**Sony Home Video provided me with some of the materials I used in this Blog Post/Giveaway. The opinions I share are my own.**  We are not much of a live television family, however we do love our DVDs and especially children’s movies. Last week we added a new fairy tale to our selection. My Princess could not be more thrilled, and AppleBlossom the superhero girl is delighted as well. Goodness, even the Rascal and Enginerd enjoyed watching this one!
