Mattel and meditation app Headspace partnered on Barbie Wellness, a range of seven dolls that are designed to introduce kids to various self-care practices. While Barbie has been portrayed with many different careers and interests over the years, this range of dolls puts a particular interest on mental health.
In the Barbie Wellness range, there's Breathe with Me Barbie, who leads guided meditations when her moon-shaped necklace is pressed. There are also dolls devoted to fitness, the spa, relaxation and bathtime.
With a young demographic in mind, Headspace created a series of four-minute mindfulness sessions for kids ages six to eight that can be accessed online. These themed sessions are tailored to mornings, staying positive after experiencing negative thoughts or feelings, cultivating calm or appreciation and settling down after playtime is over.
