I showed Totoro to my daughter for the first time this week. She's a year and a half so I didn't know if she would like it or not. I was especially worried about the beginning, I thought it might be too slow or boring for her. But she was glued to it from the start. I think it's because she really liked watching Mei more then any other character. I assumed when I started to play it for he that the big Totoro would be her favorite but she really seemed to be into the kids more. That didn't stop her from giggling up a storm when the first two little Totoros started showing up. I was impressed, it really is a good movie. I didn't have an english copy of the film so it was all in Japinise. That didn't seem to matter.
Watching my cartoon collection with Quinn has started to be one of my favorite things to do with her. I really like to see what it is that she is reacting to. So far she seems to have good taste in Cartoons.
