My Thoughts:

What a way to get excited about the spring and warmer weather than watching this upcoming DVD release featuring everyone's favorite ballerina, Angelina Ballerina.  All five episodes included on this DVD will have little ones up and dancing around, as they pretend to be Angelina, Gracie, AZ, Vicki, Alice and even her little sister Polly.  

Even though none of the five episodes are new --- they have already aired on television -- fans of Angelina Ballerina will not mind, as they have probably seen them countless times already. :-) Each episode has Angelina and her friends working together, learning new dance move, and having fun.  

Bella's favorite of the five episodes was  Angelina’s Trick-or-Treat Feat," in which Angelina and her friends learned that you don't need fancy costumes to play a particular character.  Instead, through their own creativity and dance moves, they were able to express their characters through dance.  As for Savannah, she enjoyed Angelina’s Spring Fling," Angelina and her friends are in the same boat as my girls -- they are tired of the snow outside, and can't wait for it to go away so that they can get outside and enjoy playing in the back yard, and the warmer weather.  In this fun-filled episode Angelina and her friends experience spring traditions from around the world.  Not only do they have fun learning about different cultures, but they also forget about winter and the snow outside.  Who knew that staying indoors on a snow day could be so much fun?  Leave it to Angelina and her friends to show your little ones how to have fun and learn new things with this upcoming DVD release.

In celebration of National Dance Week, along with the new "Spring Fling" DVD, I was also sent a fun Angelina Ballerina Sticker Stories book for the girls to enjoy.  I don't know about your kids, but both of my girls can't get enough of stickers.  They have sticker books and even a wall in the playroom that has become a shrine to their favorite stickers.  So, when they saw this sticker book, which is filled with tons of Angelina Ballerina stickers, they were so excited, and couldn't wait to fill the pages with the stickers, and have me read the stories to them.  In an afternoon's time...well, actually 30 minutes, the stickers filled the pages of this sticker story book, and we had read the stories from cover to cover a handful of times. :-)  My girls kept asking when we would be getting more books like this as they were really fun to do.  I guess I will have to keep my eyes out for now on, as it kept them busy, and they continue to pull the book from the shelf to look at the stickers and have me read the stories to them, that is when they are not watching Angelina Ballerina: The Next Steps on PBS Kids and Sprout (check local listings).
