With Barbie You Can Be Anything

My sister and I both grew up playing with Barbies. We had the Barbie Dream House, more Barbies than we could count, clothes, accessories, furniture, and more. I loved Barbies as a child and I still do. I loved dressing them up, styling their hair, and using my imagination to its fullest.  Kennedy loves Barbie and has lots of furniture pieces, clothes, accessories and more that belonged to me and my sister when we were younger. I love to see that Mattel and Barbie make things that last for generations to pass down and enjoy.  I wanted to share some of our new favorites with you.

Thank you Mattel and Barbie for sending this holiday package to Kennedy.

 I love how Barbie has evolved over the years, for example with Barbie Fashionistas.  It is the most diverse Barbie line and it features more skin tones, hairstyles, and body types.  There are 176 different dolls, 9 body types, 35 skin tones, and 94 hairstyles.  They even included dolls with physical disabilities.  I never owned a doll that was in a wheel chair or that had a physical disability and now Kennedy has one and I think it is so special.  I think by playing with a variety of dolls with different skin colors, genders or disabilities it helps children including Kennedy look for what they have in common with others and not how they are different.  Playing with Barbies encourages your child to practice kindness, caring, and helping as they play.

Barbie Club Chelsea Doll Carnival Playset inspires young minds to explore the world. Just like big sister Barbie, they love to try new things, challenge themselves and have fun and inspire kids to do the same! With five areas of play, large pieces with working features and a pet puppy, this Barbie Club Chelsea Carnival playset sparks endless storytelling fun. The Ferris wheel really spins and can hold three dolls!  Next, check out the bumper cars with rolling wheels and room for a small doll (or puppy!) in each give them a push to get the fun rolling. Imaginations can take Chelsea to the game booth to spin the wheel and win a prize, check out the balloon stand with plug-and-play accessories, and visit the photo booth to document the day. There's so much fun to be had!  There are so many fun Chelsea sets and they are all so cute.

Kennedy loves collecting the Holiday Barbie each year.  It’s the season to be festive and merry, a time when snowflake flurries make everything sparkle, and the warmth of holiday cheer fills you with joy. The 2020 Holiday Barbie doll glistens in head-to-toe gold. Her gown features a glittering golden bodice with ruffled sleeves and a tulle skirt with a shimmering snowflake-printed overlay. Elegant details include a bow detailed belt and chandelier earrings. Stunning, sparkly-gold makeup and sleek brunette waves complete her dazzling ensemble. 

Kennedy also received this Barbie Color Reveal Slumber Party set with 50+ surprises!  Kennedy was elastic for this one!  This giant set features more than 50 surprises that include a Color Reveal Barbie doll, a Color Reveal Chelsea doll and three Color Reveal pets! There are also repeat color-change features, a long-haired wig, clothing, accessories and storytelling pieces to play out a dream slumber party! And there's a game, scene elements and reusable packaging that add to the fun. Kids start by opening the bucket and emptying the 28 mystery boxes; everything can be stored back inside when playtime is over. Find the play mat, punch out the corresponding dice and games pieces from the packaging and assemble them; then use them to travel the game board and unbox packages as instructed. Once everything is open, begin the revealing fun. Remove Color Reveal Barbie doll from the tube, fill it with warm water, then insert the doll and swirl her around. The water turns silvery, and when the doll is pulled out, her features are revealed! Do the same to reveal the looks of the Color Reveal Chelsea doll and each of the three Color Reveal pets. Find the sponge, dip it in ice cold water and use to create color-change effects Barbie doll's and Chelsea doll's bodice. Use warm water to transform back. Repeat the wow moment over and over again! Flip over the game to find a slumber party scene on the other side, and use the additional pieces to play out sleepover stories. Accessories include pajamas, sleeping bags, snacks, pet gear and more! Kids can punch out the child-sized eye masks from the packaging to immerse themselves in role-play even more. They'll love opening this package, getting this slumber party started and playing out daydreams, sweet dreams and so much more! Which dolls will be revealed?  You can watch us unbox these dolls in IGTV.

Kennedy loves these Barbie Color Reveal dolls.  This was her first time getting the new Mermaid series.  The Barbie Color Reveal comes with 7 surprises and the Barbie Chelsea Color Reveal comes with 6 surprises.  A gorgeous mermaid doll is guaranteed, but each doll's look remains a mystery until revealed. The packaging is part of the fun - pull the strip to remove the outer layer and reveal a clear tube. Inside is a mystery metallic teal Color Reveal doll and four bags hiding surprises within. Remove them all and fill the tube with warm water, then insert the doll and swirl her around. The water turns teal, and when the doll is pulled out, her features are revealed! Each doll has a different combination of eye color, hair color, skin tone and decorated bodice, but the surprises continue. Open the bags to discover a mermaid fin, a necklace, a brush and a small sponge. Dip the sponge in ice cold water and use it to transform the doll's hairstreaks and face, her eyes and lips change color! With the use of warm and ice cold water, kids can repeat this wow moment over and over again!  Each series has a unique theme. These Color Reveal Barbie dolls celebrate mermaids, with colorful long hair and gorgeous mermaid tails.  Kids can collect them to mix and match accessories and expand the possibilities!  You can watch us unbox these dolls on IGTV.

Kennedy already has the DreamCamper, but was so excited to receive this 3-in-1 DreamCamper.  Give the bright pink camper a push to get the fun rolling. When it's time to explore, unlatch the front of the camper to reveal a pickup truck that seats four. Peek underneath the backseat of the truck to find a boat that's perfect for a fishing trip! When imaginations are ready to set up camp, open the side panels to transform this camping RV to a camping playset with room for four dolls to eat, sleep and play. One side folds down to reveal a pool and the other creates a cool, open-air kitchen space that inspires cooking fun. Between the two is a living room area for lounging, open the back panel to reveal a bathroom with a pop-up shower, toilet and vanity.  After a long day of exploration and play, send Barbie doll and her sisters or friends up to the roof, pull out the loft bed for Chelsea where they can sleep under the stars. When they're ready to move on to their next adventure, pack everything inside and close it up to hit the road again.  With 50 play pieces, the opportunities for storytelling are endless. It's easy to play out travel stories and outdoor adventures with the Barbie 3-in-1 DreamCamper because with Barbie, you can be anything!
