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:
