Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper Review (Fisher-Price)

Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper
What It Is

NOTE: As of February 6, 2019 this item has been recalled.

Hit the road with Barbie for a camping adventure in the Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper. The voice of Barbie provides directions as kids drive, and then once they reach their destination, open up the back to reveal a play kitchen with a fold-out grill and pretend campfire. Pretend food accessories are also included.

There's room for two kids to ride together, and there are even two small seats so Barbie dolls can ride along. The camper goes forward in two speeds: 2.5 or 5 miles per hour. It can also go in reverse at 1 mile per hour. Lift or lower the shifter to change direction and speed, and place your foot on the pedal to start. There is a parent-controlled, high-speed lock-out to keep kids from going at the max speed before they're ready. The Power Lock brake system means that when kids lift their foot off the pedal, the vehicle automatically stops.

The car's working radio plays music and fun phrases when kids press the buttons. You can also connect an MP3 player, not included, to play your own music while you drive.

Is It Fun?

This is a really cute ride-on and playset for young Barbie fans, inspiring a lot of active and imaginative play. They'll like pretending to drive around with Barbie and go on imaginative camping adventures right in their own backyard, cooking up hot dogs, grilling up s'mores, and taking their favorite Barbie dolls with them.

Who It’s For

The Power Wheels Barbie Dream Camper is for ages 3 to 7. Two kids can ride together with a total maximum weight limit of 130 pounds. Girls who are fans of Barbie will have a lot of fun playing and driving in this ride-on.
