First, this movie has nothing to do with the original Thumbalina...except for the name and it's a fairy. Second, this movie did not display the type of behavior I want my young lady watching. The girl in the movie is portrayed as a "spoiled Rich Brat" , who's parents give her anything she wants. They zone in on the fact that the girl and her two friends are very into high fashion...and have competition on who has the newest Name Brand Fashion item ( and I am not talking on the lines of Guess....rather Gucci). I find it very annoying that Barbie would want to expose young girls to this. Now, in their defense, Thumbalina helps turn the bratty girl into caring about the forest...but seriously they spent so much time showing the bratty rich snobby girls judging each other so much...I felt the damage was already done. I could see this movie may be better for 13 age - as they are aware of cliches, and catty girls. Now the enviromental message in this movie is not a strong one. You could teach your child more, by planting a tree or garden. The sad part is that this dvd is literally going in the trash. I don't even want to recycle it.
1. It's very different. A change from all the princess movies. Don't get me wrong! I LOVE the princess movies, but a change is always nice.
2. It inspired me to help the enviroment more.
3. The Twillerbees are very cool- I love their home!
4. It's a good story, but there isn't any scary stuff. It's hard to have a good movie without a little bit of fright, or on-the-edge-of-your-seat stuff.
1. The animation is NOWHERE NEAR as beautiful as the older ones! It remids me of movies like Toy Story. I DID NOT like the construction Boss Myron. He looks completely unrealistic and despicable.
2. I didn't like the way the parents were portrayed as "kiss-ups." It's a way of undermining parents authority. Although you must understand, it's not that they are dumb slobs, but they are too busy and don't have time for their daughter. So they simply let her have whatever she wants. It's the classic "rich kid" case- a daughter longing for attention and getting it from her firends because it's unavailable from her parents.
3. Barbie tells the story to a redhead, brown- eyed Emma, along with a group of kids. I missed the one-on-one, heart-to-heart sister relationship between Barbie and her sisters.
4. "Ashlyn", Violet's friend, is SOOOO irritating!!! All she says is "Ch-ya!" grr....
5. I didn't like the way Thumbelina and her friends appeared to the kids at the end. I like the more mystery, where Barbie might say something like, "Maybe..." but you never see the fairy-tale people- so the kids are just left thinking.
Overall, I really like this movie.Read more ›

We are a fan of Barbie movies, but this one is terrible. The kids are mean and not relatable, and the environmental message comes across as cheesy.Published 7 months ago by jehs95
