If you want to inspire your little one to get interested in photography, you may consider this new Barbie: a National Geographic photojournalist. In collaboration with NatGeo, Mattel has introduced a series of career dolls, and this one will certainly thrill the photographer and the inner kid in all of us.

The photojournalist Barbie is dressed for the field in a pair of brown pants, Tan boots and a top detailed with a vest, NatGeo badge and a pocket. Along with the doll, there’s also, of course, a camera. I don’t know what model it could be, you be the judge:

The kit also includes a lion cub, because the NatGeo photographer has gotta have a subject to photograph, right? And there’s also a copy of a National Geographic magazine to round up the concept.

This photojournalist Barbie is only one doll from the series of Mattel’s career dolls. There are also Barbie Polar Marine Biologist, Barbie Wildlife Conservationist, and Barbie Astrophysicist, to name a few. All of them are made for kids from three to seven years of age, but I guess older kids can find them fun as well.

All these career dolls, including the photojournalist Barbie, are made for kids who are “curious about the world, nature and science.” Their goal is “to encourage imagination, expression and discovery through play” and to “inspire kids to dream.”

You can buy the photojournalist Barbie on Amazon for $15, but I guess you can easily found one in toy stores as well. I hope that it will inspire your kid to pick up a camera and get interested in photography, wildlife, or both. And who knows, maybe someday he or she will indeed have their photos published in National Geographic. : )

    So she must be a biologist too ’cause they are the only “photographers” that seem to get wildlife photos in Nat Geo. Maybe she’s more in exploiting people category like Steve “photoshop” McCurry?

    Is this the unknown gender barbie or is it actually a she? Does she/he/it complain about gender or lack of gender equity? So many questions!!! So much confusion!

    I don’t see why there be an age range…. Just say 3+…. In this day and age can one smart person in marketing see that not only kids buy toys?

      Lego says 4-99. I always felt bad for those 100+ trying to play Legos.

    How the heck is she going to snap a photo with her finger stuck through the strap? What about her other hand supporting that heavy lens. She’s not shooting selfies!
