Most little girls are Barbie fans at some point in their childhood. My little one is just now getting to that stage and frequently asks for the newest Barbies and their movies that are out. Her most recent request was for the Barbie Mariposa Magic Wings doll. Now just so their is no confusion, this is the Mariposa doll with the very large wings not the doll with the small fairy wings.
I bought this Barbie at a great deal considering she had just came out. Plus she came with a $3 coupon so you could purchase her movie and a cute poster for the wall. Pretty good deal in itself and Barbie is always great fun for little girls who love her.
Anyway, we brought this doll home and opened the package and I proceeded to assmble her since her wings were not attached yet. I quickly learned that she was a waste of money. The wings are very hard to get latched into the plastic mechanism and once they were attached they would just randomly fall off during playing. Very disappointing.
After the first day my daughter just completely removed the wings and threw them down and now just plays with the doll. She was very disappointed in this doll as was I. I have bought hundreds of Barbies but never one with such poor quality. I do not recommend buying this one for your little girl and would suggest if Mariposa is greatly wanted that you go with the doll with the small fairy wings instead.
