I’ve always known Barbie could be anything. The Barbies of my youth must have come from money though, as all they did was travel around the world (aka my basement) in their cool camper van. Chelsea’s Barbies, aside from being nudists (really… she has no use for any of their clothes?!), tend to have super powers or are on secret spy missions (as secret as a naked spy can be). Lately though, Barbie has also become a swimming teacher (still, a bathing suit may be more appropriate), something that Chelsea talks about being when she grows up.
With over 155 careers and counting, there isn’t a plastic ceiling Barbie hasn’t broken. From Mermaid to Movie Star, Pet Vet to Police Officer, Fashionista to Fairy Princess, there are countless choices for your little ones to let their imagination soar. There’s no such thing as too wild a dream, too big a hope or too fantastic a wish when it comes to Barbie and the tradition continues this fall, as we bring this to life with the new “You Can be Anything” campaign!
Barbie is ready to make bold business moves and strike out on her own to achieve her career dreams. Your little ones might not yet know what a CEO is, but with Barbie they’re learning that it’s an obtainable goal.
By encouraging your little ones to make believe with lots of different career options, you’re showing them that the world really is their oyster. From public relations to investment management, there’s no limit to their options!
