60 years. More than 200 professions. Barbie® has been breaking the "plastic ceiling" for decades, and Barbie® Signature is celebrating this aspirational series of dolls with a Barbie® 60th Anniversary Career Doll Limited Edition Bundle, available in the online shop beginning 12/18 at 9:00am PT!
You could technically consider her 1959 Original Teenage Fashion Model™ debut as her first "job." But for historical purposes, the 1965 Astronaut Barbie® serves as the first example of Barbie® working in a field where women are traditionally underrepresented, to show girls that they can be anything!
This limited edition bundle, created for Barbie® Signature, gathers together six dolls that honor some of Barbie® doll's most iconic careers. Their fashions have been updated for 2019, and you'll also find that the set includes dolls with a variety of body types, skin tones, eye colors, and hairstyles. Each doll also comes with a related accessory for a day on the job.
The six roles represented in the set (and the years of the original releases) include:
- Astronaut (1965)
- Athlete (1975)
- Pilot (1989)
- Firefighter (1995)
- Political Candidate (2004)
- News Anchor (2010)
The bundle packaging features special background notes, and images of each of the original career dolls. Made to inspire limitless potential, the Barbie® 60th Anniversary Career Doll Limited Edition Bundle works as a treasured collectible keepsake and a gift to help girls of all ages imagine everything they can become. Head to the online shop on Wednesday, 12/18 and get this special set for yourself or someone you love!
