Oh yes, Barbie, a fashion doll manufactured by Mattel, Inc., a name that we have heard since March of 1959. Ruth Handler, an American businesswoman is credited with the creation of Barbie – she used the Germal Doll called Bild Lilli to inspire her. Barbie is at the top of the list when it comes to Mattel dolls and accessories, including other family members, pets, and collectible dolls. There is no denying the fact that for over fifty years now, Barbie has been an important part of the toy market. Mattel has sold over a billion of these dolls, making it the company’s most profitable line. Didn’t realize there was so much history behind Barbie, did you? Today, Barbie is ready to get out of that play house and take on some adventure! Mattel recently announced a Barbie Dream Horse and today, we are here to tell you what we know so far …
With the Dream Horse, Barbie is going to have a lot of adventures and the Barbie fans are going to be there to watch it all unfold in front of their eyes.
Features Sounds and Motions
The Dream Horse features sounds that will tickle the little one. With each “neigh” this horse puts off, your little girl is going to have a smile on her face as she watches Barbie gallop around.
Not only does this horse feature sounds and motion, but it can also interact with the little girl through the touch and sound sensor. There’s different modes on the horse, which will enable different play. The horse is capable of walking and turning 360 degrees or neighing and eating (the horse comes with a bunch of carrots).
There’s a mode called Fun and Games. When this mode is activated, when you touch it, the horse will nod yes or no.
Plays Music and Dances
The Dream Horse can also play music and dance to a total of three songs. There’s just something special about toys that contain music – it really helps the imagination flow. Barbie is wearing a beautiful riding tunic, removable boots, a helmet (for her safety, because we wouldn’t want her bumping her head if she fell of that horse) and molded pants. Looking at her, she is obviously ready to ride into her imagination.
The horse is just as beautiful as Barbie – it features a pink saddle (because what little girl doesn’t love pink) and reins. The horse has a long blond mane and a luscious golden tail that adds to the excitement. For the Dream Horse though, the colors and decorations may vary.
Children as young as three can play with this toy – if you get this for your little girl knowing she is a big Barbie fan, it’s going to be her playmate for many years to come. The toy is user friendly and has various mechanisms that are controlled by simply clicking the buttons. With a simple click, Barbie can swing up into the saddle and get ready to head out on her adventure. You can put your hand on the horse and press a button and watch Barbie make her own move to get on the horse.
If you have a little girl that just happens to be a big Barbie fan, then Mattel’s Barbie Dream Horse would make a great present for her. Besides, every Barbie needs a horse to get around on!
