Which fictitious character would you like to look after your children?

It’s the pressing question on everyone’s lips. Just which fictitious character would you like to look after your children?

And just in time, a poll from Childcare.co.uk, has managed to give us the answer.

Apparently, it’s Mrs Doubtfire. Yes, with 44 per cent of the vote, the beloved character played by Robin Williams is the person most parents thought would be best minding their children.

Flying into second place with 35 per cent, Mary Poppins was the next clear favourite with 23 per cent putting Nanny McPhee in third place.

Children had completely different ideas when it came to the suitability of childcare candidate picking Cat in the Hat, Timon and Pumba and in third place, Baloo from The Jungle Book.
