Well, this is a bit embarrassing but back in the day I did own a few Barbies. OKAY! Fine, I’ve own quite a handful of these dolls! And most of them were princesses, ballerinas, etc. In the age of technology, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see them come up with an Engineer Barbie. Turns out you can actually vote for the next career choice for Barbie — & this was one of the choices that had the most votes. The other is a News Anchor. No offense but when I think of a female Computer Engineer, this image doesn’t really come into mind but I suppose it does help inspire little girls. Yet, I can’t help to criticize. She’ll be hitting the shelves in Christmas 2010.
What do you think?
