Does anyone have any movies with good messages for kids this age, that aren't live action (because my kids won't watch anything live action yet)?
Thanks in advance!
I know you said they don't watch live action yet, but have you tried classic musicals like Mary Poppins, Sound of Music, Annie? My girls love those--and when my DD#2 wasn't even 2 yet, she'd be belting out the tunes to those. Something about good music makes it different for them.
They also like Pippi Longstocking, 1988.
Totally. Last summer, my then 2 year was obsessed with musicals, especially Mary Poppins and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
My Kids are the exact same age. I have a boy 4 and girl almost 2. When we have movie night with our 4 year old (and soon when our daughter turns 2), we use http://www.commonsensemedia.org It is a great site that gives ratings on most movies tv video games and book. It has detailed brakedown and grading of each type of media. Keep in mind that a 2/4 year old has no way to determine if something is real or fake. They do not gain that skill 'till about 7 years old. So if you want to keep monsters out of the closet and nightmares at bay, I think the site gives a great guide to help finding the right movie. Some of our favorites at a young age are Elmo in grouch land, Winnie the pooh There are some Pooh movies that have scary moments so read the review, but most are good for the young ones, Toy story 2, Milo and Otis(skip the birth scene), Blue's big music show... Check out the site. You will find something you like there. :)
