I am not generally a fan of the Disney girly princess stuff (not that the movies are all bad, but the merchandising is awful), so I was prepared to dislike this movie, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by it. There is a pretty good story line, attractive animation, and some nice themes about friendship, kindness, bravery, and believing in yourself even when others don't believe you. The little girl in the movie is kind and imaginative, and Tinkerbell is depicted as a smart problemsolver with a good scientific/mechanical mind, and loyal and caring to boot. Plus, of course, the movie has enough magic and fancy to keep young kids fully engaged. My 4 year old daughter ate this up, and she is now dreaming of being a fairy rather than a princess, which is a refreshing change of pace (in our house, the princess thing seems to be all about putting on a fancy dress and looking pretty [sigh], while the fairy-based imaginative play involves flying, nature and animals, building shelters to get ready for the winter or the rain, being magic and rescuing people, etc.--much more interesting).
