Since they first landed on store shelves in 1959, Barbies have been a toy box staple. Over the past 64 years, Mattel has sold more than one billion dolls, making Barbie the company’s largest and most profitable line. 

The brand has now expanded into a multimedia franchise, with video games, animated films, streaming shorts, and for the first time this summer, a live-action film. To celebrate the release of “Barbie,” a comedy film starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, we found the most “Wisconsin” dolls on the market:

Basketball Barbie

Watch out, Giannis! This made-to-move doll has 22 “joints” and an incredible range of motion. Barbie comes dressed to compete, with a pink and blue uniform and her own basketball.

Politician Barbie

Released ahead of the 2020 election, this doll is still available and inspiring to young girls with political ambitions. Barbie’s had 200 careers over the years, so she’s more than qualified for any position! 


Chicken Farmer Barbie

There’s no hiding Barbie’s rural pride in her “Live, Love, Farm” t-shirt. The set comes with the doll, a chicken coop, three chickens, two chicks, one basket, and a tray of eggs.


Orchard Farmer Barbie

This doll is ready for summer harvest season, or a weekend trip to her local farmers’ market, with a pail of fresh corn and apples. (11 additional farm animals and barn are sold separately.)
