    What DVD's for my 2 year old?

    So, Xmas is getting ever near
    His main presents are sorted out (Kids Electric Sit In Car, lucky so and so :giggle: - that thing moves faster than i can walk! ) and a tool work bench thing.

    So, now im onto the small presents.

    Just been looking for some good dvds for him through HMV.
    So far ive got A Bugs Life and Monsters Inc but now im stuck.
    Dont wanna pay a fortune for a dvd, so please keep it reasonably priced (£8 max)

    Bare in mind also hes only just turned 2 so nothing too interlectual :giggle:

    lazytown they have a new christmas dvd
    tweenies
    bob the builder or big cook little cook
    my 2 - 3 yr old nephews love big cook little cook
    and lazytown
    woolies have lots but tend to cost about a tenner but would see whats available
    those were the days i used to love watching tweenies with my two lol

    Peppa pig is a good one, my boys loved her last year. and the 3 box set was about £13.00.

    found it in argos!!!

    argos.co.uk/sta…htm

    The ice age movies are good. Both movies can be bought for £17.99 but will be cheaper after using a voucher and/or quidco.

    TBH, hes not interested in the telly, doesnt watch any cartoons, really not interested.
    Although, if you can find me a dvd full of adverts he'll be hooked (very strange little boy, when the adverts are on he's mesmirized and deaf!)

    Just wanna add, the DVDs dont have to be from HMV either

    Disney Pixar & some Dreamworks DVD's are £6.99 and under at HMV - dont forget your 10% off voucher and 11% Quidco.

    I ordered Madagascar £6.49, Finding Nemo £6.99 & Monstres Inc £6.99

    just for my own pleasure

    Oh, and ive just remembered, ive got a boxset on order from play.com (5 dvds in a box set for £4.99 inc casper) that sort of thing is good

    Doesnt have to be "named" dvds if you know what i mean i.e disney, just some young sort of stuff

    but his one im sure you could find it really cheap on ebay.

    I can make you a dvd of adverts if you like (does he have any favorites ones - pre 9pm :lol: )

    And in the spirit of xmas I'll give it him free.

    My mum used to stick me in front of a chubby brown video when I was a nipper, kinda explains the reasons I'm so warped lol

    LOL @ The Mincer!

    Some good recommendations from peeps there...

    I would recommend books instead. Perhaps even interactive books that make noises. Do books first before TV, or your kid won't want to go back to books. We did that with our wee boy and it's worked wonders! Book are better for building attention in the young. If you give your kid a diet of flashing colours and awesome noises he'll be choking down ritalin at the age of 8.

    Of course TV can also be good, and I'd recommend anything on CBBC. Believe it or not, Tellytubbies are good and so are Tweenies. Blue's Clues also good.

    Just don't get him WWE and stuff like that. I'm constantly amazed how many of my son's friends at school were regularly watching Little Britain etc. in nursery and coming out with things like "I'm the only gay in the village". It's pretty depressing when you think that the future of our society rests with these kids...sigh...

    Ive recently purchased over 30 books for him, so dont worry.
    Also, ordered a lovely winnie the pooh book box set due to it being posted on here.

    My son was 2 on Monday and all he wants to watch now is the 2 Peppa Pig DVD's that his Uncle bought him * snort *

    Admittedly, it's the only kids show that I can watch repeatedly without going mad......

    Ok,
    Just ordered the dvds, i decided on :

    Bugs life @ 5.99
    Monsters Inc @ 6.99
    Shrek/Madagascar set @ 10.99

    All the above prices are HMV
    Then got myself 2 dvds taking it to over £30 used a £5 discount code, and went through quidco
