Netflix has developed a new feature to help parents introduce their children to new content: the Netflix Kids Mystery Box. With the new feature, parents can click a button to see a new kid-friendly movie or show their child hasn’t seen yet.

“Children are drawn to what they love — their favorite toys, food, songs — and it’s hard to get them to try something new. That’s why today we’re launching a new Mystery Box feature on TVs around the world, to give kids a fun and safe place to discover their next favorite series and movies, or reconnect with a familiar face — it doesn’t matter whether it’s a comedy series in a popular franchise like Boss Baby: Back In The Crib, or an animated adventure film with a whole new cast of lovable characters like Back to the Outback,” said TJ Marston, Director, Product Innovation – Kids and Family , at Netflix, in a press release.

The process to take advantage of this new feature is pretty simple. You can follow these steps to use the Kids Mystery Box:

#Sign in to Netflix with a “Kids” profile

#Find the “Favorites” row at the top of the home page.

#According to Netflix, this series is character-driven to help kids connect with the characters more easily

#Hover over the sparkling Mystery Box tile with a question mark on it to discover a title that hasn’t been viewed on the account.

This isn’t the first time Netflix has rolled out a new feature aimed at making it easier for kids to discover age-appropriate content. In July last year, the streaming platform launched a new “Top 10 Series” for age-restricted profiles, featuring the most popular children’s content in the user’s country.

At the same time, the company introduced bi-weekly children’s summary emails, which were sent to the emails of account holders with at least one child account set up. These emails contained recommendations based on the child’s favorite shows and movies, printable coloring pages and activities inspired by the child’s favorite character, hot topics or theme characters showing the types of programs your child enjoys the most, and tips for using kids features Netflix.
