Review of Barbie® Totally Hair™ Braid It!™ Dolls

3:07 PM



How could we possibly celebrate Girl's Week without a dedicated review to Barbie's latest products? The classic doll has stunned us once again with a new model that my 9-year-old daughter just calls, "Cool, Mom.."

Barbie® Totally Hair™ Braid It!™ Doll is cute, classy and comes with her own braiding tool (and yes, it really does work.) Not only can you twist Barbie's locks into crazy and coiffed combinations, but the styling tool works on your own hair! For the purposes of my own peace of mind, I tried out the nifty little styler when no one was looking... easy to use, and admittedly a very neat look (too bad I'm too old to pull it off for real!)
Barbie maker Mattel has also thoughtfully included an extra outfit, cool hair accessories, and a styling brush to complete Barbie's look. Hours of fun for Barbie fans, the Braid It! Doll was a hit at our house! (Barbie's friends Teresa and Nikki are also available in this line.)
Want to know more about Barbie's newest products? Check out the new Bike With Me Barbie accessories that fit directly on the handles of new Barbie bikes!

Would you like to win a new Barbie® Totally Hair™ Braid It!™ Doll or Barbie® Totally Hair™ Color It!™ Doll? 5 lucky winners will get a special doll, perfect for aspiring stylists or fashion fans! Just leave a comment on this post anytime before Sunday, June 8th at 11 pm CST. We'll randomly pick the winners and notify them by email! (Be sure to leave an email or a way to reach you on the post. See our full site rules for privacy details.)
Good luck!

  164. I brushed and brushed,
    and made her hair shine...
    She was my beloved Barbie,
    and she was mine all mine.

    The only thing
    that made me mad as heck...
    Was when I brushed so long
    that I'd break off her neck.

    So, give me a chance,
    to learn from the past...
    and I won't break her neck
    so my Barbie will last!
