Remember the days when you had to flick through every television channel just to find something to watch? It was made worse when you had to find something the entire family wanted to watch.
Growing up (back in the 70’s), my dad had full control over the television set. He watched what HE wanted to watch. My mom was more into reading books. My brother had his own television and my sister had a busy social life and spent most of her free time with the horse. That left me to watch whatever my dad was watching, which was primarily sports, news and Benny Hill (which is wildly inappropriate for a kid – even if I did find a lot of it funny).
Fast forward to today. Who needs to flick around the different television stations to find something to watch. Now there are plenty of streaming services that allow you to watch what you want to watch, when you want to watch it.
My husband streams a lot of shows and movies off a couple of different platforms. I personally enjoy watching regular television. I am a big fan of educational programs like What on Earth?, Ancient Aliens and Paranormal Caught on Camera.
I remember when my kids were little. We would cater to what they wanted to watch. We tried to steer them towards stuff we liked to watch too (when it was family time). When it was just them, they were allowed to pop in any VHS tape or DVD they wanted to watch.
I would never let them watch a streaming service when they were younger. There was no way of knowing what kind of content they could stumble across.
There is a streaming service that I wish was available when my kids were younger. It’s called Kabillion. Kabillion is a family friendly streaming platform, so you never have to worry about your kids coming across “questionable” or inappropriate content.
Do you want to hear something even better? Kabillion is completely FREE! That’s right – FREE!
Kabillion offers a wide range of popular animated content for kids of all ages! Shows like Thomas the Tank Engine and new addition, Bubu and the Little Owls, will delight preschoolers, while Barbie Dreamtopia and Transformers Prime are just some of the many offerings the school-age set will love! Kabillion even features plenty of cherished classics, like Bobby’s World and Gumby, so you can share some of your own favorites with your family – and discover new ones together, too!
With Kabillion, you and your family can take the show(s) on the road! It’s available as a free app on Roku, XUMO, Amazon Fire TV, and Apple TV, which makes it ideal for road trips and taking the kiddos on the go! It’s also available as a free VOD service with most major cable providers, making watching at home just as easy.
Seriously… where was Kabillion years ago? I would have LOVED to have had this service for when my kids were younger.
I checked out Kabillion for myself.
I love that they separate the shows so you can easily find content for your child (or grandchild’s) age range.
For the really little ones (0-6 years old), Kabillion has shows like Chloe’s Closet, Bubu, Thomas & Friends (my son loved Thomas!), My Little Pony, Bobby’s World (so cute!), and Geronimo Stilton, to name a few. My son was (and still is) a “reluctant reader.” He would actually read the Geronimo Stilton books. If Kabillion was available years ago, I think he would watch that show over and over again. He loved it that much.
My husband and I have been watching Gumby on Kabillion. We grew up with Gumby. The awesome thing is that Kabillion shows the CLASSIC Gumby show. It’s not a remake or updated version. It’s THE classic Gumby. We love it. We’ve watched all the episodes Kabillion has. Our kids think Gumby is really weird. LOL!
Kabillion has shows for children up to twelve years old. I think after that age children could try other streaming services (with parental controls of course). I work with upper elementary aged children (9-12 year olds) and there are plenty of shows on Kabillion I know that they would love like the LEGO (Ninjago, Nexo Knights, Friends), Transformers and Pokeman.
If your family is like ours, a weekly “family movie night” is a lot of fun. My kids would take turns picking out a movie and we’d make popcorn, hot cocoa or other goodies to enjoy while watching a movie. Kabillion doesn’t have movies, but they do have plenty of episodes of great family friendly program you can enjoy. Instead of a movie, why not watch a few episodes of your favorite show? There is nothing wrong with a little “binge watching” either.
If you are looking for a great alternative to today’s entertainment – something that is family friendly, check out Kabillion at Kabillion.com. The brand is also on social media. All of their links are found at the bottom of their website.
