If you have young children, then you will want to choose toddler Christmas movies on Netflix that are appropriate for your toddler so that they enjoy the fun too.
All these Kids’ Christmas Movies listed are currently on Netflix, but that is subject to change without notice. All movies are G-rated.
Toddler Christmas Movies on Netflix
I realized that lots of families have been searching for toddler Christmas movies, especially on Netflix. Rated G means suggested for general audiences. Generally, this means there’s nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children. This could pertain to language, violence, etc.
Rated TV-Y means the program is designed to be appropriate for all children. The themes and elements in this program are specifically designed for a very young audience, including children from ages 2–6. This program is not expected to frighten younger children.
But picking something that is suitable for your 2 – 6 year old can be difficult. So we’ve put together our own list of Christmas Movies that both our kids loved watching when they were toddlers and preschoolers.
About Toddlers and TV/Movies
Turning your toddler onto TV for the first time can feel like a big, scary step. Once you introduce screens, is your kid ever going to want to go back to reading books? Are you going to hear nothing but the whiny whimsical voices and grating music of young kids’ cartoons for the next few years? How will commercials, gender stereotypes, characters’ bratty behavior, and the lure of a candy-colored on-screen world affect such impressionable young minds?
Yes, TV feels like a slippery slope. But if you’re thoughtful about your choices and balance TV time with other activities, there’s no reason not to allow your toddler to enjoy some quality entertainment. Start out slow with toddler-targeted shows that are gentle, brief, and full of age-appropriate content. Make an effort to find well-made programs that truly engage your toddler (if she’s singing the songs to her stuffed animals, it’s probably a good one!). Use the shows’ subjects as starting points for pretend games and conversation. Co-view when you can, or follow up with questions about the shows when they’re over. And take heart in the fact that kids can actually learn both preschool skills such as letters and numbers and social-emotional skills from well-chosen viewing. (Common Sense Media)
(Watching a Christmas movie together is a GREAT Christmas tradition for kids if you’re looking for something kid-friendly to do as a family.)
This list is great for parents asking:
- What is a good Christmas movie for a 2 year old?
- What is a good Christmas movie for a 5 year old?
- What is a good Christmas movie for a 3 year old?
