Have you heard of the new Barbie body types? It has been all over my FB newsfeed the past week. Mattel has released new Barbie dolls that are curvy, petite, and tall. These new dolls also come in various ethnicity. Well, well, well…Barbie just keeps on evolving!
A few years back, Barbie also released a new line of dolls to show that girls can be so much more than pretty little princesses. All kids have very wild imaginations. Many have very lofty dreams of becoming astronauts, superheroes, pilots, engineers, etc. However, for many girls, these dreams are dashed when they enter adulthood. Sadly, in our modern age, there are still those with stone-aged beliefs that some careers are not for women at all.
Well now, little girls have a new champion to inspire them to dream big and to believe that they can be anything they dream to be. ANYTHING!
The Barbie I Can Be dolls empowers children to discover and harness their limitless potentials. I saw this video of little girls being given a chance to be what they want to be and it’s just too cute not to share. Watch this!
If You Can Dream It, You Can Be It
The Barbie I Can Be dolls encourage young girls to break free from conventional careers for women. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with being a fashion designer, a tour guide, or a flight attendant. I don’t even see anything wrong with little girls dreaming of becoming princesses or mermaids. But Barbie I Can Be helps them discover all their potentials and encourages them to be whatever they want to be – that includes having careers that used to be viewed as for men only.
With Barbie I Can Be dolls, little girls can be space explorers, pilots, secret agents, computer engineers, athletes, and so many others. They do not have to conform to the typical careers for women and can be anything they absolutely want to be.
Jade Can Be a Dessert Chef
A couple of weeks ago, Richprime sent our little girl a wonderful surprise – a Barbie I Can Be Dessert Chef Playset! My daughter isn’t too keen about dolls but this was an exception as she loves to bake too. The first thing she said when she opened the brown bag was, “Ohhhh! How did they know I want to be a pastry chef?!”
The Barbie I Can Be Dessert Chef Playset comes with a Barbie doll with an apron and a chef’s hat, Blissa the cat with her own little chef’s hat, a stove top oven that “cooks” cake, baked and unbaked cakes, a cupcake that Barbie “bites” into, a fish cake for Blissa, a mixing bowl, a spatula, and a pink mitten.
The oven tray flips when the door is closed. Put the baked cake inside first and close the door. Open it again and place the pan with light brown “batter” inside. Close the door and …Voila! The perfectly “baked” cake is ready.
To make sure that her treats are delicious, Barbie takes a bite out of a cupcake. Attach the cupcake Barbie’s hand, press the lever on her back and watch her take a bite of her delicious cuppycake. Of course, Blissa should also have a share of the treats with her very own fish cake.
My little Jade loves this playset because it allows her to pretend to be a chef. She says it’s like magic and she wants to be a dessert chef too.
Jade Reviews I Can Be Dessert Chef
Want to know what else Jade has to say about her I Can Be A Dessert Chef Barbie? Watch the video below. (forgive the very amateurish vid!!! I know grade schoolers who do better. tee-hee!)
I know our video’s so crude! That’s the fault of a non-techie mom who had just tried her hand at taking and editing videos on her smartphone. 😛 But, as Barbie says, we all can be anything we want to be so I believe that our next video will be so much better. 🙂
Well, back to Barbie I Can Be, unlike her other dolls, this one has not been stashed inside the toy cabinet. She’s had it for a week already and still plays with it every day. That’s already a record for her considering that her dolls usually go straight to the toy cabinet after just a day. 🙂
Now, she’s asking me to get her the I Can Be Professor and I Can Be Vet. Look’s like my daughter now has a liking for dolls. 😉
