Log onto Instagram right now, and you’ll find hundreds of niche accounts. From Trader Joe’s fan accounts to feeds made solely to chronicle funny texts from your mom. And now your favorite childhood toy has her own Instagram documenting her life as a millennial mom. That’s right, Barbie as a millennial.
According to the PEW Research Center, a millennial refers to anyone born after 1980—the “the first generation to come of age in the new millennium.” PEW also reported that 82 percent of births in the United States in 2015 were from millennial mothers—so the account certainly did not come out of nowhere.
Tiff_thebarbie, whose creator prefers to stay anonymous, according to The Huffington Post, has over 33,000 followers with more than 700 posts. The account keeps tabs on Barbie’s busy life as a mom while poking fun at millennials’ social media tendencies. You’ll find everything from photos of Barbie and Ken at a carnival with their kids, to Barbie Facetiming her family from Fiji, to her numerous pregnancy updates (including Barbie rubbing cocoa butter on her pregnant belly).
All of the photos are staged to look as real as possible and are often edited in some way. To add to the humor, the creator will tack on commonly used hashtags like #momlife or #momsofinstagram. And for Father’s Day—Tiff the Barbie didn’t disappoint. Complete with a post showing Ken and their two children and the message “happy Father's Day to this amazing, hardworking, loving, caring, funny, weird, silly and annoying father.”
