Barbie A Perfect Christmas DVD {Review and Giveaway}

The weather here in New Orleans has finally gotten colder (we even had to wear a jacket today!), so it is getting easier to find my Christmas spirit!  Last weekend, we started shopping for gifts, putting up our holiday decorations, unpacking our winter clothes and breaking out the Christmas music and DVDs.

While our favorites are Rudolph and Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas (anybody remember that one?), we are excited to add “Barbie: A Perfect Christmas” DVD to our collection.  Because I have two daughters, we are no strangers to Barbie and all of her accessories, so my girls couldn’t wait to see her come to life in this Christmas movie.  About the DVD:

The all-new DVD, “Barbie: A Perfect Christmas” stars Barbie and her three sisters – Skipper, Stacy and Chelsea, whose holiday vacation turns into an unexpected adventure filled with new friends and magical experiences. In the end, the sisters learn a heartwarming lesson that the joy of being together is what really makes A Perfect Christmas! Released November 8th at all major retailers.”

We received the DVD today and my daughters could not wait one more second to watch the movie, so we decided to have a Wednesday night movie before bedtime.  The DVD has a runtime of 1 hour and 14 minutes, so I was a bit concerned that it wouldn’t hold the attention of my 3 year old.  I was wrong.  Very wrong. Both of my girls (ages 3 and 6) loved the storyline and the music.  Their favorite parts included the “raindogs” and the snowball fight between Barbie and her sisters!

As a Mom, I liked that the movie showed the importance of family at Christmas and downplayed the idea of receiving material items.  Barbie’s two youngest sisters remind me a LOT of my two daughters….they tease each other just like the movie.  I was glad to see scenes where the sisters learn to get along and love one another.

As a blogger, it was fun to watch because one of Barbie’s sisters, Skipper, is a blogger, too!  It was funny to see Barbie and Skipper talking about podcasts and websites.  That’s a far cry from the Barbie of my day!

Overall, both my daughters and I enjoyed the movie!  I would definitely recommend it as a gift or stocking stuffer this Christmas for girls who love Barbie and friends.  In fact, you can even purchase the Barbie and Sister dolls from the movie exclusively at Target ($49.99)!
