"Barbie portraying Barbie, she is not only an effervescent memory of childhood but an icon of beauty, a symbol of glamour, and a role model," it said.
"Each set evokes empowerment - no matter the dresses Barbie wears or what role she portrays. 'You can be anything!' Barbie believes that if you set your heart into something and work hard for it, the fantasy will become a reality; the lioness in you will roar with courage, and you will celebrate life to the fullest," it added.
