Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Princess Starglo is a witty tell-it-like-it-is character, a nice contrast to the sugary, one-dimension nature of the Care Bears themselves. While kids likely won't care too much about the story's simplicity and blandness, parents can find plenty of better options out there ... especially since they're likely already aware that young viewers will find the Care Bears toys they see in the store even more appealing after watching this movie.

Parents with a working knowledge of how the stars, sun, constellations, and universe work might have difficulty watching this DVD with their children, since it gives such a magical explanation for their existence. On the other hand, Share Bear's unwavering conviction in Princess Starglo should prove a worthwhile example for parents looking to discuss the importance of keeping faith even when no one around you feels the same.

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.
