We are huge fans of Barbie at The Ana Mum Diary, having even played with them myself when I was young, though I was really rather keen on Ken too 😉
In this fantastic summer of sport, with the imminent start of the Olympics. We were extremely excited to receive a set of four ‘Team Barbie’ dolls to play with and test out.
With four champions in the team each wearing different sporty clothing, and additional accessories, including a trophy.
They are led by Barbie Swimming Champion: What’s so cool about the swimming Barbie, is it really does swim in the water, together with her dog which is also included. You simply wind her up, and flick a switch. Really easy to do, even for small hands. Believe me, we have been having lots of baths with Barbie, since we received her. It’s been a great incentive with washing Miss A’s haire, which is not her favourite thing. As we now wash Barbie’s first!
The next three Champions are: Miss N and Miss A were so excited to play with them. I love the idea of encouraging children to get involved in sports through play. Learning through play is so important. I also love that this Barbie series is from the ‘I can be……’ range. I truly believe that exposing children to the concept of them being able to be whatever they want to be from an early age, has a massive impact. Encouraging them to think, however far into the future in such a positive way ….DREAM BIG!
Here is Miss N, and her thoughts on the range:
As you can see, we really enjoyed the Team Barbie range.
They are available from all leading toy departments priced from £17.99 (Swimming Champion) and £12.99 (RRP correct at time of publishing this post) in my opinion a fantastic price for such well made toys.
That leaves me to say ‘Go Team Barbie’ and thank you for reading…
