  • Something like Charlottes Web is a good movie.

  • Perhaps search children’s movie titles for ideas.

  • Any Pixar movie is likely to be a hit, and the classic Disney movies are still a big hit with my kids.

  • Frozen if a good children’s movie. Jumanji also, but it might be for slightly older children.

  • My daughter is 7 ,we love Ice Age,1,2,3&4,also we love Madagascar 1,2 &. 3.Also the house of magic.

  • Postman pat the movie, cars, planes, the bee movie, Winnie the pooh, frozen, tangled etc :)

  • just about any Disney movie is always a winner. as well as dreamworks movies are really good.

  • Shrek is a great one for the kids and funny with the parent jokes, I always ending up watching it with my son.

  • My niece who is four loves anything Disney or Pixar. She will sit through the entire movie when she has a movie night. The princess and the frog seems to be the favourite. But if it was me you can’t go past bedknobs and broomsticks or Mary Poppins …. Classic!

  • Absolutely anything from Disney Pixar! They are all awesome movies and adults will love it too!

  • There are plenty of Disney movies. the most popular ones like toy story, cloudy with a chance of meatballs, finding nemo, cars, Planes, wreak it Ralph.
    Then there are older ones like Mighty Ducks (and sequels), Peter Pan/ Hook, cool runnings, mary poppins, honey I shrunk/blew up the kid, chitty chitty bang bang.
    Other movies include The Little Rascals, Dennis the Menace. There are so many…have fun

  • My children are 4 and under and are currently obsessed with watching Cars (or “the racing car movie” as they like to call it). They aren’t to fussed about Frozen (yep, they’re in the minority!): they know the characters but when asked if they want to watch it they generally pick something else (I.e, Cars lol).

    Alternatively, what about some of the movies you remember watching when you were a child? You can introduce them to the movies you used to enjoy when you were their age :) Some that I can remember (and loved when I was little. Heck, and still do!) are Fantasia, Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

  • Ice Age, The Lion King… Also movies like “Santa Buddies” “Space Buddies” “Snow Buddies”.. I find them very entertaining for small kids, with golden retrievers puppies…

  • My kids love the Ice age movies and the Toy story movies they also like the cats and dogs movie. They seem to get a good giggle out of them. My kids are between 2-6 years old.

  • Disney movies are always great (do not choose Into the Woods, that is the first Disney movie I would not suggest). However my kids and I just did a Rio marathon we watched Rio and Rio 2 on the same night, had fun. Also depends on where you get your movies from, buying them ask for suggestions from the retailer, they always have great ideas, if you borrow them from a rental store again ask at the counter for suggestions. Foxtel has suggestions based on what you like, or you can look in the kids and family section. Have fun.
