Friday Favorites 10/29

I'm switching it up just a little bit today for Friday Favorites.  I've got a list of things I'd like to share, but just wasn't feeling like they were quite right for today.  Maybe it's because I spent yesterday with a handful of kids.  Today's featured favorites are Children's Movies.  I've had so many discussions with my mom about what's on television now, and how much of it is not appropriate for little kids.  It's nice to know there are some things that you can always fall back on, that's both appropriate and that the kids will enjoy.

Which then brings me to Disney.  I've known people here and there who don't like Disney and think Disney is horrible, but I'm not one of them! :)  I love Disney!  Especially old Disney (non-animated) classics, like the ones with the young Kurt Russell or Dean Jones.

Anyway, today I just figured I'd share a few of my favorite Disney Classics (the animated features).

101 Dalmatians
The Little Mermaid
There's not a whole lot I want to say about these movies, other than my sister and I watched these over and over and over as kids.  Especially Sunday afternoons, after we'd come home from church, we'd pop in one of these 4 movies.  As you can probably imagine, we know all the words to all the songs and the entire film.  Literally.  Cinderella and Bambi were "my" movies.  I don't remember which I got first, but it's almost as though since they were my first 2 Disney movies, they would always be the best.  101 Dalmatians and The Little Mermaid were my sister's movies. They were her first movies as well.  And C LOVED Dalmatians, so that was a perfect fit. :) In any case, in my opinion, these are great movies for little kids.  Some might not think they stack up to the CGI films like Monsters Inc. or Ice Age, etc. but they're pretty great! :)

  1. I'm a huge Disney fan too! My favourites are Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, The Aristacats, Peter Pan, The Jungle Book, Pocahontas, and the second Lion King, among many others! I agree that today they're aren't as many good movies for children as these old classics. Sometimes when I'm feeling really down, I'll put one of these on and watch just to feel like a kid again :-)
