Of all the movies and DVDs we've picked out for our 5 1/2 year old, these have been the best! True fun for the whole family! Strong positive messages about family, friendship, and caring for pets with less scary stuff then many other popular movies ( Tangled, Fung Fu Panda, Peter Pan). We hate the orphan, evil mother theme of so many of the Disney movies and these have none of that. There are a lot of dragon fight scenes but they are not to scary, you never see any of them get hurt, and they often end humorously. We are now watching the "Defender of Berk" Part 1 series and these are even more appropriate for youngest kids.
