Display barbie; not compatible with other clothes or accessories. My niece loves all things girly and this Barbie seemed like the perfect girly toy that she would love.In theory:Barbie + Fairy + Princess + Glitter + Satin + Pink + Purple = a sure win.However, once the initial “Oh” factor wears off, this Barbie has limited play value as the wing mechanism is permanently attached to her back and stick out like a large square backpack which prevents any Barbie clothes from fitting her. The wings themselves do detach, but the large backpack mechanism is still there.The one feature this Barbie has is the wing mechanism which is actually quite impressive. The large protruding mechanism mentioned above is what the large glittery wings are inserted to. Then turning the knob in one direction transforms the wings into a long satiny skirt by wrapping them around her legs. Turning the mechanism the other way unwraps the wings back into wings. Pushing further pops the wings out form the protruding mechanism…

Barbie Mariposa PROS: I love her shoes, her dress, and her wings. The wings aren’t as large an impediment to movement as I would have thought. Her legs bend and she can sit.CONS: I don’t really care for the look of the skirt when the wings are down. It doesn’t look much like a skirt and the material looks cheap. The wings are not shiny on the back and so it doesn’t make for an impressive look.My doll’s face is so so. If you’ve ever shopped for a doll in the store, you know not every doll looks exactly the same despite being the same doll. The eyes on the doll I received are too close together.It takes a LOT of spinning to pin down the wings. My daughter had a lot of difficulty with this mechanism.She will probably be unable to wear any other Barbie clothing because of the mechanics on her back used to lower the wings.I really hate that it seems to be that piercing a doll’s head with plastic ties to hold her in place is becoming standard…
