Twinkle Toes is a Direct to Video animated film released in 2011.

It's a Merchandise-Driven cartoon made to advertise those kid's shoes with the twinkling lights. Specifically, Skechers' then-new "Twinkle Toes" brand of such shoes. Yes, it wasn’t even born from a toyline. Just shoes.

Despite its rather cynical origin story, it's a cute and quirky film in its own right. It centers around a girl named Grace who has recently gained entry into a high school of the performing arts, despite the fact that she can only dance when she's sure that no one is watching. In preparation for her first day at school, she glues flashing lights to her shoes, gaining her the nickname "Twinkle Toes".


It was followed by a 2016 sequel, Twinkle Toes Lights Up New York.
