Mattel’s Barbie DreamHorse (Age 3-7)

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!

Barbie Saddle ‘N Ride Horse

There are plenty of fun toys for kids who love dolls and the Barbie Saddle ‘N Ride Horse is one of them. There are tons of adventures just waiting for Barbie and her beautiful horse to enjoy.
She can enjoy her riding time with her horse alone or with her Barbie friends. This is a toy that allows for Barbie to be able to make a move on her own and any child will be thrilled with that.
It’s suitable for a child as young as three to use. With just the click of a simple button, Barbie can swing up into the saddle and is ready to get the fun started. By placing Barbie’s hand on the horse and pressing the button, Barbie will make the move on her own to get on the horse’s back.
She swings her leg up and over until she’s in the saddle. What delights kids with this toy is that when Barbie saddles her beloved horse, it actually moves a bit just like a real horse.
When the saddle goes on, the horse goes forward, ready to get started. When Barbie is ready to get off the horse and continue on her way toward a different adventure, all kids have to do to help her dismount is press the button on the horse and it frees Barbie.
Though the horse and the doll alone are great fun, there are also some fun accessories with this toy to add to the imaginative play time. The doll comes dressed in a short flower patterned tunic that features a ruffled hem.
The tunic is topped with a sleeveless blue jacket. She’s also wearing riding pants made of plastic in her favorite color along with a pair of riding boots that are brown.
Ever safety conscious, Barbie also sports a cute pink helmet that fastens beneath her chin for when she’s riding the horse. The horse is a lovely tan color with a darker brown mane and tail.
His legs move and are bendable at the joints of the knees and feet. He comes with a wide pink saddle that has plenty of detail that you’ll see on a real saddle. Attached to the saddle are the pink reins that connect to the bridle which is also pink.
The bridle fits on the sides of the horse’s head. After fun adventures, the horse will need to be taken care of with lots of love and grooming. Keeping the horse groomed is easy thanks to the brush that’s included with the purchase. Barbie will be able to keep the tail and mane looking fabulous.
