Barbie debuts new judge dolls, hopes to inspire young girls with career choice


(WTHR) – Barbie is debuting new dolls in hopes of inspiring young girls with a new career choice.

Mattel is introducing Judge Barbie, complete with a black robe and tiny gavel. Judge Barbie also comes in four different skin tones and hairstyles.

The new Barbie is part of the "Career of the Year" line.

It’s part of an effort by Barbie and GoFundMe to “close the Dream Gap” between men and women through donations to various charities and inspiration through play.

Last year, Barbie partnered with Tynker to create a robotics engineer doll for its “Career of the Year” line.

The Judge Barbie doll is available at retailers for $12.99.
