The Barbie for grown-ups

Announced as ‘a powerful moment’, Mattel have unveiled a new range of Barbie dolls, including curvy, tall and petite body shapes. The iconic doll’s new makeover, heralded by the hashtag #TheDollEvolves, has been celebrated as a progressive step, moving away from the tiny waist and perfect hair of the classic Barbie to a more realistic role model for young girls.

      This is why GI Joe only comes home to the Barbie Hooker series now. Mattel’s Heidi boxed set.

      I remember that film very well indeed. I had to be bribed to go see it as I have always found Natalie Wood to be among the WORST actresses in Hollywood history. She was as wooden in Brainstorm as she was in most of her other movies.

    I’m afraid to ask how they test them out.
