5 Must Rewatch Barbie Movies to Relive Your Childhood

All of us have a piece of memory that takes us back to childhood. For most girls, it’s Barbie! The kind and charming blonde-haired girl with blue eyes filled our TVs with her adventures and heavenly songs. Barbie movies have influenced us in ways big and small. I mean, don’t tell me you didn’t dream of being a fairy or a princess when you were a little girl. Or that you didn’t think of giving ballet or singing a try after being inspired by Barbie. I highly doubt that!

One way to bring us back to these light, stress-free days full of fantasy and limitless possibilities is to rewatch Barbie movies!

Here are 5 must-rewatch Barbie movies to relive your childhood

1 | Barbie as Rapunzel (2002)

Two words: magical paintbrush. Of course, that’s one of the things in this Barbie movie that we’ve always wanted! How magical it would be to paint anything and have it come to life right in front of your eyes. But it isn’t so magical when an evil witch has you locked up in a tower, is it? Thankfully, Rapunzel had a bunny and a dragon as friends to accompany her. But of course, she didn’t stay locked up forever. She eventually discovered an exit that paved the way to a kingdom where she met Prince Stefan and lived happily ever after.

2 | Barbie of Swan Lake (2003)

Imagine being a plain village girl working at your dad’s bakery and suddenly saving a secret world AND marrying a prince. Yes, all of that happened simply because Odette followed a unicorn wandering in the human world. Layla the unicorn introduces her to a world under the spell of a greedy, ruler-wannabe named Rothbart. Underestimated at first, Odette successfully frees the secret world from the spell, all while being a swan in the daytime and only returning back to being a human at sunset until dawn. Beautiful and courageous, that’s Odette for you. Also, don’t argue with me about this, she has the prettiest gown!

3 | Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper (2004)

I remember having a bunch of character stickers from this movie when I was 4. It was, and still is, one of the most popular Barbie movies of all time. The princess and the pauper, two girls with entirely different lives find one similarity that fuels the beginning of their friendship. Both of them dream of having just one day free from the life they feel trapped in. And of course, their uncannily identical faces. They take advantage of these similarities to stop the villain’s scheme and marry the one they truly love.

4 | Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses (2006)

Ahh, I’ve always wanted to have those books with one flower printed on it. They look so simple yet so pretty! But what I want more is a room with a secret passageway. This Barbie movie feels as magical as the silver, gold, and diamond-made pavilion that the 12 princesses snuck into every night. Only their father was being poisoned by the antagonist in order to take over his kingdom. The royal cobbler Derek finds out about this scheme and informs the princesses. This eventually led to his marriage with the main protagonist, the 16-year-old princess, Genevieve.

5 | Barbie: Princess Charm School (2011)

Adopted by a poor family and ends up being the lost princess—yes, sounds cliché. But what I absolutely adore about this movie is that Blair doesn’t get the crown and the throne so easily. After knowing that she was the lost princess, she was continuously set up by her greedy professor to have her expelled and keep the kingdom for her daughter to rule. But Blair wasn’t a timid girl who would just let this slide and not have the throne she deserves. She fought for it, bravely and courageously.

You’re never too childish to be watching these shows again. If it makes you feel better, do it! Everyone wants to come back to childhood from time to time. Because let’s be honest, being an adult is too much sometimes. Besides, Barbie movies aren’t all about pink dresses and crowns. We probably missed it when we were young, but there’s so much more to it. This is the perfect time to view it from a mature perspective. 

What are you waiting for? Sit back and put on your favorite Barbie movie!
