Dolls are an inevitable part of any girl’s life. Playing with dolls is a very healthy pass time. It is important to teach kids not to only play but take good care of their dolls. Providing an educational benefit is a great bonus since they spend a lot of time role playing either on their own or with other kids.

The Barbie new collection of different professions is great, since it teaches girls all about careers in different fields so that they can imagine being  in that profession. It is never too early to start thinking about the future.

Ingredients/Materials

Plastic

Necessity Scale-3

This Barbie is similar to all other barbies. The one thing that I really like about this series is that they show case the different professions that are traditionally were not seen as suitable for girls. It really support their new slogan “You can be Anything”.

Price/Budget

Medium around $25

Siblings Friendly-Can engage together

Siblings as young as 2.5 can play with Barbie dolls with their older siblings. Dolls in general are a great toy for different age groups.

Durability/Multi Kid Survivor/Longevity Scale 3

In theory Barbie dolls can last for many years but in reality that is not the case. Their hair gets super messy, their accessories and clothes go missing and they just get boring. So the maximum quality play time out of each new Barbie is 2 weeks.

Development Friendly-Helps with specific skills

This doll helps girls learn about different careers and starts the conversation of: What are you going to be when you grow up?

Girl Friendly

This product can be used for any gender but is designed for girls.
