Promotes inclusiveness

Encourages friendship, being true to oneself, and embracing diversity. Unique and funny. Only drawback is there is no diversity in body size for the main characters, and they all wear insanely high heels...but other than that, it features empowering teen characters as positive role models.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Fans of Monster High will not be disappointed; those who find the curvy, doe-eyed fashionistas in spike heels a bit iffy will note that nothing along those lines has changed. Oh, and so many new toys: With the Freaky Fusion dolls and Hybrid dolls now entering the marketplace, this DVD is chock-full of buying opportunities. At least the story is fun and there are plenty of solid messages. Familiar characters have a few surprisingly suspenseful moments and some heart-warming visits with their ancestors, learn important lessons, and open their hearts to a continuing parade of interesting new friends.
