Barbie and the Secret Door – A Magical, Musical Journey

Barbie-and-the-Secret-Door-high-res-logoA few weeks ago I was invited to a special screening of Barbie and the Secret Door  – the new Barbie film which was released on DVD from 1st September.

I couldn’t make it but I was sent the DVD to review. Luckily as the girls were disappointed about not being able to make it.

Barbie is a household name and the girls love playing with Barbie. They obviously also love watching the films on telly and were thrilled to get the new DVD to review.

The Story

Barbie™ stars as Alexa, a shy princess who discovers a secret door in her kingdom and enters a whimsical land filled with magical creatures and surprises. Inside, Alexa meets Romy and Nori, a mermaid and a fairy, who explains that a spoiled ruler named Malucia is trying to take all the magic in the land. To her surprise, Alexa has magical powers in this world, and her new friends are certain that only she can restore their magic. Discover what happens when Alexa finds the courage to stand up for what’s right and learns that the power of friendship is far more precious than magic.

Featuring seven new songs, this enchanted musical is set to have little ones singing along as they can follow the in-pack song book and join Alexa on her magical, musical journey.

What we thought of it

The story is lovely and magical and will appeal to any little girl. It is set in a world of pink and prettiness and everything dreamlike. What we really enjoyed too as the songs as they are very catchy and tuneful and perfect for little one’s to practise their pitch. Jadyn loved the idea of having to stand up for oneself. We all enjoyed the movie,even Ethan did, as he enjoyed the magic part of it.

We loved the unicorns and the little creatures.

It also instills in the children the idea that you never know your capabilities unless you try.

Definitely one to watch if you like Barbie and singing and magic and fairy tale like stories.

Here is the trailer in case you want to know more…
