This contemporary animated fairy tale finds Barbie dashing off to Paris to save her aunt's struggling fashion house and -- thanks to magical fairy-muses Shim'r, Glim'r and Shyn'r -- she comes up with a plan to save the day: a fabulous runway show. With a shy clothing designer named Alice pitching in to help, Barbie proves that success comes from hard work and, most importantly, believing in yourself.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie is a feature-length advertisement for clothing, toys, and accessories displayed within the film. While some positive messages about believing in yourself run through the movie, the overarching concentration on fashion, appearance, and consumerism overwhelm everything else.

Sexual Content

Barbie and Ken share a lengthy kiss after saying they love one another. Ken's pants rip and the audience gets a glimpse of his underwear.

Social Behavior

Any positive messages, such as "magic happens when you believe in yourself" are overshadowed by the focus on selling the products that appear in this movie.


Everything in this movie has a product tie-in. From all of the dozens of outfits featured on the "runway," to the magical wardrobe furniture, to the pets and their outfits. Barbie also promotes her other movies by mentioning them, or standing in front of a movie poster. Even the limousines that pick the cast up at the end of the show -- decked out horse-drawn carriages with big-screen TVs inside-- are available for sale.
