This isn’t your Mom’s Barbie


My twin girls haven’t shown much interest in Barbie. At first I was a little disappointed because I remember so many hours of fun with Barbie,Ken,Skipper and my neighbor Kathy and the whole Hee Haw gang…..oh wait, wrong memory. I haven’t thought much more about it until we had a friend over for a play date the other day. Play dates weren’t required when I was growing up; we just went from neighbor’s to neighbor’s house and played. In the 21st century you must put it on the calendar. The sweet girl that was here couldn’t believe that the twins only had a few Barbie dolls. Being the Mom that I am, I immediately thought that this deficiency would be sure to scar them for life. So,I went straight to the Barbie section when I was out Christmas shopping today.

Dear Lord, I was in for a shock!

Just where are the rest of her clothes? Does Fashionista mean Skankonista?  What is going on with that print material and what kind of makeover did Ken get exactly?











This is Ken’s friend. Let’s pause while you take it all in. He is supposed to be an edgy rocker.  I prefer Jon Bon Jovi, especially since he is alive after all when Twitter had him declared dead.,or Steven Tyler for his staying power .  On second thought, what ever happened to G. I. Joe? Is he still single?












I was in such a state of confusion that I only left with a Baby Alive. She seems to be doing just fine. Like I remember. No makeover needed.
