What It Is

What It Is

Throughout Barbie's 50+ years, she's had 125 careers. One of Barbie's latest jobs is Pet Vet, aka veterinarian. Wearing a powder pink dress with matching shoes, the Barbie I Can Be... Pet Vet doll comes with a cute puppy figure, vet accessories (such as a clipboard and bottle of "medicine"), and a hairbrush. The doll also comes with a special code that unlocks career-themed content online at for even more play.

Why It’s Fun

Barbie I Can Be... dolls and accessories let girls play out different roles and careers. Animal lovers will be happy to see their favorite fashion doll as a veterinarian. Girls will especially enjoy the unlocked online content that takes them further into the world of veterinarians with themed games and video of a real-life pet vet.

Who It’s For

Barbie is definitely a girls' brand, but this particular doll will really appeal to girls with an interest in animals or an interest in becoming a veterinarian. These are typically girls who have passed the sparkly princess stage and are fantasizing about what they want to be when they grow up.

What to Be Aware of

This is great wholesome play as kids think about what they want to do when they grow up.

(There is a certain level of make-believe. It's probably best to explain to girls that real-life vets spend a lot of time on their feet and, therefore, don't wear wedge-heeled clogs everyday. Only Barbie can pull that off and still have that wonderful smile.)
