Mattel Releases New Politically-Themed Barbies
We are female, hear us roar. This is by far the most empowering line of barbies yet. Plus, who wouldn't want to dress their doll in a pantsuit?
Mattel's latest line of Barbies are politically themed and includes a presidential candidate, a campaign manager, a fundraiser, and a voter. They teamed up with She Should Run, a nonprofit that works to increase the number of women running for office.
"With less than a third of elected leaders in the U.S. being women, and Black women being even less represented in these positions, we designed the Barbie Campaign Team with a diverse set of dolls to show all girls they can raise their voices. Our goal is to remove barriers to leadership by giving girls the tools to imagine and play out their future roles." - Lisa McKnight, the SVP and global head of Barbie and dolls at Mattel
You can get all four dolls for just $39.99! Definitely adding this to my 2020 Christmas gift list for all the little ladies in my life. :)
