Must watch for littles

My girls love this sweet adventure movie. I appreciate the sisterly love and no romance.

Parents need to know that Barbie & Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure is a cheery adventure for Barbie, Skipper, Stacie, and Chelsea as they visit their grandmother in their hometown of Willows. Positive messages about sharing, determination, and selflessness are central elements of the story. The four sisters and their grandmother are always caring, supportive, and thoughtful family members. The only jeopardy comes in the form of two buffoonish crooks who continually tumble, bump, and make mistakes. Mild suspense accompanies the group during the climax when the crooks chase them through underground caverns with a rickety bridge, bats, and a rock slide. No one is hurt. This new Barbie adventure introduces four new puppies to the Barbie brand, including plush animals, Barbie dolls with accompanying small pups, and carnival toys.
