If Barbie Was Real

Have you ever wondered if Barbie was real – what she would be like? *sigh* I have a total love – hate relationship with Barbie. Before I had kids,

What if Barbie was a real person?

I swore if I had a daughter that she wouldn’t play with her. Barbie represent everything that I loathe about beauty. The idea that someone has to be tall, blonde, thin with big boobs slays me. Why would I let my daughter play with such a toy?

And then I had a daughter – an EXTREMELY girly daughter at that. I remember the first Barbie doll she received when she was 2. It was actually a Disney Princess doll the size of a Barbie. Okay, that’s fine, it will pass. And then she turned 3 and it was if that was the default birthday gift for the next 7 years of her life.

My daughter recently turned 10 years old. She received 3 Barbies for her birthday. She loves the doll and I made an agreement with myself that she could play with Barbies and I might actually buy her some (how cool is Photo Fashion Barbie!) if I constantly reminded her that Barbie is fine as a doll, but like cartoons is totally fake. So for the last 7 years, that’s what I’ve done.  Check out these details in regards to if Barbie were real…
