My daughter is almost three, and she just adores this movie!! I was apprehensive at first, because I didn't think Barbie was a very good role model for girls, but I can see her image has changed since I was young. This is the first Barbie item I have bought for her, but I can see I will be buying more. The movie is very entertaining, good animation, and a good message (be loyal to friends, friends come before guys, and of course the female heroine is always my favourite type of movie for her to watch!) I have since bought Barbie Christmas Carol which I also really enjoyed (when you watch kids movies almost daily it is good to buy the ones that don't annoy you too much!! ) and recommend that as well! :) She adores both of them , but this one is her favourite!
