Silly question, but I was keen to get a few Christmas DVDs this year (already have the snowman and father christmas) but would rather save buy some other stuff my money if I can just sky+ them. Looking for ones suitable for a 3.9 year old.

Same time it looks like the DVDs will get more expensive the closer to Christmas so thinking I should get them now if I'm going to.

Thanks

Often have cheap Christmas ones in the supermarkets

I've seen a few in the mcolls near us that are well priced from 2.99 to five pound.

There will be loads on in December, even on normal tv, I wouldn't bother buying them. Having said that ill be buying Arthur Christmas this year, unless its on sky.

That's what I was thinking that they'll be plenty on the tv just wasn't sure about for the younger kids. They're still fairly cheap on amazon, but still getting a few will tot up and I'm struggling to narrow it down to 2 or 3 which is partly why I'm thinking to just not bother!! smile

The ones in mcolls have a selection of a cartoon characters in Christmas episodesif that helps rather than long films.

I think they usually create a whole Christmas movie channel!

Habs and b and m sometimes also have christmas dvds as do the works, christmas channel sounds good though im sure she will find a firm favourite that she watches again and again.

I was looking at the muppets, mickey mouse ones and polar express, but there is far too many to choose from!!

There is also something a bit more exciting about receiving a DVD rather than just putting on the tv as well!!

Yep, there's normally a Christmas channel (or is it two?)

That digitalspy link is from 2010!

Movies 24 turned to Christmas 24 this morning, so they're showing nothing but Christmas films for the next two months, but to be honest there's never anything that interesting on it. It's all low budget, made-for-tv stuff that you'd never see on any other channel!

I bought Elf, Santa Claus The Movie, Miracle on 34th Street, The Santa Clause 1, 2 and 3 and Home Alone 1 and 2 all for between £1-2 each a couple of weeks ago on Ebay grin
So we're already to go.
