What We Do Like About This Barbie
Probably the best features of this Barbie is that the cat actually flies!!

The action is controlled by a button located at the back of Barbie’s right leg.
All you need to do is connect Hover Cat’s control cord to Barbie’s hands. Then press the switch and look in amazement as the cat flies around.

There are propellers on the cat that get triggered when the button is pushed. This is a really great attribute because it will spark the imagination of youngsters for great adventure and narration.

The star of the show, Barbie, is not too shabby herself. For this model has the world-famous doll wearing a futuristic-looking, fabulous pink one-piece suit. A shiny holographic vest, a plastic skirt, a blue utility belt, a blue star hairclip and silver boots complete Barbie’s wardrobe.

And if you think the Hover Cat needs a bit of rest from too much flying you can get her out from her spacesuit.
