There’s a lot that goes into throwing the perfect Thanksgiving get-together, from cleaning to cooking to cleaning up from cooking. Having little ones underfoot can add an extra layer of stress you don’t need, so why not keep them happy and interested with some fun, age-appropriate entertainment until dinner time rolls around?


Younger kids love spending time with their favorite TV characters, but a full 30-minute episode can risk them getting too involved to stop in the middle. Short and sweet programs like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Molang, and Dinosaur Train will keep preschoolers engaged and learning with bite-sized adventures you can turn on and off as needed.


Older kids want to watch the latest hit movies all their friends are talking about, and you want to let them, but you might still have concerns about some of the content.

Family Play* lets you put on top titles like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Captain Marvel, and Godzilla: King of the Monsters while selecting specific content types like Language, Violence, and Sex/Nudity that you would like to seamlessly skip over, leaving everything else the same.

Browse the full list of Family Play eligible titles here, get the full scoop on Family Play here, and check out the above titles and more in our Thanksgiving Sale happening now.

Entering adolescence can be the most daunting quest of all, even for everyone’s favorite explorer. Dora is back in an all-new live-action adventure with all her familiar friends from the hit animated show, but she’s grown up since her days helping jungle creatures and foiling Swiper the fox.

In Dora and the Lost City of Gold the intrepid adventurer is a teenager setting off for her first day of high school. The movie is a great coming-of-age story for fans of the series, with plenty of the same action, puzzles, and positive messages families know and love. If you’re unsure if this slightly more grown-up Dora is right for the kids in your family, our new Family Play* feature can help. With Family Play you can skip content like violence and strong language in eligible films, selecting which content to skip based on you and your family’s preferences.

Dora and the Lost City of Gold is recommended by the in-depth reviewers at Common Sense Media for viewers ages 8 and up, since it does contain some teenage romance, an armed hostage situation, and some close calls with traps and other danger. If you want to let younger kids enjoy the positive messages and role models without some of the above, you can simply turn on Family Play, select what types of content you’d like to skip, and enjoy the show.
