Remember computer engineer Barbie? Who needed some mansplaining to figure out her fancy new job?

It looks like Mattel (the makers of Barbie) got the hint after people were outraged with the computer engineer version. And the new game developer Barbie isn't as sexist as her predecessor.

In fact, some have even called the new Barbie "fantastic" for its gender neutral accessories, actual programming books, and lack of Barbie stereotypes (like Ken and fashion magazines).

Here's a montage of the new game developer Barbie:
