To all young girls aspiring to be journalists – the News Anchor Barbie! Oh, how I wish I’d had this empowering doll when I was a kid. Mattel says:
Barbie® I Can Be…™ dolls and accessories empower girls to play out different roles and “try on” fabulous careers, including news anchor, the first Barbie® profession chosen by global vote. Wearing a posh pink suit with black accents and carrying a B News folder, camera and microphone, this savvy journalist reports up-to-the-minute news in signature Barbie® style. The inspiring set also comes with a special code that unlocks career-themed content online, for even more digital play!
This is a doll who can be anything she wants. She can have a career in the fabulous world of journalism. But beware, says manufacturer, “doll cannot stand alone”. I expect she’ll need Editor-in-Chief Ken to hold her up.
