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.
