My oldest has always been drawn to Barbie®. I mean, really though, what little girl isn’t, right? We’ve even bought her collectable Barbie® dolls that have long been opened because she doesn’t quite understand why she needs to keep her extra special Barbie® in their box.
It’s Makenna’s 10th birthday!! Yep, the big 1-0. Like most of her birthdays we knew we were going to include a Barbie® doll but weren’t sure which one… until I spotted these finds!
Like Barbie®, Makenna has always been a horse lover. For her birthday in fact we are taking her to a local place called Horse Land (no joke). You learn about horses, ride them, learn what it takes to take care of a horse, just all kinds of fun things (for her. I’m not a “lets get dirty” fan).
The Barbie® doll and Tawny™ horse would be so perfect, I just knew it! One of Barbie’s best friends is Tawny. She’s a caramel-colored mare who complements Barbie® with her pink saddle, bridle and reins. While Barbie® sports a shimmering, horse-themed top of blue, pink and white with shiny brown riding boots and a belt that match Tawny™ horse’s beautiful brown hooves perfectly. Plus, the equestrienne needs to be safe so Barbie® has a matching pink helmet too of course.
Tawny can be fed carrots or hay and then nuzzles Barbie doll to say thank you – simply push the front of her saddle to activate the motion. Push the back of the saddle and she will bend her neck all the way down to eat.
Kendall snuck in some play-time while her sister was at school. She loves horses too so I’m sure this toy is going to get a lot of use.
If your little Barbie lover would enjoy Barbie® doll and Tawny™ horse for the upcoming holiday season, be sure to check out Walmart, Toys ‘R’ Us, Target or Amazon.
Another set we got Makenna for her birthday is the Barbie® Sisters’ Deluxe Camper™ Sisters’ Deluxe Camper™ because of course, Barbie can bring along Tawny on a camping trip with her sister, right? The set is themed after the Life in the Dreamhouse TV show which both of my girls love. We love catching up on old episodes on Netflix when we can.
With plenty of room for Barbie® doll, her sisters and their friends, this is one glam ride! The cab detaches to transform into a hot tub, perfect for a spa or pool party on the go. The camper features everything a doll could need for first-class glamping (glamorous camping). The kitchen has a lemonade dispenser, and the BBQ grill flips over to become a table for indoor or outdoor dining! There’s eve a full bathroom with a stylish shower curtain, and plenty of beds so the girls can sleep in comfort! And of course, the camper wouldn’t be complete without glam details like a TV and chandelier. Additional themed accessories include two chairs, a frying pan and a fire pit with s’mores makings!!
Finally, it is time to open the presents!! Makenna was so excited and ripped open my gorgeous wrapping job in no time flat!
As soon as she saw the horse she FLIPPED out. She didn’t even want to open anything else! The girls quickly began playing with the Barbie® sets. Now I really can’t wait until this weekend when we take her to Horseland, she’s really going to freak out then!
There’s nothing to assemple, you just take Barbie® and Tawny out of the box and your little girl (or boy!) will be hanging out with Barbie® and ready to ride. I love watching Makenna’s imagination run wild when she’s playing with the Barbie® dolls. She becomes whatever the role Barbie® is playing; she becomes a little mommy when she’s talking to Barbie’s sister, she becomes chef when it’s time out cook, and with the addition of the Barbie® Sisters’ Deluxe Camper™ in the house she now pretends to be the Campground Manager which she says helps to keep the camp area clean and the animals safe.
