For me, working with the incredibly talented and enthusiastic Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders holds special significance, said Mattel Designer, Robert Best. I grew up seeing them on television and was impressed with their determination, precision, beauty and poise. It was an honor and personal dream come true designing the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Barbie dolls and I know that fans around the world are going to cheer for them.
Here’s what they won’t tell little girls: Cheerleader Barbie may have glitz, but she’ll make less than she would slinging burgers. No minimum wage. No hourly rate. Maybe, if she’s lucky, she’ll get a few paying gigs to smile, mingle and keep her opinions to herself.
This comes a year after featured Barbie cheerleaders from Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas and LSU. Do, say, Oregon fans not want to buy cheerleader Barbies? Or, more accurately, do Barbie collectors from Oregon not want to buy cheerleader dolls?
Cheerleader Barbie - I've never seen a cheerleader Barbie, but I love it!! This is listed as "Barbie University of Alabama Caucasian Cheerleader Doll." This is now on my wish list. -LRE
