Need Ideas--good Movies for 3Yr Old

Hey Moms! My son is turning 3 in July and I'm wanting to get him some new movies. He's outgrown all the Baby Einstein stuff (except he loves the Little Einsteins movie) and I'm really wanting to get him some new stuff--either educational or just for pure entertainment. We're going on a long car trip in August so I really want some DVD's he'll enjoy in the car. He scares easily so I'm looking for stuff that's not scary. He has Finding Nemo and loves it...I just have to fast forward the scary parts for him. So...any ideas?

What can I do next?

Anything Dora (including her movie), Diego or Bob the Builder related. As strange as it sounds, my kids adored Monsters, Inc. and Care Bears Movies.

As for educational, Sesame Street has awesome videos, especially the video cookbook and LeapFrog's Phonics factory entertains all my older kids (2-7 years).

Laurie Berkner DVD is great went on a 12 hour trip and we watched it the whole time even kept my little one 13 months at the time(16 months now)entertained. The songs didnt even get on our nerves(mom and dad). Dora and Diego, Sesame Street DVD are also good. My daughters also like Max and Ruby. These are short shows that they've seen on Nick Jr but they seemed to like them. They also like Ice Age but you might want to try it out first at home, Monsters Inc they are afraid of but not Ice Age.(I just dont get that one)

Toy Story 2 is really good for that age group!

I have a 23 month old who absolutely LOVES Toy Story I and II. He also really digs the Wiggles live DVD as well as Pooh's Heffalump Movie. He didn't really care for Robin Hood but does LOOOOOOVE all the Veggie Tales stuff he's received as gifts (Esp, Lord of the Beans). Also... if yours likes Elmo... any of the Elmo DVD's are great... :) And educational too! Good luck!

My son is 2 1/2 and loves both Toy Story 1 and 2. We watch it everyday and have been for over 6 months. He cant get enough of it. He has tons of other movies but he always wants to watch it. He also likes, Madagascar and A Bugs Life. They all have some scary parts but once he watched them and I comforted him he was fine. He will watch Bob the Builder, Blues Clues, and ELMO movies but only for about 30 minutes. I just bought a ton of new movies on e-Bay. Its a cheaper way to buy theme in bulk. Also, go to the library and check them out. You wont have to waste money on something he wont watch again. Weve been going to the Flower Mound Library.
Anyway, have fun on your trip and good luck,
TLee

Aristocats...it's an older Disney movie...and I think they may not be selling it now, but you can find it at Half Price or even try renting it first. My son LOVES it!!!

Try www.cleanflicks.com ! They edit tons of movies, I'm not sure how much editing a Disney movie would need, but you can always ask them, their customer service is pretty quick. Plus, they'll give you lots of ideas.

My son is almost four and he adores The Backyardigans. He watches them over, and over, and over. It really helps him with his imagination. You should definately give it a shot. The 13 month old will probably enjoy it too.
