ROUND 2 AND MATTEL TEAM UP FOR BARBIE™ CAR COLLECTIBLES
South Bend, IN (October 14, 2021) – Introducing Round 2’s 1957 Barbie™ Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible.
Founded in 1959, Barbie is the original female empowerment brand. The only thing as iconic as Barbie is her Dream World, which includes her Dreamhouse and an impressive collection of vehicles. Nobody accumulates Barbie’s kind of car collection without being smart, successful, and handy with a wrench (albeit a plastic one).
Although Barbie has owned several exciting vehicles over the years, Corvettes, Ferraris, Porsches, even Dune Buggies and Campers, she finally scored a true American classic car in 1988 when Mattel afforded her an iconic 1957 Chevy, in convertible form, of course.
At Round 2 we are proud to introduce 2 new versions of Barbie’s 1957 Chevy Bel Air convertible. These 1:18 scale, heavyweight die-cast vehicles replicate in exacting detail all of the glamour and glitz of the real cars and capture Barbie’s iconic flair as produced in Mattel’s toy Barbie™ vehicles from the 1980s.
Version 1 is offered in brilliant turquoise and version 2 in bright Barbie™ pink. So, jump on in and enjoy a nostalgic ride down Memory Lane with Barbie™… Just remember, she’s driving!
