  • At 18 months and that's because I work at a movie theater and we started Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs just for him. He sat all the way though Toy Story 3 this past summer at 2 though. He yelled at some man who got up, "Where are you going? It's Toy Story!"

  • DS was 3 and it didn't go very well. I thought it would be fun to see the 3D version but he didn't like wearing the glasses and about half way through he was totally bored so we left :(

    He's almost 5 now and we still haven't really gone back. I am going to wait until he asks to see a movie before we try again.

  • I'm surprised at all the moms who took their kids at 2 and 3! My daughter is no where near ready and she's going to be three in June. She's too hyper and would be talking and loud the whole time. We're going to be waiting a while. I guess it depends on the child :)
