Giving back to the community starts with the dolls.
Collectors and parents like donating new and gently used dolls to us because we not only regift them to underprivileged children, but we also use them in the unique doll play experiences we offer for families to build their awareness of community needs.

At The Barbie Girls Project, we are committed to fostering a positive and empowering community for young children through the power of Barbie dolls. We believe that self-expression and creativity are vital components of a child’s development, and our mission is to provide a safe and inclusive space for children to explore their interests and share their stories.
Our team is dedicated to promoting positive self-image and self-esteem in children by encouraging them to express themselves through Barbie dolls. We offer a range of programs and resources that are designed to help children develop their social skills, build their confidence, and cultivate a sense of community. Whether it’s through our workshops, events, or online community, we are here to support and empower young children to be their best selves.
At The Barbie Girls Project, we are passionate about spreading a message of positivity and self-expression. Our ultimate goal is to create a world where all children feel valued and supported, and where they can freely express their unique perspectives and ideas. We believe that by working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of young children and help them to realize their full potential.

Hands-on doll play is an integral part of a childhood experience for the right kind of child. The one who has a nurturing spirit, loves fashion, art, cosmetics, hair design, and playing pretend. Such a child can be a social butterfly, shy wallflower, inventor, collector, and entrepreneur. Of these children, some – but not all – have been abused, neglected, bullied, or suffer from low self-esteem. They, along with their peers who have and have not shared those same experiences, can often play together for hours and bond over their mutual love of Barbie, but many choose to play individually instead and feel just as content. Why? Because Barbie is their outlet for creativity and self-expression, as well as a way to make sense of how they are feeling.
Barbie may have a womanly figure, but instinctively children relate to her because the doll represents who they will one day be, OR someone else in their life they admire. An older sister, a babysitter, aunt, friend, or even a mom. And however a child is led to the world of Barbie, that influence has the potential to guide them to look for the best in others and themselves. That is what it means to us to be a Barbie girl and why we call ourselves The Barbie Girls Project.
