Well, that time has come. I am going to write about Barbie but this is a special campaign I am happy be a part of. Barbie #YouCanBeAnything. I loved Barbie when I was a little girl. My mom and I would go to Eatons, I would head up to the toy department and stare at all the new Barbies. I loved Valentine Barbie, her red velvet dress with little red velvet hearts on white chiffon. I can’t believe I still remember her but that dress! I loved it and had to have it. I loved textiles and design even as a child and dreamed of being a fashion designer. I loved all the dresses that special collection dolls from Barbies. I loved the detail and I am excited to tell you about the #YouCanBeAnything campaign with Barbie and you’ll have a chance to win too!
The best thing about play is our imagination. It grows our brain. From thinking to language skills to our social and emotional skills. We dream and imagine and Barbie has been there for many where they can play and imagine themselves as a Princess, a Doctor, a Veterinarian, even a Navy officer as Barbie was one in 1991. If you like Barbie, take a trip down memory lane on their Instagram .
I know when I was a little girl I also wanted to be an archeologist, a marine geologist, a buyer, a model and a mom. I still dream of fashion and I still dream of new careers as an adult. There are so many things I still want to do and since motherhood has taken over a love for cooking has evolved. We’ll see 😉 I love that Barbie is taking a different initiative to encourage young girls to dream big and pursue their dreams. Will pretend play become a reality? With over 155 careers and counting, there isn’t a plastic ceiling Barbie hasn’t broken. From Mermaid to Movie Star, Pet Vet to Police Officer, Fashionista to Fairy Princess, there are countless choices for your little ones to let their imagination soar. There’s no such thing as too wild a dream, too big a hope or too fantastic a wish when it comes to Barbie.
How are you encouraging your children to be anything? Be sure to comment below! I love how Barbie is putting these girls out in their chosen careers for this video. Have a watch it’s really sweet.
