LeapFrog Learning Game: Barbie Malibu Mysteries
(for LeapPad Tablets and LeapsterGS)

Sparkle, sleuth and help reading skills shine
Help Barbie catch the culprits responsible for missing shoes, shiny sparkly items and cupcakes in this reading-fueled, dazzling detective story. Designed for children ages 4 to 7, Barbie Malibu Mysteries inspires players to use reading, spelling and problem-solving skills to collect all the clues and solve three mysteries. Barbie Malibu Mysteries can be customized to offer practice with school spelling lists and works with all LeapPad tablets, as well as LeapsterGS Leapster Explorer* (systems sold separately).

Teaches:

  • Reading & Listening
  • Letter and Sight Word Identification
  • Spelling
  • Phonics
  • Vocabulary
  • Word Sounds and Rhymes
Curriculum that goes beyond core skills
Learning is always in fashion with Barbie Malibu Mysteries—and essential to solving crimes! After helping Barbie find hidden letters and objects throughout Malibu, players are asked to sort letters and words into word families that share common spelling patterns. This helps children read and spell new words they encounter. (For example, if children can read or spell “wig,” they can use analogy to read or spell “big” and “fig.”) Players build phonological awareness by identifying items that share the same beginning, middle or ending sounds. They also use word recognition and listening skills to choose fabulous accessories for Barbie, and get practice with spelling as they silkscreen adorable t-shirts in the Pet Paws Boutique. To successfully find the culprits, children must assimilate all the clues they’ve discovered using free association.
Personalized for every child
In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, children can practice their own spelling lists for school while having fun with Barbie. Parents can choose from a list of thousands of words to create a unique list for their child to practice, and update the words as often as they like. If parents opt to let the game select the words, Barbie Malibu Mysteries will adjust the level automatically based the child’s age and performance, keeping kids challenged at just the right level. Players are asked to spell one word to fill the machine with ink, and then spell another word to fill it with glitter. The machine will screen more words onto pet t-shirts for players to spell, too, offering them practice with the words they need to learn. Barbie Malibu Mysteries is also packed with ways for children to express their personal style. Players get to dress Barbie in clothes, shoes and accessories they find, and they can decorate photos they take on their LeapPad or LeapsterGS systems with Barbie masks and stickers, then save and share them!*
Fun with their favorite characters
In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, building reading skills is part of the excitement as children help Barbie crack three cases and find missing shoes, shiny sparkly items and cupcakes. Players get to join Barbie and her friends in Malibu to silk-screen glitter-rific t-shirts for pets, decorate photos and search for fabulous accessories for Barbie—so she can sparkle, shine and sleuth.
Learning experts create or approve every experience
Barbie Malibu Mysteries is created by educational experts and designed using innovative gameplay to help children build foundational literacy skills linked to future reading success. In one game, players are asked to identify items that rhyme or share the same beginning, middle, or ending sounds. These key phonological awareness skills help children understand that words are made of sounds and boost their ability to predict how to read and spell new words they encounter. Players are also prompted to find hidden letters and objects, and then sort letters and words into word families based on shared word endings.
Learning meets fun
When children recognize how some words share common spelling patterns, they can use words with similar spellings to help them figure out new words they come across. The dress up game helps build listening and reading vocabulary and word recognition skills as players identify words to dress Barbie in a full range of mix-and-match outfits. In the Pet Paws Boutique, players get to silkscreen t-shirts as they practice spelling words from customized lists that can match the words they are learning in school. Alternatively, players can practice words with spelling patterns that get increasingly more sophisticated as they successfully move through the levels.
Key features
In Barbie Malibu Mysteries, children ages 4 to 7 can use their reading and problem-solving skills to help Barbie and friends solve three mysteries. Players search Malibu for the missing goods and other stylish accessories, collect clues and sort out the evidence to catch the culprits! Using the glitter-rific silk-screen machine, players can get practice spelling words from inside the game or from unique custom spelling lists their parents create. Learning fun and mystery abound! Barbie Malibu Mysteries Learning Game is compatible with all LeapPad Kids’ Learning Tablets and LeapsterGS.*In-game photo feature is not compatible with Leapster Explorer.

This game doesn't compare well to other leap pad games offered at the same price. There isn't a lot of variety during gameplay. Just the same handful of simple word games. It would have been nice for the gameplay to be more interactive for my daughter. Most Leap Frog games of this price value offer better gaming features on top of the educational features we've come to expect from Leap Frog games.

                Hi I was very excited to buy this game but I am very dissapointed. To complicated for my 4 year old. I have to play with when she wanted to play.
                For a Barbie game I feel it is not up to standerd with other barbie products.
                You could have rather make her shop with friends and let her do make overs for her friends by buying the clothes. As you reach goals more shops and shop items will be available. Plus a hair saloon and makeup shop qould be nice.
                I wich I did not but this game. My girl only played 2 times with it.
