New Barbie Ad is Exactly the Message We Should Be Sending
Barbie's latest ad is perfect in every way.
Sure, when we think Barbie, we think tall, leggy, blonde, but in Mattel's latest ad for the high-heeled doll, we get to remember all the other great reasons we love Barbie.
One of my favorite Barbies was gymnast Stacie. She came with uneven bars and she was built to twist and turn like a real gymnast. I'm pretty sure I bought her with my own money from Toys 'R Us during the 1996 Olympics.
Barbie isn't just a pretty thing to play with, remember, Barbie is a gymnast, and a doctor, and a lawyer, a dentist, a firefighter, a my goodness Barbie has even been a presidential candidate.
This commercial captures all of that, in the most adorable way possible.
