Product Description

Create your own designs and let the fashion designer in you shine with the Barbie Spin Art Designer. Select your fashion, pick your paint colors and spin a new and unique design for Barbie doll! Young designers will love the fun of expressing their creative side and watching their ideas come to life. Every outcome will be different, and, with washable fashions, you can wash out a design and start all over for endless creative expression. Designing is easy. Choose one of three included washable dresses, and place it on the dress form. Different colors and trendy silhouettes provide options for numerous looks and styles. Attach the dress form to the spin art unit and close the pink lid. Select one of the three paint colors (pink, yellow and blue paints are included) and shake the bottle up. Pump the lever on the spin art unit to make it spin, and add paint drops through the holes on the unit's lid as it spins. Continue to pump the lever to allow the paint color to spread in cool and fun ways. Once you're happy with the amount of paint you've added, open the lid to reveal your custom-designed dress. Spin a little or a lot. Choose one paint color or all three. You decide because you're the designer! Dress the included Barbie doll in your fabulous spin art fashion and black booties that complement any style. Create fabulous looks to play out your own stories or display your designs.

First and foremost, I would like to state that I am writing a review for the Barbie Spin Art Designer & Doll which I received for free in exchange for my review. The item was packaged in an eye-catching, curiosity intriguing manner, which my recently turned 6 year old oohed and squealed over. We opened the spinner portion which is sized so a young child can handle it with ease. The ink bottles are of a size that will last for awhile. Moreover, the bottles are not too difficult for a child to squeeze, but it's also not to soft that the ink shoots out causing a mess. The kit comes with 3 different colored dresses (white, lavender, and pink) of different styles, 1 one shouldered and 2 two shoulder dresses. As for actually designing the dresses, there are two suggested methods. The first method is to add the ink through slots in the spinner aso it spins. The second method requires the child to place drops on the dress and then spin. As we designed the first dress, I guided my daughter through the instructions using the first method, which she initially experienced a little bit of difficulty. She had a bit of difficulty squeezing the ink through the slots; the end result of the front side of the dress was a brightly, tie-dyeish design. We then attempted the second method to design the back side of the dress, which created less wide ink waves. Once completed the dress was bright and pretty, but wet, so you must hang it overnight to dry; my daughter hung it on one of her Barbie hangers in her Barbie wardrobe. The spinner was easy to clean with a damp paper towel, but most importantly, it washed off of our hands quite easily. As we packed the spinner away, my daughter who loves designing and sketching stated, "This is my best present ever; I love you!" The next day, my daughter used both methods to design the final 2 dresses on her own. Overall the dresses, were cute and creative, similar to a dress that one could imagine being bought for a barbie. Therefore, if you have a budding designer, a creative child, or simply a Barbie fan, your child would love this gift!

I tried to give this a 4star but it keeps changing it to 3star :( My daughter is 7 & is sort of a fashionista so when we had the opportunity to get this we did. It was somewhat difficult to squeeze the bottles of color so I had to help her with that. I believe it is so not too much comes out at once, so it overall is a good thing that they were hard to squeeze. I'm concerned once the bottles of dye are gone she will be upset, so it would be nice if I could figure what to use when that happens. We were impatient & took the dress off of the black attachment for the spinner, because we wanted to do all 3 dresses at the same time., when I would recommend letting it dry on the black plate before removal (as the directions say to do!). They are taking forever to dry, it's been 2 hours now and they still aren't dry for Barbie to wear. It would have been nice to have 3 black plates instead of just the one. Overall it was a fun toy to play with & she is excited to dress Barbie in her new dresses she created. My 5 year old son even enjoyed the craft part of it, not necessarily making dresses for Barbie, but helping with the dye & the spinner. It is also nice that it doesn't take batteries & just has a pump to make it spin. This made cleaning it very easy. I haven't tried to wash the dresses yet so hopefully they come clean so we can create new styles. All 3 styles all ended up looking different too which was a plus.

    This is a great arts and crafts idea for my daughter. She loves barbies and dressing them up. It is a lot of fun for her to do and is great that I can wash the dresses for repeated use! Only down side is that it takes a long time for the paint to dry on the dresses.

    Fun Project to do with Barbie

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer With Doll:

      This was a neat project my 7yo enjoyed playing with. Once I explained to her how it worked she got it right away. What she liked the most was that she could wash it and could remake the design if she didn't like the one she produced. The only thing she didn't like was that she had to wait a little bit for the fabric to dry after washing off the original design because it did work way better when the fabric was dry. She also really liked the idea that she could play with the Barbie when she was done with the design part.

      Fun for the first 10 Mins

      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer With Doll:

      My daughter and I were very excited about this, at first. We pulled all the items out and I quickly realized this was going to be very messy. We laid down a protective barrier and began play. Its fun, however theres no way to make the pretty designs that the box indicates, not a big deal for a 6 yr old. The biggest issue was the wait time after designing the dresses, its wet for hours and I don't know about other parents, i personally don't want to have red, blue or yellow on my furniture. We haven't played with it since the first time.

              The first fifteen minutes out of the box were a little frustrating- paint was not squirting out properly, but after shaking it for quite a while, it seemed to work better. After some practice, we were able to get clear circles as detailed on the box. Not yet sure how it washes out of the dresses for re-use since my child won't let me wash her creations yet. My child appreciated being able to choose from a selection of dresses and colors so the variety was just write for the packaging. The Barbie doll that comes with it is of similar quality to other standard Barbie dolls. An especially nice starter set for someone who is looking to get into Barbie.

              Cons

              • paint gets stuck if not shaken vigorously enough

                Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer With Doll:

                My daughter had a lot of fun designing her dresses and went through the 3 outfits pretty quick. It took some patience for her to wait for them to dry and dress her Barbie. She asked for more clothes to design! I love how this is a tie-dye activity without the actual huge mess. There are suggested ways to design and spin which I thought was very helpful. I love the safety feature where you cannot open the lid until it completely stops spinning-definitely saves you some mess. I had wet wipes at hand and it was very easy to wipe the paint off your hands and/or floor in case there is a spill/mess. Also the dresses can be easily handwashed and ready to be designed again. The only issue I had was the paint itself. You really had to shake it vigorously and occasionally it would get stuck and I had to get a needle to poke it.

                  During the first fifteen minutes dealing with this toy, I thought I would give it one star. After some trial and error, it does work as expected, but the start-up frustration level dampened my daughter's initial enthusiasm. The paint was extremely difficult to get out and it had to be continually shaken to get the best results. At first we ended up with blobs, but with the second dress, we were able to get the perfect circles as shown on the box. We haven't washed a dress yet since she doesn't want to give up her creation, so I cannot attest to how it washes out. However, I will say that the paint on my hands did linger for a day and did not come out with an initial washing with soap and water. My daughter did like that she could customize her own dress with specific colors but complained about how hard it was to use the paint. One suggestion, I am right-handed and I would have preferred the lever to spin the disc be on the left, so I could use it with my left hand and have better control with the paint with my right hand. As it was, I was crossing my hands over each other to get the most control and it was a bit awkward. Also, I don't know where we would get replacement paint once we run out.

                      Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer With Doll:

                      So I allowed my 7 year old daughter and her friend to play with the Barbie Spin Art Designer. They were very excited to begin playing, but first we had to open it up. The package was bright and detailed and the pieces were fairly easy to get to with a pair of scissors and Mommy's assistance. The only flaw in the packaging is that barbie was attached by the back of the head, and when I cut the 2 pieces off the back of her head you could feel them still back there, and they were pokey. Anyways, setting everything up did require a little adult assistance but soon they were off to dress painting. One pushed the lever while the other one dripped paint and it seemed to be going smooth. However, when they stopped spinning and looked at the dress, they were both disappointed that it didn't look anything like the picture. It looked like a hot mess! I thought, well maybe they were squeezing the paint to hard and decided to give it a try myself, while my daughter attempted to dry the other dress and put it on barbie. I spun the wheel as fast as I could and delicately dripped paint, but because the slots are so wide and not in a tight spiral pattern I ended up with similar results. Now it was time to help my daughter and her friend that were both struggling to dress barbie. I could not believe how hard it was to get the dress on (and I tried multiple different ways) but because her arms don't bend, good luck. So the girls quickly lost interest in barbie after using the paint to color her hair, then switching to voloring the paper I laid down. All 3 bottles became clogged and difficult for them to squeeze and they were ready to go outside. My daughter has not once played with it since. Although it was a good concept and might draw a little attention on the shelf, I have to say this toy unfortunately missed the mark.
