My twins love it when we have our monthly movie afternoon! We all curl up on the sofa in front of the TV, and enjoy a family movie together with munchies. So we’ve come up with our 10 perfect movies to watch as a family. When I was told about the new OLED 4K TV Panasonic have coming out, I was keen to take a look! I didn’t think we were really in the market for a new TV, but I have to say, I am quite tempted now…
The high definition televisions, with a sleek design and bright, colourful display look perfect to watch family movies on! I couldn’t even tell you how old our TV is, but I can tell you we would love a new one like these!
Up until recently it’s been a struggle to get our five year olds to sit still long enough to watch anything on the TV, let alone a full movie! We still don’t believe they’re ready for a trip to the cinema yet, so enjoying a relaxing family movie together in front of a great TV is one of our ultimate pleasures!

Dino Time – Amazon Prime
Dino Time is a great movie which my twins really enjoyed. It follows three children who travel back in time 65 million years, where they are taken in by a dinosaur.
Paddington – Amazon Prime
Ok I’m gonna be honest here – I had been putting off watching Paddington. I presumed it would be ridiculously boring, but boy was I wrong! I laughed most of the way through! A must watch! Paddington 2 is also available to stream.
Rango – Amazon Prime
A cute chameleon trying to be the town hero – Rango was enjoyed by us all. My twins first ‘western’!
LEGO Jurassic World: The Indominus Escape – Amazon Prime
Now, I love a LEGO movie, and this one is no exception! Ok ok, it’s only about 25 minutes long, so not really a movie, but we all love watching it none the less. And it’s handy for when you only have a small amount of time, but still want to watch something.
The House of Magic – Amazon Prime
This is a lovely family movie to watch about a cute little cat who gets left behind, but finds a new home… There’s lots going on and so many wonderful things to look at! We definitely recommend.
Sing – Netflix
Sing is one of my favourite movies! It’s one I’ll happily watch on my own, never mind as a family! We all loved this movie – a perfect feel good film, you can’t help but feel uplifted!
Matilda – Netflix
An oldie but a goodie! Matilda is one of those movies that will always be loved, and you just have to watch at least once as a family.
Hotel For Dogs – Netflix
Another movie I can watch again and again, Hotel for Dogs is a brilliant feel good film. I like that it’s a do-good film about kids and dogs, and I like to think it helps inspire kids!
Shark Tale – Netflix
A vegetarian shark with the sweetest personality is what makes this movie! A bright, colourful movie with great music and a great story.
Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of The Were-Rabbit – Netflix
This is a brilliant movie if you have little ones who love making inventions and contraptions! They’ll love to see all the contraptions Wallace has made, and thoroughly enjoy a classic movie at the same time! Other Wallace & Gromit movies are also on Netflix.
