Kids are a curious, experimental bunch. We have all these ideas in our minds that we, ourselves, can’t really act out, so we use our big ol’ kid imaginations and use our Barbies as guinea pigs. I’m not just talking dress up, okay? Let’s be real with ourselves here: If you were to go and find your old dolls, how many of them are going to be naked? Answer: Just about all of them.
"Barbie has been the center of controversy since she was invented in 1959. The thin, busty and leggy blonde became a hugely popular toy, but her body shape has been criticized forever because she’s not quite proportional. And by not quite I mean not at all.
In fact, if Barbie were a real-life person, she would be “6 feet tall with a 39″ bust, 18″ waist and 33″ hips.” She would be facing serious medical issues and would basically tip over if she tried to walk on those tiny feet.
Because of the controversies over Barbie’s size, she has changed a bit over the years. But she’s still a seriously disproportionate doll. While a lot of people are trying to show what Barbie would look like as a human, illustrator Nickolay Lamm is trying to depict what Barbie as a doll would look like if she were proportionate.”
