Barbie to Be a Featured “Model” in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue


She won’t actually be on the cover – the above is a promo handout for the New York Toy Fair. But she will have her own photoshoot inside, as well as several other SI tie-ins like a special collector doll.

I like the precedent of toys being legitimate models, though. Can we get He-Man on the cover of regular Sports Illustrated?
