Barbie President and Vice-President 2016

doll set

Mattel first produced a Presidential candidate Barbie in 1992; for 2016, Mattel offered a female ticket for U.S. President and Vice-President, featuring a Latina as the vice-presidential candidate. The back of the doll set packaging imparts some civics education as well as inspiration, asking doll owners: "Did you know? The President and vice President are elected leaders who run our country. Some of the topics the focus on are health, economics, the environment and the safety of our nation. . . . Nowadays, there are more women running for public office at all levels & inspiring others to do the same. Are you interested in making the world a better place? You could be president or vice-president, one day too, just like Barbie doll!" The Barbie packaging also informs doll owners about "She Should Run," an organization founded in 2011 to encourage more women to seek elected office at all levels.
