My memories of Barbie go back a long way – to the early 1970s when I enjoyed my own Barbies who had furniture, cars, dresses, shoes and a plethora of other accessories that I was spoiled to have. My Barbie even had some handmade clothes, which my grandmother made. Years later when my first daughter was old enough (she’s now 19) I passed some of those Barbie things on to her, and it wasn’t long before she caught the Barbie bug. There came more shoes, clothes, furniture, houses and accessories. Now my middle daughter, who’s 5, has her eyes set on all things Barbie. Especially since we watched the new DVD “Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale.”
I must admit I am as enthralled with the new Barbie DVD as Amareah is. This DVD takes you on a journey of fashion, friendship, family and fun. With the suspense of mystery, the beauty of fashion and a beautiful ending.
“Join Barbie in a colorful, modern-day fairytale filled with fashion, friends and fun. Barbie and her dog, Sequin, jet off to visit her aunt’s amazing fashion house in Paris, and much to her surprise it’s about to be shut down forever. After she discovers three enchanting Flairies with sparkle-magic powers, Barbie comes up with a brilliant idea to save the business. She even inspires, Alice, a shy fashion designer, and together they create a dazzling runway fashion show. Barbie shows that magic happens when you believe in yourself.”
The DVD has been available in stores since September 14th and has an accompanying toy line that definitely brings the movie to life. I, thank goodness, have not told Amareah about the toys yet. I think maybe I’ll surprise her with them for Christmas, but don’t tell her.
I definitely recommend picking up a copy of the DVD for the little girl (or the big girl!) in your life… I promise, you’ll enjoy it. Check out Barbie.com for more information.
Disclosure: Thanks to Barbie and MomSelect I received the “Barbie, A Fashion Fairytale” free of charge to facilitate my review and that in no way influenced my opinions – those are my own. More information can be found in my complete disclosure policy.
