Dreamtopia is a land where if you can imagine it, it can happen with everything from an edible lollipop forest full of cute happy pets.  Or perhaps ride the tallest roller coaster up in the sky on a rainbow.

Win a Barbie Deluxe Styling Head worth £29.99

Barbie is most girls dream doll and the idea of styling her hair and make up is the ultimate fun activity!  This Barbie Deluxe Styling Head is the ultimate toy for young girls to practice hair and make up styles, everything from curls to plaits, nails to eye make up.

barbieThis deluxe version exceeded my expectations in size, the styling head is bigger than I thought, therefore making it easier to use.  Barbie’s arms fold out, which is a great added feature and allows you to decorate Barbie’s nails with the various stickers and fake nails included.  Barbie wear’s a very sparkly pink dress and the whole styling head looks well made and sturdy.

barbie 2The set contains numerous accessories such as a hair brush, clips, hair ties, clip in extensions, curling tong, scissors, nail stickers, fake nails, earrings etc.

barbie 3My daughter is keen to learn how to plait hair and this was her ideal opportunity.  She now wants me to teach her how to do fish plaits.  She’s also had fun sticking nails on Barbie along with the nail stickers.  There is quite a lot to keep a child occupied and if they are into hairstyling and beauty, then this is just the thing for them.  The hair does need brushing a few times when first opened as it has a kind of spray in it to keep it all in place, but once that’s brushed out the hair is soft and manageable.

If you fancy having a go yourself (I did find it tempting to do a few fancy designs to show my daughter), or winning one of these deluxe models for your child to play with, then check out my giveaway below:

Barbie inspired fashion in collaboration with Mango

Barbie has teamed up and collaborated with the Mango fashion chain to create some pop art inspired tops.  It’s a great way for young girls to get into fashion but still have their favourite characters on their clothes.

WP_20151201_18_45_41_ProIn the range are a long sleeved white t-shirt and a grey cotton sweatshirt with a sequined Barbie logo across.  The range starts at £12.99 for the top and £19.99 for the sweatshirt which are fair prices for a fashion led chain and being branded with Barbie.

Miss M opted for the Barbie t-shirt to try out which comes in white, with long sleeves and a pop art image on the front.  The top is soft cotton and comfy, great for the winter months for everyday wear.  She wouldn’t be smiling if she didn’t like it as she can be quite fussy with clothes!

Barbie top MangoI think the Barbie collaboration with Mango is great and young girls will enjoy the clothes.  They are fun and comfortable to wear and young girls will love wearing them.

The Barbie collection is now available from Mango kids shops all across Europe, so why not check it out now!

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals Doll – Review

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals is the latest Barbie movie to be released which we watched last week and it kept both children glued to the screen, so Miss M was thrilled when the Courtney Barbie doll from Mattel arrived for her to try out.  Courtney is the main star of the film, a royal princess who ends up getting mixed up when she goes to attend Camp Royalty but ends up at Camp Pop.  She embraces her time at the camp and learns to become a pop singer which is reflected in this doll, who’s outfit can be changed instantly from princess to pop star by lifting the dolls arm!

barbie 4

Courtney is beautifully dressed in a pretty pink princess outfit, tiara and silver shoes and when you push her arm down her body spins around to show a rock star outfit of a glitzy pink, black and silver dress and top.  She has long bright pink hair and holds a pink microphone.  To transform her back, simply lift her arm up and she twists back.

barbie 3

This Barbie doll really does feel like she’s stepped right out of the film into your living room, and Miss M loves playing with her and singing along, as she also sings clips of songs from the film as she transforms.  You can also play shorter clips of the tunes by pressing the gem button on her necklace without her transforming.  The children loved doing this and hearing the songs again and again.

barbie 5

Princess Courtney Barbie has been a much loved Barbie in this house with her pretty pink hair and beautiful outfits.   She’s modern but elegant at the same time and I have to say one of my favourite Barbies of Miss M’s collection.  She certainly entertains us with her singing after school each day!!

barbie 6

Barbie Rock ‘n Royals has been a big hit with us, I think it always help bring a doll to life when she’s come from a film, as the children already feel like they know her and use their imagination to play out scenes that they remember from the film.  So as you can imagine, Courtney has been acting our her princess to pop star transformation lots of times here with us!

Barbie Spin ‘N Ride Pups – Review

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.

B1This 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

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.

barbie 1

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.

barbie 2

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!

Barbie Rainbow Hair – Review

Barbie Rainbow Hair is the latest Barbie to be released from Mattel.  This fashion forward Barbie looks stylish in her outfit and has long flowing blonde hair, waiting to be styled.

Barbie

 

Rainbow Hair Barbie comes in a dress and glamourous pair of black heels.  There are a also a selection of hair accessories, a blue brush, 3 hair clips, 2 hair bands and a colouring tool.

barbie 2

The colouring tool is like a mini set of hair straighteners which you insert the coloured palette into.  You then press the tool around some hair and pull down the hair to impregnate some of the colour onto the hair.

barbie 3

Miss M really enjoyed decorating Barbie’s hair, although to be honest I didn’t think the colouring tool was that great.  You had to press quite hard and the colour is quite patchy.  Despite my thoughts, Miss M was happy and also enjoyed the process of giving Barbie a hairwash after to remove the colour and start again.  (We turned our bathroom sink into a little salon while Miss M happily sat lathering up Barbie’s head with shampoo).

barbie 4

What really appealed to Miss M about this Barbie, above others, is her long straight hair.  It’s really smooth and shiny and with it being so long it was easy to plait and style, something Miss M thoroughly enjoyed doing.  She has spent all weekend, brushing and caring for Barbie’s hair giving her lots of funky new styles.

barbie 5

Miss M is 7 and has enjoyed the Barbie Rainbow Hair, and although I don’t overly rate the colouring aspect of this Barbie, I do love her long flowing hair which has provided lots of hair styling fun!

Barbie in Princess Power DVD – Review

Barbie™ In Princess Power dvd stars princess Kara™, a modern princess living a relatively normal everyday life, until one day she is kissed by a magical butterfly that gives her super powers.  When she senses trouble around she is able to turn herself into Super Sparkle, a super hero who can save the day!

barbie 2


Miss M who is 7, couldn’t wait to watch this film.  She was excited to see Barbie™ turned into a superhero, something a bit different for Barbie™ films.  The DVD comes with a pink superhero mask to wear and we settled down early on a Saturday evening to watch this.  With a running time of 71 minutes it’s the perfect length for young ones but enough time to tell a good story.  Super Sparkle acts as a superhero to save numerous disasters happening around town, rescuing people from danger and chasing after baddies.

It then turns out that the Baron of the castle where she lives is trying take over and it takes the power of both her and her cousin Corinne (who has the power to become Dark Sparkle), to finally save the day!

barbie

Both my children thoroughly enjoyed watching this film and in fact were glued to it throughout, I’d definitely recommend the Princess Power DVD for any Barbie™ fans who love an action packed adventure!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the products in order to write the review.
