Surf’s up for Barbie as she returns as Merliah, the fun and fashionable surfing champion who’s also a magical mermaid princess!  In this exciting sea-quel, Merliah makes a splash when she heads to Australia for the ultimate surfing competition. When the evil mermaid Eris escapes from her whirlpool with plans to take over the throne of Oceana, Merliah and her sea friends dive in to stop her.  It's a fresh new adventure where Merliah learns that anything is possible and she really can have the best of both worlds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Barbie Tale March 3, 2012
Format:DVD
Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 begins where the last one left off - Merliah is now a princess mermaid and her mother continues to rule Oceania.

Merliah wants to continue to be a teen and enjoy surf competitions while being human. But her mother wants her to transition into princess duties. It causes problems between mother and daughter as a big and important mermaid event approaches (Ceremony of the Tides - where the ruler's ability to make the magic merillia and heal the oceans is renewed). Meanwhile, Merliah's evil Aunt Eris has found the key to escaping her prison by using Merliah's human surfing competitor Kylie Morgan's jealousy against her. A new character, an angelfish named Allister, assists Eris' escape.

Barbie/Merliah grapples with issues of identity, responsibility, and being a gracious winner and loser in her surf competitions. As with most Barbie movies, she'll turn Raquelle (Kylie)'s jealousy from a destructive force into a positive friendship. And that friendship will be the key to Merliah accomplishing her goals and saving Oceania. It will also make Kylie a better person and help her reach her aspirations as well. There's a great message that bullying doesn't get you anywhere but that friendships transcend what any one person can accomplish alone.

In all, there are a lot of interesting characters this time and a lot of action - my 8 year old was entranced as she rooted for Merliah to arrive in time to prevent Eris from taking over her mother's kingdom. Especially fun are the band of bad guys - moray eels with a little electricity to boot (fun scene from the movie!). Also nice is that the dolls for the movie are inexpensive and all have speaking parts in the series - it makes play acting fun with so many characters to choose from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mermaid Tale 2...Pretty Cool March 8, 2012
By Andy
Format:DVD
This sequel to 2010's Mermaid tale continues to develop the story around the conflict between Merliah's human and mermaid heritages. As with any such conflict, Merliah's ultimate happiness depends on her ability to reconcile both in her life.

I personally thought this movie was better than the first one. As a parent, I really liked the messages about working together, forgiveness, overcoming adversity, learning to accept yourself and find joy when your life faces dramatic changes, facing your fears, and especially that there are more important things in life than winning. I especially liked the closing scenes because of the message that some things are more important than beating the competition and that life can honestly feel a lot better if we allow other people to share in our successes. As a fan of the Barbie movies in general, I was thrilled that Kelly Sheridan voiced Merliah. For me the voice artist change wasn't a deal breaker, but I definitely prefer Ms. Sheridan as the voice of Barbie. And, my daughter also really liked this movie.

There continued to be an emphasis on celebrity that I'm concerned about as a parent, though I was happy to see that while there was some commercialism in this movie, it wasn't as over the top as it has been in some of the recent Barbie movies. Though, on that note, the preview for Fall's Barbie movie, Princess and the Popstar, has me thinking that the Barbie line is going to continue it's emphasis on celebrity, which isn't thrilling. I also am concerned that this seems to be a reworking of the Princess and the Pauper concept, which I thought they did so well the first time that they ought to just leave it alone. But that is the next movie...For Mermaid Tale 2, I would definitely recommend this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely mind-blowing! May 5, 2013
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
This is one of my favorite Barbie movies. I love Kylie's accent! I just don't like how they never add any redheaded or black-haired girls. It's always a blonde and a brunette. I also don't like how Merliah doesn't care about winning anymore at the end. That's what sports are all about-fun and winning. If you don't try to win, you'll never achieve your dreams.
P.S. They make surfing seem like a niceness contest-the nicest person wins first place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Barbie rocks! June 15, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The Barbie movies, especially the ones in the past few years are a must have if your daughter is five and over. They are the only kids movies I watch all the way through. It's nice to have that option again. Barbie Mermaid I and II and the Perfect X-mas all make that magic happen. I actually prefer the first Mermaidia but they're both great, as well as the books. It's nice to have DVD's online in Amazon because we sometimes take the pc out to the backyard for movie night in a tent. Fun and great idea for a child on bed rest for a few days. My daughter was not scared of the evil Mermaid as much in the sequel as in Mermaidia I, or in the book Mermaidia I where Eris was a bit darker. She was afraid at age 5 but less so by 5.5.

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My girls love everything Barbie and each movie usually has a good underlying moral lesson. I think we have watched it 3 times and if it gets a repeat play by them it MUST be good!
