No other doll has sparked as much conversation as Barbie.

But maybe kids don’t see Barbie the way adults do? We are excited to begin this #BarbieProject journey and invite you to share what you see, hear and feel when you watch your kids play with Barbie.

Mom: “Is it ok that he plays with you? Do you have a good time with him?”

LL: “Yes mama, I like when brother plays with me and Barbie”

Adorable kitten or doll-eating lion? Amelia’s Barbie dolls didn’t see it coming.

Pigtail Pals Ballcap Buddies asks: Do kids ever surprise you with the stories they tell when they play with toys?                                                          

Has it shifted your perception of who the kids are and what things they are interested in?

You know [your Barbie doll is] missing a shoe?” Ella questioned.

Ry: “Yeah, I know, but she has both socks and a ball and a trophy.”

Ella: “Cool” (then she pulled out a doll from her back which was donning a bathing suit and surfer shorts) “I’m her. She’s my favorite,” she said, staking her claim.

Ry: “You know she’s missing an arm?” (asked in the same tone as the missing shoe comment, but as if it was clearly a bigger deal.)

Ella: “Duh! She’s Bethany Hamilton from Soul Surfer.”

[…]Over the next few minutes I heard Ella explain how amazing Bethany is and why she’s her idol. How she overcame this awful accident and learned a new way to rise to the top of her sport. I heard how she almost gave up, but didn’t and how she pulled the arm of a Barbie. She explained that no one should ever tell you that you CAN’T do anything and if they do… you shouldn’t believe them.
