#BeSuper A Unique Online Empowerment Campaign For Children

This year, Barbie joins the ranks of the world’s greatest superheroes and shows children that Anything is Possible, by declaring 2015 the year to #BeSuper! This Spring, Barbie™ is launching superhero-themed toys, a DVD, books, role play, and more, as a way to inspire girls to creatively express what “super” means to them through play. Barbie has also created a unique online empowerment campaign called #BeSuper, to encourage young girls to make a difference in the world and share their super acts with their peers by tapping into their inner superhero by celebrating their own acts of "being super".

For the first time in her 56-year history, Barbie™ is putting on a cape and mask and transforming into a modern-day superhero. “Be Super seeks to encourage and celebrate all the everyday acts of super that Canadian kids are doing, both big and small,” says Lu Huang, Sr. Marketing Associate, Mattel Canada. “Whether it’s helping out at home or getting involved in the community, kids are doing extraordinary things every day. It’s about celebrating simple, daily acts and recognizing the superhero in all of us.”


To celebrate “being super,” Barbie™ fans can visit an all-new digital destination, www.BeSuper.com, where they can join the Barbie™ Super Squad and engage, create, imagine, and share their own “super” stories. Fans can download their official Super Squad Member Certificate and Handbook, filled with activities and tips on how to “Be Super”, and participate in fun monthly Super Missions. They can download collectible Mission Badges for every mission completed, and win super prizes for sharing how they completed each month’s mission.

Site visitors can also create their very own superhero comic strip with the first-ever Barbie™ Comic Maker game. Simple, easy-to-follow click-throughs will help kids create their own avatar, their own superhero story line, and choose from pre-loaded images and visuals to bring their story to life.

Every super team needs inspirational leaders to rally the troops, and the Barbie™ Super Squad is no exception. Four Canadian girls who are all doing super things in their communities were invited to act as ambassadors for the Super Squad, and share their stories to inspire kids from across Canada. Their profiles and stories are featured on the site to show other children how simple acts and ideas can have a large impact. The Super Squad Leaders will receive a combined $15,000 to support their causes to help continue their incredible work.

Barbie™ is bringing her superhero powers to the small screen with an all-new, action-adventure DVD movie: Barbie™ in Princess Power. A modern-day princess story, the movie will inspire and empower girls to discover their own inner superhero and showcases that there is no greater power than that of friendship. Barbie™ in Princess Power is now available on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD at retailers nationwide.

Movie screenings for Barbie™ in Princess Power will be held at select Cineplex theatres across Canada on March 21, 2015, and Super Squad Members can download their free tickets on www.BeSuper.com. Girls are invited to walk the pink carpet in their best superhero outfits, and bring a canned good for their local food bank. They’ll also get to meet their local Super Squad Leader, meet other Super Squad members, and win exciting prizes. Barbie as Super Sparkle™ will also make a character appearance at one special location.

  6. I live in Ottawa. My 5-year-old daughter loves Barbie and doesn't see her the same way as I or other adults do. If she starts to ask questions, we'll talk about it. I think that if this initiative generates communication then it's a great one.
