You have to love what Netflix comes up with when they produce their Netflix Originals. Although I love being able to stream popular movies and television shows, their originals go above and beyond when it comes to entertainment. Just this August, they have families all around the world coming together to celebrate the launch of Beat Bugs, the new Netflix original series inspired by the music of the Beatles.
The Beat Bugs are five charming, funny and adventurous best friends who have a knack for getting themselves into mischief and mayhem. The animated show will feature some of the most well-known Beatles songs woven into the narrative of each episode, with Eddie Vedder, P!nk, James Bay, Sia and more recording their rendition of an iconic song.
We were provided with all the essentials for our very own Beat Bugs jam session, cool tees, a mic, a harmonica and a tambourine. Who says watching television is “inactive” – not when you have shows like this developing children’s love of music, nurturing their love of moving and dance and activating their imagination with awesome story lines!
I think my personal favorite component of the show is the music. My husband and I have eclectic taste in music, our boys hear it all. Country, pop, classic, oldies, rap, techno. So a show inspired by the music and featuring songs from other artists is amazing. I tried to get my sons to sing some of their favorite songs, maybe even All You Need is Love, but boys will be boys! They had more fun hamming it up!
And I LOVE these tees that we were sent for the show! Netflix needs a t-shirt store, because the tees they send us are some of my favorite! So soft, colorful and fun! Thank you Netflix!
