It’s never too early to instil a love of cinema in the lil’uns. Sure, expecting a toddler to keep still for an entire movie is a bit foolish. But that doesn’t mean there’s no use in trying. For one thing, moving images should stop even the most hyperactive youngster from running into the walls and flushing keys down the toilet long enough for parents to catch their breath. And if you land on the right moving images, your child could find their first favourite film – a true milestone.
Of course, picking the right movie for a toddler is a delicate dance. You don’t want to simply hypnotise them with bright colours and loud noises, but you also don’t want to present them with anything more complex than the rhyming books they read at bedtime. These 15 movies, though, should do the trick.
