Barbie A Fashion Fairytale DVD Review

Title: Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale

My Review:

When I was a little girl, Barbie was hands down my favorite toy. I would literally play for hours and had so many fun adventures with my “friends.” I am so excited that my own little girl is just starting to play with her own Barbie dolls and I love to watch her use her imagination.

Hannah and I were very excited to watch the new Barbie movie on DVD, Barbie-A Fashion Fairytale. My boys were not quite as excited initially with my family movie night selection but I was very surprised that they ended up enjoying it almost as much as my daughter did.

As a mother, I really liked that A Fashion Fairytale promotes hard work and a sense of one believing in yourself to make your dreams come true. I believe this is an especially important lesson to teach our daughters. In this adventure, Barbie faces adversity and decides to visit her aunt, a fashion designer in Paris. When her aunt’s shop is threatened by someone stealing designs, Barbie and her friends decide to create a line of clothing leading up to a spectacular runway show. The addition of the Magical “Flairies” adds a fun touch of humor and magic to the story.

Barbie, A Fashion Fairytale is targeted for children ages 7 and up and is available at leading retailers nationwide on September 14th, 2010.  For more information about this DVD or other Barbie products visit www.barbie.com.
