Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures finally drops for Android

Barbie Dreamhouse AdventureNetflix’s Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures now has a game to go along with it allowing your kiddos to hang out in their own dream house and do a variety of activities that don’t involve dropping little Barbie shoes where you walk barefoot.

Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures was released last month on Apple, but the Android version just dropped along with the second season of the Netflix series.

While generally garnering positive reviews, the running complaints on the iOS version were out of control advertising. Pay to play seems to be a complaint on both platforms although if you consider it as a trial, you could just say the game is a $19.99 game. Not everything on mobile devices is free. Seriously, it’s a $20 game, you’ll probably be happy.

The price breakdown for individual Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures add-ons currently is:

  • $4.99 for the Puppies Pack
  • $4.99 for Ken’s Pool Party
  • $4.99 for Nikki’s Fashion Photobooth
  • $4.99 Daisey’s Dance Party
  • $4.99 Skipper’s Rock Band
  • $1.99 for Teresa playable character
  • $1.99 for Renee playable character
  • $1.99 for Barbie Decorator’s Box
  • $1.99 for Barbie Painter’s box

Or there’s the VIP package that unlocks everything for $19.99 which is a savings over buying individually of… math math math math…. math is hard: about $13

I haven’t spent a lot of time playing this as I’ve been otherwise busy not playing with Barbie as much as possible (you have no idea how much a 3yo values playing Barbie with her,) so I can’t comment much on the game as of yet.

I’ll see if I can force the children to look at an iPad tonight and play with Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures some.
