Top 5 Anime Movies for Kids to Watch while Traveling

Anime movies and TV series have played a big part in the childhood of many. The best thing about anime is that it’s always filled with life lessons that can impart a lot of values and knowledge kids can benefit from as they grow up. However, you should also know that there are many anime that aren’t kid-friendly. Since the popularity of streaming services keeps increasing, it’s now easier to find quality anime movies that can be watched wherever you are. 

If you don’t have wireless internet, it’s okay because most streaming platforms already offer an offline streaming feature. So, here are the top five anime moves for kids to watch while traveling. 

Top 5 Anime Movies for Kids to Watch while Traveling

Kiki’s Delivery Service

Kiki’s Delivery Service is about a young witch with a black cat in a small seaside town who delivers goods through her broomstick. As she flies around delivering things for her neighbors, she will learn a lot about friendships, independence, and herself.  Of course, her deliveries don’t go smoothly as always. But these challenges are there to give her lessons about life, perseverance, and more. We’d rate this 10/10, so make sure to watch it.

My Neighbor Totoro

Another classic, My Neighbor Totoro is a heartwarming anime movie about two young sisters named Satsuki and Mei. They moved to the countryside with her father, but they discovered that they were not alone in their new home. There are a lot of enchanting forest spirits, one named Totoro. 

If you want your kid to improve their imagination, My Neighbor Totoro is a good movie to watch. It’s an old movie, so you can watch it on many streaming platforms, including no contract TV services. 

Spirited Away

Spirited Away is one of the most loved anime movies of all time. It’s all about the story of Chihiro, a ten-year-old girl whose parents were transformed into pigs by a witch. Of course, she wants to save her parents. But to do that, she needs to find a way to break the curse – which led to her taking a job in a mysterious bathhouse designed for spirits. 

Her journey to save her parents isn’t an easy one. She needs to face many challenges, including her fears, and be resourceful. If you want to teach your kids the value of kindness and empathy, Spirited Away is the best anime movie for you.


Does your kid love fish and the sea? Ponyo is the way to go! Ponyo is an anime film about a young boy named Sosuke and a magical fish named Ponyo. Ponyo decides to become human, and so she does. She became a girl and explored the human world. With their friendship, they go through an exciting series of adventures that teaches the audience about love, responsibility, and respect for the environment. 

Personally, we really enjoyed watching Ponyo. If you’re planning to watch this and no offline viewing feature is available, make sure to have back up internet when you travel to avoid any disruptions. 

Spy x Family

Spy x Family is not a movie, but we wanted to include it if you’re looking for an option that can entertain your kid for a longer time. It is an adventure comedy anime series about a make-do family called the Forger Family. However, they’re not just a typical fake family because they consist of a spy, an assassin, and a telepath. 

This crazy combination results in hilarious chaos as they try to live their double lives. But craziness aside, this movie teaches a lot about family and trust. The unique characters is definitely a plus, but the story is definitely a good watch.

Final Thoughts

Anime movies are definitely a good choice for your kids if you want to go beyond the traditional cartoons we have right now. While most of the movies we shared are already classics, we assure you that every title we shared are full of values for your kids. Plus, they’re equally entertaining too. Have fun streaming and safe travels!
