Growing up, we’ve always looked at our dads as the calm and level-headed pillars of strength. From helping us with homework to kissing our boo-boos, our fathers, in the process of giving us the best possible childhood, have taught us such valuable lessons. This amazing video by Barbie offers a throwback to the simpler times when playing dolls with our father used to be the best part of our day. 

In the guise of some truly adorable doll-play, fathers are teaching their little girls to believe that the world is their stage. They are learning to be compassionate, kind and caring, proving to parents around the world that life-lessons as profound as these can sometimes be learnt outside of classrooms. All it takes is our unflinching attention and a little Barbie time.
