My girls are seriously the girliest little girls I’ve ever met, while at the same time being some of the most unapologetic tomboys I know. For my youngest daughter’s fifth birthday, she wanted nothing more than Barbies. Just tons of Barbies everywhere. She literally got seventeen new Barbies for her birthday.
After that party, all I’ve heard about is how much she loves Barbies. So, when we got Barbie and the Pink Shoes in the mail, she nearly passed out from excitement. To see her favorite childhood icon put on a pair of pink ballet slippers and dance Swan Lake….there is no greater joy to her little heart.
To me, the movie was awesome because I knew that a real ballerina was behind all of the moves in the movie. Check out this interview I did with Jenelle Manzi, the ballerina behind Barbie’s moves in Barbie and the Pink Shoes.
