Mia and I were lucky enough to be asked if we would like to test and review the new Barbie Secret Agent doll from the Barbie Spy Squad. I let her know about the Barbie a week before we received it and she asked everyday if it came in the mail. Well it came and Mia loves it.
So who is the Spy Squad Barbie?
The Spy Squad Barbie is a world-class gymnast that has been recruited to be a world-class secret agent along with two of her friends. Barbie uses her awesome gymnast moves; cartwheels and flips. Barbie comes outfitted in a purple bodysuit with a utility belt, boots and a removable sparkly pink trench coat and sunglasses.
How does Barbie Cartwheel and Flip?
The Barbie comes with a “spy gadget” device that allows the doll to perform cartwheels and flips. The device attaches to her back and is fairly easy to attach. I thought this was a really cool idea, but it was a bit difficult for my four year old to maneuver. Since it was a bit difficult, she played with it without the device.
The Final Verdict?
We loved that Barbie was a Spy and a gymnast. We thought the outfit was super cool and fun. The jacket and sunglasses were removable, but the purple spy outfit was not, so we were limited in dressing her in other outfits. My daughter loved her hair, blonde with a pink streak. She thought that was super fun. She really liked the cartwheels and flips the Barbie was able to do, but with my help. As mentioned above it was a bit hard for her to work. All in all, she loved the Barbie and was super excited to add to her collection.
