Bonding Over Superheroes with Netflix

Aiden: Mommy, who do you think would win in a battle? Optimus Prime or Bumblebee?" 
Me: Uh... Optimus Prime?" 
Aiden: Me too! Who do you think would win... Bumblebee or Iron Man? 
Me: Um... Bumblebee?  
Aiden: No! You're supposed to say 'Iron Man'. Iron Man or The Hulk? 
Me: The Hulk. Definitely The Hulk. 
Aiden: Yep! 

Superheroes. This has been the topic of our recent daily conversations. Lots and lots of Superheroes. Aiden's always been a fan of superheroes, and more recently, he's been including me in the topic of discussion and in his superhero play. I'm cool with it -- especially if it allows for us to bond and connect.

I've also used it as a way to introduce him to the cool superheroes that were popular when I was his age and when I was growing up. And a great way to really show him what it was all about is to, well, show him. So it's pretty dope that Netflix.com has awesome throwbacks that the entire family will enjoy! Here are a few of my faves:

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers 
I lived for this show when I was growing up! I mean, who doesn't like cool teenagers who hang out at the mall and then use their powers to kick Rita Repulsa's butt?! Even though television channels show the updated version of the show, there's nothing like the original. And every time Aiden and I discuss the show, he knows -- Mommy's the pink ranger!

Inspector Gadget
In this funny and family-friendly show, Inspector Gadget must face his old enemy, the evil Dr. Claw, who has reactivated M.A.D., his global crime syndicate. What's not to love?!

Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends
Aiden's already a Spidey superfan! So he loves anything Spider-man related. In this series, he's joined by his friends Firestar and Iceman as they fight NYC's most dangerous villains.

With all these throwback shows on Netflix.com, connecting with your littles with be as easy as The Hulk defeating Iron Man!
