Angelina Ballerina returns with a five episode collection titled Spring Fling. The release features episodes that promote imagination, ingenuity, compassion, and creativity. The release also features two bonus features that include a fun dress-up game as well as a music video that will inspire your young one to get up and dance.
Even though my kids are a bit old for Angelina Ballerina it’s not hard to imagine that they would have loved this show back when they were kids. The anthropomorphic features of Angelina and her friends and family are easily accessible to kids who can see themselves in the characters, who I might point out have their own distinctions including nationalities as well as abilities and handicaps.
The disc runs a modest 61 minutes, just enough for the kids to enjoy down time, but not more then any parent would like to be stuck waiting for a DVD to end. In all honesty the show isn’t bad, I know I was reminded of being locked down during bad weather and having to come up with fun and clever ways to occupy my time. As a parent you also find the compassionate way the characters look out for one another inspiring and know that this is exactly the kind of example you’d want your children to learn from.
It was a cute little release that I think could work for either boys or girls. It has characters of both sexes and their adventures never really dip to far into one or the others respective territories. A great gift for a young child who enjoys the show.
