Probably a good idea on paper... In real life, not so much 7 Feb 2013
By Brian Baker - Published on
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Fun:   
My 3-year-old graddaughter loves her Barbies. If this toy were a basic Barbie with a couple of fashion accessories at a reasonable price, I'd have rated it much higher.

Unfortunately, it's touted as a "Fashion Design" doll, meaning that you also have the opportunity to "create" your own fashions, in this case a couple of dresses.

Even THAT would have been great, as my munchkin loves to "design" those kinds of things for her dolls. Disney has a very fun line of this kind of thing for the Princess dolls and figurines.

But that's where this toy doesn't meet the mark. First, it only includes two dress "blanks". That's a VERY limited repertoire. The included pens for drawing designs on the blanks work, but the cloth of the dresses is pretty thin and flimsy, so it moves around a lot when she tries to color the dress.

The pattern-maker element is also poorly designed. You're supposed to be able to transfer a "chalk" design onto the dress material by, essentially, doing a rubbing with an enclosed tool that looks like an ice scraper. It doesn't work worth a hill of beans. Even with me, at 6'2" and 200 pounds, putting my full force behind the scraper, the design was only dimly and vaguely -- and certainly unevenly -- transferred onto the dress. When my munchkin tried it, the results were almost completely undiscernable.

Then, once she was done "creating" her dress, it was time to put it on the doll. I gotta tell you, I have absolutely no idea how any kid is going to be able to do that. The dresses are EXTREMELY tight, and took a LOT of manipulation of the doll on my part to get them on or off. You have to put Barbie's arms upright (like she's diving into a pool) and angle her arms toward each other, all while maneuvering her head to try to get everything through the dress, the arms in the arm holes, wriggling everything the whole time while trying to work the dress over the figurine. I thought I'd need an extra hand or two to make it happen. Getting it off was just as hard.

Not ready for prime time.

3 Dresses to Design Do Not Merit the Price... 10 Feb 2013
By VeraP - Published on
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
The Barbie itself is fine, however, this toy is marked for children ages 3 and up and I think even an adult would have a hard time making a decent design out of the things that are provided.

First of, I never understood why most Barbie dresses have to be so skimpy - they are so tight it's almost impossible to get them on. The doll comes with 3 design-able dresses, markers, stickers, fashion plates, charcoal paper, etc. There's NO WAY a 3 year old will be able to do much more than put on the stickers. Older kids - maybe once artistically inclined - may be able to make something out of this, but even then, the fun is over after the 3 dresses are all designed. After that, this becomes nothing more than an overpriced Barbie doll...

Waste of money! 7 Jan 2014

The doll is cute but only has two dresses to decorate so now we are done designing after playing for a half hour? I thought this was like the "old fashioned" 1970s fashion plates I had as a kid. It's not for use on paper just two dresses. Now they want to charge me another $18.00 to get two more barbie dresses in the refill pack. Why aren't they washable so u can redecorate the dress?? (Like Inkoos). The novelty is sadly over now since my daughter designed her two dresses front and back. Big let down. I can't see spending all that money for two "refill" dresses. I'd rather buy her a set of Barbie dresses for less money. Shame. 😞
