Speaking of pop culture, the references you will see in this Hot Wheels set are Barbie, Masters of the Universe, Rock ‘Em Sock “Em Robots, and Little People.
Barbie has always been a legendary style icon for girls, and now the franchise is making a 21st-century comeback with Barbiecore fashion and the first live-action Barbie movie in the making. So, this pink, white, and turquoise Barbie-themed van has perfect timing!
