I picked "educational" because I love the music from these. My daughter now knows the music from Swan lake and the Nutcracker. It's a fantastic movie to watch at Christmas time. It's one of the best Barbie movies, to me, that they've made.
I have been impressed and very un-impressed at some Barbie movies. Some are good and then some are terrible with cattiness, shallowness, and tween/teen situations. This is one I like and my girls like. It gave them a good idea of what the nutcracker was all about prior to seeing the live ballet. I put it on the list of good ones.
