Prima Princessa Presents Sleeping Beauty - GIVEAWAY


Those lovely ladies at Prima Princessa asked if I'd like to review their latest offering and as Missy is still obsessed with everything dance and Mr Right and I recently went to see (and loved) Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty it was a no brainer.
We previously reviewed The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty is very much in the same vein featuring excerpts from a real live performance spliced with simple explanations of the story, just enough to hold a three year old's attention and help her understand what's going on, although she's rather familiar with this tale as it's one of her favourite bedtime stories at the moment.

Again this is an American DVD that has been remastered for the UK, which pleases me greatly as there are hardly any American accents to be heard, something I'm finding it increasingly difficult to avoid with our regular TV and DVD viewing.

An animated fairy (Prima Princessa) guides you through the performance and through some simple ballet steps, which Missy tried to emulate.  Each step is repeated a couple of times which saved my rewind trigger finger plus I think children find repetition an aid to learning.  Missy found the way that some of the steps are reiterated by animals in nature hilarious, our particular favourite this time round is the little dog doing his very best releve
There are some lovely sequences of the ballet along with the instantly recognisable classical music by Tchaikovsky and Missy danced her little socks off with butterfly wings natch

This DVD would make an ideal gift for the little ballerina wannabe in your life and is available from Amazon here or, if you'd prefer, the lovely people at Prima Princessa are putting a copy up for grabs, all you have to do to be in with a shout of winning it is be a UK resident aged 18 or over and follow the Rafflecopter instructions below but be quick as the giveaway closes at midnight on Sunday 14th April 2013.
