3D movies for a 3 yr old?

My husband wants to go to Toy Story 3 in 3D today with the kids. I'm just unsure how my son will take it. He sits nice for movies, and he loves to wear his sunglasses everywhere, so I'm not concerned about that aspect. I'm just curious as to how he'll take the pictures coming out at him. Anyone else taken their 3 yr old to a 3D movie? I'm looking more for people with experience, then a hypothesis.

  • We went to Toy Story 3 this week and saw LOTS of 2,3 and 4 year olds. They had a blast. Guess it would depend on your child but I'd take him. The other children sitting by us were laughing and had a great time.

  • in my opinion for a 3y/o it adds an interesting and exciting element and holds their attention MORE. It's an added layer of cool fun you don't get at home. It's worth the few extra dollars to me, esp since at 3 they actually retain most memories of cool stuff like that. At ages 2-4 my kids saw almost all of the 3D movies that came out, always went crazy for 'em. More so than the 2d ones where u can space out, look around, get possibly bored/tired. you dont wanna take your eyes off the screen w/ a 3d

  • My 3 year old didn't really like seeing how to train your dragon in 3d, but it was her first movie theatre expirence and the glasses were too big so she couldn't keep them on.
