Barbie’s Latest ‘Career Of The Year’ Doll Is Here!

Barbie dolls have had many roles since their creation in 1959.

 

They’ve inspired children to follow their dreams, with careers like ballerinas, models, doctors, veterinarians, deejays and everything in between. And now, there’s a new inspirational version of the iconic doll on the market — and she’s here to encourage young girls to embark on engineering careers.

 

Mattel’s Barbie, who has explored over 200 careers since 1959 (some in fields where women aren’t strongly represented like computer engineering and video game development), just announced the latest “Career of the year” doll, and she’s a robotics engineer — a field that has only 12% of employees who are women.

 

This Barbie comes in four versions, with four different skin tones and hair types, each sporting a different hairstyle. But all four girls wear the same outfit: black jeans, a blue denim jacket, a graphic t-shirt, white sneakers and safety glasses.
