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

I’m loving Barbie’s pink hair! Can’t wait until they start making the way into our house!
To Princess Courtney,
“Erika: I spend too much time thinking about who I’m supposed to be. I play by everybody’s rules that don’t seem right to me. I’m cool and polite on the outside. When I get a chance, I run and I hide. If your eyes are closed, it’s hard to see. What if I back down now? ‘Cause I’m afraid of what might happen. What if they turn away when I show them who I truly am? What if I lose my breath? When I throw those big doors open. Or tonight. Just tonight. What if I shine? You: Should I even care? They’re all sitting there. And everyone’s staring at me. If I step out in the spotlight, maybe I’ll be set free. What if I back down now? ‘Cause I’m afraid of what might happen. What if they turn away when I show them who I truly am? What if I lose my breath? When I throw those big doors open. Or tonight. Just tonight. What if I shine? I shine. Erika: I spend too much time thinking about who I’m supposed to be. Both: But what if I sing out loud? Because anything can happen. What if I stand up proud? And show them who I truly am. They’re gonna call my name. And I’ll throw these big doors open. ‘Cause tonight. Just tonight. I’m gonna shine. I shine.” All the girls cheered. Tori is my best friend. I am Tori’s friend too. Together, Tori and I watched “Barbie The Princess And The Popstar.” It’s my favourite musical. My favourite song is “To Be A Popstar/To Be A Princess.” Tori’s favourite song at the end of the movie is “Here I Am (Tori Version.)” Keira came to see us. Keira doesn’t want to miss the whole movie. So, I, Tori, and Keira watched the musical together. All three together. Then it’s time for the third song, which is my favourite one. Keira and Tori sang “Keira: To be a popstar is to know which spoon to use. To be a popstar is a thousand pairs of shoes. Have your breakfast served in bed. Wear some diamonds on your head. Get a foot massage. And mani pedi too. To be a popstar is to live a dream come true. Curtsey when princes come to call. Wear a new gown to every ball. All through the day, there’s just one way you must behave. Pose with a feather in your hat. Stretch on a golden yoga mat. Bend from above. And always wear your gloves. And wave. Shoulders back. And tummy in. And pinky out. And lift the chin. And slowly turn your head from side to side. Breathing gently. Stepping lightly. Smile brightly. Nod politely. Do everything you do with pride. Glide. To be a popstar is to wear your family crest. To be a popstar is to always do your best. Tori: To be a princess is to know which mic to use. To be a princess is to not fall off your shoes. To rehearse until it’s right. Give a great show every night. And have room service with anything you choose. To be a princess is to love your great reviews. Take in the latest fashion show. Fly for a lunch to Mexico. No time for friends. Except your dog. And your guitar. Tweet everyone your latest news. Sit for a thousand interviews. Love every fan. No matter how bizarre they are. Here’s a camera. There’s a camera. And a camera and a camera. And another autograph to sign. (Keira: Love Tori.) Tori: Change your clothes. And strike a pose. And work the crowd. And take a bow. And don’t forget to post it all online. Shine. To be a princess is to never act your age. To be a princess is to make the world your stage. Oh. Oh. Oh. Oh. Shoulders back. Keira: And strike a pose. Tori: And pinky out. Keira: And change your clothes. Tori: And slowly turn your head from side to side. I see now. Keira: Here’s a camera. Tori: Stepping lightly. Keira: There’s a camera. Tori: Nod politely. Keira: Do everything you do with pride. Glide. Tori: To be a popstar is to always do your best. To be a princess is to leave them all impressed.” I cheered. I’ll promise Tori. She’ll promise me.
