There is something magical about playing with Barbie. Based on the “Barbie Dreamtopia” show and movie, “Barbie Dreamtopia Brush ‘n Sparkle Princess” lets my daughter’s imagination soar. She loves to take her doll on amazing magical adventures to lands filled with mermaids, princesses and fantastical creatures.
“Barbie Dreamtopia Brush ‘n Sparkle” princess, has long blonde hair that you can brush and style. Inside the brush has a magnet that activates the “sparkle”. As you brush down Barbies hair her bodice will light up and play music. It plays 2 different sound sequences, one featuring the “Dreamtopia” theme song.
Her tiara is removable. It is held on with plastic tag ties that are difficult to remove without cutting Barbie’s hair. We did get them cut close enough to her head so that no sharp points are sticking out. After these tags are removed the tiara still stays on.
The bodice lights up as the brush comes close to Barbie’s shoulder area. If the brush happens to be lost you can press the star on her bodice and she will still light up and play music.
Barbie’s skirt is removable and underneath she sports a plastic skirt. I have mixed feelings on the plastic clothing. It is nice that Barbie is always clothed and ready to take out at a moments notice. The plastic clothing also restricts the clothing she can wear.
The speaker is encased in her skirt. There is no volume control on her, or an on/off switch that I could find. I would like to have these controls on the doll so that she could be stored or played with at times when sound isn’t appropriate.
She moves at the neck and shoulders. Her legs do not bend at all, nor does she bend at the elbows or knees. This is a bit restricting when playing with the doll in a dollhouse.
My daughter loves the lights and music of the “Barbie Dreamtopia Brush ‘n Sparkle Princess”. She enjoys brushing and styling her hair in preparation for their amazing magical adventures together.
