Find out what Barbie vlogs about on her Youtube channel, how long Barbie has been making videos for and if Barbie is kid-safe

Barbie hasn't always been the world's greatest role model, but it seems as though the iconic Mattel kids' toy has undergone a serious attitude adjustment in recent years. Now she's running her own YouTube channel, and her empowering, entertaining and supportive vlogs are watched by millions all over the world.

What does Barbie vlog about?

From tackling bullies to gender quality, Barbie is the online big sister you never knew you needed. Think Zoella meets Lilly Singh - a winning combination by anyone's standards. 

Here's Barbie discussing feeling blue and mental health:

As well as more serious issues, Barbie vlogs about what she likes and doesn't like, her friends and her hobbies. She even dabs sometimes, but we'll forgive her for that. Like any other YouTuber, she also likes to get involved with the hottest challenges taking over the internet - so expect to see lots of challenges and tags on Barbie's YouTube channel.

When did Barbie start her YouTube channel?

Barbie first uploaded a vlog to YouTube in 2015. 
 

How many YouTube subscribers does Barbie have?

Barbie has a whopping 3.2 million YouTube subscribers.
 

Is Ken on Barbie's YouTube channel?

Yes! Ken does feature in a couple of Barbie's vlogs. But in this timeline, Ken isn't Barbie's boyfriend - he's her BFF instead! Having said that, on "Best Friend Tag with Ken" there seems to be a little romantic tension between the two of them.
 

Do Barbie's vlogs come in different languages?

Videos that are strictly blogs are only available in English, but Barbie has other videos in Spanish, Portuguese, Danish, and Finnish and Arabic on her YouTube channel.
 

Is Barbie's YouTube channel safe for kids?

With some apparently kid-friendly YouTube content turning out to be pretty damn nefarious, parents are right to wonder if Barbie is truly a kid-friendly YouTube channel. From what we've seen, Barbie vlogs aren't just kid-friendly, but genuinely insightful and educational for teens and younger kids. Plus, the channel is verified and run by toy giant Mattel, so we can't imagine they'd put anything dodgy on there.
 

How old is Barbie supposed to be on her YouTube channel?

It's not confirmed for definite, but we do know from her very first blog that Barbie is in school. She appears to be around 13-15 years old (which would explain why Ken isn't her boyfriend here), and her favourite classes are English and Science.
