My daughter and her friends were so thrilled when they opened the box from Mattel with Barbie’s newest DVD Barbie Mariposa & the Fairy Princess, Barbie dolls from the movie and DIY wings with glitter glue and pens!
The movie is a sequel to Barbie Mariposa and Her Butterfly Fairy Friends and the girls loved it just as much as the first one.
Barbie does such an amazing job of pro-social messaging with friendship and kindness prevailing!
The tale is all about how Mariposa goes on an adventure to prove that the Crystal Fairies are not “mean and cruel,” but are just portrayed that way in fairy tales.
Queen Marabella sums it up by saying they should discover the truth by “research and not stories.”
After the movie, the girls and I talked about how important it is to not listen to rumors about people and instead to make your own decisions about other people based on your own experiences. You should always give people the benefit of doubt and get to know them! Once again, Barbie came through with positive messaging and strong role models for girls.
Overall, the girls had the best time. They watched the movie with their dolls on their laps and after our little discussion, the first thing they said – “Can we watch it again?” That says it all right there 🙂
