We asked our kids what they're watching and playing.

Ages 2–4

Cars and Cars 2

PG | (2016 & 2011)

Pixar's animated road-comedy franchise follows the adventures of aspiring champion race car Lightning McQueen and his best friend Mater the tow truck, first in the rundown desert town of Radiator Springs and then at the World Grand Prix.

Movie car make a bumpy road, make a road, yah.

Rudy, aged 2

The Princess and the Frog

G | (2009)

A waitress, desperate to fulfill her dreams as a restaurant owner, is set on a journey to turn a frog prince back into a human being, but she has to face the same problem after she kisses him.

I like the frogs... The Shadow Man is a mean beanie.

Kit, aged 3

Ages 5–10


G | (2019)

A magical Yeti returns to his family in an epic 2,000-mile adventure from the streets of Shanghai to breathtaking Himalayan snowscapes.

It's like a snowman but not a scary one, he looks cute and the movie looks really funny. I like how real the characters look.

Myles, aged 6



The 27th installment of this videogame series brings two sides of The World’s Game to life – the prestige of the professional stage and an all-new authentic street football experience. Set to be released on 27 September 2019.

The game I can't wait to play is FIFA 20 which is out this week. I play FIFA 19 now and the changes are the fixtures are different, penalties, tackling, movement, player faces and updates. It's one of my favourite games.

Dylan, aged 9



We'd be surprised if the Minecraft craze hasn't reached your family yet. This best-selling videogame immerses kids in creative thinking, geometry, and even a little geology as they build imaginative block structures. 

I’m going to tame a cat army in Minecraft with my best friend.

Violet, aged 9

Ages 11–15

PewDiePie’s Tuber Simulator

Rated 9+

This mobile game lets you follow in the footsteps of one of the biggest internet stars, PewDiePie, by creating your very own pocket Tuber (YouTube personality). Still not sure what it is? Neither are we... but Nate seems to know.

I like uploading videos to create the coolest room ever!

Nate, aged 11


MA15+ | (2015–)

This television series based on characters created by Neil Gaiman revolves around Lucifer Morningstar, the Devil, who abandons Hell for Los Angeles where he runs his own nightclub and becomes a consultant to the LAPD.

I like the engaging story of Lucifer and how there are many twists of betrayal and unloyalty [sic] as well as the misunderstandings of each character.

Marley, aged 15
