I remember it like it was yesterday, we were in Indianapolis visiting my sister and her family. Mia was probably 2 1/2 years old. My sister handed her Barbie As Princess and the Pauper, they no longer needed it.  She watched it the entire ride home. That was the day the Barbie movie addiction started. It has been over 6 years and Mia still LOVES watching Barbie movies. When she saw the preview for Barbie and The Secret Door she couldn't wait to get her hands on the DVD.

She was beyond excited to have a viewing party. This summer she met a new friend at the pool that quickly became one of her best friends. They go to different schools, so they don't see each other as often as they did in the summer. Mia thought a viewing party of Barbie and The Secret Door would be a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. She wanted to serve food that was pink and of course popcorn for a movie viewing party. We made what we call a sherbet float by using this recipe and just making it by the glass instead of a whole batch of it. The kids absolutely love making these floats!

She set up the table by using printed tissue paper, barbie confetti, candy in clear dishes and of course Barbie Dolls from the  Barbie and The Secret Door and activity books.

The girls loved Barbie and The secret door, they both are really into musicals and this fit their personalities. They loved that it had magic, mystery, music, a mermaid and a fairy! I found them dancing and singing a lot of the time. That is when you know they had a good time!

As a mom I love that the Barbie movies are age appropriate. They are young, fun and engaging.  Mia has already watched Barbie and the secret door three more times!
