Anyone who has studied Barbie knows she is a powerhouse – sales always rise and fall since her introduction in 1959…and she generates billions of dollars to the worldwide economy. Say what you will about her body size, but methinks keeping kids off fast food is a stab at better parenting than taking Barbie away. No one seems to have an issue with action figures having impossible representations of BOTH male and female bodies for little boys, now do they? In the end, we all still have the right to simply not see the movie if we choose – so who really cares if Sony wants to make a film franchise? I do if they are good – look at how fun she was in the Toy Story movies. Barbie is important, and you will never see her disappear…ever. Get used to it.
Children can play out the possibilities of their look with Barbie doll, then wash and dry the item to start all over. Change a look to match a mood, a story or a style. Children will love the possibilities for creativity and play. Look for extension packs to expand the options even more (sold separately). The Barbie Airbrush Studio includes Barbie doll wearing dress and shoes, airbrush with base and design platform, dress form, three white washable fabric fashion pieces, four airbrush markers and five stencils. Fashions fit most Barbie dolls. Doll cannot stand alone. Colours and decorations may vary.
