Whether it’s space exploration, modeling the latest couture, or performing complicated surgeries, Barbie really has done it all. Cherished around the world by children and adults for more than 60 years, this hot-pink icon has reinvented herself for each new generation, spurring a range of global Barbies and Kens, all with their own styles, skills, and dreams. And with the Barbie movie’s launch, the doll’s popularity has exploded.

Whether you love hot pink or think hot pink is just OK, our comprehensive gift guide will have you covered. And, much like Barbie herself, we like to keep things current, so we’ll be updating this guide depending on product availability and when new, notable items have hit the market. So keep checking in for all things Barbie Land!
