Children’s shows come and go, and often won’t go for far too long, but once in a while we get one that is actually rather fantastic, and Sofia the First is one that sets itself apart from the norm.

Not only is the show a lot of fun, but it explores some interesting themes and concepts in impressive ways. It also has the kind of voice cast that, despite the understanding that people are getting paid, makes you an even bigger fan of people you already thought were pretty cool. When Wayne Brady, Eric Stonestreet, Tim Gunn, and Ariel Winter show up to be part of a children’s show, you have to give them credit.

Well, a new DVD release is coming your way, and it includes the holiday episode plus four additional episodes (some of the best ones), and an ornament.

Check all the info below, and keep this one in mind.
