My daughter has most of the Barbie \"classics\", however, I wish they really would do more of the actual \"classics\". I like the mermaid and related topics, but it's a fun way to introduce your daughter to Swan Lake, The Prince and the Pauper, etc. I'm pretty sure we have all of them because they are sold at a good price and the length is at a good attention holder. I like the way Barbie is portrayed a little more as \"real\" or \"natural\" in the opening where she is playing \"herself\" and not the stereotypical Barbie. If you're skeptical, give one of the \"real classics\" a try. My daughter is 8 and still plays them over and over. She loves to dance with the Twelve Princesses.
