Barbie, More Than a Toy


Without a doubt, there has never been a child's toy any more iconic than, Barbie.

She has certainly evolved through many iterations and style changes over her long existence, all the while keeping her girlish good looks and movie star like figure. As a young girl playing dress-up for hours on end with both her and her very handsome boyfriend Ken, I was entertained and inspired into making some of the life choices that have molded me into the woman and mother I am today.

The Barbie brand in itself has evolved into additional spinoff siblings such as her cute little sisters, Kelly, Stacie and Skipper. They have added several other siblings since her release in 1959, some of which were even renamed.

Barbie isn't just about fashion and girlie accessories-it's also about imagination, creativity and the importance of play. She is so much more than just a doll. When girls play with fashion, they accessorize more than just their dolls wardrobe... a new outfit change may represent a mindful change in career aspirations. Barbie has always been about experimentation and being something you are not. With the success of Barbie's movie career, she has been everything from a mermaid to fairy princess to fashion designer in Paris, France. All designed to add to the inspiration of the children who play with her.

If you have ever watched your little girls play Barbie, you are well aware of the way she has inspired their imagination and made play time so much more fun.

Barbie has this innate ability to take you away to anywhere you want to go, and for that matter who you want to be.

The makers of Barbie are about to promote, the "See What Happens When you Save With Barbie" blog tour. Obviously designed to bring further awareness to the iconic Barbie brand, but also to inspire a newer, younger generation of Barbie fans.

They will be posting within the community every Tuesday and Thursday opportunities for purchases made at reduced rates. I mean, who doesn't love to save money? As a parent to 4 young girls, I am always on the lookout for a deal. You can follow along on WonderMoms.ca for information and we will reveal new promos as they become available throughout the program.
