The mere fact someone isn’t a kid anymore hardly means they can no longer enjoy entertainment made for children. If anything, the older a person is, the warmer and more nostalgic a kid’s movie can feel, bringing back memories of their own youthful experience. Not only that, but some kids movies, especially those made by Disney or Pixar, are just plain entertaining for people of all ages, as reflected at the box office.
One of the biggest selling points to children’s movies is that they almost always contain outrageously memorable characters and scenarios. The point is to create something even a developing mind could remember, and the side effect is that adults never forget parts of their favorite movies from childhood. This also means parents raising young children can find themselves attached to the fun happening on screen, sometimes not even minding when the young one begs to watch the same flick over and over for weeks on end, as some children are inclined to do.
Add all this information together, and one could argue children’s films are the most visible and popular around. No matter what age you are, you could probably name more movies made specifically for children than those created for any other target audience. To test how many you know, take our quiz and find out if you can name all of these classic kids movies.
1What movie features a kid’s favorite dolls all coming to life?
If there’s any dream just about every kid in the world can relate to, it’s the idea their dolls, action figures, and various other trinkets were all secretly alive. It wouldn’t even matter what sort of journeys they went on; if Mr. Potato Head could really hang out with an astronaut and a cowboy, strange and interesting things could easily develop. That’s definitely the case in this film, it’s the two sequels, bringing these mere inanimate objects to infinity and beyond. Do you know what it’s called?
2What kid flick introduced the insane Gru and his Minions?
Unsurprisingly, it’s very possible that super villainy is the greediest occupation in the world. Take for example the story of Gru, a notorious monster amongst men who nonetheless finds himself extraordinarily down in the dumps when a hotshot young bad guy pulls off a massive heist. Apparently, someone stole the Great Pyramid of Giza, and a true villain like Gru needs to one up him. The plan is simple—stealing the moon. Of course, that’s easier said than done, especially when it’s up to Gru’s Minions to pull off the job. Do you know what the movie is called?
