Movie recommendations - 4 year old
My daughter is 4 and I have piles of laundry to fold today. All I've got is Netflix. We've never watched a movie together. Any recommendations for a gentle, fun movie for us to watch today?

I like Kipper. One episode Pig says dumb bird, but I think they are quiet, relaxing shows. All my kids like Kipper. It makes me want to sleep. My kids don't watch tv much and only some movies. Just my opinion though. :)

We love Kipper! I was hoping for a movie though.

What do you mean by gentle, how gentle? There are Winnie the Pooh movies on netflix. Most Disney movies have some sort of drama in them so those would kind of depend on gentle your looking for. Cinderella is pretty tame (other than being treated like a slave, but its not really bad). Toy Story has a kid that really destroys his toys, gets a little scary when Andy's toys get stuck in his house. Thats the only scary part- its not that scary either, but not sure what your looking for.
Maybe It Takes Two. Its not a cartoon and other than one of the girls (the Olsen twins when they were still young) being in foster care its pretty rosy and quite cute. Its one of my favorites.

We don't have netflix so I have no idea what is available on there.

Some of dd2s favorite movies are:
Strawberry Shortcake
Barbie - Princess and the Pauper is a fav. But they all are pretty decent.
Pete's Dragon

Care Bears is great. My almost 4 yr old LOVES the Care Bears movie.

Also, there are a few Dreamworks Shorts sets, things like How to Train Your Dragon or Puss in Boots, but they are the short stories, the extras like Halloween stories etc. They aren't quite movie length, but they are great if you are dealing with a shorter attention span.

For us, we are having a Dinosaur Train marathon lol

All aboard! I'll dig around for Stuart Little. My daughter likes Redwall, but it's too scary for her. But she likes it too. She's torn. Stuart Little sounds more gentle mouse-wise, I hope.
