Likes HSM 1/2/3, Madagascar, and then cbeebies and Tom & Jerry on tv.

Also loves Ninja Warriors, Takeshi's castle and Hole in the wall on tv.

So, can be very girly or very actiony. I'm a bit tired of watching the same things so am looking for inspiration. Has a youngler sibling too so need to be a bit careful.

Some of the Japanese anime Studio Ghibli ones are great with strong central female characters-my 4 yr old (boy) loves My neighbour Totoro and Kiki's delivery service. The golden oldie Disney films are great we especially love Peter Pan and the Jungle Book.

Scooby Doo. My 5 year old dd is obsessed and my 2 1/2 year old ds is pretty keen as well.

Thanks - we have been through scooby doo and out of the other side. We have the jungle book (my fave as a kid) but she doesnt seem to click with it.

I'll look into the others although I'm not sure i could bear alvin and the chipmunks!

the Japanese anime sounds interesting...

Second LadaG's recommendation for My Neighbour Totoro, Bought it recently for my 6 year old daughter, now one of her fav films also loved by her 8 year old sister.

Would she like old fashioned musicals like the Sound of Music, Doris Day films etc?

I think it is Disney but it is only semi-animated, Enchanted is great and you will enjoy it too! Also how about Night At the Museum, depending on how scared she might be by the T-Rex coming to life grin!

You got Toy Story?

Anything disney, the barbie films (they'll make you want to be ill but dd likes them), Chitty chitty bang bang

We dont have Toy Story acually so that could be an option.

I've added My Neighbour Totoro to my amazon basket.

I love Enchanted and she has watched it with me but hasnt asked to watch it again iyswim.

The Barbie films might be an option as we have Diamond Castle and she used to watch that a lot.

Off to google Homeward Bound...

Andre. You might have to order on line though, not in the shops I don't think, as it's quite old. It's lovely though.

Just wanted to say thanks for the recommendation of My neighbour totoro. DD loved it, although she (and I) did shed a tear at one point.
