Has anyone seen (in Auckland) any good
3D movies for young kids (5-7yo). There seams to be a distinct lack of them over these holidays. 
Apparently The Clousy with a chance of meatballs movie had good reviews and was made in 3D too 
but seams to only be on in the BOP

I am not sure on a good film for them, but it would have to be short. I have heard quite a few times that kids, esp younger ones, cannot stand the glasses for long periods of time.

Way too much violence for 5-7 year olds.  Our 23 year-old son really enjoyed it though Smile

I personally loved Avatar 3D. But I'd have to strap my kids down and auto feed them lollies to get them to last 2.5 hrs anywhere!  Or get my wife to come along and do her magic... but then I'd have to strap her down and drip feed her wine to get her to last 2.5 hrs on anything "geeky or boyish"! :)

edit : and you are correct - a bit too adult for my kids yet. I'm talking Hannah Montana  and the 7 yo boy equivalent ... they don't do leggo Star wars movies do they by any chance ... in 3D ? :)

That movie "How to Train Your Dragon" coming in March looks like it could work for you ;)

I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.
