My Thoughts:

My daughter, Savannah, is a huge fan of Angelina Ballerina.  Since receiving Dancing on Ice on DVD a couple of weeks ago, we have watched this movie every day, and she carries the empty DVD case around with her wherever she goes.  When I take the case away, she gets upset.  You should see her during the opening credits of each episode.  As soon as the music starts, she begins swaying side to side, and then flails her arms all around and does a happy dance.  It is so cute.  And, she has the biggest smile on her face.  Once the show starts, you can’t bother her, as she stares intently at the screen.

So, when I was sent this 3-DVD set, I knew she would love it.  And, she did.  We received it over the weekend, and have already watched the discs a few times. She had previously watched these shows on Netflix, but each time I play one of the DVD’s, she acts like it is the first time she has seen it. 

I can’t wait for the next Angelina Ballerina DVD to come out, as I know my daughter will be as excited for it, as she has been for this DVD set and prior Angelina Ballerina DVDs released.

If you have a little ballerina in your house, or an Angelina Ballerina fan like my daughter, then you definitely need to pick up the 3-Disc Holiday DVD set today.  It would make for a great holiday gift, or for a great family movie night.  I know that if I left my daughter watch all 3 discs in one sitting, she would.  But, we both look forward to our “Mommy and Me” time when her sister Arabella takes a nap each day.  She chooses the disc and we watch and dance along to Angelina Ballerina.  What a great time!

Disclosure: I was sent a copy of this DVD in order to write up an honest review. The views above are mine and mine alone.
