Moms, let’s agree that DADS WHO PLAY BARBIE are pretty awesome! As a mom, one thing that makes me smile every single day is seeing my husband get down on the floor and play with our daughters.

A great relationship between dads and their daughters is very important, so when I heard about The Barbie, #DadsWhoPlayBarbie Challenge I was excited to share. This fun and exciting contest encourages Dads and Daughters to create a video around all the fun things they do together – cooking, career, fantasy, music or make-believe!

I laughed out loud watching the DADS WHO PLAY BARBIE video below because I could totally see my husband and daughter having a make-believe Barbie cupcake dance party just like the dad and daughter at the beginning.

The Grand Prize winner will receive a 4-day/3-night trip for up to four (4) to Los Angeles, California to tour the Mattel headquarters for a behind-the-scenes look at the Barbie® manufacturer and the opportunity to experience first-hand what it feels like to be a Barbie® designer.

It would be pretty awesome if one of our Mommy Moment readers won this incredible #DADSWHOPLAYBARBIE contest. Good Luck to you all. Here is the Official Contest Website.

I don't think my Hubby is a Barbie kinda Dad but he has always set aside time to make sure his girls have their own time with Daddy Daughter Days and fun times. It's so important for how they will grow up and see men as well as their own confidence.

OMG I saw this during the previews for Beauty and the Beast!! It was so adorable I even got teared up with happiness haha. I know I'm a sober. This is such a great marketing campaign from Barbie (Mattel). Way to keep the love for barbies alive and inspire young girls to be whatever they want.

My dad was that man who would play Barbies with me, or any other girlie game!! It's just such a fun-loving, chill man! I'm lucky to have found that in my husband too!

Aw my daughter is just a baby and not at the barbie phase yet, but I am 100% sure my husband would be all for playing with barbies! Maybe this campaign will still be around in a few years... I would love to enter my husband in this challenge!
