My Thoughts:

This was one DVD my girls had been hoping I would get for review, as they are huge Shimmer and Shine fans.  If you have young children who watch Nick Jr., then you have probably sat for an episode (or more) of Shimmer and Shine.  This popular animated series follows two genie sisters in training, Shimmer and Shine.  A young girl, Leah, is the human that these two genies are assigned, and make her wishes come true.  But, like I said, these genies are learning, so you should expect some (or most) wishes to be carried out wrong. The genies learn from their mistakes and never give up, and I love the theme of friendship as well in this series.

When my girls saw this DVD arrive in the mail, they couldn't wait to watch it.  Even though they have already seen the three episodes that make up this new release, they were ready to watch them again for the upteenth time. :-)   This is one of those shows that the girls could watch an episode over and over without getting bored, as it such an interesting and fun show.

Here are the episodes that you will find on this new DVD release, available in stores and online today...
Shimmer and Shine: Welcome to Zahramay Falls includes the following episodes:
  • Welcome to Zahramay Falls - Shimmer and Shine receive a special Green Burst Gem from Princess Samira and bring it into the human world. The evil sorceress Zeta uses magic to steal the gem, but her spell goes awry and pulls Leah and Zac intoZahramay Falls.  
  • First Wish (Double Episode) - Leah wins a genie bottle pendant at a carnival and is surprised to find that her prize comes with a bonus - Shimmer and Shine.  Leah wishes for a polka-dotted elephant and things get complicated when Leah uses her remaining wishes to keep Zac from seeing the elephant. In the end, the girls create a new carnival attraction and learn that they can overcome any obstacle by working together.
  • Happy Wishaversary - It's time for Shimmer, Shine and Leah to celebrate their Wishaversary! In honor of their Wishaversary, Shimmer and Shine make Leah the perfect gift-a bracelet with a magical touch. When Leah puts the bracelet on, she can float like a genie. However, when Zac shows up to play a video game with Leah, Rocket gets a hold of the bracelet and starts to float. Leah must play the video game with Zac, while also working with the genies to retrieve the magical bracelet before Zac sees Rocket floating away. 
My girls are already putting together their wish lists for Santa and Shimmer and Shine toys and clothes are top on their list.  I see this DVD being a great stocking stuffer idea.  It would even make a great back-to-school movie night.  This is one DVD that every Shimmer and Shine fan will want to have, especially for the popular Welcome to Zahramay Falls episode.  This was one episode that had my girls' eyes glued to the screen, and one they talked about with their friends for days later.
