  • Thomas the tank engine is a huge hit in our house, and there are several differnt ones
    veggie tales is also a big hit

    We only usually watch a movie on friday nights, so that seems to make it eaiser to replay things. But I get what you mean, we've watch bolt the last 3 fridays in a row, and then the rest of the week my children have turned into yeah..

    They looooved go deiago go... I can only toleralt so much of that though.

  • Ooooooh! The Labyrinth. It's my sons favorite movie. He absolutely loves the singing and dancing in it. He also loves Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory,  Alice in Wonderland, What about The Muppets? Fraggle Rock? They may be older but most kids LOVE them.

  • I agree with the above poster (MizLee), go to some of the older Disney.
    Mine also liked all of the above, plus:
    Shark Tails
    Alvin and the chipmunks

    I am in the same boat here. I got Netflix and just watch it a few times a day (for a few days), then sent it back. Yah!! never have to buy the latest movie and never get tired of the same thing over and over again! So far I have loved it.
    PS. some local libraries let you check out movies, so it's free, just pick a few new ones and see what he likes. Maybe it is a perfect time to transition to a new phase or more "Big Boy" movies. Mine is into SpyKids I, II, III, Skyhigh, ben10, Jumagi, Charlie and the choc. factory, & Garfield
