Sofia The First is going on another adventure with her step-sister Amber in “The Curse of Princess Ivy”, this was a decent special episode. It’s highlight was easily the special guest Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore from Disney’s “Tangled”). This show amazes me how it is able to steal my 2.5 year old’s attention until the end credits when she says “Play Sofia again?” Additional episodes included on this DVD are “The Amulet of Avalor”, “Princess Butterfly” and “The Emerald Key”. Also as an added bonus, you will get a very cute butterfly necklace that gets color when exposed in the sunlight. A must have for any “Sofia the First” fan!

Official Premise: The revelation of a spellbinding secret sets in motion the most thrilling adventure in the history of Sofia the First! After learning that the Amulet of Avalor is magical, Amber snatches it while Sofia is sleeping. Unfortunately, she unwittingly unleashes a curse that summons evil Princess Ivy, who threatens to destroy the amulet, seize the crown and turn the entire kingdom black-and-white! Amber and Sofia soar through the skies on a flying dragon – aided by special guest Rapunzel – as they embark on a daring quest to defeat Ivy, break the curse and save Enchancia. Packed with high-flying excitement, plus three more song-filled episodes, The Curse of Princess Ivy shows how love, trust, and unselfishly putting others’ needs first can truly work magic!

What little girl doesn’t love Sofia the First. This show started when my daughter was about 6 months old and I knew that Disney Junior was going to make a nice mark on the Disney Princess market with this character. Fast forward about two years and this show is easily one of Disney Junior’s biggest entities, especially with the girls. The books are just as amazing as the show itself. They showcase some of the series’ biggest episodes usually featuring a classic Disney Princess.

“Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy” Official Premise: Sofia faces grave danger when she faces Princess Ivy, a once exiled princess who is determined to take over Enchancia and turn the whole kingdom black and white. Sofia and Amber must work together to save their family and their kingdom!

Like I mentioned, this story is eventually going to make it to the small screen as a Disney Junior movie event airing Fall 2014. It features the now classic Disney Princess Rapunzel from “Tangled”. This book like previous Sofia books feature some really beautifully illustrated artwork within this hardcover jacketed picture book. The book like past in the series also includes a downloadable Disney eBook of the story for your iPad/iPhone. Can’t wait to see what they come up with next. There are plenty of great Disney Princess still left!
