There is something magical about rainbows. They bring a smile to my daughter’s face each time she sees one, even when it is found in Barbie’s hair.
The “Barbie Rain Sparkle Hair” doll comes with Barbie, t-shirt, silver skirt, black shoes, silver skirt, pink brush, glitter comb, 3 barrettes and 2 elastics.
Barbie features extra-long hair that measures approximately 7.5 inches in length. The top of her hair is the traditional ‘Barbie blonde’ that I have come to expect from Barbie, but underneath is a vibrant colour rainbow of 5 colours: purple, blue, yellow, orange and pink.
My daughter loves how long this Barbie’s hair is. The brush has bristles that are spread wide apart which makes it easier for her to comb through her hair. The length makes it easier for my daughter to practice her braiding and to create unique hairstyles.
Attach the gel to the comb and squeeze it to add glitter gel to Barbie’s hair. The gel comes out of small holes in the comb. It can be washed out with water. I have not been able to track down any replacement gel once the tube is used.
I love that this Barbie has a realistic body shape. I was disappointed to find that Barbie’s knees and elbows do not bend. This makes it difficult to fit her into my daughter’s dollhouse and cars. Her arm is permanently bent at the elbow which makes it hard to get her dressed. Barbie does move at the neck, shoulder and hips.
The “Rainbow Sparkle Hair” Barbie fits seamlessly in with my daughter’s other sets.
This colourful Barbie will bring out your little one’s inner fashionista as she creates unique and amazing hairstyles.
