Barbie in Princess Power is a movie that was released this pass spring. After being kissed by a magical butterfly, Kara is imbued with magical powers. After discovering she has these secret powers and some suggestion from friends, she transforms into Super Sparkle, her secret, crime-fighting alter ego who flies around the kingdom ready to save the day! But it’s not long before her jealous cousin catches the butterfly and also transforms – this time into Dark Sparkle™, her nemesis. Their rivalry takes to the skies, but when they discover the kingdom’s true enemy, can they put aside their differences to form one super team?
In this superhero role, Barbie seeks to inspire girls to discover their own inner superhero and showcases that there is no greater power than that of friendship and teamwork to overcome challenges.
I haven’t seen the movie yet, so I can’t give a review just yet, but having talked to a few parents, kids are enjoying it.
I recently did get a look at the brand new Barbie doll from Mattel, that was released in March 2015. I admit that I am rather late with this review and by now you have most likely already seen it on store shelf’s.
As with most Barbie dolls, Barbie Princess Power Super Sparkle Doll encourages imaginative play. With the Barbie Princess Power Super Sparkle Doll from Mattel, your daughter will be able to play out the transformation from princess to superhero just like in the movie.
Princess Kara Barbie comes sporting a light pink strapless gown with silver sparkle and a pink tiara. Press the button on the bodice to reveal Super Sparkle’s pink, purple, and silver star-printed cape. Turn the tiara into a superhero mask to complete the transformation. Simply twist the doll’s waist to go back to Princess Kara mode.
