Don your tiara and pick up your wand, for only true, good princesses can enter the enchanted world of Barbie as Rapunzel.
Rapunzel and Prince Stefan have organised a masked ball, but they didn't invite the local wicked witch, Gothel. When Gothel finds out, she is furious and promptly casts an evil spell over the castle and its inhabitants. The prince is turned to stone, the jewels from his crown are scattered around, and the enchanted castle is immersed in darkness. When Rapunzel and her trusty purple--and very cute--dragon friend enter the doomed castle, they are challenged by the witch to find the jewels in order to rescue the prince and restore the castle to its former glory.
One of the most magical, creative packages on the market, this interactive adventure really is superlative. The graphics are fantastic and pixels do not stick between screens. The movement is fluid and controlled and the sound is excellent.
This package also develops basic PC skills, creativity, and imagination, and encourages colour recognition, shape matching, hand-to-eye coordination, and cause-and-effect recognition skills. The accompanying music completes the magical experience.
Barbie as Rapunzel is accompanied by a clear, comprehensive instruction booklet that should probably be read by a parent before commencing. That said, instructions are given throughout the quest in a clear, slow voice and objects flash onscreen to reinforce the message. The help section can also be accessed at any time. The manufacturer recommends this package for children ages 5 and older, and though help may be required to begin with, a computer-literate 5- or 6-year-old will soon get the hang of things and be able to play alone. All in all, a superb package that kids, Barbie fans or not, will just love. --Susan Naylor, Amazon.co.uk
Amazon.com Product Description
Use your creativity and imagination to help Barbie and her purple dragon friend, Penelope, break Gothel's evil spell. Handsome Prince Stefan was turned into a stone statue by the spell, and his enchanted castle lies in ruins, with the royal jewels that will set him free hidden--only Barbie, as Rapunzel, can break the wicked spell. And once Gothel's spell is broken, the prince freed, and the castle restored, kids can celebrate with Stefan and Rapunzel at a brilliant masquerade ball and save their creations in a magic memory scrapbook that can also be printed.
In Barbie as Rapunzel: A Creative Adventure, kids journey through eight interactive activities, including Magical Mosaics, Design a Throne, Garden Maze, Princess Paintings, Magical Masquerade, and more. The Magic Paint Box guides kids creatively through each activity. It's filled with tools, like a magic wand, twinkle sprinkles, and living stickers, so kids can paint, add textures, and even animate objects, as they help Rapunzel rescue the prince, find the crown jewels, and restore the royal castle.

A Must-Have for Barbie Fans, Aug 20, 2023
My three and six year-old daughters absolutely love this game. The graphics are colorful and rich in detail, and there is so much to do! Eight months since they got it, and it is still played with on almost a daily basis. Highly recommended.

Barbie Rupenzel CD - Good but annoying parts, Aug 5, 2023
I'm StoryMaker. Me, Russian Blue Witch, and Chocolate Dog borrowed it from a friend who has lots of computer games and I'm jeolus. Anyways, I'm a good artist. I love art. Only I can find this a little bad. Something that really really really really annoys me is you can only fit 12 names on the sign-in list! That is NOT average, I read you can fit 99 names on other games. And since this is like other games and you need to start a new user for a new game after me and RBW and C-Dog played it a few times whenever we tried to type a name in the box it gave us an error message that said that the list is full and you press Ctrl and D to delete a name or something and I counted the users...there are 12. And it is hard to choose what things to use and I like the things where you don't choose from things and it annoys me in those things you can't get out of the lines even though you're using a P-brush. Espeaking of p-brushes the p-brush in the 'choose' thing it is annoying because you can't to half-n-half! And after you do something, you can't change it and when you're done and go to the maskarade ball there ussaly is no mask! What I mean is Barbie is not holding a mask, just a stick with a feather on it. Signed, StoryMaker. "Gotta trust the kid's review!"

Wonderful Game, Feb 19, 2023
Got the game for my daughter when she was four and she LOVES it. She finished it rather quickly and the games are not particularly difficult or educational, but she still occasionally likes to play it. It's a beautiful game. I wrote this review because the game froze on us as well. I had to update our video card driver and it has worked perfectly since. Hope this helps.

The BEST Software Game My Daughter Has... Hands Down., Jan 30, 2023
First off, I have to say that I am really surprised about the negative reviews and believe their technical problems are due to their hardware/operating system limitations.
That said, I must say this is the most comprehensive, beautiful, creative, fun game my daughter has. She plays if for hours!
