We want our kids to be able to experience a real New Year’s Eve countdown and embrace the excitement of screaming “TEN! NINE! EIGHT!…” However, we also don’t want the little buggers running around with that same excitement at 1 AM on New Year’s day.

Thankfully Netflix is offering parents a special kid-friendly countdown that lets children celebrate the New Year before midnight. On New Year’s Eve, the video streaming site will offer countdowns with different themes, each starring different live-action characters. Watch the trailer below, be ready to start the party early.
