I still enjoy watching my Shirley Temple films. This past weekend I also watched “A Little Princess” & “The Secret Garden”. I RARELY break these movies out, but it was just one of those weekends.
What are your favorite kids movies?

I watched a lot of Shirley Temple movies b/c my grandmother loved them. I also like The Secret Garden.
However, I have to say my favorite children’s movies are Studio Ghibli–Hayou Miyazaki. I LOVE Kiki’s Delivery Service.

Im a sucker for a good cartoon. I love the older Disney movies (Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin) and I recently saw Princess and the Frog and loved that too. Haha. Also, movies like Fern Gully, Thumbelina, The Last Unicorn, Little Nemo. Ah! I’m in the process of building up my collection of these kinds of movies, because I’d rather my future kids watch them than some of the crap that’s on TV now.

My all time favorite is Disney’s Robin Hood, with the foxes! I watched my VHS so much as a kid that I had to buy another copy because I wore out the film. While I now have the DVD version, I still love watching it now and again!!

Loved Fern Gully, Land Before Time and the Lion King as a kid lol. I also watched the Shirley Temple movies too 🙂
For newer “kids” movies I love Ice Age and Wall-E…too cute!

Anything with a horse in it, I loved. Misty of Chincoteague, National Velvet, the Black Stallion…
I was also a huge Babysitter’s Club fan, so when the movie came out you can bet I saw it. A few times. Anyone remember the short-lived TV series as well?

@beekiss2: I love Miyazaki films! I love “My Neighbor Totoro”, “Howl’s Moving Castle and “Spirited Away”.
But my favorite childrens film would have to be Toy Story.

I LOVE all of the classic Disney movies (and I’m buying all of them on DVD/Blue-ray as they come “out of the Disney vault” so my future kids can enjoy them too). I also really liked Homeward Bound and the original Land Before Time.

My sisters and I loved Totoro and Disney! Apparently I watched the 1961 Babes in Toyland obsessively too. I think I was in love with Tom. Actually, now that I think about it, my fiance looks a lot like him… :O

@lilyfaith: LOVED the Babysitter’s Club!
@CorgiTales: Hocus Pocus was one of my favorites too!
Older movies include: The Little Mermaid, Fly Away Home, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and The Worst Witch.
My new favorite kids movie is Up. I cried and I laughed and I LOVED it.
