Inspired by the breakout character of the same name from Barbie The Movie, the Weird Barbie Doll wears an outfit similar to the one you will see in the feature film. Wearing a bright pink dress with colorful artwork and puffy sleeves, she comes complete with green snakeskin boots, short, tousled hair, and markings on her face to emulate a doll that’s been “played too much.”

Designed by Javier Meabe, the Weird Barbie Doll has a made-to-move body type, allowing fans to recreate the character’s famous moves in the movie. The posable doll comes in collectible Barbie The Movie packaging and includes a certificate of authenticity. Although the doll could not stand on its own, it comes with a doll stand, which allows collectors to display it in any pose they wished.

Weird Barbie is a character in the 2023 live-action film Barbie played by Kate McKinnon. She is a free-spirited and eccentric Barbie who doesn’t quite fit in with the other Barbies in Barbieland. She is often seen wearing wacky outfits and hairstyles, and she is not afraid to be different.

In the film, Weird Barbie is a bit of a rebel and a rule-breaker. She is also the keeper of Barbie knowledge, and she is often consulted by the other Barbies when they need advice. Weird Barbie is a role model for young girls who don’t feel like they fit in, and she shows them that it is okay to be different.
