Fun and appealing, if perhaps too fast and complex for beginners, 3 June 2012
Author: TheLittleSongbird from United Kingdom

I found myself quite taken by Dance! Workout with Barbie. I do have 3 year old friends, who are very into Barbie, and when I visited them a couple of days back they played this video. Being somebody who does like Barbie(admittedly) I was surprised at how fun and appealing it was. It is perhaps a little rushed in the pacing, with some of the choreography while refreshingly less simplistic than it could've been a bit too fast and complex for those just beginning(I did notice my friends did at times get frustrated if they didn't get a certain move first time). Plus some of the colours of the sets for my liking were nauseatingly bright. However, I can't deny the enthusiasm from all involved, the demonstrations looked as though they were being demonstrated who loved doing it rather than for the sake of it. The aerobic moves are a little complicated at first, but brisk, well performed and more sophisticated than the "one, two, three, turn-around"(or something like that) moves. The songs are upbeat and sweet, and Jennifer Love-Hewitt is full of zest and sings beautifully. The girls are sweet, pretty and energetic, and the instructor is efficient and doesn't seem too stern or sugary. So all in all, beginners may find it hard to keep up at first and the sets may not be to peoples' tastes, but I loved the enthusiasm and its sense of fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox
