Celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the Dolls of the World® Collection

For 30 years, Barbie® has celebrated diversity around the globe with the Dolls of the World® Collection, featuring dolls adorned in native costumes. This summer, the best of the collection comes together for the first time, representing more than 40 nations across all seven continents through a special exhibit on Ellis Island.

You can celebrate the 30th anniversary by visiting the exhibit at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum throughout the summer from June 16 through September 15.

Activities include filling out a Barbie passport about your heritage by answering questions found at the Barbie exhibit, and getting a glimpse at the latest dolls in this beloved doll series, the Dolls of the World® Landmark Collection, including Statue of Liberty Barbie.

Later this summer, a special event will take place on August 6th at the base of the Statue of Liberty. Ten diverse models wearing reproductions of some of the most celebrated costumes from the Dolls of the World Collection will “come to life” and showcase their traditional garb. While each model walks, the audience will learn cultural and fashion facts about each country. The show will be held at 10am, 12pm and 2pm ET on August 6th in Liberty Island.
