Netflix Goes Retro #TBT {with Giveaway!}

Netflix Goes Retro #TBT - Toddling Around Chicagoland
Netflix Stream Team disclosure

It’s almost Thursday and you know what that means: “Throwback Thursday”. Your Facebook or Instagram feed will likely be filled with some great/embarrassing photos of friends and family members from the “olden” days.

In honor of #TBT I’m gonna share some old photos. First, one of me as a toddler:

Young Sarah - Toddling Around Chicagoland

And this one is a mystery photo collage. John, Cooper, Dexter, and Campbell are all here, but who is who?? (You can see photos of everyone on the About Us page.) Comment below if you want to guess!

Netflix is doing a bit of the throwback thing too, offering lots of classic sitcoms and cartoons on streaming.

My kids are fans of the cartoon classics – Curious George and Strawberry Shortcake especially. They love them!

The other day I suggested some classic Sesame Street episodes for Dexter and Campbell. When I told Dexter (age 4) that these were the Sesame Street shows I watched when I was a kid (okay, they were technically a little before my time, but I saw them in reruns when I was a kid) he said, “Ugh. So they’re in black and white?!” Yeah, thanks kid!

I’m looking forward to introducing them to Family Ties when they’re a little older because it was one of my favorite shows as a kid.

If you’ve got tweens they’ll probably love these classics:
