Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
In this “Fantasy Tales Collection,” one can see the seeds of the inevitable Barbie-Ken breakup Mattel announced in February 2004: Ken's jealousy over Barbie's burgeoning video career. Barbie, the original American idol, has successfully made the leap to the screen in three bestselling computer-animated fairy tales, further enchanting her millions of admirers. This box set contains the first three productions, each of which puts an empowering contemporary spin on classic tales. In Barbie in the Nutcracker, Barbie as Rapunzel, and Barbie of Swan Lake, the titular doll is a plucky heroine whose kindness, laughter, and bravery embolden her to face enormous dangers and triumph over spell-casting villains. Distinguished actors in fine voice lend an air of class to these video Barbie-fests, including Tim Curry in Nutcracker, Anjelica Huston in Rapunzel, and Kelsey Grammer in Swan Lake). Sweeping, romantic classical music performed by the London Symphony Orchestra and choreography by Peter Martins of the New York City Ballet add to the sheen. Sorry, Ken, but a star is definitely born.
