Barbie Sparkle Studio Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Barbie Sparkle Studio is a fashion kit that lets girls add sparkle to Barbie's outfits. The kit comes with a Barbie doll, three outfits, three sheets of six adhesive patterns, a dress form, a burnishing tool, a pink glitter pen, a silver glitter pen, and a brush. Pick the outfit you want to add glitter to and slide it onto the dress form. Cut out the pattern you want to use, remove the adhesive backing, and place the pattern onto the fashion. Rub the burnishing tool against the pattern for about 10 seconds to make sure it transfers to the fashion. Then, remove the pattern's plastic film, and roll one (or both) of the glitter pens over the adhesive that is now on the fashion. Wipe off excess glitter from the fashion with the brush. Remove the fashion from the dress form, and it's ready for Barbie to wear.

Is It Fun?

This is an easy and creative way for kids to design their own fashions for Barbie. The adhesive patterns are one-time use only, so once you've used all the patterns in the kit, you're kind of done glittering. But you will have some cool new outfits to use when you play Barbies.

Who It’s For

Barbie Sparkle Studio is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The glitter can be a little messy, so you might want to cover your workspace before you start.
