This Summer Barbie is taking her style seriously with the release of the new Barbie Fashionistas and Barbie Style Dolls.
We all know that we can’t live in the same outfit so the Barbie Fashionista dolls portray Barbie and her friends in a variety of outfits and looks. The Barbie fashionistas range includes 14 different face shapes, 8 skin colours, 18 eye colours and 22 hair styles with 23 different hair colours plus a fabulous range of fashions to collect. The Barbie Fashionistas are priced at around £9.99 and are not as articulated as the more expensive dolls with only the shoulders, hips and head able to move. This does not prevent play though and with an outfit and matching accessories, these dolls are still loads of fun and a great collectible.
The Barbie Style dolls take style to the next level with some fabulous fashion details. With the new Flats to Heels articulated ankles that allow the dolls to alternate their shoes to match their outfits. The attention to detail on the dolls include eyelashes which look fantastic and the detail that has gone into the clothes show why these dolls are at the higher £19.99 price. The accessories with the dolls are also of a lot higher standard which is in keeping with the rest of the doll. The Barbie Style dolls are articulated at the neck, shoulder, elbow, wrists, hips, knees and ankles giving a more natural movement and shape to the dolls.
