Barbie Fashionistas: Webisodes
Barbie Fashionistas is an online 5 part series of webisodes, or short films, that was originally released on the Barbie.com website, back in 2010.
The series was made as part of a promotion of the Barbie Fashionistas range of dolls, which was very popular at the time.
These webisodes have a running time of around four and a half minutes and follow the main characters: Wild, Girly, Glam, Artsy, Sassy and Cutie and their friends on adventures dealing with a range of situations such as getting a first job, going on a first date and even becoming a famous rock star.
The animation is rather good and done in a flash-like fashion, which is common to most webisode series, though this is done with a slightly higher quality than others I have seen.
The episode can now be seen of various YouTube channels and is a must to be seen by all Barbie fans.
