For most blondes in L.A., it can take years to “make it” in Hollywood.  But Barbie has done it with ease, starring in numerous chart-topping direct-to-DVDs, touting a resume full of cameo appearances in dozens of theatrical movies, headlining a major live musical tour, as well as starring in symphony performances, TV commercials and more.

Her phenomenally successful DVD entertainment franchise includes more than 110 million units sold worldwide. On average, each DVD is seen 10 times by girls. Every Barbie DVD title is focused on what girls love– fairies, princesses but more importantly, each DVD focuses on teaching a positive life lesson including friendship, kindness, believing in yourself and teamwork.

Through it all, the “supporting cast” in Barbie movies, music and more reads like a “Who’s Who” of the entertainment industry, including:

  • Katharine McPhee
  • London Symphony Orchestra
  • New York City Ballet
  • Arnie Roth
  • Tony-Award winner Gregg Barnes
