Yes, you read the title correctly and, no, you don't have the wrong blog. As the mommy of two little guys, I usually decline offers to review DVDs that are marketed toward girls. However, a little boy I watch loves to dance. He loves the episode of Elmo's World when Elmo tap dances and he just plain loves to shake his booty (and is so cute when he does it). So when I had the offer to review "Fairy Dancing," I said sure, because he doesn't often get to watch what he wants to at our house (Moose makes most of those decisions and everyone else just follows along).
The Fairies is an Australian show; the DVD case says it's a smash sensation. I would say the age would be geared toward 4-8. The two main gals in the show, Harmony and Rhapsody, are teenagers who are fairies. This episode takes the audience through one of their days when they are in a dancing mood. The girls do different types of dancing with some other friends: an elf, some younger fairies, and a few others I can't recall off the top of my head.
The friends tap dance, tango, country line dance, ballet. They also sing and have one strange scene that didn't quite fit into the episode (I don't think) where they are swinging and singing for about 5 minutes. I thought that was weird. Even our friend J asked me why they were singing (sharp as a whip that boy). Um, I don't know.
Otherwise, this is a cute little video. I love the Australian accents, of course. Probably not a show I would have watched growing up; I was more into Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Sonic the Hedgehog, but I wasn't a girlie girl. If you have a little gal who likes singing and dancing and fairies and pretties, this is for her.
