This month has been great for new Netflix releases. If you haven’t been watching Stranger Things already you HAVE to check it out.
It is a sci-fi series with lots of retro 80s throwback thrown in. It reminds me a lot of E.T. and The Goonies in its style and theme in that it follows the story of a group of young friends.
Set in a small Indiana town, the story centers around the mysterious disappearance of a young boy named Will, the search effort that ensues (led by his mother, played by Winona Ryder), and the arrival of an odd young girl with strange powers.
While Stranger Things is definitely more for adults there was also a great new Netflix original released that is perfect for my almost preschooler.
Word Party from the Jim Henson Company is an interactive series for preschoolers that teaches kids new words with four super cute animals. This is perfect for Loo Loo who has been slower to talk and Word Party keeps her entertained while helping her develop her vocabulary. She loves the cute animals. Netflix even kindly sent us some masks of the characters in the series and my girls love them!
