I know there is no shortage of kid’s movies or television shows these days. I love the positive messages and diversity that shows and movies promote to kids today. Yet, there is something special about sharing favorites from your childhood with your own children, whether it be movies, characters, or books.
I am excited to share the following childhood favorites with my daughter as she gets older:
- The Lion King – Need I say more? Every kid who grew up in the 90’s has a special place in their hearts for Simba—and this movie.
- Scooby Doo – I’m talking about the old TV show, not the live action movies. I was infatuated (and terrified!) by the corny monsters they chased. Who can resist the antics of Scooby and Shaggy? No one, that’s who.
- The Aristocats – My sassy little girl reminds me so much of Marie that I have no doubt she will love this toe tapping movie as much as I do.
- Chip & Dale: Rescue Rangers – She already loves Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so I think these spunky little chipmunks will definitely pique her interest.
- The Original Disney Princesses – My little one already loves the live action version of Cinderella and Maleficent. With more live action tales being produced in the upcoming years, I’m sure she will love those, too. However, I want to make sure she’s intoduced to the originals—the classics, if you will.
- The Mighty Ducks – More specifically, D2: The Mighty Ducks. Our little one is already hockey obsessed. On a regular basis, she breaks out in raucous chants of, “Let’s go, Preds!” So I’m certain this hockey favorite will become a favorite of hers, too.
