View Full Version : kids movies
i wanna start buying my bubs some kiddie movies and was just wondering wat are ur kids (or urs if u love cartoons like me) fav movies ??
any help would be great :kiss:
My little one loves the shows on Nick Jr (Foxtel). Blues Clues and Dora the Explorer are his faves. I tried some animated movies but he still cries if they are even slightly violent.:o
Dora the Explorer is fantasic!! All for kids LOVE it. One of Charli's first words was Dora...she even sings - 'D-D-Dora'. Very educational, my son ven says some of the spanish words now and I have no idea til I go and watch it.
There are 3 Dora DVDs out atm, they're about $11 at K-Mart.
You can't go wrong with the wiggles. The Wiggles Movie is a good one and so are the live concert ones, great for burning energy when they're dancing along.
Hi-5 are prety good too, that's educational.
Ummm what else...
Actual movies that our kids like include:
Lilo and stitch
A Bugs life
TOY STORY - This is played virtually nonstop!!!
DS1 has taken to loony tunes...
Vallerie loved Elmo when she was really small. And Bear in the Big Blue House. And Banana's in Pajama's.
Now she loves real movies too, Madagascar is a firm favourite, The Land Before Time movies (grrrrr I don't like them, too sugary and cheesy for me but she loves them) and of course Shrek, and Nemo. :D
My DD loves Sesame Street DVD's & Playschool live in concert,as for movies she has Milo & Ottis, most of the movie is the dog and cat & she loves animals:)
I hope this isn't off track but I have to share this. We must be really aware of what our children are exposed to in the form of TV, movies etc... Children don't develop the ability to differentiate between reality and fantasy until they are beyond 7 years of age. If they are exposed to movies beyond their ability to rationalise it can have really awful effects on them. Bad dreams being the most common. Bad dreams are usually made up of scary images that they have seen on the television and small children have no way to understand what all this means. Movies such as Harry Potter are in fact only suitable to those beyond 9 years of age. Lord of the rings (which I love) is not suitable for any child! If you can avoid having your children watch grownup stuff, you are doing them a great service-and you will see the differnce between your children and those watching rubbish, especially when they play pretend.
This isn't an attack on parents just a few ideas to help keep your children in the realm of childhood.
My DD also loves Sesame St and Playschool. She loves Elmo!! She is just starting to get into the Wiggles.
Ethan loves hi-5,,blues clues, bear in the big blue house...most nick jr shows...oh n the wiggles.
