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

Barbie's a busy gal with errands to run, and kids can help Barbie get going with the Barbie On the Go Post Office track set. This is part of a new line of toys that incorporates the first-ever track set for Barbie. It features motorized scooters, cars, and ponies for four-inch Barbie dolls to ride. The Post Office track set comes with eight glittery pink and green track pieces that are easy to assemble, plus a variety of accessories that have different action features triggered when Barbie drives by on her scooter.

The set comes with a Barbie doll wearing a removable helmet and a blue scooter. The doll's hinged legs and knees make it easy for the doll to sit and ride the scooter, and the doll clip on the scooter keeps Barbie in place. Just press the button on the back of the scooter to set it in motion, and press the button again to stop it. Barbie's head bobbles as the scooter moves.

Going through the track set, Barbie swings through the door, knocks over a stop sign, triggers a dramatic package drop, twists a stoplight, and drops a package into the mailbox. A cart can be attached to the back of the scooter so Barbie can easily bring her mail with her.

Is It Fun?

Barbie fans will have a lot of fun telling all sorts of Barbie stories in this smaller and motorized size. All of the fun action features on this track set are really cool to watch, as is just watching Barbie scoot along on and off the track. This is a great way to inspire more imaginative Barbie play for fans.

Who It’s For

Barbie On the Go Post Office is for Barbie fans ages 4 and up. It gives them a whole new way to play with Barbie, which will be especially fun if they like Barbie dolls and toy vehicles.

What To Be Aware Of

Assembly is required but is easy to do. You'll need one AAA battery, which is not included.

This can be added to other Barbie On the Go track sets, such as the Pony Race, sold separately.
