Olivia gets the chance of a lifetime in her all-new DVD, Olivia: Princess for a Day. Find out what happens when Olivia trades places with a visiting Princess and gets to live in a real castle, ride in a royal carriage and so much more.
Based on acclaimed author/illustrator Ian Falconer’s award-winning titles, Olivia follows a 6¾-year-old dynamo who believes she can do anything and sees every day as an opportunity to try new things. Her vivid imagination takes her on grand adventures, both real and fantasy, and like all children, her antics occasionally result in endearing misadventures. Olivia’s confidence and positive nature inspires kids everywhere to think boldly and follow their dreams.
Although Olivia’s adventures in her imagination are larger than life, the challenges in her day-to-day life are preschool size. Olivia’s unique ways of dealing with these challenges provide moments of fun and drama. She demonstrates how kids can use their imagination to work out what’s happening in their own world. Kids can relate to Olivia because she experiences the same daily trials and triumphs as they do. Every day is a “Big Day” for Olivia; her exuberance is contagious as she takes viewers along for the ride!
