Love this my favorite movie

2 Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses

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!

Barbie is an icon. But this movie is so iconic that it inspired me to become a dancer.

The best.

This was like my childhood HANDS DOWN BEST BARBIE MOVIE EVER

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!

Clearly THE BEST Barbie movie. This film was my childhood, and I can still recite the song lyrics! I loved the soundtrack!

This will always be my favorite Barbie movie. There are a lot of things to like about it but since plenty of people have already mentioned them, I'm going to talk about the soundtrack. This has the best soundtrack of any Barbie movie, hands down. While there are some good ones (On Top of The World from Princess Charm School, another one of my favorites is just one example) Princess and the Pauper has Free, I Am A Girl Like You, To Be A Princess, and (the most underrated Barbie song of all time) How Can I Refuse?

6 Barbie: The Princess & The Popstar

Coolest ever. all time favorite barbie movie

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.

This is one of the worst. They were so ungrateful and didn’t even do justice to Princess and the Pauper. Sorry not sorry.

7 Barbie in A Mermaid Tale

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

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

I actually saw this one so I'll vote for it

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

8 The Barbie Diaries


The animation is awful but the story is decent

This isn't my least favorite Barbie movie, but it is by far not my favorite. The classics like Princess and the Pauper and 12 Dancing Princesses are way better in my opinion.

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

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

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

Barbie's legs broke and she had to go to hospital, so no one wore the Pink Shoes. The End. - TwilightKitsune

10 Barbie: The Pearl Princess

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

Really really good movie

14 Barbie and the Three Muskeeters


This movie inspired me a lot I love most of th e barbie movies very much. My top seven barbie movies are-
1.Barbie princess charm school
2.Barbie the princess and the popstar
3. Barbie a fashion fairytale
4. Barbie and the three musketeers
5.Barbie and her sisters in a pony tale
6.Barbie the pearl princess
7. Barbie in the pink shoes

She kicks ass! She saved the prince! Why is princess charm school #1?! What did Sofia do that is impressive?! All I see is sucking, sucking, swept off, sucking, sucking, lucky, sucking, swept off! While Courtney saved the prince not once, but twice!

This movie is a energetic and inspiring for all the girls waiting to achieve their dreams against the hard circumstances in their life.

15 Barbie as Rapunzel

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.

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

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.

Why isn't this is the top 10? I love this movie! The old Barbie movies remain my favourites and should be in the top 10, this includes Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper, Barbie of Swan Lake, Barbie and the Magic of Pegasus and Barbie and the Nutcracker

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

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

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!

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.

I hate that movie. If I watched the Nutcracker from Disney, it’s going to be better.

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

Real antagonists this movie has

23 Barbie Mariposa

One of my favorites.

24 Barbie Fairytopia: Magic of the Rainbow

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

This movie is fab

I love this one!

25 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.

26 Barbie And The Secret Door

This movie is sssooo good! Should be number one

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

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.

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

love it

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

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.

Never heard of it.

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

35 Barbie and Her Sisters in the Great Puppy Adventure
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 & 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!

I like this move a lot and love the story of the move and the way it's so all about teamwork

39 Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse

Its not a film but still

40 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

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.
