Mattel Barbie Doggie Park
PRODUCT: Mattel Barbie Doggie Park (http://origin.uk.barbie.com)
DESCRIPTION: A Barbie playset, including Barbie doll with removable skates, helmet and hairbrush, 'walking' dog and puppies, dog lead, carousel, picnic hamper with blanket and dog treats. Requires 2 x AAA batteries. Suitable for children aged 3 years upwards.
GOOD POINTS: This is a great playset from the Barbie range and includes lots of accessories to ensure your child engages in plenty of imaginative play.
The set includes the essential full-size Barbie doll, dressed in a pink and yellow outfit, and kitted out in removable skates, helmet, and knee and elbow pads. A large brush is also provided for your little stylist to use on Barbie's hair.
Also included in the playset are Barbie's dog (with pink lead!), her two puppies, and a tree carousel containing swings for the puppies to sit in. The great feature of the set is that the dog is interactive and holds two AAA batteries which enable her to actually walk.
The 'walking' can be triggered in one of two ways, firstly, by placing one of the puppies on the dogs back. The dog contains a magnet which secures the puppy in place, and as the dog walks, the lead pulls Barbie along on her skates. Alternatively, placing the bone (attached to the carousel) in the dog's mouth enables her to walk and push her puppies round in the swing.
Other accessories are included for Barbie and her pets to indulge themselves in a little snack-time, and include a hamper, picnic blanket, sandwiches, dog bowls with food, and other delicious dog treats.
In our opinion, this is a fun gift for any little girl, and will provide them with endless interactive and imaginative adventures!
BAD POINTS: Barbie's skate wheels do not turn which makes it best used on hard, smooth surfaces. Also the doll must be correctly balanced to stay upright while being pulled along. There are some small parts in the playset which are prone to being lost over time.
PRICE: Approx. £20
