Right now Kellan is obsessed with Toy Story 3. No joke. He has probably seen the movie ten times and still can't get enough of it. He loves to act out scenes from the movie. He also asks me to play along and dictates exactly what we should do. I have gotten pretty weary of this, but I also understand how the movie has captured his imagination. It has talking toys, a funny old dog and an exciting opening sequence involving a train. What three-year-old wouldn't appreciate that?
My husband says Toy Story 3 is like Star Wars for him. Erik says it was the first movie he remembers watching. He and his brothers had the Star Wars toys and played out the scenes from the movie. I think the first movie that made a big impression on me was E.T. I wasn't as invested in all the merchandise - I was way more into dolls than a funny looking alien - but I did see the movie many times.
Is there a movie that's made a big impression on your kid?
