"My Neighbour Totoro - my brother bought it for my girls and they still love it now. It's a real fantasy adventure and a really happy film."


"My son loved animals when he was really little - especially The Adventures of Milo and Otis."


"Curious George. Lovely, lovely film. Perfect for teenies and grown-ups. It is funny, but doesn't have that level of 'adult humour' hidden in it like a lot of other kids' films do."


"Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were Rabbit, and all the Wallace and Gromit short films (Wrong Trousers etc). They're so good that we can watch them over and over - fabulous animation, and we notice new things every time."


"Aristocats - it's the only film our three-year-old has watched in full. It's about an hour long - she loves it and isn't scared by it at all."


"The first full movie our son watched was Kung Fu Panda - he was entranced."


"My son loves Ponyo, which has a very gentle storyline and seems to be utterly compelling to toddlers. My friend's son would even watch it in Japanese without complaining!"


"Mary Poppins was a big hit with my toddler."


"Rio is a good one. My two-year-old loves it - very colourful, and a few catchy songs."


"Wall-E is brilliant - very sweet and keeps my two boys entertained."
