Favorite Shows For Kids - Page 2

post #21 of 26

Another discovery:  Lassie Come Home!  We had a family movie night on the 4th (4.5 yr old twins wanted to stay up for fireworks--which is waaaaay late for them).  We all really enjoyed it!  There is gentle suspense (relative to Disney or some others).  Three scenes I remember being lightly scary (we were sitting with the children the whole time):

- Two hobos trying to rob a kind travelling salesman by attacking him with long sticks and also hitting (and killing his little dog).  The girls handled this well, although when I write it here, it sounds gruesome--handled well in the movie, frankly.  Lots of family discussion about good and evil ensued...

- Two hunters trying to protect a flock of sheep shoot at Lassie.  Their dog goes in for the attack, Lassie wins. 

- Dog catchers chase Lassie, Lassie springs from a window of a building, is seen lying on the ground, injured, hobbles off.

I think I also liked the movie because it was so old school--simply made, not over the top. 

 

Dialect can be difficult to understand.

My 2yo LOVES Word World! Also, we are big Jim Henson fans. Fraggle Rock and the Storyteller series are our top faves.

Recently we have been enjoying Shaun the Sheep (from the Wallace and Grommet folks).

Shaun the Sheep is AWESOME!  Very cute...the animation, the music, the humor....all clever. The only downside is you won't get the theme song out of your head for a while.

 

(BTW you can get Shaun The Sheep DVDs at the library.)
