NEW FRIENDS AND MAGICAL ADVENTURES AWAIT THE
WISH-GRANTING GENIES IN AN ALL-NEW DVD COLLECTION
Pre-order now on DVD from Amazon for only $9.99
Out of all the shows my girls watch, I have to say that this one has the catchiest theme song, and has the girls moving and jumping about from the start of the episode, all the way through, and usually long after. Why? Well, if you haven't seen an episode of this popular animated series, which airs daily on Nick Jr., then you are missing out...my girls' words! :-)
This show follows two genies in training, Shimmer and Shine. They are the magical genies for a little girl called Leah, who when she rubs her pendant necklace summons her genie friends. They arrive and this puts the whole story into motion with a fun adventure, which includes a few mishaps along the way, due to the genies not understanding Leah's three wishes she requests. But, the best part of these wish blunders is that the genies and Leah work together to make things right. And, each and every time the adventure or predicament they are in works itself out thanks to team work and perseverance. :-)
This is the third DVD release for this popular series, and I know it will not be the last, as I see this being a popular series for years to come. Even though it is geared towards the preschool age group, my girls who are 5 and 6.5, along with their friends who are 5-8 years old, can't get enough of Shimmer and Shine. This past Christmas Santa filled all the girls' Shimmer and Shine toy and dress up wishes. So, now whenever they get ready to watch Shimmer and Shine on Nickelodeon, they are usually dressed head to toe in their their favorite genies in training costumes. Or, they are toting around the many dolls and figures they have collected.
If you have a Shimmer and Shine fan in your life, you will definitely want to pre-order a copy of the new Shimmer and Shine: Friendship Divine which arrives in stores on Feb. 7th. This would be a perfect non-candy gift to give that special Shimmer and Shine fan in your life. :-)
Here is more about this upcoming DVD release from the folks at Nickelodeon...
