My 7 year old daughter has become a dvd fanatic. When we see a new movie that she likes. The first thing she asks is "When is the dvd coming out?". And when my mother-in-law bought her a vhs tape. She said she would rather have it on dvd. She even gets the whole WS vs. P&S battle. She wanted Snow Dogs. After telling her why I wasn't buying it she replied. "That is stupid to cut a picture up." And for what is is worth they have never ever complained about the "black bars" on the tv. And when her friends come over to watch a movie. Not one of them have ever complained about the bars. And finally, I bought a dvd burner to record my favorite shows. Let's just say she is burning more shows that me. She is excited that she has Lizzie McGiure & Kim Possible (2 Disney tv shows) on dvd.
