Computer Engineer Barbie - YES!

Barbie has had many gigs in the past, many stereotypical. But this year she gets an upgrade to computer engineer. Mattel rolled out 'Computer Engineer Barbie’ at the NYC Toy Fair Friday. The choice came from a voter poll and is Barbie’s 126th career.

And, in style, Barbie totes pink glasses, a binary tee shirt, Bluetooth earpiece and what appears to be a pink netbook. Society of Women Engineers along with the National Academy of Engineering worked with designers making sure it was a true fit. Rumor has it she’s big into Ubuntu and can code in 5 languages. Due in stores this fall.
