Netflix's instant selection isn't just limited to raunchy teen comedies and steamy adult dramas. The company also offers a "Just for Kids" section that includes content directed for children 12 and under. Not only is this section broken by genre (superheroes, princesses, dinosaurs and girl power), the Just for Kids section lets you browse by character. For example, you can find all of Netflix's content featuring Elmo, or Garfield.

Just for Kids will be available on Wii later today, making it the first console to offer the kid-friendly service.

According to Netflix, "Just for Kids" will also be available on other devices (presumably the PS3, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 3DS) "over the next year." For now, Nintendo gets first dibs on this family-friendly expansion.

Popular offerings currently available "Just for Kids" include Avatar: The Last Airbender, Toy Story 3, and Spongebob Squarepants.

          You should ban yourself for an hour for the lame troll.

          I use it fairly often to keep watching a show or movie when I step outside for a smoke.
