Mattel Has Come Out with a Game Developer Barbie!

Hey everyone!

Barbie® Careers Game Developer Doll -

Mattel has come out with a new Game Developer Barbie doll!

In 2010, Mattel came out with a Computer Engineer Barbie. In the book Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer, Barbie was very bad at computer engineering and needed boys to help her game design and take a virus off both Barbie's and Skipper's, her younger sister, computers. 

An outrage of disappointment broke out over this book, especially among the women in technology fields.

Computer Engineer Barbie is no longer available. They now have Game Developer Barbie!

Here is Mattel's description of Game Developer Barbie:

Honored as a career of the year, young techies can play out the creative fun of this exciting profession.
Barbie® doll looks casually cool in an industry-inspired outfit.
Her t-shirt breaks the fashion code with a hip graphic; faded denim pants are tech trendy; a green jacket is fashion-forward with sleeves rolled up; and white sneakers. 
Vibrant red hair and bright matching glasses complete the authentic look.
A laptop (with real game code graphics), tablet (with the game she is working on) and silvery headset expand the storytelling possibilities and career opportunities.
Inspire young gamers with this doll who is at the top of her game!
  • Open young techies to the world of game development with the Barbie® game developer doll!
  • She wears an industry-inspired outfit with graphic decal t-shirt, faded denim pants, a dark green jacket and white sneakers.
  • Bright red hair and eyeglasses are fashion-forward with techie style!
  • Accessories -- a laptop, a tablet with picture of a game showing and a headset -- expand the career exploration and storytelling fun.

She sounds pretty cool! If I still collected Barbies, I would totally have to have her!

Mattel isn't only Barbie, but is also American Girl. My thought was that maybe they will make a geek Girl of The Year doll! Wouldn't that be awesome! The GOTY's are supposed to be the modern day dolls, and I think they have had plenty of repetitive themes. There has been 3 island dolls and 3 dance/gymnastics dolls. A lot of girls these days are into geeky things such as game designing, code, blog designing, and many more!

If they come out with a geek GOTY doll, I told my mom that I need her whole collection! 

What do you think about a GOTY geek doll?
