What It Is

Over the years, Barbie has had more than 100 careers. Her newest is that of Dolphin Trainer. The Barbie I Can Be ... Dolphin Trainer doll is dressed in a glittery wetsuit and comes with a clip, which allows kids to attach the two large dolphin toys. When kids wind the mechanism on Barbie's back and place the doll in water, the dolphins swim around the doll. Attach the hoop to Barbie's arm so the dolphins can swim through it. The doll also comes with a baby dolphin squirt toy and a bucket with four fish.

It's easy to make the dolphins perform tricks with this doll and exciting to watch the dolphins spin around Barbie. Kids will like that this doll gives them the chance to play out the role of dolphin trainer and imagine a possible future career, which is what the Barbie I Can Be line is all about.

Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of

The spinning dolphins also work out of water, but they look really cool in water and give the play more of a realistic feel. If using the doll in water, the recommended minimum water depth is 9.5 inches. This toy is only to be used in water in which children are within their depth and under adult supervision.
