Matilda is fantastic!

I agree, matilda is brilliant. Even my moaning ds (13) loved it and he had to be dragged along.

I took DD to see Mamma Mia for her 7th birthday. She absolutely adored it!

Matilda is utterly brilliant. You might try Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (think it is opening in May)?

Ah read back properly now blush

My dd2 loves the film Mamma Mia and we did take her to see it before we moved so she would have been 3, dc1&2 would have been 6 and 8. They seemed to enjoy it from memory.

Wizard of oz - both DD and I loved it!

Humm, I've taken my two to a few things, and actually I'd be really tempted to wait for Matilda - it's genuinely outstanding...

I wonder if they are having the tent in Kensington gardens - that was quite a nice experience, esp if you get a warm day.

Stomp's quite clever... ?

right going to wait for matilda and have just booked

thank you everyonexx

mnet is great for stopping me faffing !

Would those of you who have seen Matilda think it is suitable for a nearly 6 yr old (quite sensible)? I think dd1 (8) would love it, but not so sure about dd2....?

BadRoly Wed 01-May-13 14:26:28

Depends on the child I think - dd2 (who saw Mamma Mia) can't sit still through a film at the cinema so I wouldn't take her yet! She is 6 1/2! It is a bit of an emotional roller coaster (I thought) but I don't think it's too scary or grown up.
