At the final “Occupy Barbie” meeting Tuesday, Franziska Sedlak, 25, wondered why the Dreamhouse only lets girls act out careers like model and pop star, instead of jobs like engineer and mathematician.

Mattel’s Ms. Cota said the decision was one of logistics and entertainment. “Pretending to be an engineer is a hard concept for a 4- or 6-year-old to play out,” she said.
