Prima Princessa Presents Sleeping Beauty (Product Review and Giveaway)

Closed.  And, the winner is:  Marysa!!!

A few weeks ago I spotlighted the 2 moms behind Prima Princessa Productions,, Mary Kate Mellow and Stephanie Troeller.  If you missed my interview with them, click here to read it now.  In addition, I reviewed their Nutcracker DVD and ran a giveaway for their other title in the Prima Princessa collection, Swan Lake.  Click here to read this review.

Today, I wanted to share more information on their recent release, Sleeping Beauty, and offer one lucky Inspired by Savannah reader a chance to win a copy for their little ballerina.  This would also make for a great stocking stuffer this upcoming holiday season!

About Prima Princessa's, Sleeping Beauty:

Join Prima Princessa on a fairy-dust-filled springtime adventure to see excerpts of The Sleeping Beauty performed live by The Royal Ballet in London, England. The animated Prima Princessa narrates the story, and between acts mini ballet demonstrations from students at the School of American Ballet are featured. After the ballet is over, the adventure continues with a magical tea party and fun floral crafts! Including Bonus Features: Tea Party, Acting on Stage, Fun Floral Crafts

My Thoughts:

I can't get Savannah to stop watching The Nutcracker DVD that I reviewed last month, so when given the chance to check Prima Princessa's new release, Sleeping Beauty, I jumped at the opportunity, just to see if Savannah had the same reaction.  And, she did.  As soon as I put the DVD in the machine and the music began to play, she started dancing around the living room.  It was so cute to watch her smile, laugh and just have fun, while watching this family-friendly DVD.  You don't have to be a ballerina or love ballet to enjoy this DVD.  The music alone is soothing.  What a great switch from cartoons.  :-)

Like the other DVDs in this collection, I love how they offer mini ballet demonstrations, to give your little dancer the opportunity to learn steps that were just shown on the DVD.  Even though Savannah is too run to understand this portion of the DVD, she likes to watch the other children dance around on the television.  I can't wait until she and her little sister on the way, get a little older and learn some of these ballet moves.  They will have so much fun watching this and the Nutcracker DVD from Prima Princessa for years to come.  And, I can see playing this DVD when they have their friends over for a fun afternoon activity.

So, if you have a tiny dancer in your family, or want to expose your child or grandchild to the ballet, this is a great way to do so.  Who knows, you may even spark their interest in dance after they practice the mini dance demonstrations?  I will definitely be watching for future titles from the Prima Princessa collection, and will pick them up to add to my daughter's collection.
