What is it
The Barbie DreamHorse reacts to touch and sounds – it features more than 30 realistic reactions!
- DreamHorse can walk forward, turn 360 degrees and neigh when you play!
- DreamHorse can also feed (a bunch of carrots are included) and nuzzle in response to your touch.
- For even more fun, DreamHorse nods yes or no when you ask a question!
- It can also play three songs and show off with three different dances.
You and Barbie can groom the horse’s super-long, curly mane and tail with the included brush. And, of course, Barbie doll can sit on the saddle – just use the included waist clip – to ride along wherever DreamHorse goes.

What our experts think
Our testers loved the way in which the horse walked and chewed its carrots – there were lots of smiles and giggles while playing. There were so many interactive elements that the horse was played with over long periods of time and the children were reluctant to stop.
Many children incorporated the horse into their imaginative play with others so it was a good toy for promoting collaborative play – helping children learn social skills, such as sharing – as well as promoting creativity. We really liked the way in which the children were encouraged to take care of the horse, fostering nurturing behaviour and a sense of responsibility. The children found that the horse is better played on a hard surface.
