    Default 2 yr old for Frozen?

    Is a 2 yr old too young to take to a full length movie? We are babysitting DH's nephew (the hyper overtired one) Saturday night while his parents go to a Christmas party and we were thinking of taking him to see Frozen.

    I don't think I've ever seen him sit for that long so I'm thinking no....but I'm not sure.

    We took our oldest to a movie for the first time when he was about 3. He would sit through a movie at home - but he lasted about half way before he was moving all around. And that was in a theatre where we were just about the only people - so I would say don't waste your money.

    Maybe there is an indoor playground near you? Even a McD's one could keep him busy - and possibly tire him out!

    I agree, take him to a play park and tire him out.

    I'm pretty sure my son's first full length movie was for his 3rd birthday (Gnomeo and Juliet) I would say it depends on the kid. My almost 4 year old still can't sit through a full movie. My almost 6 year old has been able to sit through a full movie since he was 3. I wouldn't even dare take my 18 month old to watch a movie, everyone in the theater would want to strangle me :P I'm thinking there might be other fun things to do with a kid, like go to McDonalds play place and run around on the climbers. It's a shame it's at night, because most kid friendly things are not open. If you are really set on a movie maybe watch a movie at home, that way you aren't out much money if he has no interest. You could make it special for him and have a special snack while watching. My boys really like it when I pop popcorn in the air popper and drizzle it with butter for movie watching in our basement (but popcorn is a choking hazard so check with the parents first!)
