NEW YORK, NY (January 10, 2017) – Parents magazine has teamed up with Common Sense Media (www.commonsensemedia.org) to reveal their picks for the “10 Best Movies of All Time for Siblings to Share.” To develop the list of winning titles, Common Sense Media editors selected G- and PG-rated films that would appeal to both preschoolers and elementary-school age children. From there, Parents narrowed down the list by seeking input from families with two or more children.
“Younger children may be scared or confused when watching the movies their older siblings like,” says Liz Vaccariello, Editor-In-Chief of Parents magazine. “Parents can use our list to find fun films that will appeal to children of all ages.”
The 10 picks from Parents and Common Sense Media range from classics to recent hits:
- The Adventures of Milo and Otis (1986)
- Cars (2006)
- Frozen (2013)
- The Gruffalo (2009)
- The Lorax (1972)
- The Muppet Movie (1979)
- My Neighbor Totoro (1988)
- The Peanuts Movie (2015)
- Shaun the Sheep Movie (2015)
- Toy Story (1995)
"Picking a movie when you have kids of different ages can be a challenge," said Betsy Bozdech, Executive Editor at Common Sense Media. "Common Sense Media reviews all media with kids' social, emotional, and physical development in mind, and we're thrilled to partner with Parents to help families find the best media to enjoy together."
