Barbie & Tchaikovsky

Bet you never thought you'd hear those two names in the same sentence. ; )
Did you know that Barbie could inspire a love of classical music? Princess has just about every Barbie movie ever made. One of her favorites (okay, it's Barbie, they're all her favorites) is Barbie in the Nutcracker. Through this movie, Princess has developed a love for Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker music. At the last Scholastic warehouse sale, Princess and I found Nutcracker: The Music Game for the bargain price of $5.

Princess is having a blast working her way through the game, while enjoying the beautiful Nutcracker music. Me? I have to say that I'm having fun with it, too. My favorite part of the game is figuring out which instruments are used in each piece. The box says it's for ages 4-104. The 6 year old and the 45 year old both love it!
