Barbie has been around for generations. I grew up playing with the doll and now I have a daughter who is obsessed. Thanks to blogging, I get opportunities to attend awesome events and work with amazing brands like Mattel Inc. – Barbie South Africa. When I was invited to the #BarbieRocksSA event, I knew this would be a dream come true for my 3-year-old. She counted down to the day, planned her outfit and of course invited her best friend (her cousin) to join her in celebrating Barbie.
On the 12th of September, the Barbie in Rock ‘n Royals DVD launched at Montecasino – Johannesburg. It was everything pink and I think every little girl that attended felt like a princess. The event was themed around the DVD which was campaigned with a competition: Show Us Your Shine. Singing sensation PJ Powers performance was the highlight of the day which made almost every little girl run up to the front and join in the song and dance. It was a day my daughter will never forget especially since she came home with loads of Barbie goodies.
About the movie:
It’s an upbeat musical, with Barbie™ starring as Princess Courtney, a modern princess whose world is turned upside down when she switches places with Erika, a famous rock star. Two very different worlds collide when a mix-up sends Princess Courtney to Camp Pop and Erika, to Camp Royalty. While the leaders of the rival camps try to correct the mix-up, both Courtney and Erika learn to adjust to the different worlds and have fun while making new, unexpected friends. When the girls learn both camps are at risk of shutting down, they must embrace their differences, find their true voices, and come together for an epic sing-off that shows anything is possible when you dare to dream big! Barbie honors heroes like Princess Courtney and Erika who help break boundaries and prove girls can be anything they want to be.
The message: Everyone can unlock their dreams if they just try.
