IT WASN'T UNTIL the eagle-eyed Peter Curran presented his findings on The Inevitable topic of interacting that I was aware of how Barbie Vlogs could brighten our sitting room through its mantra of "positive attitude changes everything". Although I will admit that nobody in our home is the target audience of this virtual host.
I love these vlogs. They are so adorable and show more of the affectionate, fun relationship Barbie has with her sisters. She incorporates things that real vloggers would, challenges, lifestyle videos, conversations about how to have a growth mindset and face hard things with good attitudes. I have three daughters, and this Barbie is so relevant, kind, fun, and personable, I have no problem with them watching these. I love her constant optimism, her great faith in humanity, her admirable, platonic friendship with Ken, her involvement of her younger siblings, and her positive messages to her “viewers.” Whoever created this new Barbie is fantastic and should make more things. I never thought I would like Barbie so much!
There's much much more in the realm of emerging technology--as you would learn by listening to Peter Curran explain on Spotify.
