Description

Andrea Werner, a pediatric occupational therapist in West Hartford, Connecticut, and mother of a preschooler and an infant, supports doll play as developmentally valuable. Mattel recognises that young children need toys that are easy to handle and safe for them. That’s why My First Barbie is made with non-toxic materials that have been tested and approved for children aged three years and above. This means that parents can rest assured that their child is safe while they play with My First Barbie. But My First Barbie is not only safe for children to play with, but it also offers many unique benefits. My First Barbie’s limbs are moveable, like some past versions of the doll, and her facial features remain recognizable. A huge milestone: Her fingers and thumbs are connected, eliminating a frequent complaint that Barbie’s hands get caught in her clothes when children try to put them on. The set also comes with an adorable plush flamingo! It features a wristlet to loop around the doll’s hand so she can carry her flamingo around, encouraging friendship stories. That’s why the brand’s newest doll, called My First Barbie, is made specifically for preschool-aged children ages 3 and up. The new line of dolls and accessories have the same look and feel of other Barbie dolls, but are updated with larger accessories, easy-to-dress Velcro fashions and a larger, softer doll body made for smaller hands. The dolls are available in four skin tones.

Mattel Announces The First-Ever Barbie Doll Specifically Designed for Preschool-Aged Children – Plus Giveaway

The launch of My First Barbie is accompanied by the first-ever Barbie content dedicated to preschool-aged children, titled “My First Barbie: Happy DreamDay,” which will debut Jan. 31 on the Barbie YouTube channel. I would love to win this Barbie doll for my disabled daughter she will be in the moon to received a Barbie doll gift. She is my Angel and my whole life.????‍????????‍???? The slightly softer-bodied Barbie follows on the high heels of tall, petite and curvy iterations that were released five years ago in a massive makeover. Parents also indicated that they are likely to choose a toy for their daughter based on a favorite character, and this ‘favorite’ status is often driven by content exposure. This finding led to the creation of My First Barbie YouTube content, the first Barbie animated special designed for preschoolers. Inviting younger kids to ‘meet’ Barbie and be introduced to her inspiring world. I don’t think there’s one specific doll that’s most appropriate. I think doll play allows children to really practice storytelling skills, perspective taking and social interactions,” LeVos said.

The Mattel Global Consumer Insights team conducted an exploration on what parents look for in a doll for their preschool-aged children. The research showed that while many parents want to buy Barbie dolls for their preschool-aged daughters, some feel like their daughters aren’t old enough to play with the standard sized Barbie doll given their currently dexterity. Also, if you think you’ve seen Barbies named My First Barbie before, you’re not wrong. There have been other versions over the decades, including the My First Barbie from 1980; she was the same size as regular Barbie, but her skin was made of harder, smoother plastic and her knees and elbows were not bendable. This made it easier for children to slip on and take off her simpler clothing, which did not have snaps that needed to be fastened.The Animation is Beautiful and Awe-Spiring (inspiring) and it does have sweet moments for the most part and very fun and Dreamy Musical Numbers. I can recommend watching this over and over anytime (When I don't have work) for contless hours. Gone is the contentious hourglass figure for My First Barbie, which launched Thursday ahead of July’s live-action film about the icon starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling. We talk to parents and kids almost 365 days a year,” she said. “We started hearing a theme around younger kids wanting to play with Barbie. Parents were concerned that their children at the preschool age didn’t have the fine motor skills to have a positive play experience with our traditional fashion doll.”

There are plenty of dolls on the market,” she said. “Companies will always be trying to sell consumers the next best thing.”My First Barbie is 13.5 inches tall, 2 inches taller than traditional Babs, with a larger waist that de-emphasizes the bust line (it remains in place, however), and flesh-tone modesty undergarments permanently attached. Her fashion is more kid-like, with playful heart, star and flower designs on jammies and flouncy preschool-friendly dresses and swim gear. Her accessories are larger for littler hands, and her hair is extra long for easier brushing.
