I don’t know why I get so excited, but I thought it was pretty cool when I heard that they were coming out with some Dancing with the Stars inspired Barbies. I was lucky enough to have the 3 DWTS barbies they created sent to me and as you can see from the above picture, my daughter and nieces loved them (aren’t they cute?).
The 3 DWTS inspired barbies are the Paso Doble Barbie, Samba Barbie and Waltz Barbie. The looks of the Dancing with the Stars Barbie were inspired by Brooke Burke, Kym Johnson, and Kathy Ireland. In our house, the Samba Barbie didn’t have enough clothes on and so it’s now a Snow White dress with the Samba Barbie. They are really well done and could be interesting collectors items in the future. Although, I couldn’t help letting my daughter not open them and enjoy them the way a Barbie should be enjoyed (we’ll see if my son enjoys them a way a son enjoys Barbies).
Here are the 3 DWTS inspired Barbies on Amazon for those interested:
Paso Doble Barbie
My favorite is the Paso Doble Barbie. The rich red dress is a nice contrast to the dark hair. I’m not sure if having Dancing with the Stars Barbies means that DWTS has gone mainstream or if it means it’s jumped the shark. Either way, I think it’s pretty cool. I wonder if they’ll come out with DWTS Ken dolls next.
Here are some other pictures of my daughter and nieces holding the DWTS Barbies. They had fun with this:
