If you’re a parent, a grandparent, godparent, aunt or uncle, gift buying for kids can become an overwhelming task…. especially if you aren’t a parent of similar aged kids!
In order to help eliminate the confusion and indecision, I’ve started a brand new series on my blog called Toy Buzz: Toy Reviews by Parents AND Kids
The hope is that this new series will help you to be better informed about what’s inside the box BEFORE you buy!
A few weeks back my cutie patootie niece received the Barbie® Career Doll to review…
This Barbie® comes with themed accessories to fit her chosen career. We reviewed the medical doctor Barbie. She has a stethoscope and a lovely white medical jacket!
She has a realistic body type, lovely hair and pretty eyes!
The career series Barbies® are all unique with different body shapes, eyes colours and hair for each one.
“This Barbie comes with a proper mom-bod and I absolutely love that my child can have a role-model that is not stick thin but has hips and healthy strong calves! I love that Barbie® are encouraging girls to reach for their dreams and inspire them to be who they want to be”- Mother
“This lovely Barbie will provide many hours of creative imaginary play as children role play her career. It is so important that children get the chance to act out real life role models as this is how they learn and make sense of the world around them.” – Emma Reid
“Now I can be Dr Tessa (her doctor)”– Rachel, age 5
Childhood development skills
Creativity, imagination, goal-setting
Barbies are so versatile. Help your child set out all their Barbies and sort their clothes and accessories into sections.
Children can spend ages selecting different outfits for different occasions- perhaps Dr Barbie is going out for dinner? To see a sports match?
Have fun encouraging your child’s imagination by giving them some ideas of scenarios to role play.
Dr Barbie also loves to help patients, let your child come up with imaginary medical scenarios for Dr Barbie to assist with!
