I received Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy DVD in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
I don’t know how the remote works. There’s a lot of moving parts before I even get to where I need to be to make a selection. I’ve pretty much just surrendered to watching whatever is on the television when I turn on the TV. This is how I came to discover Sofia the First.
On that fateful day, Miss M bounced in the room asking what I was watching and I announced, Sofia the First! Together we sat on the couch watching the action and loving every minute of it. That’s right, I said it. We love Sofia the First.
If you haven’t seen the show, it’s a hit on Disney Junior. The series follows the adventures of Princess Sofia, a young girl who is learning how to adjust to royal life after her mom marries the king. Along the way, she discovers that the inner character of kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty and grace is what makes a real princess. The series holds the all-time record for the top two cable TV telecasts among kids 2-5. The November 23, 2014 television premiere of “Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess” delivered the series’ #2 telecast of all time and the #1 evening preschool telecast year to date.
Now we’re enjoying Sofia the First: The Curse of the Princess Ivy DVD. I know how the DVD player works on my laptop! It’s intense. We learn the Amulet of Avalor is magical, right before Amber snatches it while Sofia is sleeping. This unwittingly unleases a curse that summons the evil Princess Ivy, who is prepared to take the crown, destroy the amulet and take the entire kingdom from color to black-and-white!
There is a flying dragon, and special guest Rapunzel, who begin a daring quest to defeat Princess Ivy, break the curse and save Enchancia!
It’s a DVD that exposes how love, trust and putting others before one’s self can make anything happen!
Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Poison Ivy arrives in stores nationwide February 24th.
Sofia the First is one of my families favorites because there is always a lesson to be taught in each show. The kids learn from Sofia and actually learn life lessons which is something that we need more of on TV. Sofia the First The Curse of Princess Ivy is a must own for kids everywhere on February 24th!
I also love the all star cast of voices:
