Okay, this is pretty awesome. I’ve made no secret about my feelings on Barbie. Not a fan, but I do recognize that many love her. And hey, she was an astronaut. A new commercial for the doll is out and for the first time in history, it features a boy. Moschino Barbie is a new collaboration between the Italian luxury clothing line and Barbie. This is a limited edition of the doll sold at Net-a-Porter for $150, but sold out in around an hour. The dolls are appearing on eBay for far more now.
Male Barbie fans are over the moon and I’m right there with them. Whatever my personal feelings about the toy, it’s wonderful to see an inclusive ad. Plus, this kid! Seriously, this kid! He’s amazing! His hair!
Okay, so the ad itself is stupid. Personal tastes, you know. That said, it’s pretty awesome to see how happy this kid is. Rock on, little sir.
