Calling all Netflix users!

Today, the awesome streaming service released a new feature for users worldwide. It's called Birthdays On-Demand and it includes 15 new short videos of your kids' favourite TV characters singing Happy Birthday. Gone are the days where you have to sing it yourself—let's be real, your kid would much rather have Pokémon or Barbie and Ken sing to them, anyways.

Here's how to use this awesome new feature: Open your app and search "birthday songs" or go online and type in to choose your video from the list. Then all you'll have to do is press play.

Even though it's not a custom video where the characters sing your kid's name, the birthday boy or girl will feel like it's a special message just for them. You can choose characters from the shows below:

-Barbie -Pokémon -My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic -LEGO Ninjago -Project Mc2 -Skylanders Academy -LEGO Friends -Luna Petunia -Beat Bugs -Dinotrux -Las Leyendas -All Hail King Julien -Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir -Trollhunters -Word Party

Watch their promo video below:

We just have one question...when will this feature be available for adults? We wouldn't mind some doctors from Grey's Anatomy or John Krasinski from The Office singing us "Happy Birthday." Hint hint, Netflix!
