As if another reason was needed why we all want Barbie’s life, she now has her very own (brand new) Travel Dream Plane and helicopter. Which will you choose is the real question. Here’s everything we know about these must-have toys for 2019.
Barbie is many things and, well, a worldly traveler is one of them! Whether she’s going to be the pilot or just the passenger, one thing is for sure, she’s arriving to her destination in style this year. Introduced at the recent New York Toy Fair, one of the most sought after new toys for girls and boys is the Barbie Travel Dream Plane, followed by the the new Barbie Travel Helicopter.
Let’s start with her plane. Reimagined for the 2019 traveler, this hot-pink plane opens up and seats two passengers and 1 pilot. Will she be the pilot or just lounge in first class? Sky is the limit! The two first class seats (with seatbelts) actually recline or can be positioned upright. Be sure to make sure seats are upright for takeoff and landing (always).
This flashy plane also has two luggage compartments that open and close and can each fit a suitcase. Be sure to stow everything prior to takeoff thankyouverymuch. The fun continues because it also comes with over 10 fun and exciting accessories. We’re talking about travel essentials like:
- 1 pink suitcase
- 1 pair of purple headphones
- 1 water bottle
- 1 yellow sleep mask
- 2 green blankets
- 1 food cart with coffee cup
Oh, and of course it also comes with a cute little puppy! We assume it’s her emotional support animal and that’s why it can easily accompany her on the flight.
When is the Official Release Date?
The folks at Mattel have announced that the Barbie Travel Dream Plane will be ready for takeoff and released to the public in the Fall of 2019. Our best guess is September 2019. No word yet on pre-order dates, but we’ll keep you posted so be sure to check back!
What’s the Price Going to Be?
This one is a bit on the pricer side, but nothing that we’re not used to with Barbie. The suggested retail price comes in at $75.00.
Next Up is the New Barbie Travel Helicopter! If she’s looking to take a quick trip, this is her best bet. It seats two (dolls sold separately, not that you don’t already have a ton of extras!), has seats with seatbelts (safety first!) and the silver propeller even spins. Get ready for their imaginations to soar!
This one will cost you $29.99 and are already hard to come by, but recently Amazon had them in-stock here!
