Angelina Ballerina DVD : Pop Star Girls

You'll notice over the next couple of weeks that there's a bit of an Angelina Ballerina theme going on here at The Madhouse, much to 6-year-old Juliette's delight. We recently received the dancing mouse's latest DVD to review, as well as a lovely playset and I've just been offered some TV character-branded spring water for kids, including Angelina Ballerina.

As you can see, when the DVD arrived, Juliette settled down for "a TV sleep" - ie she won't actually nap but she will have a quiet rest in front of her favourite programmes when she's overtired - with her thumb in her mouth and her little Angelina Ballerina playset figures snuggled up with her !

The DVD - called Pop Star Girls - lasts for 60 minutes and contains 5 episodes : Angelina and the Broken Fiddle ; Angelina and the Giant ; Angelina's Rock Band ; Angelina and the New Music Store ; Angelina's Hip Hop Boys Show. It actually reminded me a bit of a cross between Angelina Ballerina and Zingzillas because the emphasis was less on ballet and more on different styles of music, musical instruments and dancing.

Each story has a moral to it, for example owning up when you've done something naughty or understanding the value of teamwork. But above all, it's a lot of fun. After about half an hour's quiet viewing snuggled up on the bed next to me (with me on my laptop !), Juliette suddenly sprang to life and starting dancing around the room like Angelina saying "Look Mummy !"

That says it all really ! It's perfect viewing for any little girl.

    1. Hi Kara,

      We received them for review - They were available at Argos and amazon but I have no idea if they're still on sale now, it was quite some time ago
