Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the truest heart of all?
Once upon a time, there lived a royally sour blueberry, a fair rhubarb maiden and a dastardly deceptive mirror! Sweetpea Beauty knows that what’s on the inside is what matters most, but insecure Queen Blueberry can’t see past her own reflection! So, when a decree is handed down that only the most beautiful can rule the land, the Queen gets nervous and things turn ugly! Banished to the dark forest, Sweetpea’s fate seems bleak until a charming prince, a band of merry minstrels and seven snow peas come to the rescue! Will Sweetpea and her friends be able to warn the Queen in time to save her from the clutches of the tricky mirror – or will the crumbling kingdom and the Queen’s own heart be lost forever? Find out in this fairy “Veggie” tale about the real meaning of true beauty.

Plus, the almost-classic tale of . . .Snoodlerella.

A self- conscious Snoodlerella is the star of the ball after getting an extreme makeover. Her life of glamour is short-lived as the clock strikes midnight and her glasses, braces and insecurities return. Will she be able to see herself as the good King sees her—unique, beautiful and perfect just the way she is?

Resident Mom™ Says:

My 4-year-old daughter and I watched this DVD twice in a row!  This is a perfect video for little girls in the “princess stage.”  We are familiar with VeggieTales as we have one other VeggieTales movie, but this one has become her new favorite.  The basic theme of the movie stresses the concept that beauty is within ( “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”).  It is an excellent tool to help young girls (and old as well) increase their self-esteem.  Common fairytales like Cinderella and Snow White are loosely transformed to accurately define how beauty should be seen.  There is a bit of humor for adults in it as well. 

Pros: Everything about it! Increases self esteem. Fun stories and music that captivate.
Cons: May not appeal to some boys. (Although they try to, it is largely princess-based.)
