What It Is

In celebration of the one-year anniversary of the Mars Rover Curiosity landing on August 6th, NASA has teamed up with Mattel for the Barbie I Can Be ... Mars Explorer doll. The 13-inch Barbie wears a stylish white space suit with pink details, a pink helmet, air tank, and pink boots that allow her to stand on her own.

Is It Fun?

Kids will like that this doll gives them the chance to play out the role of a space explorer. We like that it inspires girls to be adventurous and reach for the stars, which is what the Barbie I Can Be ... line is all about. It inspires girls to think about whom they could be as they get older, while still incorporating the fashion and imaginative play Barbie fans like.

Who It’s For

The Barbie I Can Be ... Mars Explorer doll is for ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The space suit and accessories are all removable so kids can dress Barbie in different outfits if they chose.
