Barbie in A Mermaid Tale – Review and Giveaway

MBarbie in A Mermaid Tale. This movie is about a girl named Merliah. She goes on an adventure to save her mother and the people of Oceana and meets some new people on the way. One friend she meets is a dolphin named Zuma who helps Merliah defeat her mother’s evil sister, Eris. As queen, Eris controls the people of Oceana with whirlpools that are impossible to escape. Merliah has to get three tools to defeat Eris, so she goes on an adventure to get what she needs. To find out more, you’ll have to watch the movie.

I liked this movie because I think Barbie is amazing, and she gets to have all sorts of adventures. I also love mermaids and sometimes wish I could be one! I would love to be able to breath under water and have a tail of my own. I also like this movie because whoever Barbie is playing, she learns a lesson. In this movie, she learns that what makes you different can be your greatest strength.

You should get this movie because there’s lots of action and because of Barbie’s cool adventures in Malibu and Oceana. Also, at the end of the movie, there is a music video called “She’s the Queen of the Waves.”

    Thanks, Rachel, for the great review. My daughter is 8, and she’s a big fan of Barbie, and of mermaids, so I bet she’ll love this move as mush as you did!

    My daughter is also a big fan of Barbie! She’s 7 and has actively tried to be a mermaid – going so far as to borrow my scuba fins, don her mermaid costume and jump into the water. One ruined costume later and one missing fin, we’re sticking with the stories!

    My daughter likes Barbies. My son – not so much! But after reading the review, I’m sure she would like this movie.
