Barbie Spin Art Fashion Designer and African-American Barbie Doll Set

Barbie has a lot to do, and her three plain dresses just aren't gonna cut it this time. With the Barbie Spin Art Fashion Designer and African-American Barbie Doll Set, you can create brand-new dresses for Barbie to wear. She's a busy doll and needs a new outfit to wear for each occasion. Between photoshoots, parties and dates, she just can't wear the same dress twice. As her fashion stylist, take over her wardrobe by unleashing your creativity. Just place a dress inside the spin art machine, drop some paint through the holes and pump the lever to spin the paint into stunning patterns. Wash the dresses to start fresh for Barbie's next big event.

Product Highlights

  • Add drops of paint as the unit spins to decorate the dress
  • No two dresses are the same thanks to the different-colored paints, multiple holes to put the paint through and varying techniques to pump the spinner
  • All three dresses are washable for an endless creative outlet
  • Barbie's black boots go with every outfit
  • Safety lock prevents paint from splattering out of the unit
  • Recommended for ages 5 years and older

What's Included

  • African-American Barbie doll
  • Three dresses
  • Pink paint, blue paint, yellow paint
  • Black booties
  • Spin art unit
  • Dress form
Spin new designs
Since fashion design is a form of art, the first step is to place one of the three dresses inside the spin art unit. Pump the black handle to make it spin. Try different spinning techniques to see how it affects the final design.
Totally awesome
Plaint splatter chic is all the rage right now. As you spin the machine, add in paint drops via the holes on top. Take your time for a meticulous pattern, or go crazy to create true works of art. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, after all. When you're done, open the lid to show Barbie her new dress.
The fun never ends
Wash the dresses to start over and make better, bolder designs. Barbie wants one-of-a-kind style each and every time.

Product Description

Spin a new design for Barbie® doll, included, with this innovative design tool! Choose one of three washable dresses and place it on the dress form. Attach the dress form to the spin art unit, and close the lid. Select one of three paint colors (pink, yellow and blue), and shake it up. Pump the lever on the spin art unit to make it spin, and add paint drops into the unit as it spins. Continue to pump the lever to allow the paint color to spread in cool and unique ways. Then open the lid, remove the custom design and play or display with Barbie® doll. A trendy pair of black shoes will complement any look you design. Wash the fashions to start over and create new looks again and again.

Even my 6 year old daughter said "this was a lot more fun than I thought it would be!" I love that this toy does not need batteries! Thats always a plus! Another great feature is that it comes with 3 dresses that can be washed and re-designed when ever my daughter wants (although I have not tried washing them yet). This set comes with 3 dye bottles, pink, blue & yellow. These colors mix together nicely during spinning and create pretty purple and green colors as well. The dye bottles were too hard for my daughter to squeeze on her own until I widened the holes with a safety pin. After that she was able to do everything on her own. She got the hang of spinning right away. She thought it was cool to see how spinning fast and slow effected the design. She had no trouble putting the dresses on the plate and into the spinner. I was worried about the mess but there really wasn't one. We got dye on our hands a few times but it washed right off. Cons- You can't design a second dress until the first one has finished drying and can be removed from the spinner but the dresses take hours to dry. I wish there were 2 dress plates and a little drying area for the wet dress. In the end, this didn't bother my daughter too much but if she and a friend each wanted to design a dress, they couldn't.

My 5 year old daughter was super excited to receive this Spin Art set in the mail. She already has a spin art set that uses paper, so she's familiar with how they work. We opened it up the very night we received it and created our first dress. Some observations: 1) The paint bottles must be shaken vigorously; the paint was completely separated, and the blue, especially, required an inordinate amount of shaking to mix completely. There were visible solid pieces in the bottom of the bottle. 2) The bottles are very difficult to squeeze. My daughter was frustrated and unable to ever get any paint out the bottle. Instead, she spun the dress while I applied the paint. 3) It was difficult to lightly apply paint; a giant blob would squirt out the bottle at once, leaving areas of thick paint on the dress. These thicker areas took more than two days to dry completely, and they crack and fall off the dress as it is played with. 4) You can really only paint one dress per day. The set only comes with one plate (the flat black piece) which is required to hold the dress straight in the spinner. The dress cannot be removed from the plate until it is dry, meaning you cannot put this toy away when you are finished using it. 5) The finished dresses look cool. They don't look like the examples on the box (ours didn't anyway!), as the colors soak into the fabric and sort of meld together, but the look is cool nonetheless. 6) The spinner and paint bottles fit nicely in a one gallon zipper bag for storage. Ideally they would come in a box that could be kept and re-packaged for storage, but the bag will have to do. 7) Much to my pleasant surprise, the paint completely washes out the dresses. I didn't even need soap; I simply held it under running, warm water, and it all rinsed out. Total wash time was less than 30 seconds!! Instead of coming with a doll, I wish the set would have come with an equal number of dresses and plates and a little drying rack to hang the wet dresses. This way you would be able to paint more than one at a time. The doll is upstairs with all her other Barbies in my daughter's room and isn't integral to the use or function of the set.

Barbie Makes a Mess

Pros

  • Not durable

    Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer and Doll - African-American:

    The Barbie Spin Art is a great toy in concept. However, it is extremely messy and hard to clean. My daughter enjoyed using the spin art but it stained her outfit. It takes longer than expected to dry. Overall, it was a decent product but I don't think I would purchase.

        Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer and Doll - African-American:

        I asked my husband that very question, when I began to tinker with the spin art. I love the fact that you can design the dresses multiple times, it keeps my daughter coming back again and again! When we first got it going, we discovered it takes a certain knack to actually make a design verses making an inky mess! Once we got the hang of it down, I'd spin while my daughter dripped ink wherever she thought necessary! (I am really in love with the fact that it won't spin unless the lid is shut! It keeps little fingers safe! :3) It's added a new level to dressing up Barbie, which is currently the part my daughter loves the most about the dolls. As a parent, I also love the easy cleanup! We just hose it off in the sink and let it dry in the dish rack! The first time we used it, we were on the bed. (Not my brightest moment, but it's the go to comfy spot.) We managed to get a few splotches of dye on the bed sheet, it washed out like a charm!

            Comments about Mattel 1001134 Barbie Spin Art Designer and Doll - African-American:

            I loved the concept of this toy! The "paint" seemed like an odd texture which made it hard to squeeze out of the bottle and thus control the design that you were trying to achieve. The cover, while I appreciate that it kept the paint from going everywhere, was another thing that limited what type of pattern could be achieved. Despite all of this, my daughter loved it and she is the intended target group.

              My 5 yr old loved this toy, she really enjoyed making a mess! It's easy to use and easy to set up. I like that the spinner has a safety door, which minimizes the paint from getting everywhere. All though I would not let children play on their own because the paint stains, after several washes it does come off. The Nikki doll she received was good quality, but the arm is permanently bent, which makes it difficult to put on the dresses. Overall she loved making unique dresses!

                This is a very cute toy that your little one will probably enjoy. My 5 year old used it with the help of her older cousin because it can get messy. It was fun for one use however the girls painted the outfits in one play. This would be a bigger hit if it came with more outfits and paint colors, or if there were an option to purchase extras that are specific to this toy. Still a good purchase.

                      My daughter and I have had a ball with set. She really loves changing her dolls clothes. So to have a chance for her to make some of her own was a truly fun experience for her. I loved the fun colors that came in the kit. I think they were the best colors to use. I think the more color you add the more muddled it looks so this was a great choice. I also really enjoyed the fact that when she got upset over a design that I was able to explain to her that they were washable. To her that was so much more than she expected. She had more fun and did not let the fact the mistakes bother her. The only problem I had was keeping her from washing the clothes too much. Though I do no mind because they are so easy to clean. I am so happy with the product and would recommend it for anyone who want to buy a girl a present.

                              This Barbie set is so much fun! Although I originally was worried it could be very messy it wasn't! The spinner is made very well and the dye is contained within it. It's easy for kids as my 5 year old had no trouble at all with it (some help from me). One of the most important things to make sure you keep the dress on the black plate until it is completely dry. One downfall is that it does take a while, but not a huge deal! It's wonderful that the dresses are washable so you can get plenty of use out of the kit! Not only does my daughter have fun coming up with different creations but I truly enjoy doing it with her as well! A lot of fun and I would definitely recommend to others!
