    Dd1 was about 2.5yo when she would sit still long enough for a movie. Dd2 is 3.5yo and still can't sit still to watch a movie. But she will play quietly with her dolls or puzzles whilst the movie is playing.

    Exactly the same with my two boys. Although DS2 has sat through 2 movies in the cinema and a third he started getting fidgety and wanting to fun around because it bored him (to be fair the movie was Peanuts and it bored me too😂)

    I think it's a personality thing. My DD got Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella for Xmas and she is OBSESSED! She will happily watch either one in one sitting. She's 2 years 7 months. It's funny though, whilst you're trying to get your DD to sit and watch I'm usually trying to get my DD to stop nagging me to watch them and go do something else!

    Oh you have reminded me that DSD went through a HUGE (seriously it was insane) Cinderella phase at 3, and would have watched the Disney movie all day with no problem.

    Other than that, she has never sat for a full movie- even at the cinema!

    2.5 for DS1. But it's hit and miss. Depends on his mood, and also how interested he is in the movie. He is obsessed with toy story.

    I have friends whose kids have watched a whole Disney movie from the age of one. And some who watch ten minutes at 3 or 4 yrs.

    Dd is 7 and wont sit down to watch a whole movie, but put on youtube and she'll be happy all day. She has always struggled with concentration. Ds2 is 5 and can watch a whole movie if it interests him, but he still prefers to play. Ds1 is 11 and is severely disabled and loves watching movies. Especially if they've got funny voices like Alvin and the Chipmunks.

    Default What age did your kids watch movies?

    My DD is 2 and she will sit and watch an entire movie if it's something she's enjoying (frozen, minions, Cinderella etc). Otherwise she'll watch for a little and then play for a bit then watch some more. (If it helps I find that she likes to sit and watch while I do her nails or if she has popcorn etc lol). She won't sit for an entire movie at the cinema though.

    We took my DD to the movies for the first time when Minions came out and she sat through the entire thing! She was just turned 2. I expected to have to bring her outside and leave DS and DH to continue watching but she surprised me.
    She'll sit at home and watch frozen or something too. But isn't interested in everything so those which don't hold her attention she won't sit through

    My DD was nearly 3.5 when we went and saw Lion King at the movies (our cinema was showing old Disney movies). She'd seen it before so she sat through it.
