Summary: I only paid $20 for this, and under those conditions I would recommend this for people who are a fan of the series. I played it through with my four year old and she enjoyed it, but struggled with some of the mini games. Pros: It is a good fit with the show, both animation style and humor.

Summary: This game is quite deceiving in the description. I purchased it believing it would be alot like the NES Barbies Adventures updated to the current Gen with the tie in to the show. Sadly it is just a simple build of Barbies dream-house with the same repeating task of getting four items to unlock terrible mini games. I played it all the way to the end simply to listen to the quite heavy adult humor the houses computer used to sarcastically belittle the players.
Summary: Glad I didn't pay very much for this. There's not much to it content wise. That being said, the 5yr old that got the actual dream house for her b'day just before Xmas just flipped out over this and played it incessantly for over week. I guess a child's imagination can make up for the lack of effort that went into developing the game play? Except for that I would have given it 2 stars.
Summary: My five year old daughter enjoys playing this Wii U game. It is pretty straightforward, and she loves that she can play by herself. She dresses Barbie in different outfits, and plays a series of mini-games. The games are just challenging enough to keep her practicing. That being said, I think this game is geared more towards the 4-7 age range. Older girls may become bored.
