Since 1959, one major figure has stood (at a statuesque 11.5 inches) as the ultimate example that you can do anything you put your mind to, and that there's no limit to the beauty of the world you create. Barbie has captivated the imagination of generations thanks to her abundant personal style, magnetic charm, and wide array of interests.
Barbie's legacy spans six decades, listing over 200 careers and professional highlights, including a trip to the moon that beat Neil Armstrong by four years. And all the while, she's never compromised her aesthetic sensibilities, insisting that she be taken seriously despite her glamour girl image.
I have always been deeply inspired by Barbie, especially her boundless curiosity and unapologetic zest for living well. So, in homage to this beloved cultural icon, I've curated an array of products showcasing her enduring influence on fashion, beauty, and design. "Imagination - life is your creation!"
Rise and shine, Barbie girl! You deserve to start your day with a touch of glamour! This silky dressing gown is the perfect thing to wrap up in first thing in the morning. It's a kimono-style robe featuring an open-front design, wide, elbow-length sleeves, and pockets. While it's available in 29 fun, vibrant colors and patterns, my choice, of course, is Barbie's signature pink.
Slip your feet into the fuzzy comfort of Comwarm's cross band slippers. Featuring a thick, waterproof, anti-skid EVA sole, these slides are perfect for padding around the house but are durable enough to wear while running errands. The faux-fur wrapped bands criss cross over your foot for a snug, secure fit, and there's even a little arch support in the insole for maximum comfort!
Frigidaire's darling, retro style, single serve coffee maker brews the perfect cup in just three minutes! Fill the included basket with your favorite coffee grounds, add water to the 14 ounce tank, and with the touch of a button, you're on your way to a great morning. It isn't intended for use with coffee pods, so not only does it produce way less waste, but it's more economical, too. And its compact design fits in even the smallest of kitchens. Plus, it's adorable! What's not to love?
I'm obsessed with Hay's brand of minimalism made fun with playful color combinations. These mugs are sure to bring a smile to your face every time you use them. Made of durable borosilicate glass, they're slightly rounded at the bowl, and the edge is pleasingly rimmed for an overall curvy, bubbly effect.
While you wait for your coffee to brew, cook up a yummy breakfast on this Greenlife nonstick griddle pan! From perfect pancakes to bacon and eggs, this durable nonstick pan made from recycled aluminum can handle all of your griddling needs. The scratch-resistant ceramic coating provides easy food release and quick cleanup, and the contoured soft-grip handle offers a comfortable hold. It's even dishwasher-safe and oven-safe up to 350 degrees!
Cook With Color's five-piece cooking utensil set includes a whisk, tongs, spoon, spatula, and scraper. This collection is made from BPA-free, food grade silicone that won't scratch your cooking surfaces and can withstand high temperatures. They're fashionable, functional, and they're easy to clean!
Every Barbie girl knows the importance of moving your body. Exercise improves your physical and mental health! But it doesn't hurt to look cute while you break a sweat, and for that I'd recommend the Qinsen workout set. Amazon reviewers can't get enough of how comfy and well-made this set is. The fabric is thick and slightly compressive, yet buttery soft. The four-way stretch is super forgiving, plus it's breathable and wicks away moisture. This set looks just as great on errand day as it does in the gym.
Add some light weights to your workout for an extra challenge... just make sure they match your 'fit. These three-pound dumbbells offer just a little bit of resistance to tone and strengthen, but not enough weight to build bulk. The neoprene coating provides grip while the hexagon-shaped head prevents the darn thing from rolling away.
This fun yoga mat from IUGA is made from SGS-certified eco-friendly materials, because for a Barbie, taking care of the planet is just as important as taking care of oneself. Made from an innovative material called TPE, this yoga mat is latex-free, contains no PVC, and is fully recyclable. It's lightweight, and both sides are textured to ensure a grippy surface for even the most vigorous Vinyasa. It's tear-resistant, flake-proof, and won't stretch out of shape, so this mat is built to last. Plus, it comes with a convenient matching carrying strap!
You've broken a sweat, so now it's time to wash up, Dollface! Neutrogena's Oil-Free Pink Grapefruit Acne Wash is a refreshing, dermatologist-recommended gel cleanser containing salicylic acid and vitamin C to clear existing breakouts and prevent new ones from happening. It thoroughly removes dirt, oil, and makeup without over-drying the skin. It's suitable for daily use but recommended for those with oily or acne-prone skin.
Making up your face is totally glam with a lighted vanity mirror like this one from Fenchilin. The twelve Hollywood-dressing-room-style LED globe bulbs are dimmable and last up to 5,000 hours. Plus, you can adjust the color temperature for a fully customizable experience. This mirror illuminates with the touch of a button and is even programmable to remember your favorite settings! With 360-degree free rotation and a detachable 10X magnification mirror, you'll have the perfect angle every time and be able apply your face with flawless results.
Remember Barbie's iconic pink hairbrush? Now there's a human-sized version! This wet brush is an official collab between Barbie and the geniuses over at Tangle Teezer, and it is the perfect tool to use on your crowning glory - in or just out of the shower. The patented two-tiered teeth gently detangle your locks even when sopping wet and can also be used to help distribute deep conditioning treatments. No pulling means less breakage, and that means a more beautiful mane.
Crimped hair is back, dolls! But this time, instead of the crunchy zig-zags of our youth, the look today is soft, sumptuous mermaid waves. Enter the Mermade Hair Pro Waver. This tool heats up super fast - up to 50% quicker than other hot styling tools - and the three 1.25" ionic ceramic barrels create gorgeous waves without damaging the hair shaft. It features an automatic shut-off function and comes with a hot glove, because there's nothing cute about getting burned.
Grace & Stella's TikTok viral under eye masks are designed to reduce dark circles, puffiness, under eye bags, and wrinkles. Vegan and cruelty-free, these gels soothe and nourish tired eyes on spa day or every day! They're infused with potent ingredients like hyaluronic acid, chondrus crispus powder, and horse chestnut to hydrate and rejuvenate the delicate under-eye area, leaving it refreshed and radiant. The box says it all: everything is better in pink!
I love Glossier's Ultralip lipstick. It's a Best-of-All-Worlds, super-hydrating, buildable lip color and "Lucite" is the perfect soft pink. It looks good on literally every skin tone! Made with a blend of meadowfoam, jojoba, and watermelon oils, Ultralip deeply nourishes the lips and leaves a slightly glossy, polished sheen. Pro-tip: dab a little on your cheeks for a healthy glow!
OPI's Barbie collection is an explosion of vibrant summer colors and sparkles galore. "Bon Voyage To Reality" is the tamest of these offerings, but a manicure in this nude pink crème hue would really go with any outfit, from your black striped poolside ensemble (see below) to a hot pink bespangled evening gown. Not quite Barbie enough on its own? Swipe your tips with a top coat of the glittery, iridescent "Every Night Is Girls Night" and kick up the fun factor!
Inspired by the OG Bathing Beauty herself, this Unique Vintage maillot is a faithful, full-sized reproduction of Barbie's most famous outfit! Featuring the iconic black and white chevron stripe pattern and a sweetheart neckline, the suit has removable straps that customize the look to your style. The built-in shelf bust and mesh tummy control keep you supported while you have fun, fun, fun in the sun. Available in size XS - 4XL!
This extra wide brim hat will help keep your skin safe from the sun's rays while simultaneously lending you an air of je ne sais quoi glam. It's made from a 25%/75% blend of polyester and paper, so it's lightweight, breathable, and durable, and it features an adjustable sizing tie for a perfect fit. Boasting an impressive UPF 50+ rating, this chic accessory block 98% of UVA and UVB rays, providing all day protection and timeless style.
Cat eye glasses are a Barbie girl's go-to shape for sunnies. This pair from Uniqlo are slightly oversized and feature UV400, fog-resistant lenses that protect your eyes not only from the sun, but also the strain of computer screens and smartphones!
Statement Sandal Alert! Sam Edelman's fun and funky Circus line has come through with your next favorite summer shoe. These fruit punch-colored kitten heels provide a vibrant pop of personality to your poolside look. With a cushioned insole and faux leather wrapped thong-style straps, the Skeet sandals are as easy-wearing as they are eye-catching. Honestly, I dare you to put these on and not strut.
Matching Statement Bag Alert! Get ready to turn some heads with this chic purse from WJCD. Keep all your essentials close at hand and easy to find. Made of transparent acrylic, it's design is sleek, trendy, and functional. It comes with a removable gold chain strap, so you can rock it as a crossbody or a clutch, whichever style your outfit requires. "Life in plastic - it's fantastic!"
When you get back from lounging by the pool, wouldn't it be nice to walk into your own pink palace? Upgrade your apartment to Dream House status with this sofa from Solonm. Measuring 80" across, it's the perfect size for smaller spaces while being roomy enough to comfortably seat three. With bubblegum pink teddy upholstery and two included matching pillows, this confection of a couch is soft, oh-so cozy, and ready to host your next Girls' Night.
Barbie has pursued hundreds of careers in her life, and the time she spent as an interior designer taught her that the right rug can really tie a room together. This collab with Ruggable features a striking art deco-style pattern in three toned-down shades of Barbie's signature pink, anchored on a soft, ivory background. It's a durable, low pile accent piece that's water and stain resistant and, as with all of Ruggable's offerings, entirely machine washable!
An acrylic coffee table is a fun way to add some dollhouse vibes to your home while still being modern, sophisticated, and grown up. I love the super simple design of this one from Goiooia. Assembly is a breeze: all you do is twist on the legs, and it's ready to wow! The sunken screws ensure a completely flat table top, one that can be wiped clean with just a damp cloth or sponge. Style it with a few beautiful coffee table books, yummy scented candles, and other decor, and get ready for the compliments to roll in.
Speaking of gorgeous coffee table books, this is one of my all-times faves. Slim Aarons was the Beautiful People's photographer, capturing the elegance and style of the rich and famous for decades, starting in the 1940s. Slim Aarons: Women is a collection of his portraits and candids of film stars, socialites, and royalty at home and at play, from Marilyn Monroe to Princess Grace, Imelda Marcos to baroness Terry von Pantz. His photographs reveal the colorful, kitschy dream worlds inhabited by the uber-fabulous of days gone by.
Want your house to smell like Barbie's Dream House? Now it can! This collaboration with Homesick Candle Co. offers the olfactory experience of one of pop culture's most legendary abodes. It's made from a premium soy wax blend free from paraben and synthetic dyes, and has a burn time of up to 80 hours. With top notes of rose and sweet peony uplifted by citrusy lemon zest and intoxicating jasmine, all on a bed of sandalwood and velvet, this is a candle that brings the freshest Malibu breeze to you, wherever you are.
Time for a costume change! The term "Barbiecore" normally conjures visions of hot pink bodycon dresses and impossibly high, spiked heels. But if Barbie has taught us anything, it's that she contains multitudes. This oversized cotton shirt dress is loose, light, and versatile enough to dress up for dinner or down for air travel. Keep it free-flowing for maximum comfort or cinch it at the waist with a statement belt. I think it's the ideal garment to wear hosting drinks at yours for all your girlfriends. Just pair with some fun shoes and sparkly earrings, and you're done!
And do shoes get more fun than these gold platforms? I think not! The Liya dress sandals from Nine West are high-shine and feature an open toe, adjustable ankle strap, and a block heel, so they're way more comfortable than they have any right to be. They're very Disco Barbie and, in my opinion, an absolute wardrobe staple.
These delicate earrings from Madewell will instantly elevate any outfit. They are gold-plated brass studs dripping with sweet little bows made from a combination of freshwater and acrylic pearls. When making this selection I was inspired by my own favorite childhood doll, Earring Magic Barbie, who taught me the power of accessorizing and that a little glimmer of gold goes a long way.
These adorable, vintage-style coupes from Glassique Cadeau are just begging to be filled with a round of adult beverages and shared with your dearest friends. The bowls of these handcrafted, dishwasher-safe glasses feature a darling, retro cut-glass design and a generous 12-ounce capacity, perfect for margaritas, spritzes, or frosé. This set of four comes tucked securely in flamingo pink satin in a box ready for gifting (even if the recipient is you). Cheers!
What could possibly be as iconic as Barbie's dreamy house? Her zippy pink car, of course! This decorative tray pays homage to B's hot wheels and Palm Springs vibes with a kitschy motif of flamingo pink Cadillacs, cocktails, palm trees and cacti, and casitas complete with breeze blocks. The high quality, glossy art print is set onto super durable, eco-friendly bamboo. Use it to serve up some tiki drinks and snacks or as a decor piece and catchall!
Victrola has seamlessly blended modern music technology with cute retro style with this three-speed Bluetooth record player. It's a belt-driven turntable capable of playing 45s, LPs, and 78s with best-yet sound quality. Vinyl collection a little light? Use the built-in Bluetooth speaker to bump some tunes right from your phone! Not only that, but there's even a line-input for CD players and an audio jack for private listening through headphones. And the whole thing is cased in an ultra-portable suitcase design so the dance party can travel with you anywhere you want to go.
At the end of a long day of being fabulous and blazing trails, it's time for a Barbie girl to get her beauty sleep. As soon as I laid eyes on this incredible bed frame from HIFIT, I knew it deserved a place on this list. Bubblegum pink? Check! Shell-shaped headboard fit for Mermaid Barbie? Check! A light feature that's totally uneccesary yet completely cool? Check! This upholstered bed is super sturdy and comes with wooden slats, eliminating the need for a box spring.
But the coolest thing is that LED light strip I mentioned. It's fully customizable with the included remote control or through the app. Choose one of the more than 20 presets or select your own color, make it dance to some music, and set the timer so it turns off as soon as you're away in Dreamland!
