Are barbies age appropriate for 8 1/2 to 10 year olds?

Do you Mom’s think that girls ages 8 1/2 and 10 are too old to play with Barbies? I mentioned that my girls wanted a Barbie dream house for Christmas, and I was told by a friend that I should find more age appropriate gifts. I really thought that was age appropriate? Feedback please?

My 8yr old loves Barbies and baby dolls. I will let her be little for as long as she wants.

If that’s what the girls want then get them it. It’s a toy, theres no reason they can’t have it. Better Barbie dolls then cell phones in my opinion

Don’t rush their childhood they’ll eventually grow out of things in my opinion

My 10 year old niece still plays with them. Let them stay innocent and play with toys. Before ya know it they have cell phones and all sit next to each other not talking lol I don’t see anything wrong with it.

She doesn’t have long to truly enjoy her childhood. If she wants Barbie’s then she should have Barbie’s.

Let her be little for as long as possible. Kids grow up way too fast these days

You’re never too old to play with Barbies

I played with barbies and bratz dolls til I was 12. It depends on the kid, but if your daughters likes dolls then she will love that gift.

I think you should get it for her, fuck what other people think. Your baby likes what she likes :woman_shrugging:t3:

I played with Barbies until I was 15 years old. In fact I still have them and bring them out and play with my neice with then.
Let then enjoy them. Good fun creativity.
