One of the highly anticipated toys to hit the market is the Barbie Dream Horse and Doll. This toy set is one that can help your child create hours of fun and imaginative play. When it comes to fashion dolls, animals go hand in hand with helping bring the doll to life and kids of all ages love to play with these special additions to the Barbie line.
Though there have been many different horses sold along with the fashion doll over the years, this one is unique from all of those. Instead of having to rely on themselves to interact with the horse, this one is interactive all on its own.
Features Sounds and Motions
The Dream Horse features sounds that will tickle the little one. With each “neigh” this horse gives, your little girl is going to have a smile on her face as she watches Barbie gallop around.
Not only does this horse feature sounds and motion, but it can also interact through the touch and sound sensor. There are different modes on the horse, which will enable different play. The horse is capable of walking and turning 360 degrees or neighing and eating (the horse comes with a bunch of carrots). When your child feeds the horse, it will nuzzle against her hand in response to this. What’s even more fun about the Dream Horse is that when your child asks the animal a question, it can nod out a yes or no answer.
There’s a mode called Fun and Games where the Dream Horse can react in response to touch. So when your child is playing with the horse, it’ll move accordingly as a reaction. This makes playing with the horse both fun and exciting. It’s more realistic because it has the ability to perform over 30 reactions in response to your child’s method of play.
Plays Music and Dances
The Dream Horse can also play music and dance to a total of three songs. There’s just something special about toys that contain music – it really helps the imagination flow. Barbie is wearing a beautiful riding tunic, removable boots, a helmet (for her safety, because we wouldn’t want her bumping her head if she fell of that horse) and molded pants. Looking at her, she is obviously ready to ride into her imagination.
The horse is just as beautiful as Barbie – it features a pink saddle (because what little girl doesn’t love pink) and reins. The horse has a long blond mane and a luscious golden tail that adds to the excitement. For the Dream Horse though, the colors and decorations may vary.
Your child can let Barbie brush the horse’s long, blond, wavy mane and his matching tail with the brush that comes along with the set.
There’s also a saddle and reins included – which are both pink, of course! The fashion doll can proudly sit in the saddle and ride along with her beautiful horse. There’s a waist clip so that your child can secure Barbie to the saddle so she won’t have to hold her on the horse as it moves.
Children as young as three can play with this toy – if you get this for your little girl knowing she is a big Barbie fan, it’s going to be her playmate for many years to come. The toy is user friendly and has various mechanisms that are controlled by simply clicking the buttons. With a simple click, Barbie can swing up into the saddle and get ready to head out on her adventure. You can put your hand on the horse and press a button and watch Barbie maker her own move to get on the horse.
This particular Barbie doll comes already dressed in riding gear, so you won’t have to get that separately and she also comes with a helmet. This is definitely going to be at the top of many children’s wish lists in 2017! If you have a little girl that just so happens to be a big Barbie fan, then Mattel’s Barbie Dream Horse would make a great present for her. Besides, every Barbie needs a horse to get around on!
