Trollhunters on Netflix began streaming today! Season 1 is available just in time to entertain the kids, with visual storytelling and deep mythology, over winter break. From the geniusly creative mind of Guillermo del Toro, along with the voices of Kelsey Grammer, Ron Pearlman, Steve Yeun, and Anton Yelchin, Trollhunters tells the tale of two worlds set to collide.
When ordinary teenager Jim Lake Jr. stumbles upon a mystical amulet on his way to school one morning, he inadvertently discovers an extraordinary secret civilization of mighty trolls beneath his small town of Arcadia. Strong-willed and seeking adventure but wholly unprepared for the responsibilities thrust upon him, Jim is forced to take on the exalted mantle of Trollhunter, sworn to protect the good trolls from powerful enemies bent on revenge. The first human ever to hold the honor, Jim abruptly goes from fighting his way through the daily mayhem of high school to joining a war that has raged for centuries, a conflict that now threatens all of mankind and troll-kind alike. Accompanied by his closest human friends and a few key troll allies, the courageous fifteen-year-old must plunge headlong into a fantastical world of astonishing creatures, glorious cities, and fierce enemies desperate to destroy him. Suddenly destined to play a crucial role in an ancient battle of good and evil with stakes that couldn’t be higher, Jim is determined to save the world — right after gym class.

I see a day full of binge-watching and baking in store, don’t you?! It’s cold and a bit snowy in Iowa today, making it a great day for some family Netflix time cuddled up on the couch. What makes it even more fun, is this printable DIY Battle Armor & Sword so you can recreate your favorite scenes in the living room. 😀
How about a little Trollhunters Rock Candy to enjoy while watching all 26 episodes that are streaming on Netflix?! I’m only missing on ingredient, and it’s probably something most people have at home, so this is a super simple recipe. If you are planning a Trollhunters Party in the future, these would be great tied up in a clear bag for party treats! 😉
No matter how you watch it or what you eat while watching, Trollhunters is a family-friendly show on Netflix that I encourage you to check out. Fantastic animation, interesting storyline, and makes for fun conversations with the kids, which is one of my favorite parts about it all!
