Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a soundtrack that hosts a bunch of tweeny pop stars, but without the usual fluff and synth-filled tracks that often populate the airwaves and iPods of Disney-age fans. These songs are inspiring, uplifting, and soothing, with sweet Gaelic-influenced, tinkered tunes about friendship and finding your dreams.
What's the story?
In her newest adventures in Pixie Hollow, Tinker Bell learns true lessons of friendship and determination. The soundtrack to Disney's Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure is full of the same lilting Irish-influenced delights as the movie, featuring popular teen artists such as Demi Lovato, Jordan Pruitt, Jesse McCartney, Savannah Outen, Tiffany Thorton, and Selena Gomez, with her hit "Fly to Your Heart," included from the previous Tinker Bell soundtrack. There's also bonus material available online using the CD at PixieHollow.com.
Is it any good?
If your little fairies liked the first Tinker Bell and its soundtrack, then they're going to love this one as well. The same soothing, Irish melodies and flutes surround the equally inspiring lyrics about the meaning of friendship and the importance of finding your dreams. It's a great soundtrack to just pop in and listen to on a long car ride, or when you're tired of all the other synth-filled, trifling emo-angst pop that often crowds the airwaves and iPods today. Young fans will enjoy every song, and maybe even be encouraged with its positive messages about the value of friends. Demi Lovato's "The Gift of a Friend" and Savannah's "A Greater Treasure than a Friend" are stand-outs, and fans will like that Selena Gomez's sweet song "Fly to Your Heart" is included as well.

There are many toys that eventually have movies made about them. Is it always okay to assume that just because your child has a toy, that it's okay to see the movie? Why or why not?
