Mia and Me: Friends to the Rescue DVD Review

Disclosure: PBS Kids gave me a copy of this DVD free of charge. All opinions in my review are my own and I did not receive any other compensation. As in all my reviews I am providing links for your ease, but receive no compensation.

We are so excited in my house!! Today the newest Mia and Me: Friends to the Rescue is being released. We discovered Mia and Me just a couple of weeks ago thanks to PBS Kids. They sent us the first DVD, Mia and Me: Discover Centopia. Hazel watched it three times in two days. Needless to say she loves Mia and Me! Well this new DVD did not disappoint us either.

Like the first one, Friend to the Rescue has three episodes on it. The story is how a real girl, Mia, who has lost her parents and is at a boarding school in Florence, Italy, goes into a game. In the game she becomes an elf (but looks like a fairy to us). I love the fact that she complains that her elf dress is too short. In this game she has to help the prince of Centopia and other elves save the unicorns which are needed to keep Centopia alive. Each time Mia comes to Centopia her password changes. She has to translate the new password from the book, Centopia, which her father read to her as a young child. The passwords are oracles and give a hint as to what will happen or need to happen in that episode. In this DVD the viewer sees the birth of a unicorn and the death of a close friend. Throughout the DVD friends need to help each other and work together. At times Hazel gets a bit scared of the bad characters, but she really loves the show. The DVD extras are similar to the first with eight coloring pages.





I hope you will check out Mia and Me: Friends to the Rescue and enjoy it as much as we have!
