Who Is This For?
Parents of young girls who want to indulge their little princesses’ desire to play with the iconic Barbie Doll will definitely grab the Barbie Endless Curls Doll, since it not only offers hours of fun, it also encourages kids’ creativity. Styling hair is now considered a sort of an art form, and expressing their creativity through this medium is not a bad way to get it started. Of course, hardcore fans of the Barbie franchise, who also happen to be avid collectors of the many Barbie editions that have come out over the years will also find this particular doll to be a worthy addition to their collection.

Things We Like
As expected, Barbie sports that signature look: long, blond hair, big blue eyes, and long legs. We like the overall look of the Barbie Endless Curls Doll, particularly its trendy pink-and-black party dress, paired with black, strappy high-heeled sandals. It is, in our opinion, the perfect canvas for practically any hairstyle. An attractive African American doll with long dark hair is also available.
The hair of this particular Barbie doll is especially made for easy styling, whether you want to straighten it or curl it using the curling tools or rollers. Tie it in a ponytail, put it up in a bun, create bouncy waves, or even style her hair into corkscrew curls – you can do as you wish! You can even have more fun adding color streaks into her hair, to add more character!
Normally, curling tools make use of heat to achieve the desired effect on the hair. The Barbie Endless Curls Doll tools do not use any heat. That is why parents do not have to worry about their kids being scalded or burnt while handling any of the curling tools. Even the hair accessories, such as the barrettes and Barbie label rubber bands, are faithful to the style that everyone has come to associate with Barbie!
Changing hair styles is also very easy, since all it takes is to comb it back into straightness using the included brush.
Things We Don’t Like
It would have been better if this particular Barbie has the ability to stand on its own strappy-heel-shod feet.
