Over the years everyone seems to forget what we loved about great family movies from the past! I am often on he look out for films I used to watch when I was growing up. In fact some of my families favourite flicks have been the older movies when CGI was in it’s infancy and the movies seemingly had oodles of personality. Maybe you should revisit some of the best family movies which were originally released on VHS video and now many of the can be purchased in blu-ray format, although in my opinion I do prefer watching them on the VHS player that I still have in my home.
I generally find a lot of the video’s in charity shops at car boot sales and online. This is one of my top money saving tips which will keep your kids entertained and save you a little cash whilst you put on a great family movie night for your family.
The beauty of purchasing old family movies.
I sometimes wish we could wind the clock back to when we were younger. The main thing I miss is the amazing stories that seemed so different on when we watched movies as children. Most of the family movies from the past can often be bought from as little as £1 depending on where you shop! So, if you’re looking for a great movie to watch over lets say, the weekend or during the school holidays, you can pretty much watch one every night for hardly any money at all.
Hopefully this post will be thought provoking and maybe help you remember which family movies you loved when you were younger! So, let me show you 10 Family Movies that you must see and watch with your kids.
