Award-winning children’s dance school, babyballet® has embarked on a new magical adventure, with its first ever book release! Entitled Twinkle and Teddy in the Rainforest, the interactive story book features the much-loved babyballet® mascots going on their very own adventure through the rainforest. The story book takes your little star on that very same journey, meeting animals along the way and giving the reader the chance to dance with Twinkle and Teddy at home to three well-loved babyballet® songs!
Through exploring the rainforest, the educational elements of the story give children fun facts and the chance to download and complete their own animal activity sheets! And with three scannable QR codes in the book, readers are given the chance to ‘tune into’ the interactive elements of the story, so they can sing and dance along with Twinkle and Teddy at home.
With beautiful illustrations to accompany, the story has been written by schoolteacher, Sue Parsons, who ensured the educational value of the experience is as great as the entertainment.
“It's so exciting to have released this book! What a wonderful opportunity for babyballet®'s dancers to further explore the babyballet world and its characters using both educational and creative stimuli.
“babyballet® stars will love joining Twinkle, Teddy and their friends, Flutterstar the Fairy, Chuck the Cowboy, Grandad Jack and Kitty the Car on their adventures at the Castle in the Sky and beyond!”
This book release is an important step in the evolution of babyballet®, as the children’s dance franchise business encourages more children around the world to dance and express their creativity.
Claire O’Connor, the founder of babyballet, said,
“This is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for babyballet®. By releasing this book, more children around the world will have the opportunity of being introduced to our characters and enjoy the benefits of our fun-loving active brand. And with the story taking place in an exciting setting, children can learn about new places and animals while having lots of fun! We can't wait to see our magical world of babyballet® come to life in this book and to see how it will inspire and educate existing and new babyballet® stars around the globe!"
Twinkle and Teddy in the Rainforest has launched now exclusively in the UK with lots of babyballet® stars taking part in the debut celebrations of the book launch during Children’s Book Week. Those celebrations gave our little stars the opportunity to dance to ‘Walking in the Jungle’ and hear about the amazing adventure Twinkle and Teddy will be taking them on! With the release of Twinkle and Teddy in the Rainforest marking an exciting time for babyballet® nationwide, now is the perfect time to get involved!

It’s my 8th year as a babyballet franchisee and I still absolutely love it! The magic of teaching preschoolers their first steps combined with the flexibility of being my own boss, all the while knowing that I have the backing and support of such a fantastic brand, is just the best feeling ever.Miss Leanne babyballet® Franchisee, Livingston and Falkirk
It is a whole year since I started my babyballet franchise and it has been the fastest year of my life! I’ve absolutely loved it and can’t wait to see what each year brings. This was easily the best decision I’ve ever made. Thank you so much to the head office team for welcoming me to the family with open arms, and to Claire for being such a fab big boss and inspiration.Miss Suzy babyballet® Franchisee, Worsley and Walkden
The training to join the babyballet franchise family was fantastic. During the initial training course, every aspect of running a business was covered – from office and admin management through to running the dance classes themselves. From day one I felt like part of the babyballet team and nothing was too much trouble – no matter how many questions or queries I had!Miss Jessie babyballet® Franchisee, Dartford, Bexley and Bromley
