2017 Barbie Career Set: Astronaut and Space Scientist

Doll blogger Muff recently shared a post about a new Barbie Career Set, Chef and Waiter. At a Toys R Us store last week, I saw another Barbie Career Set. This one had a petite-bodied, Millie-faced Barbie for astronaut and a tall-bodied, Asha-faced Barbie for space scientist. I like the height difference. I do wish the bodies were articulated - seems that they are not. I took a very brief video showing the set and a photo showing the back of the box.


 

I wonder if Mattel will be producing double doll career sets. Seems like a fun idea to me. Has anyone seen this set? Are there other career sets - aside from the Toys R Us exclusive Ken and Barbie one seen a few years back?

I saw this set tonight on social media. It is very nice! I especially love the facemold. She looks like Asha.

I haven't seen this set yet. Christmas is around the corner. I hope they put out some good stuff.

Hi, Georgia girl! Yes, the space scientist does have the Asha face. The coloring and screening on that doll were lovely. Gorgeous blond-brown hair.

Hi, Jaye! Oh, yes! I'm hoping for nice stuff for Christmas, too ;-)!

At first I was all, "Ugh, look at that astronaut suit," but I quite like it. They both remind me of those kitchy 50's movies as if they are off to space to battle moon monsters.
