If you’ve ever wanted to literally invite Netflix to your birthday party, good news — it’s now possible

Throwing a birthday party for your BFF or loved one is one of the most rewarding things ever. But let’s face it — it can be really stressful. From cute invites and the perfect theme to on-point decorations and a spectacular cake, putting together a killer party feels a lot more complicated than it used to be. And throwing a party for your favorite little loved ones can be particularly trying, but you’re not alone.

In a new Netflix study, 71% of parents revealed that they feel a lot of pressure to throw the perfect party for their kids.

The top causes of stress were time, money, social media, and competition. Netflix knows that throwing the perfect party isn’t easy, so they’re giving parents a little birthday gift of their own: the chance for kids to (virtually) celebrate their birthday with their favorite characters.


While Netflix can’t hire a party planner to bake that perfect birthday cake, they can take off the pressure just a little bit with its new feature. The streaming platform just released 15 new birthday videos from some of your children’s favorite shows, including All Hail King Julien, LEGO Ninjago, Luna Petunia, and Trollhunters.

The 15 one-minute videos feature some of Netflix’s most popular characters wishing your kids a very happy birthday, and it’s as easy as typing “birthday” into the Netflix search bar. Just press play and your children’s birthday dreams will come true!


So next time you’re struggling to throw the birthday party of the century, remember Netflix has your back!
