Ready? OKAY!! Clap your hands and give a cheer — the peppiest dolls of the year are here! We’re celebrating the debut of four new University-themed Barbie Dolls, a series that pays tribute to some of the most celebrated colleges across the U.S.
These delightful, energetically posed cheerleaders display tons of campus pride and team spirit. They’re rallying crowds for the LSU Tigers, Auburn Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks, and Alabama Crimson Tide. Rah, rah, rah!
Each doll wears a super-cute cheerleading outfit representing her school’s signature colors and shapes. Louisiana State University Barbie Doll loves Purple and lives Gold in her “Geaux Tigers®” uniform. Auburn University Barbie Doll sports an auburn ’do (of course!) in support of the Orange and Blue. University of Arkansas Barbie Doll wins style points with Cardinal and White, while University of Alabama Barbie Doll kicks up her heels in White with Crimson accents.
Available in Caucasian and African-American versions, the dolls are accessorized with “ready-to-cheer” sneakers, colorful pom-poms, and a finishing hair bow. Plus, in a show of spirited devotion to collectors, the Barbie team has included a special design touch. “We’ve brought back some face sculpts that haven’t been used in awhile,” explains designer Linda Kyaw, “a small detail that most collectors can appreciate.”
Each cheerleader also comes with her school’s fight song lyrics printed right on the package. So whether you’re rooting for the Tigers, Hogs, or Tide, you too can loudly and proudly raise your voice — and cheer your team to victory!
You don’t have to fight, fight, fight to score the University-themed Barbie Dolls. The entire squad is available now in the online shop — so go, go, go! Perfect for collectors, the dolls also make great gifts for students, alumni, team fans, and anyone else who wants to put a handspring in their step. As Linda enthuses, “The campus spirit cheerleaders bring a vibrant flash of college spirit to the Collector Line!”
They’re winners indeed. Yay, Barbie team!
