I would have absolutely LOVED a pregnant Barbie doll! What a brilliant, brilliant idea... in fact I'd still love one. I wonder if they ever sold in New Zealand? I only discovered them yesterday, reading this blog. I did a wee google search and found loads of images, including some kind of gruesome pregnant doll. I also discovered that it was not actually Barbie, but her friend Midge(other brands have also done preg dolls)that was pregnant, that they were somewhat controversial and that they also came with red hair and freckles! Coming from a long line of redheads myself (although I'm blonde) I have a soft spot for them, and would also have loved one of these dolls. Isn't this pregnancy shot great? Great lighting Midge. She obviously didn't suffer from fluid retention.
Wouldn't it be wonderful to flip your tummy after birth and have it back to it's former self?
I can't wait to buy Poppet her first Barbie, though I want her to be much older and actually looking forward to getting one. My first one was 'exercise barbie' and she was for my 8th birthday. I remember the ads on TV and really, really wanting her. I loved her.
