My 6-year-old loves barbie.com. Just had a look for myself
(FC3T3/Firefox/Flash/Java/RealPlayer). Looks like the site makes *very*
heavy use of Flash. You might make sure you have all of the updates,
especially latest Flash and Java plugins, and try again.

OTOH, if there is anything requiring Shockwave Director (less and less
so I'm finding), it will definitely not work.
