my children loved this movie so much! the fact that it represents friendships is fantastic! barbie overall is a fantastic movie series because barbie has fantastic morals. barbie works so many jobs, such as a police officer, army cheif etc which are considered 'male jobs' barbie shows that she is whoever she wants to be. this moral is important to my kids. and i think barbie really represents this. also ken is emotionally vulnerable. but is great to show little boys that it is manly to cry. and emotions have no gender. this extrordinary movie is truly fantastic

morally fantastic

I watched this film with my 2 children, ages 5 and 8. They absolutely adored this movie because they got to explore the fantasy world. This movie includes some powerful morals and messages such as not to spread rumors and animal safety. You must watch this movie, my kids loved it and learned a great message.
