It's professionally crafted fluff, disposable as chewing gum, but likely to hit the spot for the specific female primary-school age-group the film is aimed squarely at.

It's an inoffensive light fantasy adventure that will serve your daughter well, just not anyone else.

Do you believe that children deserve something better than empty-calorie candy floss? Clap your hands if you do.

Everything about this 3D animation released on the "Disney Fairies" label (don't laugh) screams straight to video, or perhaps chirps it.

At the very least, the message it communicates is benign, mostly because it does not clearly possess any sort of message.

The usual warning applies: adults should steer clear.

The brightly-coloured visuals and frenetic story ensures this is little more than a cinematic stocking filler.

Harassed parents of daughters will probably buy the DVD.

Lest it get too preachy, cute characterisations and kaleidoscopic visuals help the medicine go down.

A sweet, safe bet to entertain young girls over Christmas.

Joyful, fast-paced, and looking as iridescently gorgeous as the previous three films...These Tinkerbell films do not get the recognition they deserve for their noble adherence to classic Disney storytelling principles.

Even if parents may be stung by the narrative logic, "Secret of the Wings" is still a wonderful sensory experience to share with your child.

A solid entry in the Tinker Bell franchise that will play well to its target audience of pre-teen girls and won't feel like too much of a chore for dragged-along adults ...

The story is slight, but the gentle humour and mild suspense will keep young viewers engaged, and the animation provides its own magic, particularly in the moments when Tink sets foot inside the Winter Woods and her wings gain a shimmering iridescence.

A worthy message, quietly delivered.

Even if fairies stories tend to be formulaic - fairy is happy, fairy gets in trouble, fairy gets out of trouble and learns a lesson - this one introduces the bold-ish concept of the sisters' bond rather than the usual marriage plot.

The film is ... confident tackling real issues - global warming, prejudice - yet never patronises while maintaining a determinedly child-friendly vibe.
