When you are a parent, sometimes, you do want your kid(s) to sit still and stay quiet. It is necessary, we understand, both for your sanity and your toddler’s benefit. But how do you do that? With a little bit of help, right? And what if that help comes in the form of an online babysitter — through a program that makes sure, your toddler will stay absorbed at least for a few hours a day. And when you speak of children’s TV shows, it is also necessary that they are informative along with being enjoyable. After all, these years are pretty influential for your kiddo’s growth. Well, no worries. Netflix is there to the rescue, with a huge repository of interesting, educational, and fun-filled kid’s movies and shows.

Charlie’s Colorforms City Plot: What is it about?
Charlie’s Colorforms City is based on the famous toy brand Colorforms. Colorforms are basically cute, simple toys that are created out of colorful vinyl sheets and are able to stick on a smooth surface, without using any adhesives. The various movable forms (parts) of the toys can be removed and repositioned to create numerous, different types of figures. What started as simple geometric shapes of triangles, circles, and squares, eventually progressed to include full-colored illustrated play sets, games, puzzles, interactive books, and creative activity sets for children of all ages.
In Charlie’s Colorforms City, Charlie takes viewers on a sticky, innovative storytelling adventure, where he creates cute, creative shapes on the way. The magical, loveable and hilarious Charlie is accompanied with a colorful cast of characters during his quests. Along with this playful team, your kiddo can travel to his favorite virtual places — to outer space, to the Wild West, or stay right in his home — wherever he wants to go!
