I am loving the new website Mattel has put together for Barbie's 50th birthday, Barbie Media
They have included a fun page showcasing Barbie's "careers" over the past 50 years. These are pictures of a few of my favorites.

Nurse Barbie in 1961

By 1973 she had become Surgeon Barbie!
(possibly related to the fact that in 1963 she was College Graduate Barbie)

1981 Roller Skater Barbie...A career detour perhaps?

A serious turn as an Army Ranger in 1993. Seriously unfashionable. Well, her Red Beret is fabulous but that is about it!

A Red Hairdo helps her look sharp in her new job as a Movie Producer...Make deals Barbie!

One of my recent favorites, TV Chef Barbie!

There are even more fun Babrie careers listed at BarbieMedia.Com
