Any parent of young girls is probably familiar with Sofia the First. Teagan only recently discovered Sofia, so she’d never seen The Floating Palace movie until it arrived at our house last week. She has seen The Little Mermaid though, and she was pretty excited when she saw Ariel on the cover. We watched it together, and even though Ariel isn’t actually in the movie that much, Teagan still watched quietly through the whole thing. There is no better testament to the power of Sofia than the fact that I didn’t have to tell her to stop jumping on the couch. Not once!
“Do YOU believe in mermaids? You will – when you set sail on a magical full-length adventure under the sea with Sofia the First! After Sofia helps a little mermaid named Oona, Sofia’s amulet grants her the power to transform into a mermaid and visit her new friend’s secret underwater kingdom. But when Cedric (disguised as a sea monster) plots to steal Oona’s enchanted Mermaid Comb, danger surfaces for both worlds. With a little help from special guest, Princess Ariel, Sofia embarks on an adventure to rescue Oona and prevent a typhoon before it’s too late. Overflowing with oceans of song-filled fun – plus three more exciting episodes – The Floating Palace proves that when families and friends work together, they can weather any storm and save the day!”
We’ve already watched the movie twice through, and I’m pretty sure we’ll be watching it a few more times. The DVD comes with three additional Sofia the First episodes: “Tri-Kingdom Picnic”, “Finding Clover”, and “Make Way for Miss Nettle”, as well as two free Sofia friendship bracelets inside the case. As a mom of two, I’m so thankful there were two bracelets – one for Teagan and one for Keira!
