TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
With more than 100 careers, Barbie has been everything from a pediatrician to a paleontologist to the president. One of her newest careers is babysitter. The Barbie I Can Be Babysitter doll comes with a baby doll and a complete nursery set. There is a swing for the baby that really moves side to side, a changing table, a playpen, and a spinning mobile. There is also a lever on Barbie's back that allows Barbie to raise her arms. Place Barbie's hands through the straps on the baby's outfit so that Barbie has a good grasp on the baby. Then press the lever and Barbie lifts up the baby. The baby doll also drinks and wets. Fill the baby bottle with water and then squeeze the water into the baby's mouth. The diaper will change colors when it gets wet, so Barbie and girls know it's time for a change.
Why It’s Fun
The Barbie I Can Be line is all about letting girls explore different jobs and careers. Most young girls have had their own babysitters and want to play out that job themselves. This doll offers lots of interactive features so girls can play out the responsibilities of a babysitter with Barbie.

What to Be Aware of

The Barbie I Can Be line is also supported by a free iPhone app and a dedicated I Can Be website that offer a variety of games and activities related to the various dolls in the collection.
