Barbie has held down many careers, but a go-go boots-wearing celebrity chef with ample counter space, professional lighting, and "magical" oven? Seriously, it's magical. You just put in an "unbaked cake," then open the door to find a fully "baked" cake waiting. Her plastic, stuck-together fingers made it themselves! Being a chef is no longer a good enough ambition—but one with a television contract and blinding stage lights? Now that's what little girls should strive for. (I would have been all over this.)
"I Can Be TV Chef Barbie Playset" is available through Amazon for $37.46. We can only hope that Mattel is working on a tattooed, chain-smoking Bourdain-ian Ken. After the jump, watch the commercial.
