Top Ten Barbie Movies

The Top Ten

1 Barbie: Princess Charm School

Love this movie so much just rewatched it for the fifth time and I still love it would definitely recommend

I like this movie so much. I saw this movie more than 2 or 3 times

Just so fun to watch

This is one of the funniest movies ever. When they started dancing I could not stop laughing.

2 Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses

I have always loved this one. I feel a special connection with the characters as I have grown up with many sisters and no brothers. I love the music and would defiantly recommend this Barbie film.

This one reminds me of my real life huge family and how us girls would love to have a huge pavilion to dance in. I love how it show that not every girl is the same and even though they aren't the same they still get along really well. I am Princess Blair! - Cornbreadk

This movie. Amazing is understament. This movie made me the dancer I am today and I still have the case! The plot and telling is so good. One thing does not make sense though is the first dance in the pavilion. Lacy falls and it sounds like she falls on concrete. Then she pulls up her skirt like, 3 centimeters and she has a random scrape! She landed on GRASS. Still, I love this movie!

AHhHHhHh I live thisss you have no idea how many times as a child I danced to that iconic song

3 Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper

Hands down best Barbie movie ever! It teaches everything starting from the hardships of being a princess and her duties for her kingdom, how poor people can dream, equality, live, friendship even in the hardest times, love (sisterly, animals, relationships), and about the importance and duties in a family. This has to be number one, and I rarely even like to pick favorites! I love the pairs as it is ironic at the same time valuable, your background doesn't determine your fate or love. And how you could change through someone who is always besides you. A princess can be smart, brave, witty, and know which spoon to use! A pauper can have talents that are priceless! Best movie ever!

Best Barbie movie ever, possibly best MOVIE ever. Hands down.

Absolutely the best movie out of all the barbie movies!

The story and music are amazing

4 Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale

I just like it. Keep going!

I like rhis movie because of fashion.

I love all the characters and the roles they play. I love how Barbie has a voice of her own.

I really love this movie. It deserves it.

5 Barbie & The Diamond Castle

The best songs and just its amazing

FACT: This is totally the best barbie movie.

You can't not like it

This was my favourite movie to watch with my sister when we were little

6 Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar

It wasn't as great as Princess & The Pauper, but it's still grateful. - SweetPenny

This in my opinion was not a great movie. It sort of ripped off Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper which is one of my favorites. They even used the song To Be a Princess but changed it a little, still the tune was the same. I just think they are running out of ideas.

I absolutely hated this movie. Not only does it rip off an excellent previous movie, but it offers such confusing plot points that, even as a kid, bothered me. For instance, those brushes that change hair: they just come out of nowhere. They have magic in this world? Where did they get them? Why couldn't they just use wigs? Oh whatever. Kids, this movie is a punishment. Watch something else.

Coolest ever. all time favorite barbie movie

7 Barbie in A Mermaid Tale

Loved it I continue to watch it over and over even in 2019.

Love it u can never doubt this one so I vote 4 this one and it is totally funny but if I could put one more in the hat it would be, hello,all of them

In my opinion I wouldn't put any of the recent Barbie movies in my top 10, I would put Barbie in a Nutcracker, Barbie as Rapunzel, Barbie of Swan Lake, Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper and Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus well because they are the only ones I enjoyed

I have watched this movie many times and each time I watch, I enjoy it more. I don't think any recent Barbie movies are as good as these..I love Barbie and the Christmas Carol, Barbie diaries, Barbie and the Diamond Castle, Fashion Fairytale, Fairy Secret, Island Princess, Princess Charm School etc but my most favourite is Barbie in a mermaid tale. I love its sequel too and wish, if another sequel comes too. I love the story and songs (summer favourite) and I love the character of Merliah Summers especially in Mermaid Tale 2. - MerliahSummers

8 The Barbie Diaries

The film is alright. The animation was bad, but the plot went alright. - SweetPenny


The animation is awful but the story is decent

Love the drama in this movie! They should make another barbie movie like this, but instead of barbie, it should be skipper and the animation should more modern. A little bored of the princess stuff, they need more juicy but kid friendly movies like this one.

9 Barbie In the Pink Shoes

I just love the movie sooo much this the movie I used to watch. This was a really tough decision because I literally love all the movies except the new ones like 2016,2017

Why is this movie ranked so high? I didn't like it one bit...and that's coming from someone who usually loves Barbie.

Really enjoyed this Barbie movie the songs are great with a fantastic storyline

I loved this movie! The ballet I enjoyed, I loved the message, and the fact that they had the Snow Queen was awesome!

10 Barbie: The Pearl Princess

Best barbie movie ever

Most boring barbie movie in the history of barbie movies, even my young sister thinks that!

The best movie I have ever seen

It's alright pretty boring


The Contenders

11 Barbie: A Fairy Secret

I love it

I've watched this movie multiple times and I just love it! I'm 12 and I still watch barbie movies occasionally because they remind me so much of my childhood. The stories are fantastic, especially this one!

I've watched it multiple times and this movie is the best movie ever seen in Barbie History! I think this movie should come #1! I am like 10 now and I still watch them because they are such great movies

I love this movie! Especially the little accessories and outfits. The name of the store in that fairy place is cute too, Wings N' Things!

12 Barbie In a Mermaid Tale 2

Loved the first one and this one! but I think this one was better because there were more characters and a better storyline

Fantastic movie

Love this and the first one

Loved this movie

13 Barbie as The Island Princess

Should be number 1

One of my all time favourites!

Best one ever! - HelloUniverse

This has the best music and one of my favourite Barbie movies!

14 Barbie and the Three Muskeeters

Definitely the best Barbie movie made

As a kid, I loved this movie so much! I had to buy it on blu ray twice because I watched it almost every day! This is definitely my second favorite Barbie movie. It teaches great life lessons, and doesn't have the cliche ending like half the movie series where the girl and the guy get married. She puts love second and her career and dreams before the guy.

This film is a really girl-empowering, inspirational fun watch! I can believe it is so far down! This film teaches young kids (and adults) that although others may not always believe in you first, you can prove them wrong and achieve your dreams! You CAN do ANYTHING!

This film is honestly my guilty pleasure. It actually has some good lessons to teach young girls and is very entertaining.

15 Barbie as Rapunzel

Bruh this was the best movie. Most nostalgia and the songs are beautiful. Very underrated movie.
Rapunzel, 12 dancing, and pegasus > princess and the pauper
don't @ me

I have always loved this movie because it has a great message within: be true and never stop believing. And of course, you're never alone.

This has always been one of my favorite Barbie movies. I'm surprised at how far down on the list it is. People are voting for all the newer movies which are trash in comparison to the old ones.

I actually own copies of this, Swan Lake, and The Island Princess on DVD. I also own a copy of the Junior Novelization of The Princess and the Pauper. - PerfectImpulseX

16 Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus

I'm shocked, this was my most favourite barbie movie, lets just think about the music it has, Beethoven symphony!


Best original

10/10 honestly. Why is this rates so low I am shook

17 Barbie of Swan Lake

This one was lit let me tell you

I'm shocked this movie is ranked so far down! This movie was my childhood along with princess and the pauper, nutcracker, rapunzel, etc... you know? I was never intrested in the new modern barbie movies... their just not my cup of tea and never will be. Guys stay true to the classics!

Ever since I was a young kid, I've always thought that swan lake was one of the best movies, songs and dances. I loved the movie, but just like a lot of other one's I think it was popular for a while until newer and better movies came out

In my version Barbie goes into the Swan Lake, but GUESS WHAT, it turns out to be acid and Barbie drowns in it. - TwilightKitsune

18 Barbie: Star Light Adventure

Wait? Didn't the Cinema Snob review this movie in one episode of his Midnight Screenings series? - PerfectImpulseX

I like it because it's is very futuristic. But I will not watch it again for some time as it gets boring... Anyway I recommend it a lot.

My favourite movie I am a shooting star song is best in this movie I love this

This is my favourite movie ever, even though I might be too old for Barbie now, it is unique in every way, it's even better than Harry Potter!

19 Barbie: Spy Squad

I like this movie a lot but I don't think it's the best. In my opinion I think is Barbie charm school but all Barbie movies are over all great

I think who ever didn't make this movie one of the top ten I think they are dumb and don't have any sense in them they must be 100 percent weird! I love this movie out of hundred I would give it 120

I loved every second of this movie! The story is just amazing, the kind of romance is so adorable and the way they overcome their hardships is fancy to watch. I love this movie.

I am just speechless I love this movie it was fun to watch I learnt 1 thing from it which is "see it, then be it

20 Barbie In a Christmas Carol

Best one! Great lessons!

This is a great adaptation of Charles Dickens' novel. - ToukaKirishima

*writes "Barbie in a Christmas Carol" on Death Note* - TwilightKitsune

This is my favourite one so far. I just realised how much I am like Eden. Even though I don't like Christmas at least it teaches you some good lessons.

21 Barbie in the Nutcracker

How are all these new crappy movies before the originals? This is so sad the classics will forever be the best.

To this day, the nutcracker is one of my favourite male fictional characters

This movie IS my childhood! It was my all time favorite Christmas movie as a little girl! In fact, I still enjoy watching it! From Tim Curry as the Mouse King to Tchaikovsky's beautiful music - the first CGI Barbie film is without a doubt the best in my mind.

This Barbie movie isn't great, but it should be higher up. Children today would find it dull however, but if your child is very young and hasn't been exposed to very many modern things yet, this movie is great for them and old time fans of Barbie.

22 Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia

I watched this 20 times! Why is this so underrated? The music, colors, everything is so soothing. And the story is very amazing. I can't believe you guys put the cancerous barbie movies above this: Spy Squad and Starlight adventure were so boring and cliche.

Amazing... my child hood

This needs to be at the top

Bibble is a god (Bibble/Bible c’mon guys) movie was amazing. Laughed at a all the the unintentional innuendos. How much longer to the berry made us laugh for days.

23 Barbie Mariposa

I hated this movie when I was a child, but now that I watched it back, I love it!

My favorite with awesome story line

The best ever

This literally came on Tree-House everyday and this is why I love it so much!

24 Barbie Fairytopia: Magic of the Rainbow

How are Barbie and the Secret Door and Barbie Spy Squad above this? Come on, people!

I don't know why this movie didn't even make the list! The story line is amazing it overall it is one of the best ones.

This movie is fab

I love this one!

1 Comment
25 Barbie And The Secret Door

This movie is sssooo good! Should be number one

This movie is horrible the villain made me want to break the T.V.

The villain and her song are a disgrace to all the other good Barbie movies.

It is best Barbie movie before watching this I was wondering why all girls like barbie.after watching this I was one of them.

26 Barbie As Thumbelina

So much nostalgia.. Loved this movie no one can tell me otherwise. So underrated

I think Don Bluth's Thumbelina is better.

I watched this a long time after it was released and I did think I wasn't the best but it was cute!

One of my childhood movies! Should be higher up the list.

27 Barbie Fairytopia

This was my childhood! It was my favorite Barbie movie for the longest time.

So nostalgic and great

Best ever. U don't even knoe

I love the world the film creates... it really is an awesome movie.

28 Barbie: A Perfect Christmas

This movie is my favourite I don't know why it's number 34 I really like Stacey

I thought this movie was very warm because it represents love and happiness. I liked all the different personalities. this would be a great movie to just cuddle up in bed and watch!

Hate this movie! Like really it also has the least number

29 Barbie & Her Sisters in a Pony Tale

Hey I love this movie so muchhh this must be a top 10 list, I love majesty

love it

I loved the movie especially since I am a horse rider. It shows how to get off electronics and go outside, also how to care for family and friends, and lastly how to try your best.

This movie rules! Barbie teaches us a very important lesson in this story: we all have feelings, even animals.

30 Barbie & Her Sisters in A Puppy Chase

Love it

31 Barbie Mariposa & the Fairy Princess

They tried in this one but not much. I will give 5/10

This was good!

I loved the first movie but the fact that they changed some of the main voice actors and worst yet, the art style... It's still a good movie but it's so different from the first, it shouldn't have been a sequel of Mariposa.

I didn't like mariposa much but I still watched the second movie and looking back it actually wasn't that bad. It definitely is an original movie and has a good sense of humour

32 Barbie In Princess Power

like it

I didn't like her face though

It's fabulous movie.

This movie rocks

33 Barbie and Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure

Great storyline! Entertaining and fun to watch with all family!

34 Barbie In Rock 'N Royals

Love the story and songs

Has good plot

I AM IN THIS ONE the songs

35 Barbie and the Rockers: Out of This World (1987)

Come on these are the earliest ones.

36 Barbie: Dolphin Magic

Yes I love this movie
I even have all the toy characters even the boat

I have watched this movie at least 50 times with my daughters. Good songs, and better animation then some other modern Barbie movies. Plus who doesn't love dolphins and mermaids!

37 Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse

Its not a film but still


38 Barbie & Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure

Pupppies and Corndogs all a Movie needs (but a plot and Scenes and Actors you get it)

No offense, but How could you like this garbage? - TwilightKitsune

Love it the pups were adorable and it shows how siblings should actually care for each other.

It's a really great movie and I wonder if there are really treasures in the world! So curious!

39 Barbie and Her Sisters in a Pony Tale

Great for young horse-lovers! Timeless and enchanting, any child will love this.

Very predictable

love it

40 Barbie: Video Game Hero

I like this move a lot and love the story of the move and the way it's so all about teamwork
and the the people in the move looks cool and good. I love this move and think every one will like it.and I love this move a lot and a lot and a it every much and much,

41 Barbie and the Sensations: Rockin' Back to Earth (1987)

This is early Barbie.
Then in 1997 came the cheesy Aqua song Barbie Girl.
It was more of a toy her rival was UK doll Sindy who really disappeared.
Actually Sindy turned into one of those baby dolls.
