Must watch for littles

No romance. Sisterly love. No violence or extreme peril. My 2 and 6 year old love this cute sister adventure.

Is It Any Good?

It's nice seeing Barbie and her little sisters vaulting over gorges, scaling cliffs, and jumping horses over a crevasse; mainly, it's a far cry from fashion-obsessed Barbies of yore. And Barbie & Her Sisters in a Puppy Chase is a gentle story. No evildoers along the way, just simple missteps and unexpected situations that get the crew in enough hot water to provide them with a mildly suspenseful, scare-free adventure. The too-adorable puppies may be a bit much for older kids, but the little ones will love them. With the Barbie & Her Sisters franchise, Mattel has covered the kid market from toddler to tween. Every new DVD has new dolls, toys, play sets, and accessories attached. At least this movie is pleasant enough, with sisters who genuinely like each other, behave well, are competent, and look up to their wonderfully aware big sister. It's OK for even the youngest viewers.
