OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Don't just watch CookieSwirlC unbox toys on her YouTube channel. With the CookieSwirlC Barbie Doll, you can pretend to film unboxing videos with her. Based on the look of the popular YouTuber, this doll includes a variety of accessories and three mystery toys to unbox. 

The doll wears a blue T-shirt with the CookieSwirlC logo on it. The shirt is paired with white denim capris and pink sneakers. Just like CookieSwirlC, the dark-haired doll wears black glasses, colorful bracelets on her wrists, and manicured fingernails. The doll's arms are only poseable at the shoulder, but her knees are poseable to make it easier for the doll to sit in her purple desk chair and make unboxing videos. To film them, the doll comes with a camera and camera stand, plus a smartphone, and the doll can hold the camera and the phone. 

There's also a desk to film at. A separate diorama with three interchangeable background scenes is included for the pretend filming. On the top shelf of the desk are two Barbie boxes of Holiday Barbie and Doggy Daycare Barbie, with detailing that goes all around each box. Also on the desk is a gummy bear, a laptop that opens and closes with the CookieSwirlC logo on the screen, and a kitty alarm clock. There's also a backdrop scene on the desk showcasing notes and drawings from fans, as well as pictures of all the surprises that you might find in the blind boxes. There are three different dolls, three things for the dolls to ride (segway, scooter, flamingo float), and three pets (two dogs and a cat). There are actually three different CookieSwirlC dolls, and you can tell the difference between them by the color of the gummy bear and the pretend Barbie doll boxes on the desk. This also means that the three mystery boxes and toys will be different, so you could purchase two CookieSwirlC Barbie dolls and get totally different accessories.

Some of the accessories have a plug-and-play design, which means you can stick them to the desk and they won't move during play.

The doll also comes with two dog figures based on the real-life dogs Lexi and Princeton. Pearl, CookieSwirlC's cat, and Goldie, her horse, can also be found on the backdrop of the packaging.

Is It Fun?

This is a pretty exciting Barbie doll for CookieSwirlC fans. It's kind of collectible on two levels. Fans will want to have their own doll version of the YouTube star, but they'll also want to collect all three versions so they can have a complete set of the mystery toys. 

Barbie has had many careers, and this definitely plays into what's popular right now, showing kids that they, too, can be social media influencers and YouTube personalities when they grow up. But until then, they'll have fun making up toy unboxings and other fun adventures for CookieSwirlC and her toys.

Who It’s For

The CookieSwirlC Barbie Doll is for ages 3 and up, and will be fun for fans of the YouTube star to collect and play with.
