River is one of the My Scene dolls and one of the first My Scene boys. He’s of a Hispanic descent. River is the vocalist and bass guitarist of the gang's rock band Urban Desire. He lives for music and he feels that it is the only way he can express himself. River is romantically tied to Barbie.


River is the "musician character" and by all accounts so far "the bad boy". A self-described "Total Rocker", River spends most of his time playing gigs at clubs with several different bands and chasing away girls who dig him. His musical instrument of choice is the electric guitar and likes the post-punk scene.

Physical Appearance[]

River is a muscular build teenage boy with spiky black hair, light skin tone, goatee and brown eyes.


River first met the girls in Next Stop, before asking Barbie out in Hanging Out. He’s best friends with Bryant, Sutton, Ellis and Hudson. His female friends are Madison, Chelsea, Nolee, Delancey and Kenzie. River is romantically linked to Barbie. Barbie and River are featured as boyfriend and girlfriend in many webisodes, doll lines and movies. They celebrated their 1 year anniversary in First Anniversary and he got her a locket for Valentine’s Day in Love & Friendship.

  • Before he and Barbie got together, Chelsea had a crush on him. When Chelsea started receiving gifts from a "secret admirer," she initially assumed/hoped that River was her secret admirer, but when she talked to River about it, he explained that not only was he not Chelsea's secret admirer, but that he only liked her as a friend. While Chelsea was a little bummed about this, she decided that she and River were probably better as friends after thinking over what he said.
