I never thought anything so determinedly pink would make it onto this blog, and I certainly never thought I’d post about Barbie here, but I just can’t resist. Barbie Architect is the latest addition to Mattel’s Barbie I Can Be line of career-oriented plastic dolls.

Despite the high heeled boots, which could make walking on scaffolding a little tricky, Barbie Architect is touted as being “ready to tackle the daily responsibilities of a real architect in or out of the office..”. Her clean-lined symmetrical outfit complete with city skyline makes her more or less look the part, although it’s the big serious specs that really are the clincher here. Let’s just avoid thinking of the pink monstrosity she’s working on in CAD.
