I love the Barbie DVDs so when I was given the new "Sing Along with Barbie" DVD to review I was excited! Though not put together as well as it could have been, it still is entertaining.
Twelve Barbie songs comprise this DVD which is basically 12 scenes ripped from some of our favorite Barbie movies like "The Island Princess," "Barbie and the Three Musketeers," "Barbie and the Diamond Castle," "The Princess and the Pauper" and a few more.
My seven year old daughter was able to follow along with the purple highlighted words, like you'd do in karaoke, though we did notice when there was a duet, it was harder to follow. We did figure out that the second singer's lyrics were on the bottom, but my son pointed out it would have been better if the words were highlighted a different color. One negative is that since the songs are scenes from the movie, there is talking involved and that talking is also highlighted across the screen as if the subtitles were just turned on, but that is easily overlooked.
I'm sure more effort could have been put into making this product more of a traditional karaoke style then just scenes ripped from the dvds with subtitles turned on, but having the songs all in one dvd is a fun way to watch all your favorite Barbie dvds.
