Tuesday Toddler Tales
At 4 1/2 years old we finally started letting Emily watch Disney films (think the Classics you grew up with); she loved both "Bambi" and "Aladdin" is obsessed, begging to watch them on a daily basis! She liked "Pinnochio", mainly the scene's with Monstro the Whale but wasn't impressed with "Tinkerbell". Once "Dumbo", "Beauty and The Beast", "101 Dalmations" and "Cinderella" are returned we'll rent those.
Disney is a bit "dark" with very mature subject matter (poisoning, death, animal abuse) and often times includes some explicit language (Jiminey Cricket says "jackass" in "Pinnochio") so, we have been very selective with what we have allowed her to watch and we always watch movies with her. We were quite impressed with her grasp of the circle of life and her very matter-of-fact explanation of why the hunters shot the quail and Bambi's mother in "Bambi" and she was quite appauled when Pinnochio lied, which made his nose grow.
What are your kid's favorite Disney movies or do you have your own reasons for not showing them movies, Disney or otherwise?
