Barbie in A Mermaid's Tale 2
My four year old daughter Frida was very excited when I asked her if she would like to watch the latest Barbie film. The arrival of the DVD seemed to magically coincide with a new Barbie toothbrush and a Barbie doll on loan from a friend, so this seemed to round off the current Barbie mania in our household.
Barbie in this movie is called Merliah, who is a fun and fashionable surf champion who is also secretly a magical mermaid princess. The film opens with Barbie in Australia taking part in a major surf competition.
Frida does not like watching films that are in any way scary and, although there is an evil mermaid Eris, who wants to take over the throne of Oceana, this part is not too scary and is therefore watchable for all sensitive souls!
Barbie in A Mermaid's Tale 2 focuses on Merliah, her friend Kylie and some sea creatures having to stop Eris from taking over Oceana.
If you have a young girl, I am sure she would enjoy it very much. It is the right length to hold their attention and with the usual mix of princesses and mermaids hits all the right girly buttons.
As a parent I was glad to see that Barbie was also portrayed as a leader, a hero and a friend and the ending has a nice twist about winning.
