  • my 2 yrd old LOVES this movie. All I can tell you is try and introduce her to different movies. My DD's favorites are Cars, Up, Monster vs. Aliens, and obviously coraline. Try and switch them out. I had to stop letting her watch the movies for a while because that is all she wanted to do. So some days i dont even turn on the TV for her to watch.

  • All my kids (2 to 7) love this movie... I've never tried to get them to not, so I'm no help.

    It's really, really normal for a 2yo to fixate on one movie or one book, and just want it repeated all the time. It's a phase, it helps them feel comfortable with the world. It passes, IME, so I usually just read the stupid book over and over, and let them watch the movie as much as they like... and eventually they simply don't need that kind of insane repetition anymore. :-)
