My children like the Barbie films and I’m quite happy to indulge this because there is very little in them to cause any kind of consternation. For Christmas Fifi got Barbie A Mermaid Tale so when I heard that the second film was out I knew she would enjoy seeing it. We eagerly watched A Mermaid Tale 2 one afternoon and although it didn’t disappoint, I have to admit we didn’t enjoy it quite as much as the first film.
The Mermaid Tale series is set to become a firm favourite in this household and Boy has even asked to watch both films for a second time, so that’s praise indeed. In my quest for films and programmes which I don’t need to sit down and watch with the kids, you know, for those moments when you need to cook dinner these Barbie films are perfect.
At the moment with my lack of sleep I cant really explain the story any better than the press release, so if you are interested I’ve posted it below. If you click here you can have a look at the trailer:
The long awaited sea-quel in the Mermaid Tale series is set to give Barbie fans a super splashing treat when Barbie™ in A Mermaid Tale 2 is released on 27th February, 2012.
Surf’s up for Barbie™ as she returns as Merliah™, the fun and fashionable surf champion who’s also secretly a magical mermaid princess! Merliah™ and her friends from Barbie ™ in A Mermaid Tale make a splash when she heads to Australia for a major surf competition.
When the evil mermaid Eris escapes from her whirlpool with plans to take over the throne of Oceana, Merliah™ and her sea friends dive in to stop her, saving the day down under. It’s a fresh new adventure in which Merliah™ learns that anything is possible when you stay true to yourself.
Barbie™ in A Mermaid Tale 2 is available to pre-order now on DVD. As well as lots of magical mermaid adventures, the release contains special features and bonus material where fans can get the moves like Merliah™ with the never seen before ‘Do the Mermaid’ music video, alongside unreleased outtake footage and an exclusive Polly Pocket ‘Best Day Ever’ Trailer Gallery.
