One of the biggest problems I have with Netflix and kids is the lack of a way to restrict searches. I know I'm probably an over-protective parent, but even if you restrict an account to PG movies, all movies turn up in searches (and some rather interesting box covers that I don't want to explain).
The old Roku Player (not the new Roku 2) had the ability to roll back to the old Netflix UI, which only showed the queue, which was perfect for kids. (Thanks to Noor for noticing this).
