Last year we decided that Roo was old enough and mature enough to have access to Netflix on her tablet. This way she would be able to sit and watch her favourite shows without having to ask to put it on via the TV in the front room or kick Tigger off the PS3 in the play room when he is playing Skylanders.
Over the months she has found a few series that she has really enjoyed as well as getting her dose of teen drama films. The beauty of Netflix is that she is able to have her own profile so that she can find what she wants to watch as well as receive recommendations based on her viewing habits.
A Tweens Guide To Netflix
I decided to ask her what it is she loves about Netflix and her recommendations for tweens to watch (written by Roo)…
Dance Academy is about Tara and how she dances. On the first day, she meets a girl called Cat who Tara asks where the changing rooms are but Cat sends her to the boys changing rooms.

Tara is teased by the other dancers because she went into the boys changing rooms. There is this other girl called Abigail who thinks she is the best dancer in the academy. She’s also top at everything.
