    Since there's no real structure here and I need some help, thought I'd toss it up in the Packer Forum :p (psst i know it'll get moved, jus like busting ya balls PF.com Staffees heh)


    To the point!

    I now have primary placement of Keiana and well movies like The Crow, Saw III, The Count of Monte Cristo and such just don't suit the interest (nor do I care to allow her to view them) of a six year old.

    I'm sure many of you here have children. What are some good kid movies?

    Big fan of "The Exorcist"

    Really, any classic Disney flick.

    One that is good and I have always liked is Fern Gully....Robin Williams is the voice of a bat...

    Aladian with Robin Williams as the voice of the Genie.

    Lion king is always good ( after all these years just found out I still know lot of the lines)

    A bit older movie but my kids (1, 2, and 4) would sit for hours watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang or Care Bear movies. The past couple of days, we must have watched the same episode of The Big Comfy Couch at least 20 times.

    Are the "Electric Company" or "Zoom" on DVD?

    A little blast from the past!

    I think the only one that was "busting" was mine. Sorry, you know me......always thinking of a joke!
    Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was one of my favorites when i was a kid.
    Mary Poppins too. They both starred Dick VanDyke, and are great kid movies.
    "Oliver" is another classic! I actually just bought it on DVD.
    These arn't "busting" ones Zero, they are for real good kid movies.
    Sorry i joked in this thread, i didn't mean to mess you up.

    Oh....and the "Ice Age" ones are recent movies, and even though they are intended more for kids, I saw both of them and enjoyed them!
    "Shrek" one and two were good also. I haven't seen the third one yet.

    Oh! I just thought of another one that I LOVED that is great for kids AND grownups!
    "Wallace and Grommit, the curse of the wear-rabbit"
    I saw it in the theater, and bought the DVD when it came out. It's all made frame by frame in claymation, and was excellent! And NOTHING bad for kids!
    I'm not busting Zero, a GREAT film that i think you would get a kick out of too!

    I have another suggestion.

    Forget the movie.

    Give your kid a book. Read it with your child. Your child will have his or her own movie that will be directed by your own child's imagination.

    There is not one Hollywood Director that could do a better job than your own child's imagination while reading or being read to.

    "Miss a meal if you have to, but never miss a book."

    RP is right, I have read my kids all the harry potter books, cept the last one..

    I also have read poems that were wrote from a little boy..

    Switch off every other day or something, read, then watch..

    But sometimes its nice to just sit and watch a movie with your kid

    I have tons of books already lined up to read to her :) I'm extremely excited too!

    See back when I was her age, five-six years old my dad would read this book about a boy and a tree. The boy eventually grew up and used every resource on that tree until it was nothing more than a stump.

    Well, I've been looking for that book for years. Whenever I'd hear a childrens book author name id google the crap out of it trying to find that book with a green cover.

    Today, TODAY. On Mancow they said the name "Shel Silverstein" and kids books. I got to work and immediately googled it. Amazingly I finally found it. The book is called "The Giving Tree"

    I can't wait to get it and read it to her. It was my all time favorite book as a itty bitty youngster and as i got older "Where The Red Fern Grows" was a close second.


    So yes books are in the picture. Odd that you mention that on the day after 3 plus years of searching for the book I finally found it.

    Disney's Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid were really good movies. I took my son to see Bridge to Terabithia last year and that really shouldn't be a kid's movie because one of the main characters dies. It was pretty disturbing for a kid's movie. A good movie though for what it was.

    Most kids movies are complete crap though, so definitely do your research.

    My gosh, great idea! I should have listed some books instead of movies.

    I read all seven books of the Narnia series to my son. He loved them. I also read Treasure Island (the old classic) and he loved that one too. I don't know what to read a girl though. I got Princess Bride here collecting dust, and I should really crack it open and read it instead of drinking coffee and surfing the internet.
