We were sent the Barbie Sisters’ Cruise Ship to review with our second Toyologist box; I was really surprised when we got this as it is quite an expensive item and I really wasn’t expecting it! Maisie and Maxwell have been having an absolute ball playing with the cruise ship and are now nagging me to buy more Barbie dolls Maxwell loves to slide the dolls down the slide into the swimming pool (read: he loves making a mess with water lol) – Maisie loves sitting with her dolls at the dining table having lunch! This is a fab toy; something I would never have bought because Maisie hasn’t really showed much interest in Barbie’s but one that is going to get played with over and over again. See my little video below…[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0kx504h0fk&w=480&h=360]
The brightly coloured ship features a top deck with captain’s wheel and space for two lounge chairs. Pilot the ship into shore or thrown down pillows and relax. When the boat docks, fold down the side panel – an umbrella pops up, a grand buffet rotates around, and a swing flips out. The sisters can sit at the table for a shared meal or relax and watch television on the flat-screen “TV.” The top deck also opens to reveal a luxury ocean-view suite with two beds for slumbering soundly.
When it’s time to make a big splash, the large pool slides out from the base of the boat and features two thrilling slides. To activate the dolphin fountain between the slides, just fill the reservoir in front of the boat, and water shoots directly into the pool. The dolls (not included) can take turns going down the slides and then soak up some rays while lying poolside in the lounge chairs.
What’s included –
- Cruise ship
- 2 Water slides
- Swing (Hammock)
- Buffet accessories
- 2 Fold down beds
- 2 Lounge chairs
- Side table
- Pillows and blankets
Please note that rather disappointingly no dolls are included with this item; it would have been nice to include 1 or 2 dolls in their swimming costumes – I would be much more willing to spend £89.99 on this product if it had.
Barbie Sisters’ Cruise Ship is available from Toys R Us for £89.99
