    Great looking car with some shortcomings in quality, March 4, 2012

    This is a fantastic-looking toy car. The pictures of the car itself shown here are very accurate. It really looks that good. The dolls seem bigger in these pictures than they are in real life, although I don’t own any Ken dolls, so I can’t comment the accuracy of his size.

    The product description above seems very hastily done. Typos aside, the side mirrors don’t really move. They detach (perhaps a bit too easily at that) but they are not adjustable in any way.

    The car is simply packaged in a cardboard window box. The design of the display is minimal with neon colors that detract from the stylish elegance of the car itself. The car is held in the box with three plastic anchors that are easily removed by lifting a tab and twisting 90 degrees. Car can be removed in under 10 seconds, which is excellent for keeping impatient young car enthusiasts happy.

    The car looks great. On the surface, it is a very accurate replica of the cool-looking Mini Cooper. The red color is very striking, especially with the contrasting white racing stripes and the black interior. From a distance, all of the details look great and are very realistic. The front of the car, in particular, has some excellent detail in the hood, grille and headlights. Both front doors open, which makes positioning dolls inside the car very easy. The Fashionista “Artsy” Barbie doll I own is well-proportioned to the car. The top of her head sits just above the top of the head rest on the seat. Smaller Barbie dolls like Chelsea can sit in the back seat, although they can’t quite sit flat against the bottom of the seat. A Barbie doll without articulated wrists would have trouble steering this car. The front seats have seat belts, which is accurate and educational.

    When you start to look at this car closely, a few flaws are apparent. The wheel mechanism is the biggest disappointment. The wheels do not have axels, but instead are attached individually to the sides of the car. There is no rotational movement in the wheels, so the car can’t turn. The car doesn’t even zoom across the floor very well because the front wheels are stiff and get stuck frequently. There is no communication between the steering wheel and the the wheels of the car, although the steering wheel does move back and forth loosely.

    The convertible top of the car does not close. It looks like it might close when you peer at the car through the box, but the only moving parts are the doors, the wheels and the steering wheel.

    Overall, the construction of the car is cheap. It is made entirely out of hollow lightweight molded plastic with a few sticker details. This is typical of Barbie cars, but seems more disappointing given the classy overall look of this particular car. The seat bottoms are molded out of the same piece of plastic as the bottom of the car. The backs of the seats are hollow. The hood doesn’t open. It has nowhere near the attention to detail that can be found in some die cast car models that are equivalently priced.

    This is a great-looking Barbie car. I think it is much nicer than most of the other Barbie car options. It might be a disappointment if you are giving it to a child who is less concerned with dolls and just wants to play with it as a toy car. It might also be a disappointment if you are looking for a high quality replica of a MIni Cooper.

    I can’t help it- whenever I see these human-sized cars on the road, I crack up, and I crack up even more when I see a medium-sized guy smushed inside. Anyway, here’s the deal:

    -Easy to open. All you have to do is open one end of box, turn several dials on the inner pacakaging (yes, dials), and get rollin’.
    -Sturdy construction.
    -Doors open, seat belts work and are easy to use, and steering wheel turns for authentic detail nuts.
    -Gearshift, GPS, and general dashboard stuff is all there.
    -Rolls easily.
    -Dolls fit in front seats perfectly.
    -No batteries.
    -Great backseat storage for when dolls want a weekend getaway.
    -The absence of pink gives this car a racier, more sophisticated feel.

    O.K., here are three tiny details which might bother some people, so pay attention:
    -The folded-down convertible top is just for show, it cannot actually move. It is molded, hard plastic. Avoid inclement weather.
    -The back seat can only fit dolls who want to be in a parade or cruise down South Street (Philly). They cannot sit down properly- their rumps have to rest on the headrests.
    -Side view mirrors come unattached. They always end up falling off after placement.

    We paid $20.00 for this car on sale at Wal-Mart. Not sure if there are any left, so be quick! Dolls not included. I prefer Ryan over Ken, anyway. He is still hangin’ with the Monster High chickies (re: my Ryan review). Roller-girl Lagoona is his new girl, and they have now ditched the 80ish jeep for this baby.

    The wheels don’t go around on this car. I find that a great drawback. It has a hefty price as well. I did not think it was worth the money. The doors do not open either.
