Barbie mermaid

My niece is mermaid obsessed and loves playing with Barbies. I bought this and a few other mermaid themed things for her birthday. I love all the Barbie movies so this was a given.

Cute, inexpensive.

The Barbie movies are surprisingly good for what you'd expect. The graphics are simple, but there are actual stories that make it worth buying. The songs tend to be excellent. My daughters insisted I buy the sequel.

This story is about a girl (Merliah) raised by her grandfather who discovers she's half-mermaid on her sixteenth birthday. It turns out that her mermaid aunt has been keeping her mother prisoner, and Merliah has to rescue her and come to terms with her mermaid heritage. It's kitsch, but it's decent kitsch and my daughters adore it.

I have way more of these Barbie movies than I ever wanted, but it's worth the inexpensive price.

My daughter is four and has watched this movie at least five times. I find it a bit cringy and awkward but she enjoys it so that's all that matters!

My Daughter Is Obsessed
Verified purchase
My only complaint is that I constantly hear this playing, which really is not a complaint. It is too cute to hear my 3 year old singing a long and dancing to the songs to really be annoyed LOL

ok for kids who like mermaids
Verified purchase
Kudos that the hero is a girl. Barbie as "Merliah" is at first angry when she finds out she is part mermaid. After visiting the mermaid world she decides to fight for it. Eris, the villian, is a bit flat of a character. In defeating Eris, Barbie is reunited with Mom, Queen Callisa. Some cute underwater jokes and good scenery. Not the best Barbie movie though. If your kids like mermaids, it's good. If you are just looking for a good Barbie movie, we liked 3 Musketeers, Princess and Pauper, and Swan Lake which had better plots.
