A message from the Barbie Fairytopia DVD distributor:
While the Barbie Fairytopia DVD is fully functional on virtually all of the 600 plus DVD player models in the marketplace, to date we have identified that there are five DVD players on which the DVD is sometimes prompting a request for a parental code-rather than allowing the DVD to play. The five players identified to date are: RJTech 1200b, Daewoo model# 5900, Cinevision model# DVR 2000, AMW model# S99, GO Video VHS/DVD model# 1030. We deeply regret the inconvenience that this may cause owners of one these players. We have identified that the issue on these players is tied to one of the fun special features that was included on the DVD designed to further enhance the wonderful enjoyment that kids will have with the Barbie Fairytopia DVD. The interactive game has an element of programming complexity that is confusing these DVD players. We are attempting to resolve the issue for these players, but in the meantime:
If you own one of these players- you may be asked to enter a Parental Code Pass Code. If you are given this prompt- and have never set up a Parental Code Pass Code--you may be able to resolve the issue by following the instructions below:
1. Refer to your DVD user manual to obtain default Parental Code pass code.
2. Enter pass code and hit select or enter.
3. If you see a black screen for longer than a few seconds, hit the menu button.
4. If the problem is still not solved, eject disc, unplug player, and try again.
If you do not own or play the DVD on one of the DVD players that we have identified, your DVD should play regularly. Once again--we regret any inconvenience to owners of one of the 5 players noted above. If you have any questions or comments--or have identified another player with this parental-code notification, please do not hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.

The movie is 70 minutes long (compared to 78 min for Nutcracker, 83 min for Rapunzel, 83 min for Swan Lake, and 85 min for Princess and the Pauper) and seems to be meant as a set-up for a series of Fairytopia movies and to sell fairytopia dolls. (if you see the feature in called Meet New Friends, or something along those lines, it shows many of the products related to the line, which is one the most shameless promotions I've seen for the series. No inspirational true life stories of girls achieving their goals or anything of the sort in this one, unlike some of the previous movies which did include some nice extras).
The movie introduces a lot of characters that are not at all developed and has a very flimsy story. I guess that is why I am not giving it 5 stars. I've seen what Barbie movies can be, and this one was not the best. The previous four Barbie movies based on classic stories are wonderful. I can watch them with my daughter every time and do not get tired of them. They are extremely well developed for this kind of movie. They used well known voice talents that brought a certain credibility to the movies which I had not expected when I first saw them advertised. This one is not in the same level as the previous four. It is sort of like the difference between Disney's Aladdin and the two sequels.Read more ›
I have one message for you. Moviemakers take a story, and they are NOT supposed to produce an exact movie clone of it. It's been done too many times before. How boring the movie world would be then!
The other Barbie movies I gave ratings of no lower than four stars. But this trash - one star!
Animation - It sucks. Big time. They look like they came out of the animation lab incomplete. The other Barbie movies are much better, and more realistic.
Character Development - None. From the beginning of story, the characters are either labelled as caring or wicked. Nothing else. Plus, Barbie, or Elina and Bibble REALLY irritated me with fake sweetness and innocence this time, and Barbie's never done that before. In fact, I wished the wicked fairy had more screen time than her!
Plot - Very predictable. The other movies always surprised me with unique plots - in the good way. Elina is a wingless fairy who must save her fairy world and earn her wings, and the bla...bla...bla... Not very original either. We've all seen this before. Plus, it's not smoothly flowing like in the other movies. Someone is an outsider, and must prove her worth to everyone, by saving the day - if you want to see this plot, watch Balto instead! It at least has a plot that makes sense.
What really irritates me about this plot is the fact that the queen or some ruler is kidnapped at the very beginning of the movie. That is NOT right.Read more ›
We received the DVD which includes the movie, movie scene selection, and other features including a couple of games: Boogie with Bibble, a game that allows you to watch Bibble dance to three different types of music; a simple matching game called Pixie Hide-and-Seek, and a feature called Fairy Friends, which is a short list describing minimal information about all of Elina's fairy friends. The games are suitable for children as young as the age of four. Older, computer-savvy children may find the games less challenging.
The movie lasts 70 minutes, yet the story, in my opinion, is a simple one. As a parent of four children ranging in age from 6 months to seven years, I think the movie best suits children between the ages of four and seven. Some eight or nine year-olds may become bored with the movie, unless they are die-hard Barbie fans! Then again, my daughter really likes science fiction, so I suspect she would enjoy it were she older. My four-year-old son even LOVED the movie, and laughed continuously at Barbie's furry sidekick, Bibble, despite the fact that he doesn't particularly like dolls. So, I think the movie is a cute, fantasy animation for children, and would recommend it.
A couple of other reviewers did not like the fairies teasing Elina in the beginning of the movie. Elina was teased for being a fairy without wings! In my opinion, this small clip painted a portrait of a girl who didn't fit in, but despite being picked on and teased occasionally, overcame that ridicule. I think the movie teaches a great lesson by illustrating this point.Read more ›
