MISSION BUILT NOT BOUGHT is my personal mission to empower children while at the same time honoring and showcasing careers in the skilled trades and the brilliant craftsmen and women who work in the trades, and to close the skills gap in the workforce.

I've created characters, children and skilled tradesmen who teach them, that are the foundation of this mission.

These characters empower children to build self esteem, learn work ethic, grow problem solving skills, and cultivate pride in craftsmanship through a children's book series, a Saturday morning cartoon show, and toys!


Love, Barbie The Welder
