There’s something pretty awesome about connecting with your kids over something you loved when you were young, am I right? It offers them a glimpse into what you were like as a kid yourself and gives you a way to relive your childhood. Win-win.
As it turns out, cartoons such as the new Netflix original series Inspector Gadget and Danger Mouse are giving parents and their kids loads to bond over. Not only are the old-school classics we all grew up on more popular than ever, but new reboots are introducing a whole new generation to some of our most favorite characters.
I love snuggling up with my boys on the sofa to watch Inspector Gadget.
I plan on spending some time with the boys this summer watching these retro shows for sure, but watching them made me think back to all the other fun stuff we usually do over the summer in our family.
It wouldn’t be summer in our family without a visit to the local amusement park, Canobie Lake.
And we never miss going to watch the Patriots Training Camp every August.
We are big strawberry lovers, so every June we go strawberry picking.
We love Old Orchard Beach in Maine! Here the boys are on their first trip there back in 2011!
And if you are from the area, you probably have pictures of your kids just like this at Santa’s Village. We’re there every summer, too.
And of course, we go to Disney World every year – usually in the summer, but in 2013 we changed it up and went for Halloween.
So now that I have had my #tbt moment, I wanted to tell you about all the other cool throw back shows that you can stream on Netflix so that you can have your very own throw back.
What’s your favorite show from when you were younger?
