Kids say (5):

The best part about Barbie: Jet, Set & Style is its ease of use. The instructions are always clear and concise and kids are reminded what to do each time an activity comes up. The way the game is set up -- with fashion emergencies popping up around the world and you needed to traverse the globe and solve specific challenges -- really works, too. The tasks can get rather repetitive, though, especially the haircutting (during which you are often forced to curl a woman's hair even if the style you chose doesn't include curls). At times, it feels like too much of the game is about performing rote maneuvers, like brushing or curling. More chances for true creativity, as when you select an outfit or makeup colors, could have gone a long way.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
