WIN with Ackermans & We are BARBIE!

by | Nov 6, 2020 | Fashion for Kids, Giveaways, What we wear | 65 comments

Barbie has continued to evolve over the years to better reflect the world girls see today, adding more diversity for endless storytelling possibilities. The Fashionistas are the most inclusive doll line with 176 dolls, 9 body types, 35 skin tones and 94 hairstyles.

Just like the little girls (and boys) playing with them, each Barbie Fashionista has his / her own look and style – from casually cool to boho-bold, all fashions are inspired by the latest trends!

And things just got even better…

Ackermans clothing recently launched their new “We are… Barbie!” collection for summer.

Ackermans Barbie Fshionistas

It’s never been more important for little girls to see themselves reflected in the clothing they wear while also celebrating uniqueness, inclusivity and the beauty of diversity. It’s about seeing YOURSELF being represented by a brand you love.

More skin tones!⁣
More body types!⁣
More unique looks!⁣

And they got it right!

There’s something for everyone.

    Our little 4 year old broke her arm this past week so she is very sad that we had to cancel our getaway to dié eiland in Limpopo as she is in a cast for 6weeks. She loves the magneta Barbie swimsuit and I’d love to get it for her along with some super cute dresses to make “cast and sling wearing” a bit more bearable…

    I have 3 daughters aged 4 and 2 years old and the youngest is 2 months old. My older two absolutely adore Barbie. I’d love to see them in the pink dress with the Barbie font on it… They would look so adorable. It’s difficult to choose a favourite but I’d love to see them wearing that particular outfit.
