    Mine was a honey blonde in a turquoise dress.
    She was a kind of grown up doll I played with through the start of puberty. 🤔

    Actually my elder sister as a child always longed for a Barbie and didn't get one, since we did not need her...I am not sure her daughters had Barbies.

    I didn’t need her, but my Action Man was beating her off with a ski pole.

    You do realise that your nation had the idea first in 1955 with the Bild Lilli doll and that the Americans kidnapped her and surgically transformed her into Barbie 3 years later.

    Disgraceful!

    Barbie personified an ideal for several generations of girls. It took Mattel ages to update the doll with a black-skinned Grace-line that wasn't simply a White-Barbie dyed dark.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1219257/Barbie-launch-black-doll-look-like-real-people-having-fuller-features.html

    However, I'm not altogether sanguine about the ideal of beauty which the dolls represent. I mean, they're either anatomically impossible or anorexic: too long legs, too thin ankles, wasp-waisted, etc.

    OK, so boys' toy dolls (Justice League, DC Comics, etc.) are equally absurd ...

    All in good fun, so long as girls don't go bulimic trying to emulate them.

    I must have modelled myself on Ken. I wore fatigues in my art college days.

    Barbie was an invention of the devil, she created whole generations of girls with poor self-images. Nobody could ever live up to the Barbie ideal.

    Barbie and Ken, 'the perfect couple'.

    Sort of agree with you but my 4 year-old insisted on Barbie for xmas.
    As compensation she has some chubby baby dolls too.
