HAVE A LITTLE one who doesn’t want to miss out on New Year celebrations, but realistically won’t make it to midnight?

Netflix is here to help.

This year, the video streaming service is stepping up to help parents trick their children into thinking it’s midnight with an on-demand countdown hosted by King Julien of the animated series All Hail King Julien.

The three-minute New Year extravaganza features the animated lemur counting down to midnight and enables families to celebrate New Year as early or as late as they like – depending on how easily tricked your child is.

It features bright colours, party music and is virtually guaranteed to make your child feel like he/she is in on the fun.

The countdown is live and available to view here.
