EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Barbie has held more than 200 careers during her 60 years, and she's not retiring now. Revisit some of her most iconic career moments with the special 60th Anniversary lineup of Barbie Careers dolls. Some of those careers include political candidate, astronaut, firefighter, and news anchor.

The political candidate doll, based on the 2016 Barbie President and Vice-President Dolls two-pack, wears a red-and-white tweed jacket with closure details and a blue pencil skirt. She accessorizes with simple silver jewelry and black ankle-strap heels.

The news anchor doll is based on the doll seen in the 2018 Barbie TV News Team set. She wears a dark pink sleeveless dress with a blue necklace and tan ankle-strap heels. She carries a microphone with a Barbie logo on it.

The astronaut doll is an updated version of the 1965 original and was also seen in the 2018 Barbie Astronaut & Space Scientist Dolls two-pack. This 60th anniversary version wears a white spacesuit decorated with pockets, wires, and monitors in blue and pink. The suit also includes white gloves, white boots, and a two-piece removable helmet.

And the firefighter doll, based on the original 1994 firefighter doll, wears a yellow two-piece uniform with walkie talkie and flashlight details printed on it. The doll also wears black boots and a removable yellow hat with the Barbie "B" on the front.

Is It Fun?

This lineup is so diverse, with different body types, skin tones, eye colors, and hairstyles to allow aspirational play for all girls. With such a wide variety of career dolls to choose from, there's something to interest and inspire every girl as she plays out different stories and adventures while also exploring what these different careers might be like. And, of course, they will also be fun for older fans to collect. 

Who It’s For

The Barbie 60th Anniversary Careers Dolls are for ages 3 and up, but we also think that the 60th anniversary labeling will make them fun for older fans to collect.
