Don’t call her Barbara!
She’s been a veterinarian, a doctor, a rock star, a chef, an astronaut, a teacher, a flight attendant, a scientist, a ballerina, a mermaid, and more–she’s Barbie. This iconic doll was introduced in 1959, and she hasn’t missed a beat since. An integral part of so many childhoods, Barbie has often found herself at the center of cultural debates about women, girls, and gender as a whole, and she’s not shying away from the conversations. Barbie is an unabashed lover of the color pink, a jill of all trades, a friend to everyone, a site of evolving diversity, and most importantly, an independent woman. From playtime to movies, books, video games and more, Barbie shows kids that they can live their dreams.
If you’re ready to pass Barbie on to the next generation, or even if you want to indulge in a little nostalgia in anticipation of this summer’s upcoming blockbuster, Barbie, catch up to what this woman on the go has been up to lately with the newest Barbie titles!
