My Thoughts:

I can't tell you how big a fan Savannah is of Angelina Ballerina.  This was the first animated series she watched and had become her favorite.  We have all the Angelina Ballerina books, toys, movies, etc., and watch at least one episode a day.  I couldn't believe it when I found out this animates series was around when I was going up in the early 80's.  Did you know about it and see it?  I had the pleasure of reviewing the creator's early books this past holiday and was surprised to find this out.  A lot has changed since then, as the characters have been revamped to appeal to the younger audiences now.  I have to say that as a parent who monitors what their children watch, this is one show I don't have to worry about the content.  And, it is one show that I can sit through and watch with her.  I find the tunes and dancing catchy, and love to see Savannah dancing around the room, as she watches this show.

So, when I showed her the new DVD we got in the mail, she freaked out!  You would have thought she won the lottery.  In an instant, she snatched it from me, and ran to the living room, where she politely asked me to play it.  But, I told her we had to wait until her sister got up, as I didn't want to have her woken by Savannah dancing and loud noise, as she gets really excited when watching this show.  Once we began watching the episodes, Savannah couldn't stop clapping and smiling.  Out of all the 5 episodes, Savannah enjoyed "Angelina and the Disco Dance Craze" the most, as she has continued to ask me to play this one in particular.  But, that is not to say that the others aren't as good, as they were, and got Savannah dancing through them, from start to finish.  We have only had this DVD for a few days now, but have already watched it half a dozen times.  This is definitely one Angelina Ballerina DVD you want to have in your Angelina Ballerina collection!
