She has tan skin, brown eyes, light peach lips, brunette hair with red streaks in the front. She wears glasses and a headset and carries a tablet (by way of a pincher grip on one of her fingers.) She has one straight arm, one bent arm, the new flat style feet, and hollow legs. She also comes with a notebook computer.
The back of the box is a perfect foil for her look (I especially love the action figures especially He-Man.) The only problem is that you have to pretty much destroy the box to get the doll out – unless you have incredible patience. As I don't, I gave the box to my husband and he carefully cut away the plastic to give me the back in its totality.
I used to customize Barbie dolls for my daughters – the whole nine yards. I would re-root their hair, wipe off their faces and re-do their makeup, give them real eyelashes, boil and remold their arms and legs. I also would create and sew custom fashions for them. All of this was in aid of trying to create either more realistic looking dolls that they could relate to or to create outrageous fantasy dolls for them to use to spark their imaginations. Of course, it helped that I lived a few miles from Mattel corporate offices and could buy their damaged box dolls very inexpensively.
While I wasn't looking over the last decade or so, Mattel has stepped up their game. Game Developer Barbie is exactly the type of doll I would have had to create – and here it is already made beautifully and at a reasonable price.
Now I am looking at Barbies for my grandchildren, especially my new granddaughter. I will certainly be picking up another of these dolls for her toy closet but this one is for me to play with and keep by my office desk as, except for the eye color, it reminds me way too much of myself a few years ago. I will certainly start customizing dolls again for her use but it won't be as difficult to do as the dolls, such as this one, are great as-is.
I've never collected dolls, but this one doesn't Dissapoint. The hair looks different than the picture though, it's more of a brunette with pink streaks, still looks nice though. The clothes do look s little cheap in my opinion compared to Barbie clothes from 20 years ago or so which is why I deducted a star. Other than that the whole presentation with her box is something to look at.
I'm sorry, what's that supposed to mean? Meet my expectations BECAUSE SHE'S A WOMAN, Amazon? IS THAT IT??
I'll have you know Barbie turns in consistently clean code that's beautifully commented and optimized while at the same time legible and easy to understand for the other engineers on the development team. She always over-delivers, is always on time and always has a great attitude
She's a real asset to the team and your sexist attitude has no place in our organization nor our modern society. It's 2016, not 1816!!! Women in Games International will be hearing about this
Also, packaging is really clever with lots of fun visual gags and her tiny little iPad is adorable
I do really like the jacket and the shirt would be cute if it had been printed on clearer to read the design more easily. The pants are cheap faux-blue jean and the shoes are flats- I do like being able to have more flats.
I will say the face on this doll is very pretty- though those cheekbones look more like she should be strutting down a runway rather than sitting in front of a glowing computer screen all day (I kid- coding is cool).
My last observation is that according to the displays that come on her laptop and iPad, it looks like Barbie is developing one of those horrible casual games that makes you pay real money for stuff like power-ups and lives. Bad Game Developer Barbie, bad!
