You might believe that when you have kids you can just pop them down in front of the telly and leave them to enjoy a film while you get some much needed jobs around the house done or start answering a few emails. Not so: your little ones will expect you to sit and watch them too. Here are ten films you might not have expected to watch ever again, but will get to enjoy once you have children:
You might want to bellow at the next person who asks if you want to ‘build a snowman’ or belts out that ‘let it go’ song but expect to watch Frozen and be subjected to talking snowmen, reindeers and the power of love. And the worst thing is, you’ll enjoy every minute of it.
Plus if that’s not enough your kids will want to dress up like Elsa or Olaf and have you spending hours on the LamaLoLi website looking for Frozen-themed clothing for their birthdays and Christmases for years to come.
Peppa Pig: The Golden Boots
You should probably try and avoid Peppa Pig like the plague, the little piglet is actually a very naughty one that is just generally disobedient. However, if your kids discover her you’ll be watching this hour-long episode extravaganza, recently released in 2015, over and over.
The Sound of Music
You undoubtedly haven’t watched this musical classic since you were very young, but don’t expect to stop singing about female deer and drops of golden sun for weeks after watching it with your kids.
Try to refuse your kids spaghetti and maple syrup after watching Elf. Just try it. However, you’ll soon realise once the credits roll what a feel-good Christmas film it is, and one that should probably be enjoyed all year round.
A Harry Potter marathon will be on the cards in the future, perhaps when your children are around the age of 9 or 10 – Lord Voldemort can be pretty terrifying for little ones!
The Land Before Time
Released in 1988, you probably saw the Land Before Time as a child and thought you’d never see it again but now you have kids, you can relive the tale of Little Foot, Ducky, Spike, Petri and Cera as they try to reach the Great Valley.
The LEGO Movie
You might not have seen the Lego movie yet but it’s definitely a film that everyone can enjoy: it’s so good it won a BAFTA in 2015. Your kids will love the animation but
