Ballet Gifts for Girls

With Christmas just around the corner and the magical Nutcracker season underway we thought it was time to share some of our best ballet gifts for girls. We have some gorgeous dancewear, shoes, books and accessories which we hope you’ll love as much as we do.

Our Sparkling Ballet Tutu Skirt  is a beautiful addition to any girl’s ballet/dressing up wardrobe. It features one layer of pale pink tutu net and two overlapping top layers of hot pink tulle. Scattered with lots of little holograms that sparkle when they catch the light, it’s a skirt to have children pirouetting into their own magical world. It has a very soft stretch waist band in pale pink lycra, featuring the Twinklesteps logo in hot pink glitter text and Velcro fastening for easy fitting and comfort.

Wear with the Twinklesteps leotard, add some fairy wings, a butterfly wand and maybe some fairy dust and you are ready to practise your ballet and make some magic.

Our beautiful tutu skirts are made in the UK and at just £16.99 are really great value. Buy here.

Twinklesteps’ ballet bookTwinklesteps and the Disappearing Birdsong‘ is an action packed ballet adventure story. Twinklesteps the Ballerina Fairy uses her ballet skills and magical powers to defeat the Growling Goblin and help her friends. This highly illustrated little book can be shared with pre-readers or young readers up to 6+.

Find out all about the fairy who loves to dance and learn the names of some simple ballet steps as the story unfolds. One reader said: “Imaginatively written, beautifully illustrated and a perfect size for small hands to hold and treasure.” Buy here for just £5.45.

Our NEW sparkly light-up ballet shoes are a great present. The shoes light up when you dance and come with a little bag of jewels and stickers so you can decorate them too. A perfect present for all little fairy ballerinas who will love to see their ballet shoes sparkling when they dance, just like Twinklesteps’ shoes. They’re particularly magical when it’s dark! Sizes starting from as small as child size UK size 8/EU 26- adult size 5.5-6/EU39. Buy here.

The shoes come with attached elastics, so no worrying about having time to sew! We love these shoes – just pull the draw strings for a more snug fit – easy peasy! Buy here.

Our shop also sells Camisole leotards in a beautiful classic style, with a moderate scoop back and coloured in pale pink. You can buy both with or without  the Twinklesteps logo across the front in hot pink glitter text.

The leotard is smooth fitting in 92% cotton, 8% lycra with 100% cotton full front lining. Your child will feel like a ballerina in this beautiful classical style leotard which can be worn on its own or with the sparkly tutu skirt. Please check measurements in our Size page. Buy here.

We hope you enjoy browsing through our shop to see what inspiring dance goodies we have on offer. Don’t forget, if it’s too dark and cold to dance outside, you can practice your ballerina turns in the house 🙂

Have fun from the Twinklesteps team.
