My Thoughts:
My daughter is a huge Angelina Ballerina fan.   She has all the books, movies and toys that have come out since they revamped the Angelina Ballerina series.  Now, we received this DVD last week, but have already watched it over 50 times.  I am not exaggerating.  If you put the DVD on, I can recite the entire episode.  Each morning when my daughter gets up , she watches Sweet Valentine in its entirety, while having breakfast, and then while I tend to her new baby sister.  As soon as she sees the HIT Entertainment logo come on the screen, she breaks out into song and dance.  I remember I was a  fan of Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony growing up, and got excited like she did when a new movie came out.  But, I don’t remember watching it over and over again.  Thanks to mom, however, she informed me that she had to buy duplicate copies of the movies as I would play them so much that I wore them out.
I have been watching Angelina Ballerina with my daughter for the past several months, and have to say that this DVD is one of our favorites.  Each episode revolves around Valentine’s Day.  Our two favorite episodes were “Angelina’s Secret Valentine” and “Angelina and the Hearts on Ice.”  In “Angelina’s Secret Valentine,” watch while Angelina receives a valentine from a secret admirer, and goes on a search to find out who it is.  Then, in “Angelina and the Hearts on Ice” episode, Angelina and Alice practice their ice routine that they will perform during the annual hockey match.  They ask Marco to sing a song, while they perform.  At first, he is reluctant as he doesn’t want to be an embarrassment, singing a sappy love song at a hockey game.  But, because he made a promise to help, he goes through with it.  And, when the performance is over and he hears the crowd cheer with excitement, he is happy he sang the song.
What I love most about the Angelina Ballerina series is that it teaches children about friendship and important life lessons.  In addition, children will develop a love for dance, as the songs and music is so catchy and makes you want to get up and dance.  My daughter goes crazy at the Angelina Ballerina theme song, and even spins around.  Other shows we watch have catchy songs, but none get her moving and grooving like Angelina Ballerina does. You don’t have to be a girl to like this series.  With the inclusion of Marco and AZ, two male characters in the show, boys will like watching Angelina Ballerina just as much as girls.
So, if you have an Angelina Ballerina fan in your house, or are looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day gift to give your little ones, why not consider picking up a copy of Sweet Valentine on DVD today?
