The minute Barbie Bubble-Tastic! arrived my daughter ripped open the packaging and decided it was time for a play in the garden. Its so appealing to six year old girls and their nosy baby brothers that I didnt get a look in.
Barbie Bubble-Tastic is basically a mermaid Barbie doll will a tail which is essentially a bubble wand and a string on her back which you can pull to make the tail spin at speed. It comes with a bubble tray and a bottle of bubbles so you can get started immediately. Not only this, Barbie has pink high-lights which apparently make her ‘even more awesome’. Suffice to say, as with all Barbie products this is a well made doll which, at least in our experience over the past couple of weeks, is fairly indestructible.
This Barbie makes a brilliant change from the usual standard Barbies and is very versatile. Fifi and Ned really enjoyed playing in the bath with her after they had finished in the garden and I can see this becoming one of their favourite paddling pool and bath toys this summer.
If you have little Barbie fans in your household make sure you have a look at the Barbie website where you’ll find loads of colouring sheets and other activities which are sure to keep them occupied during the break from school.
