Best Barbie Toys

Sadly I was a little too old to enjoy Barbie when she first came out. At 11 it wasn’t very cool to be still playing with toy dolls!  However, a couple of generations of children have enjoyed Barbie toys, so here’s some background and info on some of today’s best Barbie toys.

Barbie Holiday Doll 2014

The Barbie toy brand is part of the Mattel group. Barbie herself was created in 1959 by Ruth Handler and is named after her daughter Barbara. Barbie’s  boyfriend Ken was introduced to the world in 1961 and  named after Ruth’s son, Ken. 

When Barbie was first released, the doll’s eyes didn’t look straight to the front but had a sideways glance.  This changed in the early 1970s. Since her release Barbie has become well-known for her line of fashion accessories and the range of  related toys.

One of the most iconic toys in the Barbie range is the Barbie Dream House which continues to be a bestseller year after year. The three storey home has floors accessible by elevators and comes with an amazing assortment of accessories for Barbie and her friends.


There is a working front doorbell, the appliances have sounds and the oven has a light that will come on. The bedroom has a bathroom located off of it and features a toilet with flushing sounds. There’s even a doggy bed beside Barbie’s large canopy bed. The Barbie Dream House is suitable for kids ages three and over.

To go with the Dream House, there is the Barbie Sisters Life in the Dreamhouse Camper. Together these are a great buy. The Camper has the amazing ability to turn into a pool. There’s a grill for outdoor cooking and plenty of accessories for enjoying life on the road. barbie sisters dreamhouse camper

The Camper has masses of sleeping room with bunk beds and a double bed. There’s a TV of course, and a blanket and much more for relaxing when the travelling day is over.

Barbie Pet BoutiqueThe Barbie Life in The Dreamhouse Pet Boutique and Doll Playset can also be purchased to go along with the Dream House. The Doll Playset features a fashionable Barbie doll and playset accessories.

The Pet Boutique set has a grooming area for pets, which are included. These pets are a kitten, a terrier and a poodle. A pet bathtub and grooming tools come with the set. There are pet fashions and accessories included as well.

Every year the company releases a new Holiday Barbie that delights children and collectors. The popularity of these dolls continues to grow. The Barbie 2014 Holiday Doll came dressed in a stunning red gown with gold lace accents. You can see the 2015 doll here.

Barbie cuddle feed tawny horseThe Barbie Feed & Cuddle Tawny Horse and Doll Playset is a favorite among those who love Barbie items. This set includes the Barbie doll, her horse and all the necessary riding and horse care kit. There’s a saddle, a riding helmet, a pail for feeding or watering the horse, hay, a horse brush and a stand. By pressing the saddle, the horse’s neck will lower.

I hope you enjoyed this brief look at Barbie Toys and that it helps you find something wonderful in the Barbie toys range that your kids will love.
