One of the very best of Netflix's increasingly Hallmark-rivaling roster of live-action holiday originals, this musical tale of a jaded toymaker given another shot at magic is a visual feast of splashy special effects, eye-popping choreography and seasonally appropriate sentimentality. Rated TV-PG.
We know what you’re thinking: ‘Best kids Christmas movies? Aren’t all Christmas movies basically for kids?’ Oh sure, plenty are. But assuming every film with a yuletide theme is good for the young ones is where parents can get in trouble. You may end up streaming a movie where Santa Claus is a serial killer, or a Hallmark romcom that’ll bore them into a stupor, or something like Edward Scissorhands that’s going to leave them asking a lot of uncomfortable questions.
So, no, the phrase ‘Christmas movies for kids’ is not as redundant as it might sound. And clearly, picking the right movie to get the smallest members of the household into the holiday spirit requires both care and wisdom. These 25 movies, though, are like hot cocoa for the wee ones’ souls. Want to get on your child’s nice list? Stream one of these, and your stocking will runneth over.
