    I actually have a female roommate who proudly states she never played with a Barbie Doll. All of the Barbies she got for Birthdays and Christmas from family and friends were given to her younger sister. On the other hand, all of her sister's My Little Ponies and Breyers went to my roommate.

    Or, she could have saved them in the box and made some money as a grown up!

    But, that's cool she had a trade-off with her sister! Different strokes for different folks. My daughter really didn't 'play' with hers, except when we went swimming.

    Nope. Anything even vaguely "feminine" has never been Shawna's style. She wouldn't even have wanted them in her room. The ultimate "tomboy".

    That's kind of the deal her mother worked out between them. Shawna wanted nothing to do with Barbie or any other type of "doll". Her sister Kristi is the ultimate girly-girl. No dirt for her; and ponies/horses were too close to potentially getting dirty for her.

    I put Barbie's dad photo in my browser and promptly got five photos--three were of goats, one was a football player posing with a girl, and one a young guy (Audie Murphy?) in uniform.

    But RIP Mr. Handler, just the same. Millions of little girls have enjoyed Barbie and many millions of dollars have exchanged hands for the dolls, a wardrobe that would make Queen Elizabeth envious, the special cars, carriages, doll houses with all the expensive furnishings, hair care kits, and accessories.

    Barbie turned 50 in 2009 and it has been speculated what she would look like if a real woman had her measurements. One answer:
    A much more detailed discussion of her measurements is here:
    BBC NEWS | UK | Magazine | What would a real life Barbie look like?

    Seems the Europeans took more interest in that than Americans did. :)
