I laughed out loud when I stumbled across this picture.
Not because this is a picture of the first Barbie doll, because of the one pale one.
I’m putting together an exhibition on vintage (non creepy) dolls, and was searching for a photo to go in the “fashion doll” section. Instead, I found a picture that best describes me.
The pale girl giving the side eye.
I would have totally played with Barbie growing up if there had been a pale version. Instead, Strawberry Shortcake held my heart.
Did you have a favourite toy growing up?
