Hello everyone! In case you haven’t read my previous post, I will be sharing some of my favorites, so you all can get to know me a little bit better
Today we are talking about Barbie!!
More specifically the Barbie movies!
Aside from Sailor Moon, Barbie was a major part of my life growing up and still is. Barbie represents more than just beauty, but the epitome of a strong, intelligent, and brave female heroine. To many, Barbie was simply a character that they grew out of. However, I believe she relates to many individuals no matter the age, gender, and race. I also really appreciate Mattel’s new vision of creating a more diverse and inclusive branding. Barbie has now evolved to a fun and expressive role model for all ages!
Like many, my twin sister and I outgrew the Barbie phase. It wasn’t until our freshman year of high school when we decided to watch “Barbie and The Diamond Castle” and the rest was history! We were captivated by the magic of Barbie once again and it’s meaningful motifs behind each movie.
Each film exemplifies not only adventure, but self-empowerment, hope, and belief.
Here are some of my favorites Barbie quotes:
Barbie in The 12 Dancing Princesses (2006)
“There’s a difference only you can make.”
Barbie: Fairytopia (2005)
“What makes you different makes you special.”
Barbie: A Fashion Fairy Tale (2010)
“Magic happens when you believe in yourself.”
Barbie and The Three Musketeers (2009)
“True courage is pursuing your dream, even when everyone else says it’s impossible.”
Barbie and The Magic of Pegasus (2005)
“There is always hope.”
Barbie as Rapunzel (2002)
“Love and imagination can change the world.”
Let’s talk about my favorite Barbie movies…
Although I love many of the movies, my all time favorites are “Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses” and “Barbie as Rapunzel”
These films are Barbie’s classic as they are depict a more fairy tale approach. What makes these two films great is the great attention to detail, strong protagonists, and an enchanting soundtrack.

Last, but not least, the Barbie Vlogs!
More recently, Mattel has re-positioned their brand to a more “modern” Barbie to adapt to the technological environment and competitors. The evolution of Barbie has led to Mattel reaching to the YouTube world, which has been extremely penetrating for many different demographics. What I really enjoy about the vlogs is how realistic Barbie is. You feel as if she is a real person talking to you! Most importantly, she uses her platform to discuss individuality, forgiveness, and standing up for yourself and others.
