Top 10 Animated Kids Shows to Stream in July


Given the prominence of streaming TV in just about every household in Australia, adults aren’t the only ones enjoying their Netflix and chill-out sessions… because the kids are having a blast as well. Most streaming providers in the country today offers a kids category, delivering some of the best shows that are specially created for your little ones and even for you, the young at heart.

It’s true what they say that your life changes once you have kids. For one, you’d probably be watching as much cartoons as you do with your favourite shows — or even more. Kids nowadays do have a lot of options to choose from when it comes to shows that they can watch during their free and down time. But granted that they have set rules of when they can watch their shows, it’s better to have them watch the best and most entertaining and possibly educational at the same time.
