A little preachy in the message but colourful and has its charms
30 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Despite me not being part of the main target audience, I do enjoy the Barbie movies. They're not among my favourite movies but they all have their certain charms. Barbie Presents Thumbelina is not a movie I deem perfect, as much as I did admire the environmental message it did at times come across as too preachy, the dialogue is stilted and while I wouldn't call the characters annoying as such there have been more likable and less standard(in the types of characters that is) ones in the Barbie movies. However, despite some moments of blocky character designs(more in the human designs) the animation is bright and colourful, the music is catchy, the story, while baring little resemblance to Andersen's story, is sweet and charming with plenty of scenes to warm anybody's heart, the Twillerbabies are adorable and the voice work especially from the ever dependable Kelly Sheridan is solid. Overall, imperfect but perfectly charming. 7/10 Bethany Cox
