Pink Pander: From High Heels To Frozen Yoghurt, Here Are The Many, Many Barbie Movie Collaborations


Pink carpets, pink ice cream, pink outfits—Barbie has unrivalled style, from her dream home to her dream closet. We are undoubtedly living in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie world. There’s no denying the world’s favourite doll’s stardom, and Margot Robbie is painting the town pink with her press tour looks. Barbie is not just an iconic brand or a toy that has ruled the charts for six decades; she is also one of the biggest influencers in marketing. The original doll itself has various merchandise coming out every year, be it books, stationery, or clothing.

So, when the pink-wave started with a selfie generator, it was very much expected that Warner Bros. would leave no stone untouched while promoting this movie, but low-key, no one expected this pink tornado (as this specific shade itself the brand’s biggest identity) everywhere. This doll in general occupies a special place in the parent company, Mattel’s heart and the shelves of consumers, with an astounding 76 million dolls sold annually worldwide; that’s like 100 dolls every minute.

One might wonder, what’s the hype with this blonde doll everywhere? The movie trailer answered with the tagline of, “If you love Barbie, this movie is for you. If you hate Barbie, this movie is for you.” Which can be said for their marketing as well.

So, if you want to know the deal with this multi-starrer movie marketing, scroll down to see some of our favourite brand collaborations so far:

1. Xbox

This is not the first time these two brands have come up with something together. Back in 1995, GAP and Barbie produced a red logo outfit for the doll.

The collection will hit stores and online on July 21.
