Children's films - the best for the very youngest

16/10/2020

It is not always easy to know where to look when looking for good children's movies. Right? It's full of streaming services and yes, it's a bit of a jungle. To make things easier for you, we have therefore made a list of the most popular children's films for the very youngest - from the newest to the slightly more classic.Are you looking for movies for slightly older children? You will find that list here!

Children's films for young children - good or bad?

This with screen time is an ongoing debate. Some say that children under the age of 2 should not have any time in front of screens at all, while others say that the most important thing is not the time in front of the screen but what it is actually that the child is watching. More information about small children and screen time can be found at 1177 as well as on Forskning.se.Of course, a child should not spend too long sitting still in front of a TV, computer or tablet - that is not why we want to recommend good children's films. We want to recommend the best clips and movies so that you as a parent can feel calm and know that your child is watching something good and sometimes even developing during those moments. Because it is not reasonable to keep a child completely away from screens today. What we can ensure, however, is to choose good and educational programs.

Since then, they have not only become animated episodes but as many as seven children's films about the old man and the cat. And the characters are at least as popular now as when the books first came out.You can find the shorter clips about Pettson and Findus for free SVT Play.The feature films are available C More, SF Anytime and Netflix.
