Players must talk to their boyfriend Ken (using a real voice audio soundtrack) in addition to driving a yellow convertible around town, trying out swimming outfits (both one-piece and two-piece swimsuits can be used) in addition to dresses and shoes. Options for dates include either a dinner out on the town or a relaxing day at the beach.
An incorrect combination of clothing will force Barbie to skip the date sequence and work her way towards the next objective while a correct combination will allow players to see Barbie and her date in a photograph of the event. This game has been negatively cited for not teaching young children about the value of money. The person who criticized this game suggested playing Donald Duck's Playground instead; as it teaches players about working in a series of jobs to earn money to buy children's toys.
