Who Would Buy This?

We are certain the Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll will be in short supply with this limited edition as adults who are keen on maintaining a Barbie Doll collection will be foolish to pass up on the chance to include the Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll to their collection.

Things We LikeBarbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll

The design of the swimsuit worn by the Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll may not be as revealing as the modern swimsuits and bikinis that we see these days. But that is where the real beauty of this doll lies. The one-piece is sexy but still conservative, and it still maintains a degree of class and sophistication all rolled into one. The black and white stripe design is definitely eye-catching, and the halter design makes it even appealing to the eye.

The accessories are also worth mentioning, from the sexy strappy heels to the gold cuff bracelet, and topped off by the white-rimmed sunglasses perched atop Barbie’s head. To complete that beach look, her hair is neatly tied up in a ponytail.

We truly appreciate the effort that went beyond this collaboration. Sports Illustrated and Mattel clearly appreciate what the other has accomplished over decades, so they were able to come up with a successful partnership, with wonderful results. The magazine paid tribute to the “doll that started it all”, while Mattel made sure to remain faithful to Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit concepts.


Things We Don’t Like

The Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll is a limited edition, so finding it is going to be quite a challenge. Another aspect about it that we did not like very much is how the skin tone was limited to a neutral version. It would be a good idea to also come up with a Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll in other skin tones.



Mattel provides warranty coverage for all its Barbie products. However, the specifics for the Barbie Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Doll have not yet been revealed.
