Parents, remember when Netflix introduced a set of New Year’s countdowns to help you convince your kids the clock had conveniently struck midnight right around their bedtime? Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news? The streamer New Year’s countdown feature still exists. The bad news? While there used to be more than 10 different options, your options are more limited now.
If you’re still looking for a bedtime tool, you can queue up Skylanders Academy: New Year’s Eve Countdown. The short clocks in at just under two minutes, and features the animated Netflix fantasy show’s main cast ringing in the New Year. If your kids need a refresher, all three seasons of the show are currently available on the streamer.
To find the countdown for the kids in your life, simply type in Skylanders Academy: New Year’s Eve Countdown into the Netflix search bar, or click here.
If Skylanders Academy isn’t your cup of tea, Netflix made a New Year’s Eve countdown last year with your favorite characters from Larva Island. Simply ignore the “2021” in the title of the video, and you’re on your way to fooling your kids that it’s time to clang pots and pans (and then quickly scurry them off to bed, so you and yours can properly celebrate with champers and some adult time).
Let’s hope for plenty more 2023 countdowns from Netflix at this time next year!
