What It Is
What It Is
With more than 100 careers, Barbie has been everything from a pediatrician to a paleontologist to the president. This year, Barbie's career is architect. The Barbie I Can Be... Architect doll comes dressed in a sharp business casual dress complete with the Manhattan skyline, a hard hat for site visits, blueprints of her projects, and an architect's model—of a fabulous Barbie Dream House. (That's exactly the kind of wit that Mattel designs into these great dolls.)
Why It’s Fun
From the days when Barbie was marketed under the banner, "We girls can do anything, right Barbie?" to today, one of the most engaging play patterns for girls has been imagining their future careers. That's the whole premise behind the Barbie I Can Be Line. This line inspires girls to imagine a whole range of possibilities for themselves while never moving away from the basics of fashion doll and imaginative play.
Who It’s For
The Barbie I Can Be... Architect doll is for girls ages 3 and up.
What to Be Aware of
The Barbie I Can Be line is also supported by a free iPhone app and a dedicated I Can Be website that offer a variety of games and activities related to the various dolls in the collections.
