Positive Role Models
Four female toddlers become superheroes in this movie -- they're capable, brave, and use their powers for good. In addition, the Babyz are loyal to one another and work well together. But they take advantage of their caregiver Gran's weakness and often set out to fool her (i.e., sneaking out of the house when they're supposed to be asleep). The toddlers have exaggerated facial features and appear to be wearing lipstick. Gran is a loving parental figure who tries to be conscientious, but she's ditzy and can't see well enough to be a responsible babysitter. As in all Bratz offerings, characters are ethnically diverse.
Violence & Scariness
Some mild cartoon action and suspense when the Super Babyz face off with a group of silly-looking Tubers (potatoes) from another planet. Tubers capture and bind the Babyz with tuber roots. Pudding is thrown. One potato points a laser gun at the Babyz. The captured Babyz are in danger of being transported to the Tubers' home planet. When the Babyz realize they have super powers they save a school bus that is in danger of going off a cliff and rescue a family from a bear. In other brief action sequences, Cloe is frightened on an amusement park ride and a store clerk is tied up by the Tubers.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Bratz Super Babyz is intended for very young Bratz fans. There's none of the fashion-conscious, make-up-obsessed behavior usually associated with the franchise. Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha, and Jade are toddlers who are interested in toys, superheroes, and amusement park rides. The girls go on mildly suspenseful rescue operations and run into trouble from some comic space potatoes who chase them and fight using their exaggerated, entangling roots. It's doubtful that anyone but the youngest or most sensitive kids will find this movie scary. And it's doubtful that the usual tween audience will find it appealing.

What's the Story?
In the temporary care of Gran while their parents are away, Baby Cloe, Baby Yasmin, Baby Sasha, and Baby Jade are enjoying the freedom they have, especially since Gran doesn't see well enough to keep track of them all the time! Trouble finds them at Adventure Universe, the amusement park where their favorite superheroes (the Super Buds) hang out. There, the Babyz encounter a troop of hostile "Tubers" (potatoes) from another planet. Somehow the aliens' magical "matter exchanger" ends up at Gran's house and the little girls are turned into "Super Buds" themselves.
Is It Any Good?
In an attempt to find ever younger consumers, the Bratz folks have created the toddler versions of Cloe, Yasmin, Sasha, and Jade and put them in a silly, meandering tale. In this film, they are flying miniature superheroes, adorable wide-eyed babies in highchairs, and giggly best buddies.
The story takes time off from the main plot to show the Babyz making daring rescues and outwitting their well-meaning but flustered babysitter. It's jumbled, mildly humorous in spots, but generally lightweight material with little to recommend it.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about Gran as a babysitter. Though she was loving, was she alert and responsible enough to take care of the Babyz? How did the girls take advantage of her?
What made the potatoes think that "babies are royalty" on this planet? Do you think that is true?
If you could have just one super power, what would it be? Why?
