Announcing the Return of Princess Penelope!⁣

Princess Penelope was sitting in her Peacock Castle when she heard that everyone missed her. Penelope thought carefully about how she could safely bring joy and happiness to her friends. Then the idea appeared in her head like a lightbulb, she could livestream her children’s show!⁣

Tune in every Monday at 10am starting April 27th on our Facebook page to sing and dance with Penelope, Princess of the Peacocks. Be sure to check our Facebook the night before for any changes!⁣
