Kristyn Farraday is the main protagonist in Barbie in The Pink Shoes and Land of Sweets. She is played by Barbie and voiced by Kelly Sheridan. Kristyn is ballet student who dreams of becoming a world-class dancer.


Barbie in The Pink Shoes[]

When practicing for an important showcase, Kristyn rips her pointe shoes by accident, so she and her best friend Hailey go to get new ones. They are given magical pink shoes by Madame Katerina, a seamstress, which take them to a magical ballet world.

Kristyn has a habit of not following the correct choreography, because she can't help but follow her own individual dance steps. By changing the stories of the ballets in the ballet world, Kristyn gets in trouble with the world's ruler, the Snow Queen, and has to dance her own steps to defeat her. Once she proves that there's more than one way to tell the story, she defeats the Snow Queen by dancing her own moves and she saves Hailey. Then, by removing the pink dance shoes, she brings the two girls back to the costume shop in time for the performance. She is later told how amazing her dancing is through dancing from her heart and is congratulated for just that by Madame Natasha, Tara, Hailey, and the dance scouts.

Land of Sweets[]

While doing the ballet training, Hannah doesn't feel brave enough to perform her dance show. Later, Kristyn gives her the pink shoes and they're magically transported to a magical world called "The Land of Cockaigne". They're dancing together and later, they're returned magically to the stage and everyone claps for them.

Physical Appearance[]

Kristyn Farraday is a teenage girl with light skin, light cornflower blue eyes, and long honey blonde hair.

Training outfit[]

For ballet training, Kristyn wears a long-sleeved lilac pink ballet sweater over a solid black spaghetti-strap leotard, a light pink sheer ballet skirt wrapped around her waist tied in a bow on her right, light pink tights, white point shoes( before she received the pink shoes) and lilac pink knee-length leg warmers. Kristyn wears her hair in a tight bun for ballet lessons. She wears this outfit too in the Christmas Special.

Pink Tutu[]

Kristyn wears a fuchsia glittery tutu. It is quite simple, and the only decorations it has are on the top. When she wears this dress, she has white tights, and her hair is in an updo. She also has a white tiara with a pink flower gem in the middle.

Milkmaid performance dress[]

Kristyn wears this dress when she performs as the milkmaid. This dress is purple and glittery. It contains a purple top with a white glitter decoration and a blue gem in the middle of it, and the bottom of it has purple and blue feathers. When she wears this dress, she has white tights, and her hairstyle and crown are the same as when she wears the pink tutu. With it, she wears the white pointed shoes that Tara gave to her.


When Kristyn transforms into Giselle, she has light skin, blue eyes, and strawberry blonde hair tied with a hair tie with flowers in it. She wears a butterfly-inspired ballet dress: the neckline of it is on the shape of a butterfly's wings, and the rest of the top of it has pink and blue decorations, while the bottom of the dress is blue with decorations in the shape of the butterfly wings. With this dress, she wears white tights and the pink shoes.


When Kristyn transforms into Odette, she has long dark brown hair, on which she wears a purple swan crown. By swan lake, she wears a purple ballet tutu which is swan-inspired: the top has some swan wings, while the bottom of the dress is purple and glittery. It has swan feathers. With this tutu, she wears white tights and the pink shoes. Her dance outfit is similar, but the top has a pair of swan wings with a purple gem in the middle and purple decorations.

Final Performance[]

This is the dress the milkmaid dress transforms into during the final performance of the movie. Like the milkmaid dress, the only differences with it are that it is pink, and, instead of feathers, there are rose petals. She has white tights when she wears this dress, and her hair is in a half ponytail. She also has a white tiara with a pink flower gem in the middle. Her white shoes change magically into the pink shoes.

Land of Sweets[]

In this short film, she is seen with a pink tiara with some small pink gems and a pink ballet dress. The embroidery of the bodice and the rose petal on her tutu are glittery pink. The tutu is full, and it is a fuchsia-pink. She also wears white tights and pink shoes. Her hair is in a half ponytail, which is the same hairstyle she wears during her last performance.


Kristyn is nice, adventurous, brave, and a bit unconfident. She has a sense of humor. She loves ballet and is a good dancer, but she loses herself in the music and lets her feet do "their own thing" when she is on the stage.
