Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there is an evil fairy who threatens to destroy idyllic Fairytopia. The heroine, Elina, is ostracized by other apprentices at fairy school, but meets two friends who are kind to her. When one of the mean fairy students needs help, Elina selflessly goes to her rescue, and all the apprentices learn to work together to thwart the threat to their kingdom. Girls under 8 will get the most out of the simple story on this DVD, and because it's Barbie, they will probably be begging for all the merchandise to go with it.
Two puffball pets engage in harmless flirtation.
Evil fairy threatens to destroy Fairytopia, but carnage is limited to wilting a symbolic flower bud.
Virtuous characters are easy to spot and are rewarded; less admirable characters learn lessons about teamwork, and the meanest character is neutralized.
Because Barbie plays the main role, there's no getting away from the toy tie-in. Character dolls, books, athletic shoes, and playsets are advertised in the DVD insert, and one of the games on the DVD can be interactive if played with a tie-in doll.
