Father-of-two and rugby league legend Billy Slater has shown off his parenting skills in a new social media video.

Slater has joined toy manufacture Mattel’s “Dads who Play Barbie” campaign, which urges dads to spend time playing with Barbies with their children.

The video, which is captioned “this one’s for all you dad’s out there. Let me share some of my off field expertise with you,” shows the Melbourne Storm player playing with his daughter.

“Today I’m going to teach you how to play Barbie with your daughter,” Slater says, before getting into character as Barbie.

“Hi there vet Barbie…potty puppy has a nasty, nasty cough, do you think you can help?”

The post attracted more than 250 comments in less than three hours, and has been viewed more than 23,000 times.
