So wrong, so right, so glam


Yeah, yeah, I know


Check out the stable foot platform, and the stiff yet compliant bottom bracket area

Authentic leg movement!

Mixed emotions about this

  1. Hmmmm... Am I wrong or is that the first ever flat footed Barbie? Skipper has flat feet, but I've never seen a Barbie that could wear flat shoes. If so, this is kind of awesome.

    I still kind of want to get the Architect Barbie and turn her into a LEED AP Barbie for my desk, make her a tiny copy of a LEED Rating System manual.

  8. Dog Friendly, we have a couple other non-standard footed Barbies in the population here, including one with decidedly flat feed. Most are the standard 13/16" suited for high heels Barbie feet, though, so you are correct in that this one is different.

    BluesCat, definitely for Younger Daughter, as cycler said TOO PINK for me!!

    Since I'm on a short xmas break, Younger Daughter and I have gone for actual bike rides together (AUTHENTIC LEG ACTION!), which I hope will have long-term positive effects.

  9. THIS JUST IN: her feet are actually normal, it's her shoes that are odd. In the post-xmas stuff resorting operation, she was momentarily set aside, but now has been relocated, and on inspection her feet are standard arched 13/16" specification. The shoes on the other hand are flat adapters to fit into the pedals which enable the AUTHENTIC LEG ACTION. I apologize for any doll foot classification missteps which this may have caused.

  10. This is the version I saw at my local Target. Her resemblance to me is uncanny.

  11. Melanie Suzanne, yes that's the one! I think I most resemble Dapper Dan as I proceed down the avenue on my wheels.
