How Netflix and Mater Save the Day (Every Day)

I am so thrilled to have this opportunity to share my experience as part of this sponsored campaign from Netflix. All thoughts and opinions are my own.



Getting our entire family out the door on time every morning is a challenge (understatement), but Netflix and Mater save the day (seriously).  The morning starts with the usual activities of getting dressed and eating breakfast but is magnified with conflict and energy as our 3-year old twins get revved up for the day and as we keep our tween daughter in motion. Once breakfast is done – the cheers erupt as our boys ‘get a show’ and pick something from the dedicated kids category on Netflix. We still have a battle as to whose turn it is to pick a show – usually “Car Toons: Mater’s Tall Tales” but sometimes “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”, “Thomas and Friends” or “Curious George”. On the rare occasion that our 10-year old daughter is ready for school early, we choose “Pingu”. Once the show starts, peace begins and it becomes my turn to get everything else ready before we dash out the door.

Netflix-Mater's Tall Tales


How does Netflix save the day?

  • Netflix has a dedicated kids section filled with hundreds of the kids’ favorite characters – making the decision easier for all
  • Our family’s source of truth for media age-appropriateness, Common Sense Media, offers age ratings and content descriptions for smarter choices
  • We can keep up the morning routine whether streaming from our TV, computer or iPad (or even iPhone) -downloading the app on our devices and logging in was easy. Even on our computer, we can stream via
  • Content is commercial-free (HUGE bonus)

Netflix: Mater's Tall Tales


How does Mater save the day?

While Mater becomes ‘Rescue Squad Mater’ and rescues Lightning McQueen from a burning building, the boys find a few minutes of calm.

While ‘El Materdor’ fights a herd of bulldozers in Spain, I can pack the lunch bags.

And, while ‘Monster Truck Mater’ becomes a professional monster truck wrestler, I can finally get dressed for work.

Everyone is dressed, has eaten, applied sunscreen and is prepared with a lunch – Success!  Thank you Netflix and Mater!
