Barbie Video Girl + Scavenger Hunt = Adult Summer Play

Barbie Video Girl is the latest addition to the Barbie family, but she’s not some doll that fancies herself a music video model, camera person, or video editor. No, this doll is much cooler than that. Barbie Video Girl is actually a video camera that can record your summer adventures. There’s a tiny camera lens in her necklace and a monitor in her back. And she’s compatible with both Mac and PC. What’s even more exciting is the adult scavenger hunt to kick off the launch of Barbie Video Girl. You can win fun prizes, free swag, and maybe a Barbie Video Girl doll of your own. The doll has already landed in San Francisco, and throughout the day Barbie Video Girl will post clues to her whereabouts via Twitter (@BarbieStyle) and Foursquare (@BarbieStyle). You only have one day to find her, but Barbie Video Girl is also going to hit up a few fun and fashionable spots in L.A. tomorrow, Chicago on Thursday, and NYC on Friday. Read the official rules for the scavenger hunt here. And good luck! [$49.99, Mattel] Keep reading »

Move Over, Barbie: Ken Doll Models For Esquire

Barbie had a million jobs, but did we ever really know what Ken did? With that head of hair, of course he’s a model. This month, Ken is tricked out in teeny, tiny men’s fall fashions for Esquire UK. We pity the assistant who tailored that miniature Gucci duffle bag! [Esquire UK] Keep reading »

Is “Toy Story 3″ Sexist?

toy story

Toy Story 3” has been receiving nothing but praise. It’s topped the box office for two weeks in a row and has pulled in $226 million so far. Not to mention that critics are lauding it as the saving grace in a horribly blah summer movie season. But Ms. magazine is not too happy about the movie’s success. The feminist publication recently posted an article on their blog about the sexism and negative stereotypes in the film. Natalie Wilson, who wrote the piece, admits that the kids’ movie is “fresh” and “clever,” but she also claims that it contains a few too many misogynistic and homophobic jokes for comfort.

Statue Of Liberty Barbie Arrives On Ellis Island

This is the 30th anniversary of the Barbie Dolls of the World Collection, and Mattel chose to celebrate this milestone with a special exhibit on Ellis Island, a fitting place since that is where millions of immigrants first landed in the U.S. The dolls in the collection represent 40 nations across seven continents. I was delighted to see three dolls that I actually own from the collection — Moroccan Barbie, South African Barbie, and Native American Barbie — at the exhibit. But I was especially excited to peep the latest additions to the Dolls of the World series. Statue of Liberty Barbie, Big Ben Barbie, and Eiffel Tower Barbie make up the new Dolls of the World Landmark Collection. All three dolls were designed by Linda Kyaw and are decked out in gowns representing their specific landmark. Check out more pics of the Landmark Collection after the jump, and fingers crossed that Mattel adds a Sphinx Barbie. What landmark would you like to see Barbie represent? Keep reading »

Introducing Wonder Bread Barbie

Little girls everywhere, it’s finally arrived — Wonderbread Barbie! It’ll be hard to control yourselves, but don’t freak out, OK?! Oh. Wait. No one’s freaking out? Probably because Wonder Bread Barbie clothes actually weren’t terribly high on your list of must-see items. That didn’t stop Catherine McEver from fashioning a whole pint-sized wardrobe out of Wonder Bread wrappings, though. We’ve got to admit that McEver did a bang-up job of turning plastic wrap into doll attire, but we can’t help but wonder who ate all the bread. Come on, look at those thighs; you know Barbie didn’t do it. [Advertising Is Good For You] Keep reading »
