Peppermint Girl

The Peppermint Girl is one of the supporting characters from the 2001 animated film, Barbie in the Nutcracker.

She is voiced by Britt McKillip.


The Peppermint Girl, whose real name is never mentioned, encounters Clara and the Nutcracker when they enter the ruined Gingerbread Village. She and her brother, also known as the Gingerbread Boy, are the only citizens still living there. It seems that they are high-up, judging by their fancy outfits. However, they are went out to gather berries with Marzipan, then only to find the village abandoned on their return. Clara and the Nutcracker take her and the Gingerbread Boy with them on their search for the Sugar Plum Princess, but both children are left behind when the older characters want them to stay safe. They are left with the locals and Masha in the Treetop Village and later travel to the Palace of Sweets to help Clara and the others defeat the Mouse King.

When the Mouse King is defeated, and his sceptre is smashed, everyone becomes their true selves (i.e, Clara - The Sugar Plum Princess; Nutcracker - Prince Eric; and any statues - human again) and Parthenia is back to its normal state. Everyone dances in celebration, with the Peppermint Girl and the Gingerbread Boy dancing first. Later, after Clara and Eric's dance, for it would be shown the Mouse King returns, now shrunk and sat on Pimm's back, but he swipe Clara's locket. The Peppermint Girl was surely throws a snowball at them both (with help from the young snow faerie) and he is presumably defeated once and for all.


  • The Peppermint Girl's doll's name is Patty. This could be a reference to Peppermint Patty, a character in the Peanuts comic strip.
