If you’re not familiar with this series, “Sofia the First” is set in the storybook world of Enchancia and tells the story of Princess Sofia, an adventurous little girl who is learning how to adjust to royal life after her mom marries the king and she becomes a princess overnight. Sofia quickly discovers that looking like a princess isn’t all that difficult, but possessing the characteristics of a true princess – honesty, loyalty, courage, independence, compassion and grace – is what makes one truly royal.

While my little princess at age 9 is getting a bit too old for this show, my surprise fan is my 4 year old son. He has a serious crush on Sophia and we watch this series regularly. We had seen the episodes on TV, but it was great to have them all in one place and to see them together. Disney has done a nice job crafting a more practical and modern day princess in my opinion with Sophia. I love that she has a step-family, has insecurities and problems to overcome. While some of her problems are of course unrealistic because it’s a cartoon, it does teach kids that it’s OK to be afraid or to worry, and that you just have to stand up to your fears and be strong.
