Tokyo 2020 Sport Climbing Barbie


Because life is fantastic when you’re made of plastic, the new Sport Climbing Barbie doll is the perfect model for young aspiring climbers. Complete with bowling shoes a belay biner that doesn’t close, Barbie shows great belay technique and gear placement. Don’t forget to clip your draws to your leg loops for an optimal set-up, especially when you’re climbing in the gym on routes with pre-hung draws. If your child is looking for a Sport Climbing friend, then Come On Barbie Let’s go Barbie!

All jokes aside, it’s great that young kids have a diverse range of models to look up to! Thanks to Mattel for including climbing!

    Leave Barbie alone. She’s an astronaut and doctor. She can do whatever the hell she wants.

    Yeah, I’d hate to give girls the option for a toy made for them that represents varied interests too… glad we make sure they only have princess and pregnant barbies so they don’t get the wrong idea about what they can achieve.
