When my sister and I were young girls we had a lot of Barbie dolls, along with the prerequisite accessories: the Barbie House, the Barbie Motor Home, the Barbie Corvette, the Barbie Hair Salon, as well as the Barbie Airplane. We had Malibu Barbie, Superstar Barbie, Growing Up Skipper (who “grew” a chest when her arm was rotated), and even a Ken doll that came complete with removable facial hair and sideburns. We loved our Barbies, fought over them and treasured them. Later on, when we were a bit older and bored, we would cut their hair and use markers on them because we thought they needed “makeup”. Sadly, a lot of them were unintentionally mutilated along the way. When the time was right, I piled them up in a suitcase, and left them in my parents’ basement which is where they remain today. After seeing Toy Story 3, I felt so guilty that I almost drove out to my parents to free Barbie and her friends! If your old toys could talk, what would they say about you?
