In just a few more weeks the kids will be out of school and we can officially kick off the summer season. No more rushing first thing in the morning, plenty more relaxing and soaking in the summer. The change in pace makes summer the perfect time to dig into your My List or discover your next Netflix favourite.
The Ottawa #StreamTeam was treated to a Netflix Summer Preview party at the Westin Ottawa Oak Room! The kids were super excited when they saw the room was set up like a big Netflix livingroom.
There were white couches and pillows for those who wanted to get comfy. There were tables set up with decorations, colouring pages and iPads for everyone to use. There was also a Netflix kids review corner where we got to take pictures or videos of our experience. Netflix had a snack buffet set up plus we also got treated to a yummy lunch in between our show previewing. Talk about being spoiled, the kids could have definitely stayed there all day!
We got to be the first in Canada to take a look at Dreamworks Animation, Voltron: Legendary Defender which is a remake of one of the most popular fan-favourite shows of all time.
In this all-new series, five unlikely heroes and their flying robot lions unite to form the mega powerful Voltron and defend the universe from evil. My son loved the preview episode and can't wait to watch more! Voltron premiers June 10th!
We also got to check out the first episode from upcoming season 3 of Netflix Original series Dragons: Race to the edgepremieres June 24th! The kids were already into this show and can't wait to see what the rest of season 3 will bring! They love being part of the #streamteam!
