Moon landing celebrations: Barbie and the European Space Agency launch new collaboration to encourage girls to become the next generation of astronauts, engineers and space scientists

Jul 20 2019
Today 20th July 2019 we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. It’s such an inspiring story for us all and watching the footage from 1969 of the two astronauts touching the moon gives me goosebumps. Of all moon landing celebrations, one of my favourite has to be the launch of a new collaboration between Barbie and the European Space Agency to encourage girls to become the next generation of astronauts, engineers and space scientists. As a girl who grew up with Barbies in the ’70s and ’80s and with a 200+ strong vintage Barbies‘ collection, this story really excites me, as I remember my pretend-games in which my dolls were career women including astronauts. Actually, Barbie brought out their first astronaut doll four years before Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. That for me says it all in terms of vision of the company that created my favourite toy of all time.
