My preschooler feel in love with Princess Elena from the very first time she saw an episode. She especially loves those Jaquins and we own them in plush form to cuddle here at home. This is the DVD to own to see how it all began. Her story is exciting, she is brave and really shows off that women can do anything! For those fans of Elena this is a must-see DVD and for those just curious about this new princess I would still suggest picking up this DVD because it is a great place to start. This new princess has quickly become a fan favorite….and just in my daughter’s preschool class I can already see the love for her.
