From The Kid to Toy Story, cinema has given us thousands of indelible ways to entertain and stimulate children, and subdue the difficult ones. We all grew up with classics that have stuck with us: for some it was Pixar; others were weaned on the classics of Disney animation or Studio Ghibli's fantasical otherworlds. But what should you be treating your kids to first? Glad you asked because we've been weighing up this very question. Tears were shed and hair was pulled but eventually we came up with 50 of the finest kids' films in cinema. And, hey, we're all friends again now.
