Christmas came early to our house this year! You can probably tell by the looks on my girls’ faces that they were just a little bit excited about the chance to review two of the newest BARBIE® toys: BARBIE® Doll and Tawny Horse and BARBIE® Sparkle Studio Doll.
After opening up the packages, I let the girls loose to play. And boy did they play … for two straight hours!
My original intention was for the girls to share the dolls, but it worked out that they both gravitated to one.
My older daughter loves imaginative play and role playing, so she instantly fell in love with the BARBIE® Doll and Tawny Horse set. She was in heaven with all the little accessories to make her play more realistic. She loved the little included brush that she used on Tawny horse’s beautiful, caramel-colored mane. She also loved “dressing” BARBIE® in her riding outfit, complete with belt, riding boots and pink helmet.
The BARBIE® doll is well-designed so she can bend just right to ride Tawny by fitting her boots in the stirrups and by inserting her hands in the reigns. With a quick push of the saddle or doll support, the Tawny horse can actually nuzzle and bend down to “eat” off the ground. So cute!
My super creative and artistic daughter was thrilled with the BARBIE® Sparkle Studio Doll! She is always begging to do craft projects and loves pretending to be a fashion designer. The BARBIE® Sparkle Studio Doll gave her the best of both worlds!
I admit that I wasn’t looking forward to helping her with a long, drawn-out “craft” project, but I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to add the cute sparkle designs to the three included outfits. It only took us maybe 15 minutes to finish all three outfit designs.
This picture just made me smile because you can see how much fun she’s truly having.
If my girls weren’t already the proud owners of their new BARBIE® dolls, they’d be high on their Christmas wish lists! They’ve continued to play with them every day since they arrived, and I don’t see that ending anytime soon!
If you’d like to put a big smile on a little girl’s face, then definitely surprise them with one of these fun BARBIE® dolls! The BARBIE® Doll and Tawny ™ Horse are available at Walmart, Amazon, Target and Toys”R”Us. And the BARBIE® Sparkle Studio ™ Doll is also available at Walmart, Amazon, Target and Toys”R”Us!
