Rex was born on 26th June 2017 but did you know that the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revealed that Britain’s most popular birthday over the last 20 years falls on 26th September, exactly 3 months after Rex arrived, with eight of the top 10 birth dates being towards the end of September. As well as my brother and my Grandad’s birthdays both being during the month of September, I also have a niece and nephew born during that month. It goes to show how popular it is. Or should that be that it shows how popular December is?!
Netflix and Birthdays On-Demand
As a result of this statistic, Netflix say that two thirds (64%) of children’s parties are themed after their favourite TV shows or movies. No real surprise as there. Grace has regularly asked for a themed cake over the years. In order to add that extra magic to the festivities Netflix is releasing 15 Birthdays On-Demand, where characters, from Pokėmon, LEGO Ninjago, Trollhunters, Beat Bugs and more, join the birthday celebrations to make your childs day unforgettable!
Innovative Party Ideas
I am sure that I am not the only parent who has wracked their brain trying to think of new, exciting ways to beat the previous year’s party. According to their findings, Netflix say that 70% of parents recently admitted to finding their kids’ birthday parties stressful. In order to take some of the pain away the new feature from Netflix means that parents can simply press play anytime and anywhere, and the childs favourite characters will sing them a special birthday greeting – made just for them (or so they’ll think). Appropriately the Netflix Birthdays On-Demand launched in the world’s most common birth month of September and gives parents an easier way to make their kids’ birthdays special.
