Sugarfina’s New Collection Celebrates Barbie’s 60th Anniversary

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Barbie has long inspired children everywhere to be authentic, original, and imaginative. Co-founder and co-CEO at Sugarfina, Rosie O’Neill, said in a press release: “Barbie has always inspired me to dream big and pursue my career aspirations. From playing with Veterinarian Barbie as a little girl, to creating Computer Engineer Barbie and Architect Barbie during my career at Mattel, I have always viewed Barbie as a role model and a trailblazer. I’m so proud to have the opportunity to bring our two brands together to inspire girls everywhere, just as Barbie inspired me to pursue my dream of becoming an entrepreneur.”

 

The most amazing part? 100 percent of the proceeds from the Sugarfina Barbie collection is being donated to StepUp, an organization dedicated to creating confident women and girls through supporting girls living in under-resourced communities. In honor of International Women’s Day and Barbie’s 60th anniversary, Sugarfina will be hosting events in California, Dallas, and New York on March 9.
