Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette

If anyone is a fan of Barbie or Corvette, this garage collectible item is something not to be missed. Released this year under #7/10 of HW Screen Time series is the Barbie’s ’14 Corvette Stingray Convertible. Anyone who knows Barbie very well will know that Barbie owns pink Chevrolet Corvette convertible.

 

Number “59” is likely given to the Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette as the year Barbie was launched, which was on 9 March 1959 or it is because Barbie is already 59 years old. Probably due to these two coincidences of its age correlating with the year it was launched that Mattel chose to celebrate Barbie in its other Power Brand “Hot Wheels” as well. On the eve of Barbie’s 59th birthday this year, Barbie celebrated International Women’s Day in a big way with new releases of 14 historical dolls of “Sheroes”. They were modeled after inspirational women such as Amelia Earhart, Frida Kahlo, Olympian Chloe Kim, and NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson.

 

Barbie is surely celebrating her 59th year with a blast 🙂

 

Back to Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette, the Barbie signature and head logo makes the card looks super cool.

 

The hood has tampo “Barbie” and “59” with Barbie head logo. Two white stripes enhances sporty look on the mini Barbie Corvette. There are no detailed headlights and grille on the front which makes the mini corvette’s mouth looks a glossy pink. The transparent hood vent grille definitely change the exterior look and sets this Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette apart from the rest.

 

White interior (including the white stripes, tampos and logo on the front, sides and rears) gives the pink exterior color contrast a bold sporty look.

 

The sides have tampos ‘Barbie’ and “59” with “Hot WHeels” logo. There is also a matching white stripe that runs through the “Barbie” tampo which ends with a Barbie head logo. Front windscreen is clear or transparent and non-tinted. Wheels are J5.

No tampo taillights or emblem at the back. Visible here are quad center exhaust outlet.

 

This is the bottom view. Base is made of plastic in white “shiny-pearl” color. It is “Made in Malaysia”.

 

Barbie looks happy to own this Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette. Although it is a size too small to ride on, it is definitely a hot tick in Barbie’s collectable items 😉

  1. my 6 year girl is into dolls and most “girly” things and I want her to know she can like “boy” toys like cars.

    this post is just great because I can show that you can like cars and still be girly (also the car comes in PINK!!!)

    Is it possible have the 59 changed 22 as thats her birthdate?

    also can you suggest anymore similar items i can get for her? thanks

  2. 59 years of incredible achievements,Glad that inspirational and resourceful women were duely recognised, most especially Katherine Johnson who I adore so much. But why is the deliberate omission of an emblem at the barbie back. Isnt that too plain at the rear? Anyways great piece of creativity to celebrate amazing years of great feast. 

    • Hi, Clement. I agree that it’s too plain at the rear and have no idea on the omission .  I can only hope that Hot Wheels sees this article  and will add more details in their future releases 😉

      Cheers, Rac

  3. For 59 Barbie looks amazing…

    And so does her car! She deserves it!

    Barbie has been around my whole life and my sister used to hang out with her when she was a kid.

    I never thought that 50 years later I would still be hearing about her.

    That is amazing.

    I love toy cars and I have been collecting them all my life. I’m into Lledo myself

    but this looks like a worthy trip down memory lane.

    I think it’s totally classic that the car in number 59!

    Great review about a historic figure in a lot of people’s lives

    Tim

    • Tim, it is definitely a historic figure which brings lots of fun and joy to people’s lives especially childhood years. Happiest memories. It is amazing that it becomes a neutral toy between boys and girls when the name Barbie, pink color and toy car combine together as a toy. Plus a collectible at the same time.

      Cheers, Rac

  4. Thank you for the review of the New Hot Wheels Barbie Corvette Stingray.  This Barbie convertible really brings back memories.  There was a time when every gift I wanted involved Barbie.

    This helps cross off another name on my Christmas shopping list if I can find it. 

    All the best to you and happy holidays!

    • Thanks, Vanna. It can be a sweet Christmas gift. Hope you can find it. 

      Happy holidays to you, too!

      Cheers, Rac
