Nothing beats spending quality time with your brood. But that doesn’t mean grown-ups should have to forgo the fun. From little kids to big kids, these half-term deals in BT TV Store will keep the whole family happy.

1. Lego Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite

What do you get when you cross the world’s most popular toy with one of the world’s top superheroes? Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite, of course. DC Comics’ favourite recluse Bruce Wayne must battle against a motley crew of prison escapees led by The Joker, but that’s not all. There’s also his arch nemesis Lex Luthor to contend with. Spectacular CGI animation and amazing attention to detail bring this world of bricks to life – Adult Fans Of Lego (AFOLs) are sure to approve. Buy from £5.49 on BT TV Store

2. The B.F.G.

Indulge in a bit of nostalgia with this animated adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic bedtime story. The gentle giant is played to perfection by Mark Rylance – expect to be charmed all over again by his word-muddling and eccentric vocabulary; ‘human beans’ for human beings; ‘gogglers’ for eyes and ‘gloriumptious’ for something glorious and scrumptious. Buy from £7.49 on BT TV Store

3. Jumanji

You’ll all be steering well clear of the attic after watching 1995 family classic Jumanji. After discovering a mysterious old board game in the loft, the Shepherd children unleash the darkest jungle, resulting in a riot of animals running wild, scary hunters and freakish weather. A trip down memory lane for those who remember it from the first time around. Buy from £4.49 on BT TV Store

4. Minions

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you couldn’t have failed to notice the recent invasion of these little yellow creatures – they’re everywhere. But what are they and where do they come from? Minions will not only enlighten you on these pressing questions, but you’ll be laughing along the whole time as they try (and fail) to do the bidding of evil villain Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). Cheeky, silly and extremely accident-prone, they may look like and sound like squeaky dog toys, but, by the end, you can’t help but love these little guys. Buy from £5.49 on BT TV Store

5. Nanny McPhee

Forget Mary Poppins, Nanny McPhee is the magical governess du jour. Written by and starring brilliant national treasure Emma Thompson, the story follows seven naughty children who’ve scared away more nannies than they’ve had hot suppers. Then Nanny McPhee arrives. Her motto ‘behave or beware’ may sound a bit severe, but her firm-but-fair methods seem to do the trick. Full of fantasy, spellbinding magic and mischief, you’ll all learn a thing or two from the formidable Nanny McPhee. Buy from £4.99 on BT TV Store
