For the young girls who are getting their first Barbie, the hottest selling one for Christmas 2011 is the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll. If you are trying to decide which Barbie to introduce Barbie to your little girl we have provide you with a parent’s review of the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll.
Parent Review of the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll
One of the things both my daughters love is getting care packages from Grandma and Grandpa. Since they live so far away and have been traveling during their retirement, my parents love sending them postcards and gifts if they have to miss major holidays. Since my parents knew they weren’t going to see the kids for Thanksgiving, they sent a care package to the house.
We usually don’t know what my parents are going to send, so it’s always fun to open the box and see. To our surprise, we found two gifts for our youngest daughter – Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll and The Barbie Princess Charm School DVD. While we knew our daughter would love this DVD, we had not seen this doll before, which immediately caught my daughter’s interest. Here is what she thinks so far of the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll.
Fun Factor With the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll
Before I go any further discussing Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll, it is important to understand that this Barbie doll was designed to be a starter Barbie. Little girls who watch the The Barbie Princess Charm School DVD can play with the main character of the DVD, role-playing being the long lost Princess Sophia for her kingdom. For parents who haven’t seen the DVD, Blair can transform into her princess self after being crowned. To show this transformation, there is a lever in the back where you make the train of her dress come out, or crank it to make the skirt short.
To help portray each of the scenes of the movie, girls can dress Blair up in three different outfits, the student, party dress (short skirt without the clip on top), or the princess (long skirt). The only drawback to the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll is that you cannot take off her clothes, meaning you can’t accessorize this doll with anything other than what she came with. For very young little girls this is perfect since it means less small pieces that can be lost. My daughter hasn’t seemed to care that she can’t accessorize Blair, sine she is having a great fun just recreating the different scenes from the movie.
Ease of Use With the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll
If there is one thing that the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll was designed to be, it is easy to use for little girls. While other dolls may be more complex, the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll was designed to be easy to use for little girls and durable. The lever on the back of the doll is well made, something that is not very easy for kids to break. I thought at first that it may be when I saw my daughter playing with it, but after some heavy use and going to preschool with her, it is still holding up. Even though it is holding up well, I am still teaching her to be gentle with the doll, preparing her for any other future Barbie’s she may have that have some cute novelty factor, such as the Video Girl Barbie her sister was given by Grandma and Grandpa.
As a parent that is used to picking up small Barbie accessories all over the house, I am glad that the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll came with very few accessories. We keep her shoes and a necklace in a bag, since my son is under a year old. Everything else on this Barbie is attached or painted to this doll’s body, something I find as a major plus. The only piece we have to worry about is the clip on shirt, which is actually quite cute and easy to keep up with in our household.
Novelty Factor of the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll
Since the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll did come from a movie, I expect that it will likely lose a lot of its coolness once my daughter gets tired of watching the The Barbie Princess Charm School DVD. Since I expect this to take another three or four months, this makes the Princess Blair Barbie a great deal in my book. My daughter is so far carrying this doll everywhere with her, and seems to be a great starter Barbie for her.
What is unique about this doll is the fact that she does have articulated legs, allowing her to sit or do just about anything you want with a doll. Compared to some of the older dolls, I found this to be quite unique. Right now, she is having fun having tea parties and classes in her Barbie Glam Vacation Home with this cute doll.

What Others Thinks of the Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll
At my daughter’s preschool, every parent is trying to get a hold of Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Dolll and all of her friends. Many of the local toy stores have bumped up the price of this starter Barbie doll since they know they will spend most of the Christmas season with this doll out of stock. At At Amazon.com, Barbie Princess Charm Princess Blair Transforming Doll has a four out of five star rating. Here is what other parents of this cute Princess Blair doll…
“I have two little girls, one is seven months and one is three. My three year old loves this Barbie doll. Her baby sister does too. Okay maybe my youngest is too young to play with Barbies, technically, but she loves this doll. Once in her hand, she doesn’t want to let it go. As for my three year old, this is her third Barbie and technically she might be a little too young as well, but she loves her Barbies. And me, Mom. I love them too. I loved them when I was a child and I love them still. After all who wouldn’t love a Charm School Princess?”
“My granddaughter really enjoyed this Barbie Princess. Excellent quality and she really enjoyed playing with Barbie. I love sitting and listening the the stories she makes up while playing with Barbie on the porch.”
“The Barbie Princess Charm doll was a great hit for my 5 1/2 year old grand daughter. The plastic shirt goes on easily and stays on and then removes well also. The skirt goes up and down very well. The shoes come off and on well without difficulty. She loves to comb the hair and it does not pull out, I like the way the knees bend, she sits in a chair well. She looks beautiful. This doll was easy to remove from her container, plastic ties cut easily, there are just a lot of them, the hard plastic ties in the back of her head are not easy to remove, you have to grasp the dolls head and pull, if you cut them they leave sharp plastic points in the dolls head. Would like to see the dolls under wear painted like the upper body was. We left the crown attached to her head so it wouldn’t get lost for now. It takes 10-15 minutes to remove from the box. A great toy doll and she loves it.”
“My 4 year old granddaughter loves the new Barbie movie Princess Charm School, and she loves this new Charm School Barbie too. I overheard her playing with it and she was creating dialogue for Barbie that pretty much followed the plot line of the movie that she has viewed so many times now. The only drawback as far as Catherine is concerned is that Barbie cannot be undressed. Her outfits can be altered by adding the “school girl top” or by twisting her so that her full length gown becomes street length, but there is no completing undressing her and changing clothes like the 4 year old wants to do. In spite of that, my granddaughter is in love with this new Barbie.”
“My grand daughter’s eye’s lit up when she saw the Barbie. She has tried all the combinations and is absolutely fascinated.”
