Barbie Spin ‘N Ride Pups is a fun new Barbie playset available from Smyths featuring Barbie and her two dogs. Barbie rides a bike and the dogs ride along side on skateboards.
This is a fun playset with simple well built pieces that easily fit together for play. Barbie can ride her bike alone, or you can attach one or both of the skateboards for play. There are two dogs included, a big and small one each with appropriately sized skateboards which they simply attach to.
Barbie has a removal floral vest top, although her trousers are moulded on due to the way her legs are required to move on the bicycle. Her boots are removal and she does have normal Barbie size feet underneath, so she can easily be dressed in other outfits you may have. Miss M loved that Barbie has a removal bike helmet almost identical to her own. She has long blonde hair which Miss M tied back in a ponytail to make it easier to put the helmet on.
The fun part about this Barbie toy is that Barbie actually cycles along as you push the bike. Her feet clip into the pedals and her hands push through the handles on the handlebar enabling her to stay in place and move like she is really cycling. As she moves the biggest dog nearer her moves along too and the cute little puppy on the small skateboard actually spins a full 360 degrees around the bigger dog. You do need to try this on different floorings to get the best effect and movement for the small skateboard.
Miss M has a lots of fun playing with this Barbie, she loves the idea of her on a bike, being a keen cyclist herself! With a bit of imagination you can take Barbie on all sorts of journeys with this toy and she easily fits in with other Barbie toys and can bring her dogs along to share the fun!
