    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?

    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.

    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.
