Toy Story 'number one film all children should see'

Posted by SchoolDays Newshound on 30/07/2012. Toy Story 'number one film all children should see'Tags: Family And Leisure

Toy Story has been named as the number one film children should see before they are nine-and-a-half due to its "essential life-lessons".

Child psychologist Dr Kairen Cullen compiled a list based on the entertainment value along with the film's moral themes.

The expert commented: "The hardest lessons children have to learn are not the sort that fit neatly into the school curriculum or can be found in any parenting guides."

Movie rental service Lovefilm asked 5,000 adults to name their favourite childhood films and Dr Cullen found common themes among the most popular entries.

Toy Story took first place in the poll with 17 per cent of the votes and Dr Cullen claimed the movie teaches children that everyone should be treated with respect and that all people have worth.

The Lion King, which was released in 1994, collected 14 per cent of the vote and placed second, while Home Alone was third.
