Behind The Big Hair & Sparkling Dresses of Barbie - The 52 Years of Positive Influence for Young Girls


I adored Barbie since I was a kid! I loved dressing them in sparkling gowns and big puffy skirts. But behind all that blond hairs, perfect Malibu tan & beautiful couture dresses of Barbie, there is a very powerful message that sends a positive influence to young girls all over the world “We girls can do anything! just like Barbie!", no dream is too big & nothing and no one can stop you to reach for your dream!



My very first Barbie was the "Crystal Fantasy Barbie". My Barbies had boxes brimming with tulle tutus, stylish suits, and pretty-in-pink dresses. Also her shinny blonde hair that I can came up with thousands of ways to style her hair, what a great memories it was!






I know many people complains about "Oh Barbie is too thin, makes little girl have self image issues..." but to me, they were fashionable, strong independent women who can do and be anything she wanted! Which I think it has bring lots of positive influence to young girls to role play on their dreams and knowing that she can be a Doctor, Rock Star or even an Astronaut! Nothing can stop her to be who she wants to be just like Barbie!

When my "Presidential Barbie" ran for President, nobody wondered if the world was ready for a female in the White House (Maybe that's why I wanted Hillary to win the white house in this past presidential election LOL).



My CEO Barbie was never paid less than her male counterparts.


My Artist Barbie is always full of inspirations and artistic ideas


I never wondered how my Doctor Barbie conquered work and still find time to date George Clooney in the ER room haha!!

This past march of 2011, Barbie turned 52 and she still look fabulous as usual! You know, after all of Barbie's trailblazing and triumphs, she no doubt deserves such a grand jubilee.
