Computer Engineer Barbie Unveiled

Toys 4

ideonexus writes "At the New York Toy fair, Mattel has announced Computer Engineer Barbie, the doll's 126th career chosen by popular vote. The official announcement (PDF) shows her accessorizing with nerdy glasses, a Bluetooth earpiece, pink laptop, and tee covered in binary digits. The girls-only vote choose 'News Anchor Barbie,' which became Barbie's 125th career, but Mattel decided to add the Computer Engineer version after a viral outpouring of support from female IT professionals."

They should have gone all in with this one and done Computer Hacker Barbie instead... A black tee shirt that says "1337 h4x0rz pwn j00!", some tatts, purple hair, and black converse hi tops. Keep the nerd glasses though...
