Chim Chim Cheree

Whilst browsing through a local market last weekend I came across a framed vinyl cover of the musical Mary Poppins.  Instantly I had a childhood flashback, not because I used to have the same vinyl album - I'm not that old (!) but because I used to love this film, even though it was made nearly 20 years before I was born!

There was something about it. Maybe it was the cheery songs, the Edwardian costumes and the uncertainty about Mary Poppins.  Who was she? Where did she come from? Together with a sentimental storyline that made me want to watch this film over and over again!

It got me thinking about the other favourite films I used to watch when I was a kid.  I realised quite a few of them were musicals, which is funny considering I thought I hated musicals!  I can remember exactly where I was the first time I watched each film so they must have made an impact.  I also seem to remember my mum not best pleased to discover I'd watched Dirty Dancing! Haha ooops!

So, here are my top favourite childhood movies, which even at the grand old age of 32 I could quite happily curl up on the sofa right now and lip sync the whole way through.

You gotta love Disney, right?

Childhood adventure at it's finest.

I blame both these films for the dodgy dance moves I seem to have acquired!

What were your favourite films as a kid?


  1. Oh nostalgia! I've had a yearning to watch Little Mermaid for quite some time, I really need to pick it up on DVD as it isn't on any of the online movie streaming sites xx

  2. I could very happily sit and watch these films with you, all except Dirty Dancing.. I know, I know, I'm the worst female ever but I really hate that film!x

  3. My faves as a child were The Labyrinth and The Nightmare Before Christmas. I loved Bedknobs and Broomsticks as well but always found it slightly scary at the end! :-) x

  4. I recently did the 90's tag on my blog and it brought back so many memories of watch I did as a child - I loved the little mermaid film and anastasia x
