Barbie and the Three MusketeersClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Barbie is supposed to be a French "countryside girl" whose dream is to be a Musketeer like her father once was. Some parents might question "girl power" being defined by using weapons. Barbie and her friends fight and go after bad guys with their self-made weapons.
- Sexual Content
- A good deal of accidental touching and special moments with the Prince, as Barbie attempts to save his life. Swoony, dreamy sighs as the Prince walks by.
- Considering that it's Barbie, there's a lot of sword play and macho language from the girls. "Let's do this!" Barbie shouts as they take on a group of ne'er-do-wells. As they prepare for a costume ball where there's danger, Barbie and her friends decide to make "weapons that blend in with our costumes." Barbie runs with a sword to best the bad guy atop a Parisian church.
- Social Behavior
- Barbie goes to battle? Maybe not as egregious as this, but Barbie and her friends train to fight and do indeed drop a host of bad guys with their self-made weapons. The idea that girls can't be Musketeers motivates Barbie and her friends to try their hardest to fulfill their dreams to be swashbucklers with swords. Eh...
- Obviously the Barbie tie-ins with the movie are must-haves for fans. A Corinne doll, complete with a sword, is on the shelves.
