Barbie Spy Squad Chelsea Review

Heyyyyyy!

I hope you’re having an awesome day! πŸ˜€

Today I have a fun, different sort of review for you! As you all probably know by now, I LOVE mini dolls, mini pets, and miniatures in general. πŸ˜‰

However, just to give you a little news blurb, Urban Princesses Episode 2 is still heavily in production…I can’t WAIT to share it with you guys, but it’s a hard project to work on because I’ve been traveling recently and I can’t take it with me like I can with some projects. The Groovy Scoop set is HUGE, and the sets have only gotten more complicated in this episode. πŸ˜› BUT, hopefully it will all be worth the wait. πŸ™‚ ❀

While you wait, let’s get started with the review! πŸ™‚

Even when I was little, I almost liked my Kelly/Chelsea dolls better than my Barbie dolls themselves…I’m not entirely sure why, but they’re all just SO CUTE! πŸ™‚ Someday I hope to show you all my entire Kelly/Chelsea collection, and recently I’ve had my eye on the Dreamtopia Rainbow Cove set that has a Chelsea in each color of the rainbow! πŸ˜€

But anyway…I don’t know if any of y’all of ever been in a Tuesday Morning store, but let me tell you…it is the BEST place for dolls! They get in slightly older dolls, and they’re usually at least 50% off of the normal retail price…sometimes more! I was in there a few weeks ago, rummaging through the shelves, and I spotted THISΒ little cutie for only $5!

Also, let me just say that I would have DIED if Barbie Spy Squad had come out when I was little. I mean, I sort of already did at age 16 πŸ˜‰ , but you know. πŸ˜‰ Honestly, if you had asked me when I was anywhere between the ages of 5 and 12 what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you mermaid-fairy-princess-spy.

Here you can see the back of the packaging…they sure jammed a lot in there! I love the screenshots from the movie. Ken is so cute! πŸ˜‰

Let’s get this sweetie out of the box! πŸ™‚

IMG_6780

Here she is with her plastic shell removed….and here is her super cool city scape backdrop!

Here she is out of the box…she has a lot of extra accessories!

Also, I think we need to name her! As y’all probably know, I LOVE vintage spy TV shows,Β so I searched my brain and thought about my favorite female spies…and I came up with the name Cinnamon! πŸ™‚ Cinnamon is the main girl spy on the original 1966 Mission: Impossible TV show…andΒ I think she’s the perfect namesake for our little spy. πŸ™‚

Also, I may or may not have an obsession with cinnamon (as in the spice). πŸ˜‰

Cinnamon comes with a lot of accessories plastic tied and rubber banded to her head…including a super cool pink microphone headset, a pair of translucent pink sunglasses, and a pink hair extension! πŸ™‚

Here she is with her head accessories removed…she has slight box hair, but after a bit of brushing you can see that it’s very good quality hair, with a nice shape to it. πŸ™‚

IMG_6792Before and after brushing:

Here’s her super sweet face…which unfortunately has a small dent from where the glasses were rubber-banded. 😦 Thankfully, however, it’s a LOT less noticeable in real life than it is in photos.

I love herΒ face overall…she looks so sweet and genuine! You can see why I loved toting around Kelly/Chelsea dolls when I was little! πŸ™‚ ❀

Here is the pink hair extension that comes in Cinnamon’s hair…I like it a lot, but personally I think it looks better higher up on her head than it comes in the box. πŸ™‚

IMG_6818

It looks cute on Grace, too! πŸ™‚IMG_6819

Her final accessory is this adorable little tablet computer! I love it…it looks very spy-like! πŸ™‚

IMG_6821

AND, it looks great as a tablet with other dolls like Barbie, too! I LOVE accessories like this.

IMG_6839

Here are all of her accessories…I have to say, you’re getting a lot for your money, and as we’ll see later, these accessories are quite versatile!

IMG_6797

Here she is without any accessories…her outfit is super cute! It’s all plastic and none of it is removable (except her boots), and while that’s usually a pet peeve of mine, I don’t mind here. I don’t plan on redressing Cinnamon in a different outfit…I think she’ll always be a spy πŸ˜‰ , so I think it’s a super cute outfit and it doesn’t bother me than it’s permanent.

IMG_6803

It does have some glue-ish grunge on it that I think will come off pretty easilyIMG_6804

The fold details are really nice!IMG_6805

Here are Cinnamon’s super neat black angular boots!

IMG_6806

I also had fun trying on her accessories in various combinations…IMG_6810

….and found that her sunglasses are my favorite! πŸ™‚IMG_6814

But here’s the best part….Cinnamon’s accessories look ADORABLE on all of my older Kelly dolls, too! πŸ™‚Β IMG_6816

Here is Cinnamon with Jennifer, who is my other more recent Chelsea doll (from the Barbie: Rock n’ Royals movie, which is great, BTW) …and also my only other Chelsea with a molded top.

See…there’s an odd phenomenon with Kelly/Chelsea dolls that I think I’ve experienced since I was a wee lass…

…The more of them in the same picture, the cuter everything gets. πŸ˜‰

See? Here are two…

IMG_6823
A rocker and a spy…unlikely BFFs! πŸ™‚
IMG_6828
I love Jennifer’s hazel eyes! πŸ™‚

….Here are three…. πŸ˜‰

IMG_6832
Can you feel the cuteness growing? πŸ˜‰

…And with six!

AHHHHHHHHH!!! So much adorablenessss! πŸ™‚

IMG_6829

However, my favorite thing to do with these girls is to pose them with my Made to Move Barbie, Grace…because she can sit cross-legged and kneel, she can get down to their level and interact with them so well!

Here’s Cinnamon showing off her spy gear to the other girls! πŸ™‚

IMG_6834
“See? It can calculate the longitude and latitude of anyone holding the tracking device!”
IMG_6835
“I got sunglasses!” πŸ˜‰
IMG_6838
“ItΒ does match my dress so well, doesn’t it?” πŸ˜‰

In conclusion, I LOVE Cinnamon! She’s so cute, and comes with several very versatile accessories! I’m so happy to add a doll fromΒ Barbie: Spy Squad to my collection, and a Chelsea at that!

Did you all ever watch Barbie movies growing up? I think my absolute favorites were the Β Princess and the Pauper, the Three Musketeers, Mariposa, and the Island Princess. Oh, and a Fashion Fairytale…mainly because of the song “Get Your Sparkle On.” πŸ™‚

IMG_6844

I think this little spy will really like it around here. πŸ™‚ ❀

XOXOXO,

Grace

  1. Oh my gosh, she’s so adorable! I totally understand about almost liking Kelly better than Barbie-sized dolls…there’s something about their tiny-ness that’s just perfect. I’m just dying from how cute those last pictures are, of Cinnamon and the gang. I think Cinnamon is a perfect name for her…she’s too cute! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you so much, Claire!! I’m so glad you liked those photos–they were so much fun to take! πŸ˜€ Hehehe, I think she’ll get along well with Ginger Breadhouse–they’re both named after spices! πŸ˜‰ Thank you again for commenting! ❀
