Barbie doll fans the world over have collectively lost their minds with the recent trailer drop for the upcoming Barbie movie. While little is known so far as to what the movie is actually about, from what we’ve seen it looks like a lot of love & detail was put into the film. You know who else appreciates love & detail? Sims creators!
If you can’t wait until the movie releases in July, tide yourself over in the meantime by playing with Barbie doll(s) in the Sims 4! It’s not uncommon for simmers to refer to their characters as “pixel dolls,” as the Sims is such a versatile game that can be played in lots of ways. We have all sorts of content on this list to scratch that Barbie CC itch!
Whether you want to create your own version of Barbara Millicent Roberts, or just make your sim look like they come from the same world as the most famous doll ever, there’s oodles of Barbie CC for Create-A-Sim!

Reina took the classic costumes for Barbie and Ken as seen in Toy Story 3 and not only recreated them, but added several other fantastic colorways as well!

21. Sims 4 Barbie Doll Collection by Mel Bennett

23. Barbie Styling Head from AroundTheSims
No matter the decade, one thing seems constant: toy companies love making dismembered heads for kids to practice hair & makeup on. Now you can share this horror with your pixel dolls via the simmified version, which functions as a dollhouse with custom accessories. There’s also a deco version for players who prefer to have their kids’ toys judging them menacingly from a shelf, out of reach. If this sounds like your thing, head to December 8 on this page to download these heads for yourself.
24. Barbie Dream House by AroundTheSims
When I was little, I had a Barbie dollhouse. Unfortunately at that time I possessed a child-like grasp of weight distribution, and thought it would be fun to convince my baby sister to sit atop the house. What resulted was a pile of bent cardboard and disappointed plastic, and a bunch of homeless Barbie dolls. Oops!
Though sims can’t do anything as foolish as child-me did, they can enjoy their own version of Barbie’s Dream House with this cute dollhouse by ATS. Hopefully no angry sims come by and smash it!

Barbie has had access to so many unique places throughout her career from trendy townhouses to elaborate estates and everything in between. Take a tour with us of some great Barbie builds for the Sims 4!
28. Barbie Kiddies Party Venue by LaSkrillz Gaming
5 year-old me would have lost my mind to have a birthday party like this! LaSkrillz created a whole set of Barbie themed party items and then even built a space so you can start playing with them right away. There’s a cake table, selfie wall, goody bags, and so many pink balloons! This would be a great set for some photoshoots with your sims’ children and their friends. If you’ve got a sim in mind who would go gaga for this kind of party, grab the set and venue (room) here!
Barbie not the party theme your sim is looking for? Perhaps they’d prefer to celebrate at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria!

32. Malibu Barbie Collaboration by SIMplee Tierra & Friends
A massive undertaking by nearly a dozen different people, SIMplee Tierra & friends created a save file for the Sims 4 that turns Del Sol Valley into an 80’s-90’s malibu Barbie paradise! It’s sunny, bright, retro, and (mostly) pink and reminds me of the Barbie dolls I played with when I was a little girl. Plus, it’s so much cooler than the the version of Del Sol Valley that ships with Get Famous.
Visit this YouTube link for the virtual tour and check the video description for the file download.

Bonus: Barbie Lookbooks by SilwerMoon Sims!
Though she has a specific section dedicated to the many lookbooks she’s created, Silwermoon is such a big Barbie fan that she has several pages of content solely dedicated to recreating Barbie’s antics in the Sims 4. Not every entry includes a lookbook but if you’re after inspiration for dressing up your own Barbie sims, or hoping to find a specific item for your own recreations, it’s worth giving her blog a visit.
Love lookbooks? We’ve got a whole post about them with over 50 curated outfits!
After scrolling through this list it should come as no big shock that a lot of Barbie doll fans are also Sims 4 fans and vice versa. Barbie is all about creating your own world and following your imagination and building the experience you want to have, and the Sims 4 isn’t very different from that. If you’re a massive Barbie fan suffering a lack of Barbie content in the Sims, you are now equipped with a list of fashionable, functional, flirty, fantastic files to remedy that. We hope you enjoyed this list and that it holds you over until the movie comes out!
