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

The Barbie Dreamtopia Sparkle Lights Mermaid is a light up doll with a whimsical mermaid theme, and a rainbow inspired look. It features a mermaid tail, a colorful streak in her long hair, and a tiara. The doll was designed for play in and out of the water. It has a mechanical mermaid tail that lights up, and moves. A colorful light show is activated when the doll is dipped into water and by pressing the buttons on the doll's sides. The buttons also cause her tail to move in a swimming motion. The lights and movement last about 5 seconds but just push again to repeat. The doll does not swim on its own but offers kids imaginative play. Different skin tones are available, and each doll is sold separately. 

Is It Fun?

This is a beautiful, well made doll that is easy to activate, and fun for imaginative play in or out of the water. It would make a great bath toy for a Barbie fan. Kids can recreate Barbie Dreamtopia storylines or come up with their own mermaid adventures for Barbie. 

Who It’s For
The dolls in the Barbie Dreamtopia collection are for Barbie fans ages 3 years old and up. This doll will appeal to kids who like mermaids and rainbows.
What To Be Aware Of

To activate the lights and tail movement, press the two buttons on the doll's sides. The lights and movement last about 5 seconds but just push again to repeat. The doll does not stand or swim on its own. Different skin tones are available, and each doll is sold separately.
