When I was a little kid, I LOVED Disney movies.
It was less the thought of falling in love with a prince that attracted me and more the fact that Disney heroes and heroines seemed to get lots and lots of attention. (I was a middle child, as anyone who knows me now could probably guess.)
Aurora from Sleeping Beauty pricks her finger and an entire kingdom has to sleep for 100 years to keep her company. Ariel from The Little Mermaid disobeys her family, runs away, and still ends up getting to live on land. Belle from Beauty and the Beast is the only one who can turn the beast into a prince. And Snow White's whole story centers around the fact that other people are jealous of her.
You should buy all of them. The only one I own so far is Sleeping Beauty, but I plan to rectify that. I especially want Robin Hood and The Little Mermaid.
Note: Sleeping Beauty comes in a child-proof DVD package with weird little "open" tabs. For the first 10 minutes, the package was me-proof as well. Watch for that.
