Barbie – the girl can not make up her mind! Just kidding 😉 Mattel recently announced career move #125 (News Anchor) and #126 (Computer Engineer) and unveiled the new dolls at the NY Toy Fair.

At the Toy Fair Mattel had a display showing 96 career minded Barbies – that would have been a great display to see up close. Here is a photo of the display from far enough back to get it all in from Michael Williams/mawphoto.com for Haute Doll Magazine/hautedoll.com.

You can see over 100 photos taken by Michael at this year’s Toy Fair at mawphoto.com.

So what other careers has Barbie had?
