Is your kid obsessed with Barbie? Now they can jump inside a book with Barbie and her friends, thanks to the clever folks at Dinkleboo, a custom printing and gifting company. In a new licensing deal with Mattel, Inc., Dinkleboo will offer six new fully customizable Barbie books, giving your child a chance to be a part of an engaging story right alongside Barbie. The perfect gift for the holiday season (and all year long, for that matter), the books will immerse children in the literary and artful experience of becoming scientists, fashion designers, filmmakers, chefs, ballerinas and equestrians. Highlighting STEAM skills, each story line encourages kids to dream big, to believe in themselves, and to share an inside look at exciting future career options.
To make this book your child's own, you'll choose from numerous personalized options, including five hair colors, four skin tones, three eye colors, as well as eye and body shapes to capture your child’s physical features. My Barbie-loving daughter is just going to love reading her name and finding herself within the pages of You Can Be a Horse Rider.
While Mattel co-founder and Barbie inventor, Ruth Handler, may never have dreamed that Barbie would inspire and bring joy to so many children since the iconic doll's creation 60 years ago, I think she would be quite proud. Handler once said, "My whole philosophy of Barbie was that, through the doll, the little girl could be anything she wanted to be. Barbie always represented the fact that a woman has choices." And in this new series from Dinkleboo, the Barbie legacy lives on.
