After the overwhelming success with my initially reluctant boys of Barbie Princess Charm School, they didn’t need any cajoling to watch the new movie Barbie A Perfect Christmas.
It’s a very musical movie all about Barbie and her sisters Skipper, Stacie and Chelsea. They are all excited about travelling to New York and spending Christmas in the Big Apple, and they all have their own special reasons for wanting their perfect Christmas in NY. Barbie has front row seats for a Broadway play, Skipper is going to record a track with some friends, Stacie is excited about the Ice Skating at the Rockefeller Centre and Chelsea wants to see the Central Park Sea Lions.
Unfortunately for the girls things don’t end up going to plan as their plane is diverted due to a snowstorm. They end up snowed in the small town of Tannenbaum (Tannenbaum is German for Christmas Tree). They find an amazingly Christmasssy place to stay called the Tannenbaum inn run by the wonderful Christie Clauson.
All the way through the film Chelsea is convinced that Christie Clauson has something to do with Father Christmas. Perhaps she does? You’ll just have to watch for yourself and make up your own mind.
In the end the girls realise that all they really need for a perfect Christmas is each other. It’s a heartwarming movie all about the importance of family and it really makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside watching it. Even my husband who watched the 2nd half of the film enjoyed it. It’s instantly become a Wood family Christmas Tradition.
I have to admit that I’m actually a bit addicted to the songs too. Luckily my favourite song “It’s gonna be amazing” is right at the very beginning, so I have been known to just watch the first 5 minutes having a bit of a bop once the kids have left for school in the morning.
