WHAT IS IT?
A Barbie doll that has been designed to look like a fashion designer. She is part of a collection of Barbies that have got different jobs and careers.
This is a standard size Barbie doll with a sleek pleat hair style and she is wearing very fashionable clothes. My daughter's doll is wearing pink metallic 3/4 length leggings, a black skinny t shirt with jewellery design and strappy black sandals. I think her outfit is good but very standard and I do not think it makes her look specially like a fashion designer. I like how her hair is styled and it is secure because even though my daughter has had this doll for nearly a year the hair still looks very tidy and it has not lost it's shape. This Barbie comes with a few accessories to make her more like a fashion designer, these are a small plastic tablet computer, a sketchpad and a tape measure. I think there were some other little things as well but I can't remember what they were and my daughter has lost her accessories now except for the tape measure that ties round Barbies neck.
WHAT I THINK
I like this doll very much and think her clothes are very fashionable even if they do not make her look very much like a fashion designer. I like the way her hair is because it makes her stand out from other Barbies, I like too that her hair has stayed in the style for so long even though my daughter plays with her a lot.
This Barbie does not stand up on her own but my daughter uses some doll frames we bought in America to stand her Barbies up. On some of the Barbies you can't see the stands if they are wearing loose clothing but this outfit is so fitted that you can see the waist clip when she is being held upright with the stand.
I do not think the accessories are very good because my daughter has other Barbies from this collection and they usually have better things with them, my daughter lost hers very fast but she did not care because they are quite boring and do not add interest to her playing with this Barbie.
WHAT MY DAUGHTER THINKS
My daughter is very happy with this Barbie because of her being different to other ones she has got. She doesn't play with her as a fashion designer because she is not old enough to care about fashion yet but I think her clothes make her stand out because of them being modern. She said she doesn't like the pincushion that Barbie wears on her wrist but has never removed it so she must not dislike it too much.
This fashion designer Barbie costs £14.99 and I think that is good value.
