That Doll Barbie
Yes...Barbie may be only plastic, but no "doll" in history has ever created so much controversy, love, hate and literature. Hardly anyone is neutral.
She is over 50 but still looks 23. Little girls throw tantrums in toy stores. Big girls try to look like her, even going to the extremes of having plastic surgery to get her figure and face. Poets write about her and women collect her. Even the Smithsonian has a collection of Barbies.
Barbie is indeed an icon.
This issue we are exposing our feelings about this little piece of plastic. We have memories of our first Barbies and satire about the fictional life of this little lady.
Join the Kittens as we explore the life of this icon.
In addition to Barbie, there are new toy reviews (Debbie's discovery), game reviews, book reviews, a site review and a movie review.
We've been busy the last couple of weeks, and I'm sure you will find something to tickle your fancy.
Love to all,
