Listography - Top Five Kids Films

This week over at , KateTakes5
the listography is all about kids films. 

Tricky one this one as there are so many to choose from, mmm, ok here goes:

1. Toy Story

This has to be one of the greatest films ever made. When I first saw this I was amazed by the technology.  Also the story is fantastic, toys coming alive is every childs dream.

2. Wizard Of Oz

When I saw this film I fell in love with it and dreamt about going to Oz, I wanted to live in Munchkin land.  It also scared me half to death with the witch and the flying monkeys. 'I'll get you  my pretty!'  Need I say more?

3. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (original version)

Another film I went to bed dreaming of, well, the chocolate river and edible daffodils anyway.  The Oompah Loompahs were cute and the soundtrack great.  Oh and drinking lemonade that made you fly...brilliant

4. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Oh to have a flying car... And I wanted to grow up to look like Truly Scrumptious wearing beautiful white dresses.  A great story and another great soundtrack.

5. The Goonies

An all time classic. Thrills, adventures, baddies chasing the kids, pirates, gold doubloons and of course, Sloth.  'Hey you guys!'

P.S Can I add some more???

Ok, ALL the Harry Potter films!  Do you think in 50 years time they will remake them?  Hopefully not, they will be classics.


  1. Ahhh I forgot about The Goonies!!!

  2. I agree with the original Charlie and the chocolate factory. Much better. I could never understand why Charlie won the factory when he was naughty too and drunk the lemonade. That didn't seem fair to me as a child.

    I love Chitty chitty bang bang. Lullaby mountain is such a beautiful lullaby I always sing it to the girls. Shame I don't know all the words.

  3. Glad I'm not the only one that went for The Goonies, fantastic choices!

  4. Ohhh I watched "the sound of music" the other night. I'd include that in my top 5. LOVED Charlie and the chic factory and the Wizard of Oz.

  5. Great list! I'd forgotten The Goonies, too.

  6. The Goonies! That was a great film, I haven't seen it in years.

  7. Another great list of pure genius film making! and another film I haven't seen (yet)- The Goonies x

  8. Got two of those in mine - Chitty and Wizard. Great minds think alike.

  11. Great list! Love these movies and wish I could make my list much, much longer too!

  12. Oh love all of these! One of my boys has fallen for the Goonies too - I love it. Actually my 'littlest' looks like Chunk...
