Check out the cute photo of my youngest daughter in a Belle costume. Disney gave me the gown and accessories to celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast. My oldest daughter has seen the movie three times already. She really loves it. I really like the film too. It’s a love story and a musical with wonderful songs. I also like the messages in the movie: inner beauty is more important than how you look on the outside, the right person can bring out the best in you, and a woman doesn’t have to settle for just any man to be happy. The film is excellent and I think everyone will enjoy it. Beauty and the Beast is available now on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital HD. Note: Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures (WDSMP) sent me a Blu-ray to review on my dad blog. As always, the opinions expressed are mine and I am not obligated to write a positive review.
The kids and I watched Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection yesterday. Disney Junior sent me the DVD for review on my dad blog. The DVD is a collection of animated stories (five episodes plus a bonus one). All the stories center around Princess Sofia, and in some of the episodes a Disney princess makes an appearance. The princesses making appearances include Mulan, Jasmine, Belle and Tiana (from the Princess and the Frog). Even though most of the main characters are girls, I think Dear Sofia will also appeal to little boys too. Dear Sofia: A Royal Collection is available now on DVD. BTW, for a limited time, the DVD includes a Sophia Themed Stationary Kit.
