When self-absorbed young Makena whisks her away from her beautiful home among the wildflowers to live in a city apartment, Thumbelina learns that her idyllic home -- and the Twillerbees that live there -- are threatened by a construction project.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Barbie vehicle bears virtually no resemblance to the fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson, aside from the name of the main character. Repeated scenes of spoiled and materialistic kids and clueless parents are intended to set the stage for transformation. Corporate sabotage in the name of saving a patch of forest is depicted repeatedly. Predictable, safe family fare.
