New Netflix kids shows and movies seem to debut daily and it can be hard to wade through it all to find what your tots are in the mood to watch. If you need a little help finding the good stuff, this Netflix sub-genre hack will totally help even the most indecisive of kids.

While you can search Netflix for specific titles, the platform doesn’t allow you to browse by categories, which means unless you know the exact name of the show your kids love, you can be out of luck and end up stumbling onto a marathon of–sigh– Calliou or whatever happens to pop-up at the top. Yeah, it’s happened to all of us.
