The wonderful world of Barbie dolls just got a little more judicious.
Mattel, the company that makes the famous children's toy, is set to announce Barbie's new career as a judge any day now, and we believe this may be Barbie's first foray into the judiciary.
The 2019 "Career of the Year" Barbie is now available online for $12.97. She comes with a black robe, a gavel and block, and a doll-sized jabot that was likely inspired by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of the modern leaders for women's rights in America, who wears a signature "dissent" collar to show the world how she really feels about a particular decision.
Judge Barbie, which comes in four different skin tones with four different hairstyles, could help young girls imagine themselves in the legal field at an early age.
As it stands, women represent just 38 percent of jobs in the legal profession in the United States. Here's how Her Honor is described:
Barbie Judge dolls inspire girls to imagine everything they can become — like protecting the rights of others and ruling on legal cases! She wears an authentic career outfit with black robe and comes with a gavel and block to play out all kinds of stories. Kids will love being the judge, and there are so many stories to 'hear' and tell as they explore a career in the courtroom and create their own justice with Barbie Judge doll.
