messages from these 15 shows:

  • DreamWorks All Hail King Julien
  • Barbie
  • Beat Bugs
  • DreamWorks Dinotrux
  • Las Leyendas
  • LEGO Friends
  • LEGO Ninjago
  • Luna Petunia
  • Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir
  • My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
  • Pokémon
  • Project Mc2
  • Skylanders Academy
  • DreamWorks Trollhunters
  • Word Party

I know that Little Miss J’s face would absolutely light up to have a message on her birthday in a My Little Pony or Babies show, I can’t wait until her birthday to show her!

    This is so interesting, I had no idea that you could unlock such videos on Netflix. You can definitely make your children a big surprise with their favorite characters singing Happy Birthday just for them.

    What a sweet idea, I love it when companies go the extra mile and think of things like this. We have a birthday coming up in the house, and having just checked I think his favourite show is on there… Thanks for the tip! 🙂

    I’ve heard about what Netflixs do for birthdays and I think it’s a great idea. I’m sure kids would love being surprise greeted by their favorite characters from their favorite show.

    What a fun idea! My middle son was mad about Pokemon when he was little, and I know he would have loved to get a Pokemon birthday greeting

    Great idea, and I can see loads of shows that both of mine would be thrilled to ‘hear from’, as it were 🙂
