Barbie’s been a style icon since 1959, and some of her best work is in decades past. That's why it makes so much sense that Mattel has introduced a Barbie Rewind line, with a trio of Barbies that harken back to the 1980s. These girls are maximalists, with leg warmers, shoulder pads and oversize hair ornaments. Any kid who's a fan of Barbie will get a kick out of this crew. And some nostalgic adults will enjoy them just as much. Believe it or not, these Barbies are on sale right now at Walmart at a $15 savings. Just $25 each, they can get to your home by Christmas. 

For the best deals and the fastest shipping now and the rest of the year, you really should give Walmart+ a try.

Remember the ’80s movie Working Girl? Barbie was certainly making office moves of her own around the same time. This fashion-forward, career-oriented doll dons a day-to-night look, in a bright-pink peplum jacket, a houndstooth skirt and power pumps. Usually this stylish executive would run you $40, but right now you get her for a real steal, at only $25.

One mom found this Barbie to be a big hit: "I'm not sure who loves this Barbie Rewind Career Barbie more, me or my daughter! Barbie comes in a retro VHS style box, which makes even opening the doll so much fun. A beautiful ’80s outfit, accessories, and a cassette tape [doll] stand bring back memories of the ’80s. My daughter loved Barbie's hair, her sparkly outfit, and the fact that her arms and hand could be posed many ways. She also got a kick out of putting her accessories into the briefcase. Our career Barbie has had many busy days at the office...."

Moms loved the rock star vibe. Says one: "This throwback Barbie is so awesome! As a child of the '80s, it took me straight back to my childhood! My daughter loved her, too. She loved the keyboard, because [she] takes piano lessons. She also thought Barbie's crop top was fabulous…crop tops are all the rage with 10 year old girls it seems, these days! The stand that comes with the doll is very sturdy, as are all her accessories. My daughter especially loved the substantial box and used it as a back drop for the concert her doll put on. Well done!!"

Shoppers loved sharing the '80s nostalgia with their kids: "As a child of the 80's this was a fun doll to share with my daughter. We loved her fashion, and the accessories were perfect for the outfit. The doll has been played with a lot and has lead to other investigation into what life was like for mom as a kid.
