Boxcar Children Movie #1

6.61 h 21 min2014G
Four orphaned and homeless siblings happen upon an abandoned boxcar, which, with a little creativity and hard work, they gradually furnish with all the comforts of home. Fearful that they will be sent to live with the reputedly cruel grandfather they have never met, the children keep their new home a secret-until a serious illness forces them to reveal themselves in order to save young Violet.

Kid's favorite movie, even years later!

My kids have been watching this movie for years. Even my oldest kids at 10 and 12 still ask to watch this one when they need something calm and uplifting. The music is so pleasant it puts my littles to sleep. We love how well done this rendition of BoxCar Children was done.

Good, clean movie for kids
Verified purchase
We've watched both Boxcar Children movies and it's nice to have something truly G-rated that kids can enjoy. My only gripe with the original is that they seemed to find the bed to add a little 'drama' so there is one (short) scene not in the book, where the bakery owners spot the kids and offer brief chase in their car. Totally unnecessary, but not anything too bad.

Good values in this classic story
Verified purchase
My 3 and 5 year old always enjoy this movie. Animation isn't top quality but that's definitely fine and my kids don't notice. A bit slow moving but still kept my kids' attention surprisingly. Good values and kind children to set examples for my own. If your child is easily upset by scary moments the only scary moment is when the bakers come searching for the children and chase them through the woods in the night.
