What It Is

What It Is

Over the years Barbie has had more than 100 careers. One of her newest is art teacher. This doll comes with a color palette, paint brush, easel, and canvases. Fill the paint can with cold water and dip Barbie's paint brush into it to "paint" on the canvas. When you place the cat next to the canvas, the paint brush will make the cat picture appear. Or you can place the flowers next to the canvas, and the paint brush will make the flower picture appear. There is also a blank canvas on which girls can freestyle "paint". When each canvas dries, the picture goes away, and girls can paint again. A lever on Barbie's back causes her arm to move up and down, so girls can pretend that Barbie is really painting.

Why It’s Fun

The Barbie I Can Be line is all about letting girls explore different jobs and careers. This doll offers girls the chance to play out the role of an art teacher, while also being creative in their "painting".

Who It’s For

The Barbie I Can Be Art Teacher is for ages 3 and up.

What to Be Aware of

Because this toy involves water, playtime might get messy. Make sure you play in an area where it's okay to get a little wet.
