Children’s Movies From the 90s We All Love

For some of us that grew up in the 90s, there are some movies we can’t just stop loving. While they were made for children, most of these movies captured the attention and interest of adults and were wholesome with for the entire family. Just like some of our favorite books, these films are still available in different formats. We can certainly go back to them from time to time. Can you remember some of these movies? Here are some we will never forget. 

Addams Family 

Did you ever wonder how cool it will be to have a father who is an amazing sword fighter and a mother who wouldn’t mind you playing with your food? That was the privilege of the kids in the Addams family. 


Many of us wished we had a pet monkey and could meet a genie who will grant three wishes. This was all because of the Disney classic, Aladdin. The story has received live-action adaptations, but we would choose the original at any time. 


What happens when a little puppy grows into a slobbering dog? Some members of the family will not love it so much, but no one will stay behind when the lovely pet is in trouble. 

Home Alone 

Who didn’t love Kevin McCallister in the 90s? Played by a young Macaulay Culkin, the bratty kid was always too clever for the two dangerous bandits even when he is left home alone by accident. 


This was an interesting children’s movie from the 90 that features an aging Peter Pan. It was obvious that our hero has forgotten Neverland until Captain Hook kidnaps a group of kids and must rescue them. 


First a book and then an interesting movie of the same title, Matilda was awesome in the 90s too. Most of us were truly in love with the titular character who had it all – ingenuity and power. It was always refreshing to see the bond between our heroine and her school teacher, Ms. Honey. 

The Lion King 

This list would not be complete without The Lion King. This is one of the biggest Disney films of all time, which is why (we think) Beyoncé had to accept a lead role in the live-action version. We still prefer the original, however, and will not blink at the opportunity to see it over and over again. 

There are so many other children movies from the 90s we love. These are just the ones that we have space to mention.
