2012 Holiday Gift Guide: Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar Review
Earlier this week my daughter and I got the chance review the new Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar DVD. I was really excited because I was a huge Barbie fan growing up, and now my daughter has been showing interest in Barbies. This movie QUICKLY became a hit! I absolutely loved it! The story line was adorable, both Tori and Keira have amazing lives, but are envious of each other. The girls each have a bit of magic, in the form of Tori's hairbrush and Keira's microphone, which allow them to change their appearance- thus ultimately switching places! I have to say that one of the funniest scenes is when Princess Tori used her hairbrush to give the Duchess all kinds of crazy hairstyles, like a mohawk.
I expected cute kid music, but I was singing right along the entire time! They used songs that all us moms know, and just changed them to make them appropriate for the movie. Its definitely a movie that mothers and daughters can watch together, and both enjoy! Even my husband sat down to watch it with us and was singing! My daughter absolutely fell in love with Keira's character. So much, that we went out and bought the costume- which she has been wearing everyday while watching this movie. Singing and dancing along will not get old to her! Here is Alexa in pretending to be Keira:
If you are looking for a feel- good movie for your daughter, this is definitely it! It teaches great lessons in friendship, honesty, and teamwork. You can find Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar HERE!
