I don't know how the weather has been in your neck of the woods, but here in WNY apparently we now have a monsoon season since I swear it has been nonstop rain for weeks! Being stuck indoors isn't exactly how we planned on spending our last precious days of summer that's for sure. We do enough starring at walls during our harsh winters, so to add wall starring to our summer agendas, no bueno!
Thankkfully Netflix has been here to save the day!!!! We might not be lounging poolside as planned, but Netflix and chillen kiddo style has definetly helped with the cabin fever!
On August 19th, my daughter will be able to add one of Netflix’s newest series for kids called, Bottersnikes & Gumbles to her rainy day Netflix binge watching list. The show is currently being aired on the Seven Network in Australia and on CBBC in the UK. Soon, all of us in the States & well anywhere you can stream Netflix, will be able to enjoy the show.
The series is based off the children’s book by Australian writer S. A. Wakefield and illustrator Desmond Digby. Bottersnikes & Gumbles earned this year’s Pulcinella Award for Best Kids TV Series at the international animation festival, Cartoons on the Bay, in Venice and was nominated for a Logie Award in Australia for Most Outstanding Children's Programme.
I was able to get a sneak peak of the show with my daughter, a pretty cool blogger moment if you ask me since we were able to preview the show before anyone else!!! It's safe to say we are both excited that it will be available on Netflix soon with 26 episodes. That's a lot of rainy day binge watching which makes this mama pretty happy!!! We have also already decided that we're team Gumbles!
My daughter & I were so excited about adding a new show to our binge watching list that we turned this into a snackfest as well!!!! Candy, popcorn, sparkling grape juice, all the yummy Netflix binge watching essentials!
We even turned the Bottersnikes & Gumbles poster into a fun sparkling grape juice label! All you have to do is print the poster onto a piece of sticky backed photo paper, or just glue a normal piece of photo paper onto the bottle & bam! Instant customization!
Your little ones can start watching the show on Netflix starting on August 19th, 2016. Plus don't forget to vsit Bottersnikes & Gumbles online. You can download some cute wallpapers for your computers and tablets and some sweet coloring pages to keep the little ones occupied on those gloomy and rainy days too!
