Like many girls before and after me, I just loved Barbie as a child. I loved collecting new Barbie fashions, dressing her up, having her date one of my transformers since I didn’t have a Ken doll, and much to the chagrin of my own mother, cutting their hair!
When I found out I was going to have a daughter I got kind of excited at the idea of getting to play with Barbie again. Keira might be small still but she already has a nice collection of Barbie dolls and accessories for us to play with.
If you are like Keira and I, you will be excited to find out about Barbie my Dreams, a new way for mom and daughter to play together online in a safe environment and collect all the things Barbie.
Barbie my Dreams is a new online interactive site for contests, games and of course dreams! Canadian Barbie fans of all ages will love collecting their favourite fashions and more plus the chance to enter the latest contests! I love the familiar concept, it is much like Pinterest except users “re-post” dreams uploaded by Barbie and her pals. It is safe because your child will not interact with other users and everything is private. When you sign up for a Barbie my Dreams account you will also be the first to be notified of new promotions!
Keira and I had a really fun time looking through the main board and re-posting her favourites to our boards. Of course I couldn’t help but re-post some of my own favourites too! The best part is that while we were having so much fun we got to enter the Express your Style Contest!
With the Express your Style contest, you and your daughter(s) can show off your style for a chance to win a trip for four to Toronto for an unforgettable shopping experience. The Express your Style contest is a way to show off your personal style and since all the images are private and cannot be viewed by others it really is a great spot to curate your style.
To enter just post a fashion item that catches your eyes to your Express Your Style DreamBoard. Next upload a photo of yourself, your friends and Barbie® showing your favourite Barbie style. The Grand Prize includes airfare for four, hotel accommodations, welcome dinner, airport transfers, personal shopper including a special meet and greet and style assessment, spending money for the winner and her BFF and personalized fashion drawings. Check out the contest page for more details about runner up prizes and other current promotions!
