Barbie’s New Body

barbie (1)When I was a young girl, I played with a Barbie doll.

I wanted to look like Barbie–that perfectly wasp-like waist, those petite feet, and the long, artistic fingers.

Barbie was everything that I was not… Perfect.

After nearly sixty years, Barbie’s getting a ‘real’ make-over.

She will be made in 33 new styles–four new body styles with dozens of different features.

Now girls will play with a more realistic doll that will help them feel more comfortable in their own skin.  🙂

  1. Although I did play with Barbies, my favorite were stuffed animals and rag dolls. They were softer and easier to sleep with….

      1. Definitely. There wasn’t a lot of room for me left… Dad used to make up stories for me with the stuffed animals. I miss that.
