Presidential Barbies Are Here to Prove That Girls Can Be Anything

Barbie now gets a Vice President to join her cabinet.

After taking on occupations such as game developer and Olympic athlete, Barbie dolls now embark on a new career as President and Vice President. While President Barbie has previously been available, it is the very first time that Mattel will release Vice President Barbie dolls. The two Presidential dolls are available for purchase as a pair, with each model coming in a variety of skin tones, face shapes, as well as hairstyles. According to Lisa McKnight, the general manager and senior vice president of Barbie for Mattel, these new dolls will hopefully continue the company’s “efforts to expose girls to inspiring careers that are underrepresented by women.”

Retailed at $24.99 USD, you can now pre-order the President and Vice President Barbie dolls online.
