I've had the opportunity to see a number of these Barbie flicks and they're uniformly targets at little girls and so portray a fairly formulaic fantasy land of fairies and adventure. By and large I think that kind of story telling is benign in the long run.
This film stood out to me with the bizarre mixture of shopping and royalty. Per the film fairies create out of magic all the stuff in the fancy stores and in fairyland life is portrayed as one endless shopping excursion. For all of the characters their only real 'normal' activity is shopping for stuff (note I didn't say buying as that's never actually a part of the process, just walking around with bags of fashion garments). The rest of the time the characters are in some sort of interpersonal conflict or peril.
Fantasy and play are part of being a kid and that's a grand way for them to experiment with human roles. This peculiar shopping fantasy land and it's direct tie to a excessive vanity is pure mental poison.
I don't know that I would recommend the other Barbie movies but their not cognitively poisonous in relating real world situations like this one.
