Barbie traveled to New York City today to make a big announcement about her next career move. Introducing the 2012 Barbie I Can Be…President Doll! Barbie for President!
Barbie® will hit the campaign trail with a full-scale “glam-paign” alongside her longtime political advisor – The White House Project®. With a designer pink power suit and a new Tumblr blog, Barbie® stands on her own (literally) as this campaign’s sole female candidate.
A true fashionista both on and off the campaign trail, Barbie® keeps her political style classic and sophisticated, wearing a pink skirt suit with red, white and blue trim, designed by Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) award-winning designer, Chris Benz.
Barbie knows how important it is to stay connected with the people when you are running for office, so she is launching her official Instagram and Tumblr channels. Her blog is Barbie2012.com.
Barbie’s younger fans will be able to learn more about leadership and Barbie’s candidacy at www.barbie.com.
Barbie® I Can Be…™ President doll will be available beginning April 5th for pre-orders at www.mattelshop.com and will be available this summer at retailers nationwide in Caucasian, African American, Hispanic and Asian ethnicities.
