Collider Kids: ‘A StoryBots Christmas’ Special Brings Holiday Cheer to Netflix

     December 3, 2017


Here at Collider, we cover a lot of stuff, be it Star Wars, superheroes, or cinephile fare, and everything from movies and TV, to video games and web series. There’s something for everyone. But there’s so much stuff out there that sometimes our younger audience members get left out. So every once in a while, we’d like to shine a spotlight on some family-friendly content that parents and caretakers can confidently watch with the little ones.

In our Sunday “Collider Kids” segment, we’ll be focusing in on family-friendly TV shows, movies, or digital series that are safe to watch with the kids and a fun viewing experience for caretakers as well. Last week, we featured a bunch of holiday specials available on Amazon Prime for you to watch with the little ones. This week, that trend continues with more holiday-themed specials, shorts, and upcoming episodes.
