I can’t believe common sense media rated this a 3 out of 5 and for kids 5+. I would think the most “common sense” would be to warn parents that this show pushes agendas that are geared at indoctrinating and grooming our children. So disappointing! Any parents who want to protect their child’s innocence, steer clear of this show.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Barbie fans who fell in love with the Malibu/Brooklyn dynamic duo in Barbie: Big City Big Dreams will be eager to binge this fun, musical show. Barbie: It Takes Two continues the girls' journeys towards pop stardom with upbeat music, bright colors, and a dramatic plot. Young kids can tune in and will likely enjoy, but there may be some content related to the performing arts that goes over their heads. As with most Barbie shows and movies, parents should be mindful that their little ones may ask to expand their Barbie collections after watching.
