Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (1 ):

In this computer game, Barbie looks princess-like in her flowing gowns, but these fripperies don't get in the way of her running, ice skating, or riding and flying over obstacles while on the back of Brietta, a magical winged horse. She's a princess who takes action to save her kingdom -- instead of waiting for a prince to rescue her. This Barbie is an intrepid and resourceful heroine, a role model you can feel good about your daughters emulating.

Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus is an excellent way to introduce young kids to video gaming because the controls are easy to learn. The quest portion of the game has limited replay potential because it's linear, but kids will enjoy repeating the puzzles as well as the flying and skating sequences.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
