A magical necklace, talking to animals, riding flying carpets, chatting with a princess and a party with dancing elephants – this is just one day in the life of Sofia The First. Sofia is a girl who quickly became a princess overnight when her mom married the king. She is adjusting to life as a princess and learning important life lessons along the way. Not only is she learning how to be a princess but she’s teaching her friends and family more about what it truly means to be a good person that people admire. Making friends with those that others may overlook, reaching out to help someone in need, trying new adventures with a positive attitude – these are all great lessons that your children can learn from Sofia The First – Ready To Be A Princess.
We have been fans of Sofia The First since it debuted on Disney Junior Canada in November 2012. Although we don’t have a young princess in our home, we do have a young prince who loves watching the flying horse derby, dancing trolls and the fun stories that Sofia brings into our home.
Sofia The First – Ready To Be A Princess:
This DVD (set to be released September 17, 2013) includes five episodes:
- A Royal Mess
- The Shy Princess
- Blue Ribbon Bunny
- The Princess Test
- Two to Tangu
In the Two to Tangu episode, Sofia & her sister Amber meet Princess Jasmine when their flying carpet takes them on a wild ride on their way to what’s sure to be an unbelievable party. A fun idea for watching this episode at home would be to enjoy a Royal picnic on your own magic carpet at home. Your picnic could include items like bite-sized sandwiches, chocolate covered fruit and juice in fancy plastic cups.
This special DVD edition also comes with a paper Sofia The First Dress-Up Play Set with Wardrobe! Here are some additional princess activities that your children are sure to enjoy.
