We’ve seen the creation of clothing lines inspired by film, like Banana Republic’s Mad Men Collection. But Skechers has gone in the opposite direction, taking its best-selling kids footwear line called Twinkles Toes (colorful sneakers with sequins on the toecap) and using that as inspiration for an animated, feature-length film about Grace “Twinkle Toes” Hastings, a girl who works to overcome her stage fright after she get accepted to a dance academy.
Twinkle Toes – The Movie, by Universal Studios Home Entertainment, will make its DVD debut tomorrow, July 31, and The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano will be hosting a free launch party on Saturday, August 4 from 12–4pm with free activities and entertainment for the kids. Meet in the Grand Court to color with glitter crayons, get temporary tattoos, bedazzle a craft, and decorate pink tote bags with jewels. Students from Power House of Dance will perform dance routines at noon and 2pm, and afterward your own kids can get a free dance lesson.
Register at the event for the chance to win a Twinkle Toes prize package from Skechers, and from home you can play online games at twinkletoesusa.com and even watch a few clips from the DVD at universalstudiosentertainment.com.
