Princess Alexa is a newly released Barbie doll along with a range of other Barbie toys, especially for the soon to be released film, Barbie and the Secret Door. The film follows Princess Alexa, a shy princess but during the film she discovers a whole new fairy tale world and along with two magical friends helps to save the kingdom. Other characters include a magical unicorn, mermaid and a fairy.
Miss M’s face lit up when she saw Princess Alexa, she thought the Barbie doll looked beautiful and when I told her about the new film, she can’t wait to go and see it. Princess Alexa is a standard size Barbie with the additional feature that she sings! The dress on her bodice is solid and this flashes coloured lights as she sings. Her skirt is satin like and can be removed. It has some large flexible flowers on it which really help it stand out and look pretty.
The highlight of this Barbie doll for Miss M is most definitely Princess Alexa’s songs. To play the songs you simply press gently down on her arm and a song plays. There are clips of two songs, both of which become quite addictive and we all know the words now after hearing them endlessly each day. Even Miss M’s little brother Mister B joins in, singing along.

Miss M has loved playing with the Princess Alexa Barbie doll. She is a beautiful doll with great added features in the songs and lights. We are looking forward to the film Barbie and the Secret door which is released on DVD on 1st September 2014 and it’ll also be screened exclusively in Vue cinemas.
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and the Barbie was sent to us in order to write the review.
