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.


Kids know what they like, so why not let them choose from age-appropriate titles in your library and the Vudu free collection?

With Kids Mode you can let the kids watch on their favorite devices and only age-appropriate titles for the age range you select (rated by the experts at Common Sense Media) will be viewable and watchable. Everything else will be invisible until you exit Kids Mode (you can even set a PIN to keep Kids Mode turned on). Get all the details on this stress-reducing feature here.

Enjoy a worry-free holiday that keeps everyone entertained (and out of the way) on Vudu!
