DD is 3 and a bit and has been sick for a few days. For the last two days we've had a 'movie afternoon' and it's been a blessing :-) She's watched 'Finding Nemo' and 'Madagascar' and both went down a treat.
Any other movie suggestions? I sit there with her so can talk her through 'rougher' bits (like Nemo getting taken away!!!)

Cars 1 and 2
Madagascar 2 and 3
Toy Story 1,2 and 3
Shrek 1,2,3 and 4
Also the 2 PP suggested are great.

What about going really old school.
My soon to be 3 year old nephew loves the original versions of Mary Poppins & Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

My DD is snotty, ear infection and tonsils....so feeling your pain here too!
We are currently watching "My Little Pony Movie". Yesterday we watched Robots and Mary Poppins.

Thanks! Haven't thought of Mary Poppins. I used to love it!

My 2 1/2 year old loves The Bee Movie, all the Toy Story movies

The Fairies have movies/DVDs of the series that my girls love at that age. Good because they are short episodes, rather than a longer story.
We also went through a lot of DVDs like hi5 (the originals) at that age. Good to get them up and moving if they R feeling better as well.

Most cartoons - so a lot of the Disney and Dreamworks ones.
The only live actions ones she likes have animals, such as 'Babe'. Oh, and the Wiggles movie.

At that age, my DD loved the original version of Anni and the movie Madeline.
Parent trap was another favourite.
I hope your DD is feeling better soon.

My DD is currently loving the disney princess moves with Beauty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid going down really well. She seems to prefer the cartoon options so far so have yet to attempt Mary Poppins etc with her but we might attempt those when her dad goes away in a fortnight

My DD same age loves
Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs

Thanks for all your suggestions. Just started watching Toy Story and she's asleep! She hasn't had a daytime nap since December last year :-) Poor little sick munchkin.

My 3yo is obsessed with the movie "Rio" (about a bird).
I had never heard of it, and he watched it at my brother's house, and we've since borrowed it and he asks to watch it constantly.

I'd have to disagree with a PP recommendation of Cars 2. My son got it for his 3rd birthday and I was really taken aback with it, especially since Cars was so sweet and innocent.
Maybe it's just me, but I found Cars 2 to be a relatively high-concept James Bond-style ripoff, with lots of stuff about spies, villains, henchmen, guns etc.
Everything else mentioned above sounds on the money, though!

My DD's current favourite is Monsters Inc.
Other good ones are cloudy with a chance of meatballs, toy story, cars, any Thomas the tank movie, ratatouille, little rascals, rio and Horton hears a who.

Dd liked the Tinkerbell movies at that age, she also loves the Chipmunk movie Chipwrecked.

Mine loves the original 101 Dalmatians. Do not confuse it with the 1996 live action one, she hates that!
About the only live action movie she likes is Alvin and the Chipmunks. I warn you though, it's really, really annoying!
