Just recently I was the proud hostess to a Barbie party! It was actually more of an excuse for Lizzie to have her friends over to play with Barbies and eat cute sandwiches than anything else. But it was also to celebrate the release of the new movie: Barbie™ The Princess and The Popstar.

I had a lot of fun with the food. For me? This was creative. And healthy too! As you can tell from the sandwiches, I wasn’t expecting very many kids (small class size + busy time of year = low RSVPs) but that also meant more fun playing with the Barbie playhouse!

The mothers that attended requested I refrain from publishing photos of their children. So I will be showing you pics of Lizzie, David, and their cousin Mycah. But you can ask Lizzie – there were other kids there :)

And to maintain the princess theme, I allowed Lizzie to have a tea party with her real tea cups! Mycah showed me how to drink it “fancy.”

Next, everyone donned their tiaras and played with the lovely little castle dollhouse.  There were enough fairy dolls to send every girl home with 2 – and they loved it!

The only thing we did not do was watch the movie The Princess and the Popstar.  One of the mothers has a rule to always pre-screen all movies before her daughter watches them.

But after everyone left, I watched it with Lizzie. While I understand why not everyone loves Barbie movies, I found this one to be acceptable. In moderation, and with discussion, we enjoyed the movie as a fun distraction with upbeat songs.  I’m looking forward to the day when Barbie isn’t made to look like an unrealistic supermodel, but Lizzie is learning the difference between cartoons and real life.

The movie actually had a decent lesson mixed in! It tried to teach girls that you should love your own life and you never know how hard someone’s life is, so don’t be jealous of it. That being said, I wasn’t a fan of the scene where they sang about their lives. I want to teach Lizzie to sing about and love giving to others, not shoes and clothes and mani/pedis.  It was a wonderful conversation-starter, so that was excellent!

I will leave you with a video of Lizzie and Mycah demoing their new Barbie dolls.  The blonde/pink haired one is Princess Tori and the brunette/purple hair girl is the pop star Keira.  When you push their necklace, they sing! (Which I heard tonight at bed time.) Their hair is changable, just rotate their scalp. And you can change their dresses too!

(The hair changes because in the movie the Princess has a magic hairbrush that can change their hair. The dresses change because the Pop Star has a magic mic that can change her clothes!)

    I LOVED Barbies as a kid. Made houses out of books, my mom couldn’t afford the townhouse, I so wanted…I even had Donny and Marie, Charlie’s Angels and Cher dolls! Both my girls adore Barbies too.

    Funny, but I never played with Barbies and neither did my girls. But my granddaughters adore Barbies.

    I really enjoyed playing with Barbies as a little girl. It is one toy that truly lasts and sparks my daughters imaginations.
    Thanks for the chance!

  9. Bethany Fields says

    Yes I played with Barbies when I was a little girl, along with She-Ra and He-Man dolls. I had my Barbies, She-Ra, He-Man and Skeletor all living it up in my She-Ra castle. I look forward to playing barbies with my 2 year old daughter, it brings back so many memories! These Barbies remind me of my Jem doll, who remembers Jem? She was awesome with her Pink hair!! Yeah, yeah, I’m definitely a child of the 80′s!

  12. Jessica H. says

    I loved playing barbies as a child! I could play them for hours. My girls love Barbie as well, so I try and get them all the things I didn’t have when I was a child.
