This product was right up my daughter's alley as it involves dolls, fashion, and the all-important opportunity to mess around with GLITTER! She charged this toy package upon sight and played with it immediately. She enjoyed designing the fashions and was proud to show me her cool creations afterward. I expected to walk into her room to find a God-awful mess, but was pleasantly surprised to find none! The secret? The toy uses ingenious roll on glitter pens! Great job Mattel!
My almost 6 years old loves this doll. She figured out how to do the whole thing all by herself, it is really easy to do and the dresses look beautiful. I was a little reluctant at first because the package said it could stain our floor/furniture, so we were extra careful. Luckily, nothing was stained. The only two things negative I have to say are 1) I wish we could wash off the designs and do it again because there are more glitters than dresses. 2) I wish the outfits are more girlie. I would like to preserve my girl's innocence for as long as I can.
The Barbie Sparkle studio is a really fun project, my daughter is 7 and she really loves this set. The process is easy for girls this age, they cut the pattern, place on clothing, rub with a tool that comes with the set, roll glitter pen over the adhesive and it is done, she didn't need my help at all. The only complain was that it comes with just 2 colors of glitter!
This toy is fun for girls and my daughter loved the glitter as well being able to select the design to put on the outfits. This toy does have 3 different outfits to choose from and multiple different designs they can use to put on each outfit. The only thing I did not like was that there were only 2 different glitter colors to choose from and that it was hard for my 6 year old to transfer the designs onto the outfit. So, I recommend for an adult to assist their child with the design transfer process.
