Product Description

Mattel - Barbie - Fashion Design plates & Doll

Girls can become the designer in just a few easy steps with the Fashion Design Plates Barbie® Doll-just swipe, colour and design! Girls select from the fashion plates to create an outfit, choosing a bodice, torso and skirt piece; all fashion plates are designed to align. They then snap the selections into the base unit along with a real dress to design and a piece of charcoal paper and swipe, using the provided tool. As it's rubbed, the design is transferred to the dress and ready to be finessed.

colour the fashion with the included markers (purple, blue and pink-of course!) and add design elements with the stickers. Aspiring fashion designers can mix and match the plates to create closetfuls of looks for Barbie doll! Includes 1 doll, 6 double-sided fashion plates, 3 real dresses to design, 4 markers, 1 sticker sheet, 3 sheets of charcoal paper, 1 tool and 1 base. Doll cannot stand alone.

My grandchildren found it complicated and didn't bother with it which was very disappointing.

Probably a good idea on paper... In real life, not so much 7 Feb. 2013
By Brian Baker - Published on Amazon.com
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.

The Barbie itself is Nice 3 Feb. 2013
By S. Al-Amri - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
What were the designers of this toy thinking? This is supposed to be for children. I would say to get a result anywhere near what is on the box the parent must be a professional artist.

Even then I would use other materials. The coloring pens included are not that good. No way a child can make it look like anything at all except a mess.

This design needs to return to the research division to be redone. The stars that I gave it were for the doll itself which is a very nice basic Barbie. The Design plates are just not what they should be.

Many parents rate gifts for their kids - and that's great. But we are grandparents, long-distance at that, so we're reviewing this for other grandparents who are looking for gifts for their smaller relatives, that will be loved and appreciated over the miles.

First, our five-year-old granddaughter already loves her dolls, and spends a lot of time playing dress-up. Barbies are always big hits with her, so that's a plus right out of the gate. Our gd likes to change dresses from one doll to the other, and already makes her own clothes out of brightly colored paper and fabrics - again, we felt we couldn't go wrong with this gift.

The kit comes with dresses she can decorate herself, with design elements provided.

We're told by the parents that this fashion Barbie gave our little loved one many hours of enjoyment, and although she used up the few dresses provide with the package, Mom is helping by making up more, so it's a gift that continues to please.

Not Worth It 21 Mar. 2013
By Mayfayre - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My test kidlet is 7 and this was her report:

"The clothes didn't sit tight in the frame and kept moving around so my lines were always crooked when I was drawing them"

"There wasn't much to do after I finished the three dresses."

"I couldn't make my dresses look like the ones on the package."

"I liked getting another Barbie doll."

And that was basically the high point of the product - there's a Barbie doll included. This might have been a nice idea at the Barbie Think Tank, but the actual product does not live up to its hype. I know that if she had problems with it at age 7, there is no way a 36-month old child is going to know what to do with it. Luckily, I got this product free to test; if I had purchased it I would have been even more disappointed.

Waste of money! 7 Jan. 2014
By C. Miranda - Published on Amazon.com

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. 😞
