Barbie® Spy Squad – Empowering Girls & Saving the Day
Sponsored by Barbie®. All opinions are my own.
My girls love to play spies. They sneak around, crouch behind furniture to learn important secrets, solve mysteries and save the day.
We’ve found that spy pretend-play products and storylines are usually directed at boys, but my girls have never let that stop them. We were so excited to find that Barbie® is changing that perspective with the new action-adventure Barbie® Spy Squad dolls, based on the new action adventure Barbie™ Spy Squad movie. In the movie, world-class gymnast Barbie and her friends are recruited to be secret agents. They must work together to stop a cat burglar in her tracks.
Both the movie and new Spy Squad dolls send a fun, empowering message to girls, as Barbie® saves the day through teamwork and the help of her action-packed gymnastics moves.
My girls cannot wait to see the movie for themselves, but until then they are acting out their own imaginative secret agent storylines with the new Barbie® Secret Agent Doll. She flips, twists and cartwheels around the house solving world problems as a super secret spy. I love watching my girls act out the empowering storyline of saving the day together. The teamwork theme is especially important to me, as I watch my four girls play and work together, rather than in competition with each other.
The Barbie® Spy Squad Doll is ready for any mission, quickly transforming from her hot pink trench coat into a sleek purple bodysuit with utility belt. According to my girls, Barbie’s utility belt contains any tool she might need to sneakily complete her spy mission.
Barbie® is ready to flip and cartwheel to stealthily spy through out our house…or for a quick escape. Just attach the G.L.I.S.S. spy gadget to her back to enable her to flip and cartwheel into action.
Barbie® doll’s new Spy Squad movie and products continue the theme of empowering girls to be anything they want to be—whether it’s a super secret spy, a gymnast or anything else in their dreams. #YouCanBeAnything is such a great message for girls of all ages!
Get the new Barbie® Spy Squad Dolls at Walmart, Target, Amazon and Toys “R” Us. Make sure to follow Barbie® on Twitter and Facebook.
That is really cute for girls. My boys are both SO into spy stuff!
I really like the spy outfit. It is super cute and fun. This would make for a great gift for my little sister.
That is a really cute toy – she looks like she is having a blast.
My daughter has a bunch of Barbies and they all always seem to be naked whenever I stumble across them so I wonder how important the clothes that the dolls actually come dressed in are. That being said she loves playing super heroes and spy with her brother and her favorite show is ODD SQUAD so this seems like a doll she’d probably adore.
I love that one of the outfits on this Barbie is painted on- no naked doll laying around!
This is such a fun barbie! I have an 8 year old daughter and she has never gotten into barbies, I was so obsessed with them growing up. I love the idea of having it be a superhero barbie for girls.
I love Barbie! The downside to being a boy of only boys is that we have no Barbies!
What fun. Barbie sure has come a long way from when I was a child. It is so cool seeing all the different faces of Barbie.
What a fun idea and a great way to encourage more creative play with a Barbie doll. Also, that little ‘model’ of yours is super cute.
This is on my daughter’s birthday list next month. She loves Barbie and cannot wait to see the Spy movie too!
Barbie is such a classic. I had them…may daughters had them…and I just know my granddaughter once she is old enough will have them too. Barbie has come a long way…and gets more fun all the time.
My daughter used to love spy shows and movies. She would have really liked playing with Barbie Spy Squad.
My girls are really into Barbie right now so it surprises me that we haven’t heard of this one already. I am going to have to see if I know something they don’t for a change!
I seriously love Barbie – they come out with the best ones. I have been a fan since I was little & so was my daughter – this one is great!
That is a really cute! She looks like she is having so much fun!!
What a great toy for little girls. My daughter is just getting into barbie
Your daughter looks like a little model. What fun with Barbie and I am glad to see this doll spanning the generations. She has come a long way.
This is awesome. It’s great to see Barbie saving the day rather than just changing clothes. So much more empowering and imaginative for girls!
I love the new Spy Squad Barbie dolls. They definitely give kids another way to use their imagination while playing.
Wonderful dolls! We don’t have any Barbies yet (just Disney Princesses) and we just used reward points to get Cars 2 which is very James Bond … I bet my girls would enjoy this Barbie!
How fun is this! I hope my future daughter loves Barbies as much as I did.
Oh man, I would have had fun with that back in the day. I loved my Barbies. 🙂
My daughter would absolutely flip over this Barbie. She loves playing superhero and spy with her brother. It sure doesn’t have to be all girly and princess!!
Wicked cute toy!
I wish the toy aisle wasn’t so crazily gendered of “boys” and “girls” toys. Boys can play with Baribies & girls can play with GI Joe!
How fun! Lily would love this!
Yes so true I wish they would start directing toys to both boys and girls. Because lets face it when I was a girl I loved climbing up trees and playing with Action Man.
I love that Barbie has spy-Barbie now!! What a fun way for your girls to play with spy characters that are girls!
Oh what an awesome Barbie. My daughter would love this doll!
I love watching kids play with their toys. It really makes me smile.
This is so cool! I love how many toys there are these days that help to empower girls to be more than just “pretty”!
It’s been so interesting to watch the changes Barbie has gone through over the years. I love it when the image is to empower girls.
I just remembered the sweet smell of a new Barbie toy from childhood and imagined how many I would buy when I have kids, pretending I’ve got the dolls for the kids. I hope I’ll have a daughter!
Your daughter looks so happy!
I love this! My daughter has been telling me for the past several months that she plans to be a spy with her cover job as a turtle biologist, so this would be perfect for her 🙂 I especially love the pink hair!
My daughter would absolutely love this! She just turned 4 and has become obsessed with Barbies…but at the same time, she is always playing with my 5 yr old nephew so naturally, action/adventure/super heroes, etc. has also become part of her.
Oh my word. These look amazing! My daughter would absolutely love these dolls. We will have to look into them!
Barbie is such a classic toy. I love her spy clothes! It looks like your girls had a lot of fun playing with Barbie.
Oh I LOVE the way Barbie is stepping up and changing their products to be more relate-able. It’s great to see big companies creating products for EVERY kind of boy/girl!
I just love that Barbie is timeless! I loved Barbie as a child, I am no spring chicken! This is a great Spy Barbie! I am going to get this for my nieces Easter Basket, she will loved this!
My girls love Barbie and they love spy stuff. So, these are right up their alley!
I always loved Barbie as a child. My daughter never played with dolls, she wanted to be just like her dad and play sports.
