Imogen still watches and enjoys her Prima Princessa presents The Nutcracker DVD that she received at the end of last year, so she was highly excited when the latest UK release arrived from Prima Princessa “Sleeping Beauty”. Imogen loves the story of The Nutcracker but with two of her favourite things ballet and a princess and I knew we’d be on to a winner!
The DVD has the same format as The Nutcracker showing excerpts of Sleeping Beauty performed by The Royal Ballet with narration by Prima Princessa (an animated fairy). There are also lots of Prima Princessa Ballerinas that join in the fun, frilled up to the max in some fabulous girly costumes. There are also mini ballet demonstrations on different ballet steps by the students of the School of American Ballet, something Imogen finds very useful and follows very seriously.
She loves getting dressed up in her ballet shoes and sometimes a tiara and joining in usually making a grand entrance from the hall.
Both Prima Princessa DVD’s have really helped Imogen with her ballet and seeing as she has her first exam coming up in the Autumn she need all the help she can get!
Prima Princessa Presents Sleeping Beauty is also packed with loads of extras including lots of craft activities which Imogen was keen to do over the Easter holidays. At £5.99 (available from Amazon) it’s a lovely treat that is bound to thrill and entertain over and over again.

The Sweetpeace uses innovative, patented motion technology to simulate a mother’s real soothing movements to help relax little ones. The motion moves little ones from side to side, as parents do, as opposed to just back and front making baby feel especially comforted. As well as featuring six speeds, the two speed vibrations tailor the movement to help with all moods over, from lively to sleepy.
Baby can be kept amused with an MP3 plug-in connection ready to play favourite songs, along with the pre-loaded high quality sounds, this unique audio experience promotes early learning, as well as a baby tray with mirror, teether and soft toy to help baby entertained.
The Sweetpeace is very flexible so can be used as a soother or standalone rocker. The stand can be used with Graco 0+ car seats (Logico S and Junior Baby) so parents can move baby easily without any hassle. It also features a handy timer to switch off the vibration and sounds so that’s one less thing to worry about during this busy period.

Ernie features a clicking ladder, realistic engine sounds, opening cab and tailgate and a comes with Firefighter Jack and a safety barrier.
” Ernie’s the name and putting out fires is the game! We’re all very organised here in WOW Town, but when there is an accident I’m always first on the scene to put out the fire and save the public. In my spare time I like to chill out with my good friends Robin, Casey and Sidney; we hang out together playing in town, but we all know that when there’s an emergency play time’s over and it’s all hands on deck!
I use my powerful motor to get to the scene quickly and my click and turn ladder helps my fire fighter driver, Jack, fight any blaze. Jack’s hand opens the back door to reveal the emergency barrier so everyone knows Ernie is ready to save the day!”
