Barbie to star in first full length Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures feature

Barbie is to star in a new special – and the first full-length feature – episode of the animated series Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures. It follows the successful launch of the new series back in 2018 when it landed on the hit kids’ channel, POP.

Thanks to its successful run, Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures has now been renewed for a second season, and will include an 82-minute special called Magical Mermaid Mystery. The special will see Barbie travel to Malibu from Costa Rica for a mermaid adventure.

It will premiere on POP during October Half Term at 11am on Saturday, October 26 and Sunday October 27. The content will be repeated the following week as half term ends.

“Barbie DreamHouse Adventures is a key way for kids to connect with the character of Barbie, her friends and family through real-life adventures and relatable stories,” said Pauline De La Riviere, marketing director, Mattel UK.

“The special episode adds a new fantasy thematic we know kids will love. We are thrilled to announce the first ever special and Series 2 to entertain kids all through half term and beyond.”

From November Series 2 will air 22 x 26 minute episodes weekdays at 3:30pm and weekends at 2:30pm, where you can watch as Barbie navigates school-life and sports.
