We saw Barbie move into the presidential race and into gymnastics coaching as part of her Careers line of dolls, but there’s one more doll coming out that deserves our attention. This year, Barbie will also become a chef cooking up spaghetti and meatballs. “But everyone can cook spaghetti and meatballs!” you say, understandably. Well, this is Barbie, and she’s not taking any shortcuts.
Look, Barbie’s not out here popping a Lean Cuisine into the microwave. She’s making the spaghetti and the meatballs from scratch, because she can, and because it’s better. The Spaghetti Chef set comes with chef Barbie plus a little kitchenette with a stove, oven, colander, and a pot large enough to cook for 20 guys (just in case she has to someday). The set also includes two bits of dough — one for the spaghetti and one for the meatballs — plus little contraptions that create the spaghetti strands and roll the meat into meatballs.
The most mouthwatering Barbie set yet will be arriving in toy stores sometime this fall for $25.
