Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse Talkin’ Barbie Review (Mattel)

What It Is

Mattel's Talkin' Barbie is based on Barbie from the Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse digital series. Talkin' Barbie comes dressed in a pink sweetheart party dress with a sheer pink overlayed detailed with metallic silver hearts and a glittered neck line. She also features some killer hot pink stilettos detailed with bows and ankle wraps and a metallic silver heart-shaped purse and necklace.

The doll also has talking features, which kids can interact with by pressing the different buttons located on Barbie's belt. To simply hear Barbie laugh, sing, and say 15 different phrases from the show kids can press the button on the right. Or if they want to make Barbie say something different they can hold down the center button say a phrase, then press the left button and Barbie will repeat the phrase.

Is It Fun?

Barbie fans, and especially fans of the Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse series will love interacting with Barbie and all her fun phrases about friendship, fashion, and of course Ken, that bring the show to life. The recording feature can also let kids act out their favorite scenes from the show and bring their own imagined storylines to life in a new way.

Who It’s For

Talkin' Barbie is for barbie fans ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

A maximum six seconds of audio can be stored. For best performance, speak into the microphone two inches away. Only the last recorded audio will be played back.

Four button cell batteries are included. These power the in-store try-me features, so we recommend replacing the batteries before use to get the best play results.

Before you play, make sure to remove the plastic try-me tag from the back of the doll to activate its full features.

Additional talking dolls include Talkin' Ken and Talkin' Raquelle. Each doll is sold separately.
