“Help!  What do I watch with my preschooler or toddler on Netflix?”  I’ve seen it all over Twitter Facebook and Instagram.  I’ve got you covered.  This quick guide will give you the lowdown on four awesome cartoons to watch with your child aged 2 to 4 years old and give you enough time for a quick shower!  Depending on your child’s attention span, you may have time to shave your legs as well.

Wanda and the Alien is a Netflix cartoon about a rabbit named Wanda, her alien friend Alien and their adventures. Alien is able to do magic, but this often causes simple problems for Wanda and her family.   It’s a famous UK book series turned cartoon.   To read my full review of Wanda and the Alien, see this blog.

Beat Bugs  is one of my favorite Netflix cartoons, it is centered around five young bugs who live in an overgrown suburban backyard and learn life lessons while having adventures.  And it’s all set to the music of the BEATLES! I believe it’s Australian and the characters have American accents.   To read my full review of Beat Bugs, see this blog.

Kazoops is a fun children’s Netflix cartoon following Monty and his pet pig’s adventure with a strong focus on critical thinking skills. This Australian-based animated series is perfect for preschoolers.  To read my full review of Kazoops, see this blog.

Ask the StoryBots is an American animated children’s television series based on the characters from the StoryBots educational apps and videos.  To read my full review of Ask the StoryBots, see this blog.
