Yes, they do have a lot of commercial spin-offs and a high saccarine count, but the quality of the Barbie films we have subsequently bought or rented, including "12 Dancing Princesses," was significantly higher than I had expected. They have not just kept my children engrossed for hours - including my son as well as my daughter - but introduced them to some beautiful stories and truly wonderful music.
On more than one occasion I have been listening to a CD of a classic such as Beethoven's pastoral symphony, or "The Queen of the Night's aria" from Mozart's magic flute, and my five year old daughter has recognised and expressed appreciation of the music, and correctly remembered which Barbie film had used it. ("Magic of Pegasus" and "Mermaidia" respectively.)
The soundtrack to "Twelve Dancing Princesses" is mostly adapted from some of Mendelsohn's best work, including "A Midsummer night's dream" and the Scottish and Italian symphonies. It also includes a lullaby sung to the King by the 12 princesses which was based on a 16th century anthem by Byrd, the recording of which was sung beautifully by Melissa Lyons and the Women's Occidental Glee club.
The story is loosely based on the familiar children's story. "Barbie" plays "Princess Genevieve", the seventh of 12 daughters of a widowed King.

As with most of the other Barbie movies, this one is based on an original fairy tale where a magic world opens up allowing the 12 sisters to dance and enjoy a secret world hidden from the evil Baroness who has come to steal the throne (think Sound of Music for little girls).
There is some beautiful music in this one and the animation for the dancing is superb.
This one was a big favourite with my kids (boy 7, girl 3) until other Barbie movies came out but it's still one they're more than happy to watch, particularly to enjoy the songs.
If your little girls like dancing and Barbie you must buy this!!!
