Embark On An Oceanic Adventure With The New Barbie Marine Biologist.
Rediscovering the magic of childhood through my incredible children. Last week the kids and I had the honor to attend the launch of Barbie Marine Biologist Dolls in partnership with uShaka Marine World, in Durban. The event was so informative and in my daughter’s words “It was so fun”. The was a presentation by Devona Chetty whose a Marine Biologist at uShaka Marine World, she shared a bit of what she studied and what her job entails, we also had a tour behind the scenes at uShaka and learned more about the inner workings of the oceanarium and explored the wonders of the ocean.

Barbie has always been an iconic figure, inspiring young minds to dream big and pursue their passions. Now, Barbie is diving into a new adventure as a Marine biologist!

Design: The attention to detail in the design of the Barbie Marine Biologist Dolls is just commendable. The dolls are dressed in a swimsuit and a swim vest, ready to dive into the ocean.

Barbie Marine Biologist is an exciting addition to the Barbie lineup, Here are 3 Things I Love About This Playset
Let Kid’s Imaginations Run Free.
The playset comes with a mobile lab with storage and wheels, allowing kids to carry Barbie and her accessories around, sparking endless imaginative play scenarios. With this playset, children can learn about marine life, conduct their own experiments, and develop a curiosity for the wonders of the ocean. My kids have recreated so many hands-on, fun adventures with mobile lab, in their minds – they have been to the ocean, testing and monitoring a dolphin that was exposed to pollutants, and treated it.
Promotes Diversity and Inclusion
Over the years, Barbie has made major efforts in encouraging diversity and inclusiveness, and the Marine Biologist Dolls carry on this tradition as well. The dolls are available in 2 different skin tones and facial features. I love that this inclusivity not only mirrors the world around us, a world of diverse Marine Biologists but it also helps children to find a doll that resonates with them, a doll that encourages them that they can be anything through a range of careers traditionally held by men no matter their skin tone.
Raises Awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations.
On the 8th of June, I was educating my kids about the importance of taking care of the ocean, how the ocean generates most of the oxygen we breathe, regulates our climate, feeds us, and more. I love how the Barbie Marine Biologist Dolls raise awareness of the need to protect Earth’s natural resources for future generations.
With their diverse representation and inspiring role model, the Barbie Marine Biologist Dolls are a fantastic addition to the Barbie collection, making a splash in the world of toys that inspire and educate. To find out more about Barbie Marine Biologist visit Mattel
