If there are three things my daughter loves then it would have to be Barbie, rainbows and mermaids. In no particular order of course. So you can imagine her joy when we were sent this Barbie Rainbow Lights Mermaid doll to review! If there was ever a doll made especially for her then this would be it! Ha!
Barbie Dreamtopia is an all new magical, make believe world imagined by Chelsea, the youngest sister of Barbie. Join Barbie, Chelsea and her puppy Honey as they swim through the rainbow rivers with beautiful mermaids and fly through the cotton candy clouds with fairies. Sounds pretty dreamy, huh? You can find out more about Barbie Dreamtopia here (and there are some fun games to play too!)
My daughter absolutely loved this Barbie because you can play with her both in and out of the water. When you dip the doll into the water, her mermaid tail lights up or out of the water, you can just press her necklace for the same sparkling effect. Obviously in the water, you get to play real mermaid games but we loved that it isn’t just a water toy. There are times when you can’t always play in water of course and it’s great that she gets to join in with other Barbie fun too.
My pictures don’t begin to do the doll justice I’m afraid as it was really hard to capture the sparkly lights. But when you put Barbie into the water, the rainbow lights start to flash. Out of the water when you press the necklace, they light up in the same way but they look even more magical when under the water.
Barbie Rainbow Lights Mermaid is available now for RRP £20.99 which I think is great value for such a fun doll.
