Twinkle Toes: The infamous light-up footwear for girls, made by Sketchers. My daughters are huge fans of the shoes and can be seen wearing them daily. So, when a copy of Twinkle Toes The Movie landed on our doorstep, the excitement was almost too much to bear.
I wanted to save the DVD to watch on the weekend, but that wasn’t happening. It had to be watched at that moment, don’t even wait until the popcorn is done. They really were that excited.
Join Grace “Twinkle Toes” Hastings as she headlines her first-ever, full-length feature film, Twinkle Toes: The Movie. The sweet and adorable Twinkle Toes character that girls have come to know and love overcomes her most secret fears and learns to celebrate her individuality with energy, pizzazz and super-cute shoes! Filled with music, friendship, laughter and heart, parents and their daughters will want to watch Twinkle Toes: The Movie again and again. This charming story of courage, self-expression and finding the “sparkle” within will inspire Twinkle Toes’ legions of fashionista friends to develop their own talent and achieve their dreams.
You couldn’t break the stare to the screen when this movie was on, there wasn’t a moment that didn’t have my girls’ attention. After it was over, they danced around the house and enacted dance scenes from the film.
I asked my oldest daughter why she liked Twinkle Toes: The Movie so much, and I got: “the dancing and music was the best”. When I tried probing WHY that made it a great movie to watch she simply said, “cuz those are the things I like, Mom”. I guess more of an explanation isn’t needed. Twinkle Toe shoes, dancing, music … right up any girls’ alley.
The story centers around Grace “Twinkle Toes” Hastings, who has a big secret: she gets terrible stage fright in front of anyone except her fluffy friend Walter. As Grace works to overcome her fears, she makes some super-cool friends at her new school and discovers that it’s OK to be herself and shine!
It’s always the hope that positive messages like this sink in as much as the stylish attire and dance moves. Wondering if it did, I then asked Isabelle about this storyline and what Grace went through in the film. She was able to tell me about her fright, and how being yourself and believing that you ‘can’ is important. Message = success!!
