LeapFrog has welcomed Barbie back to its game portfolio with the addition of Barbie: Malibu Mysteries.
The detective style games aims to offer kids a way to learn key reading and problem solving skills through hidden object games.
Players are challenged to help Barbie catch a thief and track down missing items by collecting clues and solving three mysteries.
Youngsters will have to identify words to dress Barbie in a range of mix and match outfits while building listening, reading, vocabulary and word recognition skills.
The latest addition will sit alongside a new range of Barbie apps and videos in the LeapFrog App Centre, inclusing Barbie: Mermaid Tale, Barbie: Princess Charm School and Barbie: Mariposa.
