    hey rodion, I know my post might be useless to you, but isn't it okay to show your kid something like

    Grave of fireflies (?? or butterflies)

    or those animes made by the same person

    I think his animes are good for a kids imagination, as long as you watch it with her kinda like "parent guidance"

    and cute girls in cool devices huh??

    'Cause you give me something / That makes me scared, alright / This could be nothing / But I'm willing to give it a try / Please give me something
    'Cause someday I might call you from my heart

    My thoughts exactly. I can even picture angry parents wielding pitchforks and torches, banging at my front gate and chanting "BURN! BURN! BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!"

    Thanks PP, will check those out too. Well my Cool Devices come in these weird monochrome green printed VCDs and on one of them was an image of that Elf-girl that married a Knight (Episode 12?), so she thought it might be some kind of fairy tale story hehe (well, she was actually right, it was a fairly tale story, but there was more to the "tale" than what was meant for kids like her

    Don't think Grave of the Fireflies is a good anime for a child, the movie by Isao Takahata is not the type of anime for smaller children, there is a meaning to it, and it takes great attention to know what it is. The portrayal of the "human cost of war" is the theme in this movie. It's very slow in progression, and I personally think a 4-5 year old kid would be bored out of their minds.

    Not to take away from the film, on the contrary this movie was extraordinary, no doubt in the minds of everyone that it came from the Production Studios of Miyazaki. Movies like Spirited Away would be more of the childish type of movie, since there's more fun and music, as compared to Grave of the Fireflies' gloomy mood all throughtout the movie.

    Here are some movies from the Miyazaki Studios:

    - Spirited Away
    - Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-Hime)
    - Kiki's Delivery Service
    - Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbour Totoro)
    - Laputa (Castle in the Sky)
    - Grave of the Fireflies
    - Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
    - Lupin the 3rd

    I have Spirited Away! You think it's ok to show her that? I myself find the witch too scary! Am trying to look for Nausicaa in the locality, because I love airplanes, but can't seem to find it

    Say, what's that anime with the strange white rabbit-like alien that was befriended by this dark-haired boy wearing glasses? That seems kinda fun.

    Rabbit!??!? ummmm I'm not sure...

    The only animes I know of with any rabbits in them are...

    Tenchi Muyo Series?

    I doubt it's that because I don't remember Tenchi wearing glasses... The closest thing to a rabbit in that though is Ryooki~

    I'll have to think about it, I don't remember such an anime... Probably deep within my memory somewhere... I'll sleep over it haha~

    Hello Kitty
    Azumanga Daioh (No violence and funny as hell)
    Hamtaro

    Hmmmm, I'll add more to the list later :S

    ...PitaTenHere are some movies from the Miyazaki Studios:

    - Spirited Away

    - Kiki's Delivery Service
    - Tonari no Totoro (My Neighbour Totoro)
    - Laputa (Castle in the Sky)
    - Grave of the Fireflies
    - Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind
    - Lupin the 3rd
    That's a pretty thurough list ex-paranoia, and you're right, many Studio Gibli films are not appropriate for a 5 year old. namely; Princess Mononoke (Mononoke-Hime), Grave of the Fireflies, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind, and Lupin the 3rd (scene at the end).

    As someone who has a 5 year old I can tell you his favorites are; Hamtaro (!!!), Monster Rancher, Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbour Totoro, Spirited Away (he does need a hand held occasionally on this one), and his absolute favorite is Castle in the Sky.
