I was really excited for Ellie to receive this as she loves drawing and designing clothes. She wants to be a fashion designer when she is older so I thought it would be the prefect kind of toy for her!
When our parcel arrived Ellie was dead excited to get the box open, (which let me tell you...was a pain, god I hate packaging!) and give it a try!
You get lots in the box, heres a quick run through....
1. Barbie herself, wearing black removable heeled shoes, a removable pink necklace and her body is made up of this white slip dress
2. Stickers and fabric ruffles to further customise your designs.
3. Pink Barbie Portfolio.
4. Inside the portfolio you get 8 printable fabric sheets. (I was pleasantly suprised by this, I was maybe expecting 2 or 3 sheets)
Each sheet has well written, easy to read instructions.
Pre-cut easy peel stickers.
5. Instructions, and information about downloading the app to your IOS or Android device. (Or alternativly you can use the Fashion Design Maker at barbie.com on your PC or mac)
Ellies first thoughts.Ellie thought this was an awesome toy, she loves designing things and couldnt wait to start designing. Therefore she made a mad dash to my IPad to download the app and start designing...
She was gutted though, that she had to wait for me to get new ink (ooppssie, bad Mummy)
Though it would seem this makes no difference for some un-known reason we can not get this to work with our printer and laptop. It would see there is some error between the PDF reader on the laptop and the printer...whatever it is it stops the laptop from working and sends it into some melt down, that then takes hours to fix again! After the 3rd time of this happening I have decided to give up, unfortunatly I cant keep trying for my laptop to break down!
She is so upset that she cant play with this yet.
Instead she is taking it to her Dads over Christmas and she will have a play with it there instead!
So keep a look out for an update in the New Year.
In all I would say this is a great toy for any Barbie lover, I truely believe the problem is with my laptop and printer.
