Last week i took my 3 year old daughter to see Shrek Forever After at the cinemas. This was her very first cinema experience and to be honest i wasn’t convinced she would sit through the whole movie. I chose Shrek because she has just about worn out 1, 2 & 3 so i at least knew she loves Shrek.
Even before Violet was born i had a big DVD collection of animated movies, I just love them. I am so excited to finally be able to see these movies on the big screen with someone who loves them as much as me.
Thankfully the cinema was pretty empty. Violet was super excited and all the way through the ads she asked when was Shrek coming. As soon as the movie started she settled into her chair and munched her packet of twisties. Besides one or two questions the only other thing that came out of her mouth was laughter!!!
The movie in itself was good so i would highly recommend you grab your toddler and let them enjoy the cinema experience. Just to give you a little rundown of the movie basically Shrek is bored with his domesticated life and signs a contract with deal-maker Rumpelstiltskin to get back to feeling like a real ogre again, but when he’s duped and sent to a twisted version of Far Far Away — where Rumpelstiltskin is king, ogres are hunted, and he and Fiona have never met — he sets out to restore his world and reclaim his true love.
Toy Story 3 came out last week so if bubs still hasn’t arrived in the next few weeks i will take Violet to see that…. once the school holidays are finished of course.
