Netflix Titles to Celebrate Mini Milestones

This post brought to you by Netflix. All opinions are my own.

As we get older, milestones are few and far between. Landing your dream job, getting married, having a baby.

But kids, on the other hand, have a lot worth celebrating. From bringing home your first pet to going to your first high school dance, frame-worthy moments go far beyond the baby book.

In recognition of “mini milestones,” we’ve compiled a list of movies and TV episodes that highlight a variety of these achievements. Whatever “firsts” your family is celebrating this fall, Netflix can relate.

Do you have any special shows that make you think of a “first” or milestone?




  1. Karen Glatt says

    The Flinstones I remember watching and having a lot of fun laughing at this show. My first movie I saw on a VCR was with Kevin Costner in Robin Hood. It is still my favorite movie. I also love the animated movie the Lion King. I can watch it over and over.

  2. Nicole says

    My kids love Bill Nye the Science Guy, and my daughter really like her Dora The Explorer show. I love shows they can watch that promote learning, and we have Netflix and love it.

  3. what did we ever do before netflix???

    I had Netflix not too long ago and loved having it. I would love to get it again. It was nice to have family shows you can choose from anytime of the day.

  5. Tammy S says

    The only shows or movies I can think of that make me think of a milestone are the 80’s classics like 16 Candles, Say Anything, Breakfast Club. Those movies always make me think of high school and graduating.

    I remember Punky Brewster as a child growing up in the early 80’s

    I see some on my kids’ favorites made the list- The Hive and The Croods! I’m not buying a house but I’ve already watched all the episodes of House Hunters on Netflix! Haha! hoping they put more episodes up soon.

    What a fun idea, finding a show to correspond with what’s happening in real life! Let’s see… for a trip to Canada, I might watch The Mercer Report. When home sick, however, I will definitely NOT watch Contagion or Outbreak! LOL
