About the movie:
Inspired by the best-selling SKECHERS Kids footwear line, Twinkle Toes: The Movie is a sparkly, fun-filled adventure that will make audiences want to get up and dance! Grace "Twinkle Toes" Hastings has a big secret: she gets terrible stage fright in front of anyone except her fluffy friend Walter. As Grace works to overcome her fears, and makes some super-cool friends at her new school, she discovers that it's OK to be herself and shine! Twinkle Toes: The Movie debuts exclusively on DVD on July 31, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Watch trailer here.

  • Create and take home intriguing Truffula Trees, just like those featured in the movie, and a Lorax mustache to commemorate the charming creature.
  • Interact with vibrant costumed characters from The Lorax during an entertaining meet-and-greet session
  • Visit a viewing area to watch The Lorax movie trailer, learn how to draw the Lorax through a bonus feature on the Blu-ray™/DVD, and hear about how the Lorax speaks for the trees.
  • Pose for a fascinating photo next to Lorax-themed standees, capturing the fun of the unique event

Kids will also have the chance to participate in interactive offerings focused on preserving the environment and celebrating The Lorax’s meaningful plot.
