Alyssa is obsessed with all things Barbie at this point in her life. From playing with Barbie, to watching Barbie movies and reading Barbie stories -she is hooked. Its honestly the best thing to see, as it literally allows me to go back to my childhood and just have fun with it too.
I was so excited when we were asked to review a product from the Barbie estate range recently and couldn’t wait to show Alyssa.
But before I let her know and handed it to her, we took a trip to Toy Kingdom to have a look at the full range. She was in complete heaven and couldn’t believe how far her imagination could travel with Barbie.
When we left the store she could not stop talking about how fabulous the Barbie house furniture and accessories were. Alyssa’s Grandad built her a dollhouse earlier this year, so she was very excited about how perfectly it would all fit in the house.
You can then imagine her excitement when I finally gave her a pet play and from the Barbie Estate range.
She immediately set up a new room in the dollhouse for Barbies new pet and his stylish accessories.
Alyssa spends hours with her dollhouse and enjoys setting up the pets quarters in different rooms while Barbie goes from being an animal Doctor to a teacher to a model!
So much fun!
