    Default Quick replies needed - good DVDs to hire for sick 2.5yo

    DD is at home from daycare with a cold or flu-type lurgy and as she was running a fever last night, I'm keen to keep her inside and try to get her to rest as much as possible. The best idea I could come up with was to go to Blockbuster and hire some kids' DVDs, make some popcorn and sit on the couch with her but I don't know what DVDs to hire - any suggestions?

    My DD is 3 but this is what we watch to death and she loves (and loves even more if she's sick):
    Toy Story
    The Smurfs
    Tangled
    My Little Pony
    Dora (eugh, hate sitting through this one!)
    movies about Christmas & Puppies

    Hope she feels better soon too.

    OMG, I think I'm going to shoot myself if I have to sit through all this!

    Thanks girls - they're exactly the kind of suggestions I was looking for...sadly! Why can't DD appreciate a nice, trashy rom-com yet? That's what I feel like watching whenever I'm under the weather.

    For my 2 yr old neice, I bought old school Minnie and Mickey mouse the things we watched on sunday afternoons and I'm talking before Mickey mouse clubhouse which is an absolute bore and she absolutely loves it to the point that she even collects the soft toys lmao. The old stuff is the best.

    Hey, I love this one! I actually tried to get her to watch this with me last week - and she did, for a while...I love all the Hayao Miyazaki films and figured this one was the least scary for her (though she didn't like Ponyo's father). DD even looks a bit like Ponyo, bless.
