Kids can count down to 2016 whenever, thanks to Netflix. (Netflix)

Do you wish you could spend New Year’s Eve with your kids — and then with your partying adult friends? Netflix has a solution.

It has developed a series of New Year’s Eve countdowns that can be played for kids at whatever time parents want, according to a press release.

Are the kids supposed to be in bed by 9 p.m.? Well, that’s just as good as midnight with these new videos, if you don’t mind tricking your little ones a bit.

Kids can choose their favorite New Year’s Eve countdown hosts from a selection of their favorite cartoon characters. They include characters from “Care Bears & Cousins,” “Inspector Gadget,” and “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” among many others.

“And we won’t tell them it’s not midnight if you don’t,” the countdowns’ trailer promises.
