Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bratz Babyz Save Christmas features four Bratz Babyz, younger versions of the original Bratz dolls, on an adventure to save Santa and outsmart some crooks. There is some minor peril involved in the subplot of the three crooks, which features some pratfalls and slapstick injuries. There are a few chase scenes with reckless driving, but no one is injured. The toddlers wear visible makeup, such as eye shadow, lipstick, and blush. They have shiny long manes and are dressed in tween-style fashion. However, the film focuses on the girls strategizing a way to save Santa and rescue Christmas using teamwork, planning, and resourcefulness, so the emphasis on appearances takes a backseat here.

Is It Any Good?
Bratz Babyz are a tough sell. Though every other character in this animated adventure looks realistic -- Grandma has wrinkles and age spots -- these toddlers could not look less like actual toddlers in any shape or form. But, if you can get past the shiny manes, lipstick, mascara, and eye shadow on characters that are hardly out of diapers, there are some positive messages here and a can-do spirit about problem solving. Overall, the adventure is a pretty convoluted one, but the themes are simple enough: We don't always get what we want, but sometimes we get something better if we can just keep a positive attitude. That's something to embrace, even if the packaging isn't exactly up to snuff.
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.
