Top ten kids’ movies of all time

1 Beauty and the Beast (1991)
The first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award, we’re still in love with this Golden Age classic. We won’t even talk about how the Celine Dion soundtrack has captured hearts, but the story alone is as intriguing as can be.

2 Coco (2017)
The story of Miguel is a warm one that’s all about family, so don’t be scared of all the skeletons. You’ll have a good cry and the kids will sing and dance with the very lovable Coco, too.

3 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982)
This out-of-this-world tale captures childhood at its best. Steven Spielberg tugs those heartstrings without going for the usual, cliché tear-jerking moments – so there’s actually substance to this one.

4 Finding Nemo (2003)
The lengths to which parents will go for their kids – this is one very relatable film. Pixar’s vibrant underwater movie fulfils the need for a light watch that will keep little ones entertained.

5 Frozen (2013)
We don’t need to explain this one – do we? Queen Elsa and her sister Anna may not be the most realistic, but the contrast between their personalities, and funny story that ends with a twist, makes this one to watch (again).

6 Harry Potter
We couldn’t pick just one, but the entire series makes us want to apply for Hogwarts. Yes, it does eventually get a bit scary for tiny ones, but you can pick and choose what part of the magical world you’d like for the kids to be a part of.

7 Mary Poppins (1964)
We think that the sequel, Mary Poppins Returns, has certainly managed to get kids interested in this magical story – yet again. However, there’s a special place in our heart for the original, which was created sans advanced graphics.

8 Moana (2016)
The beloved village princess takes to the sea to save her village, and her goals are to become way more than what they would allow for her to be. There’s lots to be learned from Moana, a story told with magnificient graphics and a super motivational soundtrack.

9 Sleeping Beauty (1959)
This film is pretty to watch and the soundtracks are so beautiful, they were still used for Maleficent 55 years later – albeit with a darker twist on the fairy tale. The original Sleeping Beauty is one the kids can watch over and over without getting bored – and so can we.

10 Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937)
Another Disney classic, this charming story follows the usual princess-in-distress plot, but has tonnes of messages on tolerance and acceptance for kids without it being too obvious. And those dwarfs, just adorable, we say. Just check on the kids as some parts may be a bit too creepy for them.
