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

Plan a getaway vacation with Barbie to her Barbie Glam Getaway House. This 2.5 foot playset can actually fold up for take-along fun on a real vacation. Unfold it to reveal the play space, complete with three rooms and more than 20 furniture and accessory pieces. And some of the pieces are plug-and-play, meaning they stick to the playset, while the rest can be stored in Barbie's bedroom toy box.

The bathroom mirror swings open to reveal the upper half of a shower stall, complete with shower head and towel rod for the fabric towel. In the bedroom, there's a bed with soft blanket, and a pink chandelier hangs from the ceiling. Use the toy box as a nightstand, while the foot of the bed can be a shelf for other accessories. In the kitchenette, Barbie can whip up meals and eat them comfortably at the fold-out table while sitting in one of the two stools. The playset also has an opening door so that Barbie can invite over some friends.

Play accessories include utensils, plates, cups, a pot, a tea kettle, an alarm clock, a hair dryer, a brush, flowers in a vase, a perfume bottle, and a pillow.

Is It Fun?

If you don't have enough space in the playroom for a Dream House, the Glam Getaway House is a nice alternative because it's smaller and portable. Kids will love how it looks like a cozy cottage when all folded up but opens to reveal a chic interior with all the essentials. There are lots of fun surprises in this playset, and it makes a wonderful dollhouse for any Barbie doll collection. It will inspire a lot of imaginative play for Barbie fans.

Who It’s For

The Barbie Glam Getaway House is for ages 3 and up.
