EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Build and play with Barbie with the Barbie Builder from Mattel. Combining classic Barbie doll play with construction play, the set includes a Barbie Builder doll, and over 50 Mega Bloks bricks. The Barbie Builder doll is construction chic in a white t-shirt, blue pants, and a yellow safety vest. A pink helmet, tan work boots, and an orange utility belt complete her look. There are two ethnicities to choose from, an African American Barbie and a Caucasian Blonde Barbie. Each is sold separately. The dolls are posable, and can stand on their own. The included Mega Bloks allow kids to build a pre-planned house or tree house or create their own buildings. Instructions are included for two structures but only one can be built at a time. Kids can build and rebuild as often as they like using the colorful bricks, along with fun pieces, like trees, flowers, and butterflies. 

Is It Fun?

This fun set allows kids to create storylines with Barbie pursuing a career as a builder, while engaging in actual building themselves. It combines classic doll play with classic construction play.

The set offers a fun way to encourage girls they can be anything they want to be, including a builder.

Who It’s For

This Barbie doll is recommended for kids ages 3 years old and up. The set will appeal to Barbie fans, and kids who enjoy doll play and building play.
