Barbie Hello Dreamhouse Review – Who would have ever thought that Barbie Doll houses would become this high-tech? The original houses had doors and windows that could be opened, stickers that looked like household items and children were thrilled with all it could do. Barbie Hello Dreamhouse goes way beyond what the original houses could do and would have blown my mind when I was little to see something like it.
The Barbie Hello Dreamhouse is a high-tech modern home for Barbie and her friends that offers everything that a child could want. With this house they can have their dolls living in style and comfort, not to mention it will give the child’s imagination room to soar about what it would be like to live in a place just like the doll house.
The Barbie Hello Dreamhouse is packed with high-tech features that make it seem so real and just fun. This house has Wi-Fi speech recognition that allows children to program the home to do whatever they want and all they have to do is give the command.
There are four motors in this house that activate different things, the automatic elevator, spinning chandelier, stairs that turn into a slide and of course doors that open just using the voice command. With six rooms Barbie will have enough room to invite friends over.
Everything in these rooms, like the elevator and stairs, can be moved with the child just telling it to. There is a Hello Dreamhouse app that you can use to program different sounds into different rooms and you even have the option to record your own sounds to use.
Along with the voice commands there are also 13 switches that will activate different sounds and lights in the rooms. For example, there is a nice fireplace in the Barbie Hello Dreamhouse and with the flip of a switch there will be a nice glowing fire with sounds and light. The shower, oven and office desk also have sounds that can be activated with the switches.
The high-tech features are not all that is included with this house. There are also many pieces of modern furniture that will provide tons of fun for a child as they rearrange the house to where it is exactly like they want it. Some of these pieces, such as a tablet and water bottle, can actually be held by the dolls, which brings a little more realism to this dream home.
This house is easily programmable. It comes with a how to video to guide parents through the set up process so that the Barbie Hello Dreamhouse can be correctly connected to a Wi-Fi network. Once connected to a Wi-Fi network the voice commands can be activated. Parents will have to create what is called a Toy Talk account and the app will guide them through this setup. The app is compatible with the electronic devices listed below.
