We are Barbie mad (as you might have already gathered!) so the release of a new Barbie movie is always exciting for my girls! Having already seen the adverts on tv for the new Barbie™ Star Light Adventure DVD my girls were over the moon (pun intended) when we were sent this amazing new doll to review.
Barbie™ Star Light Adventure comes with this space age looking doll and her little sidekick pet who really flies. Yes, I did say she really flies! Barbie has a wand that attaches to her hand, you press a button on the her leg and up, up and away goes the flying cat! It has propellers attached to the pet’s space suit that spin and it flies up and around in the air. I must admit that I wondered if it really would fly as well as it does on the tv advert (I mean, we are talking about a flying cat here!) but it really really does! We couldn’t believe just how brilliant it was! (It was also quite tricky to capture a photo of it so I hope you get the idea!)
Barbie has glittery silver streaks in her hair and is wearing a super cool space outfit with silver boots. The wand can be clipped on and off her hand which is great because you can play with her as a proper doll too. The little pet cannot be removed from its space suit though but I have to say that this hasn’t spoilt how my daughter has played with it. The fact that it can fly makes it an awesome toy and it spends most of its time in the air! Priced at £22.99 RRP I think it is great value given what tricks it does. We have never had a Barbie quite like this before! (I must add though that the doll does need batteries that are not included.)
In her brand new DVD adventure, Barbie™ Star Light Adventure, Barbie is a cosmic princess who flies high on her hoverboard through a far-off universe with her adorable and devoted pet sidekick Pupcorn. One day, everything changes when the twinkling stars start to dim and slow their dance in the sky. Barbie travels to a beautiful new planet to join a special rescue team on a mission to save the stars. Once there, she teams up with a group of talented new friends who work together to save the galaxy through exciting hoverboarding adventures. Barbie soon discovers that if she listens to her heart, and with the help of her friends, she might be the leader the whole universe has been waiting for!
Barbie™ Star Light Adventure in available on DVD and digital download from 5th September and you can visit barbie.com now for your own cosmic adventure or to download the Barbie Life app.
