True story – I have never owned a Barbie. I never wanted one. I grew up on Pensacola Beach where the pool and the Gulf of Mexico were my playground. I seldom spent any time indoors that I remember.
Another true story – my girls have never owned one either. We just arent “Barbie people.” I have friends who have a zillion – keeping some of them in the packaging so they stay pristine. And I admit I have oogled over some of the amazingly beautiful Holiday Barbies, and I really wanted the Tokidoki Barbie but I never found one – so I have never actually purchased one.
However… all of that is about to change.
Entrepreneur Barbie was announced this week at Toy Fair, and I can not wait to get my hands on one. The new entrepreneur doll is part of Barbie’s I Can Be career line as its Career of the Year. Sporting a hot pink shift dress with a black belt and heels, she also totes a tablet and smart phone… must haves for any entrepreneur, right?
I can not find when this beauty will be hitting the shelves, but I can assure you I will be one of the first standing in line to buy one. If you see one – be sure to let me know where!!
Did you have Barbie’s growing up? Which one was your favorite?
