When Emmy is really poorly it is the only time she will sit still and snuggle on the sofa. All she wants to do is watch TV and who can blame her when your that poorly Mummy will let you do whatever you want to do!
We took this opportunity to watch some DVD’s we have recently been sent.
First up was The rise of the Guardians which was released on DVD on 25th March
I thought Emmy would enjoy this and mostly she did however she was a little scared in parts and asked to stop watching this, by this point she then fell asleep so I got to finish watching. I would say it was aimed at slightly older children.
This film sees Jack Frost, the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy and the sandman coming together for the very first time. When the evil Pitch (who Emmy was scared of) threatens to take over the world it is up to the hero characters to save the hopes and dreams of the children from being stolen.
This dreamworks animated film has an all star cast, featuring the voices of Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hug Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. It is a funny adventure film which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
We have since watched this again and Emmy enjoyed it although did hold my hand in places but was laughing instead of hiding behind a cushion.
We then went on to watch Prima Princessa presents Sleeping Beauty, this is the second Prima Princessa DVD, following on from the Nutcracker.
You rejoin Prima Princessa to visit excepts of the Ballet “The Sleeping Beauty” which is performed live by The Royal Ballet in London. In between watching the experts do their thing you are taught simple to follow ballet steps which encourages children to get involved, move and try for themselves.
Emmy loves dancing so obviously this was a huge hit with her, she couldn’t join in while so ill however we have since watched again and she has been twirling and pointing and “being a princess Mummy!”
Priced at £5.99 this is a lovely introduction to ballet for young girls (although I do know one or two boys who would love to join in too).
