As a role model to millions of little girls all over the world, Barbie has a big responsibility! That is why having over 125 careers truly shows that Barbie can be anything she wants, which is something that is empowering to young girls who don’t always feel in control of their lives.
One of Barbie’s careers is a fashion designer. I recently had the opportunity to discover, along with my five-year-old daughter, the world of Barbie, the Fashion Designer. At the event my daughter got to design some clothes for Barbie, using the Barbie Design and Dress Studio kit. ($21.99).
She also got to try on clothes at a virtual closet, available at Barbie The Dream Closet. This cool website allows girls to use a webcam to try on some of Barbie’s stunning clothes. (Be sure to also check out BarbieWow.com for more fun online design activities). My daughter also got the opportunity to get her hair done by a professional hair stylist and – best of all – she met a real Barbie!
Whether she’s a fashion designer, a teacher or a vet, Barbie is truly an inspiration that if you can dream it, you can be it!
I was not paid to write this post. I did receive a gift bag.

She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in English Literature as well as a Law Degree, but writing about nutrition and helping families eat better is her true passion. She grew up in both California and Israel, which explains her love for California cuisine (fresh, local ingredients), as well as Mediterranean food (flavorful, heart-healthy ingredients). Maytal is a stay-at-home mom to two kids (ages 5 & 2) and works hard to ensure they eat healthy, unprocessed food, while trying to make it as delicious as possible. Married to a vegetarian and being a pescetarian herself, this can be quite a challenge. On an ordinary night at her dinner table, you can hear things like “More cauliflower, please!”, “How come I didn’t get a lot of tomato?” and “Fish oil! Yaaaay!”.
