I'm thinking about Christmas and what to get for my children. I like to buy a couple of DVD's, so I'm asking for suggestions.

These are a few of our family favourites:
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Oliver!
Annie
Elf
The Wizard of Oz
Mary Poppins
The Sound of Music
Hocus Pocus
A Christmas Carol
Ella Enchanted
Are we there yet?
Matilda
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Night at the Museum

I'm looking for non-animated films (although I might invest in Pinocchio and Monsters Inc while the 241 offer is still on).

Any other suggestions of family favourites?

Santa Clause The Movie (one with Dudley Moore as an elf)

How about The Railway Children? I also like Pete's Dragon it is part animated, but remember seeing it at school as a treat when I was about 9. Oh and there is Bedknobs and Broomsticks :teeth:

Bedknobs and Broomsticks is one of DH's favourite films. I had forgotten about Miracle on 34th Street. Might add that to the collection.

How about The Princess Bride (my dh loves this one) and also the Herbie movies. I used to love Herbie when I was little, in fact I have the dvd box set. :goodvibes

ETA - Nanny McPhee's another good one.

My favourite Christmas film is The Polar Express.

I love that film. It reminds me of when I realised Santa wasn't real but wished I hadn't.

I don't know how old your kids are but when I was a kid I loved the Pippi Longstocking film (the non-animated one). I also loved Edward Scissorhands and the Addams Family films.
