Barbie Fashionista Ultimate Closet Review
The Ultimate Closet has a fashionable pink and black outer design with the iconic Barbie logo. You can use it as a traveling Barbie wardrobe or play with it at home. It’s around 1 foot by 1 foot and weighs under 2 pounds. There’s a convenient handle and locking clasp so Barbie and her clothes are tucked away safely inside, compartmentalized so things shouldn’t mix or move when it’s carried around.
When it’s closed there is enough room inside for a Barbie doll along with clothes, accessories, shoes and more. When open, this plastic Barbie accessory acts as a wardrobe holding multiple dresses, shoes and other accessories. There’s even a working drawer.
The unit stands upright and opens out toward the user. The Barbie logo latch on the outside is used to close it securely. It has multiple shelves and drawers, and also an extending dress rack to hold extra outfits and fashions on hangers.
Accessories, dresses, shoes and even purses store conveniently inside, and more than 20 separate pieces are included altogether. Also, the Endless Closet Fashionistas app unlocks even more content for your little Barbie fan on an iPhone or iPad.
You should note that this doesn’t include a Barbie doll so it’s not really a starter kit. However, this is probably going to be an absolute must for any little Barbie admirer who already has at least one doll. For parents, it has the advantage of providing storage for at least some of those Barbie accessories that seem to get all around the house.
The Barbie Ultimate Closet from the Fashionista range can be used as a carryall, a clothing closet or played with as a standalone accessory.
On the downside, it’s not the strongest of items and a younger child or rough play could easily break pieces off. You should also be aware that there are no real clothes on the back of the doors, those are just pictures. You do get the three dresses that are hanging inside. This is clearer in the video than in the photo.
A fashion-minded little girl’s next birthday or Christmas will be memorable with this practical and functional Barbie closet. It’s great for taking to play dates and sleepovers too. Simply add one or more Barbie dolls and a few more clothes, and the wardrobe will provide hours of entertainment plus valuable storage space.
