Get The Kids To Bed Faster With Netflix's New '5 Minute Favourite' Videos

Get the Kids to Bed Faster With Netflix's New

If you telling your kids it's time for bed usually leads to them pleading for "just one more episode," Netflix's new Dinotrux 5 Minute Favourites episodes might let you both win.

According to a survey conducted by Netflix, 61% of the more than 7000 parents surveyed had experienced kids trying to stall their bed time. This got Netflix thinking of ways to make TV time easier for parents. The short episodes, based on Dreamworks' popular Dinotrux Netflix series, tell a complete story in the span of five minutes. It lets your kids get the "one more episode" they want, and it lets you put the kids to bed earlier. Right now it's just a few episodes, but if it picks up in popularity, Netflix might expand the concept to more of their kids programming. To find the episodes, just search "5 minute favourites" in your Netflix app.
