Mattel Launches Barbie Women in Film Collection

Mattel has dropped the newest collection of Barbie! More than 250 professions strong, Barbie’s Career of the Year collection for 2024 celebrates Women in Film. According to the Mattel website, the collection includes a Studio Executive, Director, Cinematographer, and Movie Star.

With the massive success of Margot Robbie starrer “Barbie,” the Women in Film collection is perfectly fitting for 2024. As per Fox News, the brand came up with the idea after Greta Gerwig’s film became a blockbuster hit, making her the first-ever female director with a billion-dollar movie.

For 2023, Mattel went with the Women in Sports for Barbie’s Career of the Year collection. It came with a General Manager, Coach, Referee, and Sports Reporter (via Variety).
