Top 10 Cutest Animated Children in Movies

They put the aww in adorable. Welcome to MsMojo and today we’ll be counting down our picks for top 10 cutest animated children in movies.

For this list, we’ll be looking at big screen kids with cute faces and great personalities. We won’t be looking at animal babies or children from TV shows since that’s a list for another day, but aliens or humanoids are a-ok.

#10: Young Derek & Young Odette
“The Swan Princess” (1994)

These two grew up in some interesting circumstances. With hopes of combining two kingdoms, their parents forced them to spend every childhood summer together and arranged for them to be married when they grew up. The parents were hoping for a love connection, but the two children hated each other at first. They eventually fall in love, but seeing them roughhouse as kids is all part of the charm. Derek doesn’t change that much over the years, as even his hair stays the exact same. But Odette goes from a feisty tomboy with freckles to, well, a swan princess.

#9: Megamind
“Megamind” (2010)

Megamind may have better realized his plans for evil domination if he had just stayed a baby. Come on, how could anyone could say no to that face! His cuteness comes from a bizarre combination of blue skin, rosy cheeks and the biggest green eyes you’ve ever seen. He’s a pretty happy baby at first, constantly giggling and cooing, until his home planet starts falling apart. That’s when the sad little look on his face will break your heart. It makes you want to snuggle that gigantic head of his to make him feel all better.

#8: Kayley
“Quest for Camelot” (1998)

Kayley grows up around the beautiful and idyllic Kingdom of Camelot. There she rides her little pony along the seaside with her parents, listening to her father’s stories. Right away her zest for life is captivating and it’s obvious that there are great things in store for the little girl. You can practically see the love of adventure glowing in her bright brown eyes. Even after her father is killed, that glow only gets stronger and she manages to keep her father’s spirit alive even while doing farmyard chores.

#7: Chihiro Ogino
“Spirited Away” (2002)

It’s amazing Chihiro came out as good as she did, considering her parents are a couple of pigs. No seriously, they get cursed while accidentally in a spirit world and are turned into the animals, so Chihiro goes through all sorts of trials in order to save them. Fortunately, she is so caring and hardworking – not to mention determined – that she makes people want to help her. Her kindness is so infectious that she has spirits throwing gold at her feet and she even attempts to befriend a witch. Her looks don’t hurt either, with rosy cheeks and that high ponytail with bangs look that will never go out of style.

#6: Boss Baby
“The Boss Baby” (2017)

Who would have thought that a baby with the deep voice of Alec Baldwin could be so gosh darn adorable? He wouldn’t like to hear us say that, but just look at those eyes, and that nose, and that dashing little suit. There are a lot of cute babies in this movie, like a whole army of them, but we just went ahead and chose the boss baby. From the moment he came into the world, he took charge and was the man with a plan. There is just something about a grumpy scowling baby that’s irresistible and refreshing.

#5: Mei Kusakabe
“My Neighbor Totoro” (1988)
Her encounters with the giant Totoro aside, Mei is one of the most realistic children on this list. She gets distracted a lot, wants to do everything her big sister does, and has limitless curiosity. She is a ray of sunshine and can find joy in every situation, even when visiting her sick mom in the hospital. Her best feature is definitely her boisterous laugh, which is completely contagious. We also need to talk about that hair of hers: pigtails really need to make a comeback, because they’re adorable.

#4: Dennis
“Hotel Transylvania 2” (2015)

He’s about 10% kid and 90% hair. Dennis was born with a precious tuft of red hair that grew into a magnificent curly mane bigger than he is. His cuteness is only amplified by all the monsters around him and his bat form is amazing. It’s no surprise that Dennis is super adorable - whether you’re looking at him as a baby or a 5 year old - considering how cute his momma was when she was a little vampire. With her little fangs and big blue eyes, it’s no wonder papa Dracula is so protective. Lucky fella - all the children in his life are just too much.

#3: Anne-Marie
“All Dogs Go to Heaven” (1989)

This little orphan had a really rough start in life, but she’s one of the most compassionate and sweetest girls you’ll ever meet. She has the ability to understand and talk to animals and they are her best friends. She even manages to make raggedy clothes look cute, especially the little yellow bow she wears. It looks like she’s wearing make-up with her rosy cheeks and dark eyelashes, but that’s all-natural - and her eyes will make your heart melt. Tragically, Judith Barsi, who voiced Anne-Marie, died before the movie’s release, but her sweet voice lives on.

#2: Ponyo
“Ponyo” (2009)
We know this is our third Studio Ghibli film, but Hayao Miyazaki just creates the most adorable kids! Ponyo is not only one of the most endearing, but also one of the most unusual Ghibli children, since she is a goldfish princess. You heard that right, she’s an itty bitty fish princess. She has a shock of red hair that sticks out in all directions with a feisty attitude to match. Ponyo is a fish out of water, who assumes her more human form using magic when she’s away from the sea. She hasn’t spent much time on land, so she’s giddy at every new discovery and is always a little bundle of joy.

Before we reveal our cutest pick here are a few honorable mentions.

“Ice Age” (2002)

Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia / ‘Anya’
“Anastasia” (1997)

#1: Agnes, Edith & Margo
“Despicable Me” (2010-) franchise

There was no way we could pick a favorite out of these three, since they’re each lovable in their own way. Agnes is a bundle of joy, always ready to show love and affection and appreciate the fluffier things in life. Edith is the tomboy of the group, and her constant sarcasm and dark sense of humor are hilarious. Margo is the oldest and the leader of the group. She makes sure her sisters are happy and she’s always looking out for them. The three girls balance each other perfectly and are so endearing they even manage to melt Gru’s cold heart.
