Barbie On the Go Pony Race Review (Mattel)

Barbie On the Go Pony Race
What It Is

Barbie is off to the races with the Barbie On the Go Pony Race track set. This new line is the first-ever track system for Barbie. It features motorized cars, scooters, and ponies for four-inch Barbie dolls to ride. The Pony Race comes with eight track pieces in glittery pink and green that are easy to assemble, plus a variety of accessories that all have different action features triggered when Barbie and her pony ride by.

The set comes with a Barbie doll wearing a riding outfit and removable hat, along with a pony. The doll's hinged legs and knees make it easy for the doll to ride the horse, and the doll clip on the horse keeps Barbie in place. Just press the button on the horse to set it in motion, and press the button again to stop the horse. Barbie's head bobbles as the horse moves.

Going through the track set, Barbie and her pony swing through the doors, twist the ribbon board, twist the winner's wreath holder, knock over a flag, and trigger a pop-up flag as they ride up to the finish line. 

There is also a winner's podium where three Barbie On the Go dolls can stand, and a platform for holding the winner's trophy.

Is It Fun?

Barbie fans are going to have a lot of fun telling all-new stories for Barbie in this smaller, motorized size. It's really cool to watch Barbie and her horse walk around both on and off the track, and kids will also like seeing all the action features happen as Barbie takes her trip around the track. This will inspire lots of creative storytelling among Barbie fans.

Who It’s For

The Barbie On the Go Pony Race is for ages 4 and up. It's a fun combination of motorized vehicle play, horse play, and Barbie play for kids who like all three.
