Barbie Land is a matriarchal utopia where stereotypical Barbie and a vast variety of other Barbies live. They hold occupations like physicians, attorneys, and legislators in contrast to their Ken counterparts, who spend their days lounging on the beach. Stereotypical Barbie is having a dance party when she suddenly starts to worry about dying. She wakes up the next morning sad and going through unexpected menopause-related bodily changes. She encounters Weird Barbie, a misfit in the community who reveals that everyone in Barbie’s land is a toy. She must enter the real world and locate her owner if she is to heal from her unidentified illness.
Ken, who has an unrequited infatuation on Stereotypical Barbie, travels with her to Los Angeles. Through a portal, they both arrive to Venice Beach, where they both engage in a number of pranks that frighten the Mattel CEO and prompt him to order their capture. Barbie the stereotype finds her owner, an adolescent called Sasha. Sasha, who fiercely ridicules Barbie with her friends before discovering that her mother Gloria, a Mattel employee, is the cause of her existential crisis, is discovered by her and Ken at a local high school. Gloria, who was going through a midlife crisis, started playing with Sasha’s Barbie dolls and unintentionally projected her concerns onto Stereotypical Barbie.
Meanwhile, Ken learns that “men rule the world” and the patriarchal structure of America. When he gets back to Barbieland, he persuades the other Kens to take control and create their own patriarchy. Barbie the stereotype suffers from depression since the Barbies are swiftly cast into subordinate positions as servants, housewives, and girlfriends. The Barbies are inspired to fight back against the Kens and retake control of Barbieland with the aid and encouragement of Sasha, Gloria, Weird Barbie, Allan, and other abandoned Barbie toy lines, which leads to a battle between the Kens and Barbies on the Barbieland beach. Following a ceasefire, the Barbies swiftly take back control of the business, leading Ken to lose it. Ken and Stereotypical Barbie both express regret to one another.
Although she tells him that even if she is not in love with him, he can still form his own identity, she acknowledges that her failure to handle his courtship caused him to rebel. Stereotypical Barbie, who is once again in conflict over her future role, meets with Mattel’s CEO before Ruth Handler steps in and explains Barbie’s history to her, pointing out that while she was initially inspired by her daughter to become a doll, women throughout history have served as her primary source of inspiration. Stereotypical Barbie is brought to tears by this and asks Ruth to make her into a human so she may return to the real world. Ruth responds by saying that she is already a person. Later, Stereotypical Barbie, now going by Barbara Roberts, is taken to her first appointment with a gynecologist by Sasha, Gloria, and her husband.
