I just bought my 10 year old a Barbie recently. According to my calculations, not that I am calculating, Barbie should be 51years old. Lined up beside her in the Barbie section (will I ever have my own section?) are the usual convertibles, hairdressing stations and I even saw a Barbie toilet. She has her own bathroom now. Ah, but does she have an alligator? Score for me...
OK, let's try to be a little realistic here. If we are going to be honest with our kids and give Barbie a toilet, let's be real and give her what the average middle age woman really needs. Spandex. Wonder Bra. Therapy.
Why can't we be realistic with our precious children? Speaking of children, I haven't seen mine in a while. Thankfully, they show up when they are hungry. I just feel that the toymakers should update the toys on a regular basis, not give toilets to something that looks anorexic.
As for Mr. Winnie the Pooh, he is still running around with no pants on. Anything that is old enough to be on medicare should be forced to wear pants. We forced Grandpa. Hey, it's life.
