The enchanting story of Barbie in the 12 Dancing Princesses (now available on DVD) tells the story of Barbie as the beautiful Princess Genevieve and her eleven dancing princess sisters. Under the care of an overly strict duchess who forbids dancing, singing and anything that makes them happy, the girls' future looks bleak until the princesses discover that twelve special books bequeathed to them by their late mother open the gateway to a magical world where wishes are granted and dancing is celebrated. Genevieve and her sisters find a way to bring dancing and joy back into their lives as they work together in order to save their father and his kingdom. Dressed in a beautiful pink gown with a gold tiara and a matching necklace, the interactive Princess Genevieve 'Let's Dance' doll is sure to spark hours of imaginary playtime among girls, whether they?ve seen the movie or not. Princess Genevieve comes with an electronic doll stand and base that allows you to play with her in three different ways. In 'Performance' mode, Genevieve performs multiple dance routines to her own recorded music. In 'Teach Me' mode, Genevieve actually shows and tells you how to perform each dance movement ('Arms overhead', 'Now, spin'), one at a time, all while giving you positive encouragement ('Very good!', 'Take a bow'). Then she asks you to imitate the movements. And finally, in 'Play With Me' mode, Genevieve will move her arms and left leg in direct response to your movements when you wear the included wrist and foot controllers. Operating at a frequency of 49 MHz, the Princess Genevieve 'Let's Dance' doll requires 4 AA and 6 AAA alkaline batteries (not included).
