Barbie is a Computer Engineer

Mattel recently announced Barbie’s 126th career: Computer Engineer.  Apparently, Mattel asked Barbie fans to help pick Barbie’s 125th career (News Anchor), but so many people wanted her to be a Computer Engineer that Mattel decided to introduce two new careers.  As a female computer science student, I am thrilled to hear the news!  I haven’t bought a Barbie doll in over a decade, but I might just have to get this one.  You can read more about Computer Engineer Barbie on all sorts of blogs around the internet (such as Chip Chic and NYTimes Bits) and on Barbie’s official media website.  (Image below from PC World.)
