My Thoughts:

Because of the chilly fall weather we had this past weekend, the girls opted to stay indoors as they got over yet another head cold.  Their time spent inside was filled with tuning into the Disney Channel to watch the "I am a Princess" weekend special, I spoke of on Friday, as well as helping me watch and review upcoming DVD releases, including "Sofia the First: Ready To Be a Princess."  If you little girls, then you have probably seen the hit animated series that was added to Disney Junior's lineup last year, "Sofia the First."  My girls and I have been watching this fun show about a common girl who become a princess when her mother marries the prince.  But, her transition into the princess role is not easy.  She is met by a step-sister, who is jealous and also doesn't want to share the princess title.  As for Sofia, she loves everything involved in being a princess -- the pretty dresses, parties, etc.

Each fun-filled episode of Sofia the First, follow Sofia as she assumes the new role of princess, and the different obstacles that are put in her way.  While every girl dreams of becoming a princess, Sofia learns that there is more to being a princess than dressing and acting the part.  Sofia will learn about herself, as well as about things like friendship, kindness, helping others and being the best you can be, while not giving up on your dreams.  Every little girl is a princess, and will fall in love with Sofia, if they haven't already.  My daughters loved this new DVD release, which includes the following five episodes for the hit Disney Junior series, including a special appearance from Jasmine of the classic Disney movie, Aladdin:

  1. A Royal Mess
  2. The Shy Princess
  3. Blue Ribbon Bunny
  4. The Princess Test
  5. Two to Tango
In addition to these episodes to watch, you will also receive a fun dress-up play set with wardrobe, which is included inside the DVD case.  

While Arabella was to young to play with this play set, Savannah had a blast sitting at the kitchen table yesterday dressing the Sofia cut out up in different outfits.  I was surprised to see this play set included with the DVD, as it could have been sold separately and been a hit with Sofia the First fans.  But, instead, this play set will just add to the fun your little princess with have, when you share this new DVD release with her.  So, make sure you either pre-order this DVD now, or pick up when it becomes available in stores on September 17th.
