Playing Dress Up
Usually, girls spend most of their time with Barbie dolls trying new clothes on them and accessorizing outfits. You can find Barbie clothes in all shapes, styles, colors and patterns so you can have an endless fashion show with your unique creations. Some children learn skills that help them dress themselves while playing Barbies. Most just enjoy the Barbie outfits and have fun putting them together.
If your daughter has a few Barbies already and you want to surprise her with a cool present, try a new outfit for her Barbie instead of a new Barbie which will be more expensive. For the price of a Barbie you can get several different fun outfits. She'll love trying new outfits on Barbie and mixing and matching with her older Barbie clothes.
Barbie Character Play
As children grow and their imaginations develop they start acting out stories with their Barbies. They talk for the Barbies and have each Barbie act as a certain person in their creative story. They can often do this for hours at a time without running out of ideas. You may see them having Nurse Barbie save Good Barbie after she tried to stop Bad Barbie from stealing her baby or something similar.
If you are going to participate in this kind of character play with Barbies it is good to listen to your child and get a feeling for what is going on with their story so you can fit in with their game. Your child might get irritated if you try and play but get the story wrong or are not paying attention to the details of the story. Instead of taking a doll and deciding what its roll will be yourself, try asking your child how they want to incorporate you into their play.
Barbie Games Online
The newest addition to the many Barbie games played by children is online Barbie games. You can find lots of games online where your child can choose clothes and accessories for a Barbie doll. Online games usually have an endless supply of clothes and accessories and are always adding new items to their games to keep things interesting. With all the doll and clothes options available in online Barbie games it is no surprise that girls love to play the games!
Your daughter can probably play the Barbie games online without your help. If you want to get involved try talking to her about the clothes and accessories to see what the story is behind her choices. You can also print her final creations out and cut them out to make a paper doll she can use to act out a story with you. She'll love the puppets you create out of her online Barbie creations.
