Oh Barbie! Let’s face it many try to be her and many try to date her. She’s served as a fantasy for many men and women whether they want to be her or be with her, and many have climbed to the C-Grade ranks of fame trying to impersonating her.

I loved Barbie as a kid, I tried to collect as many of the Barbie sets with her theme of pink and purple luxury pools, sofas and dressing tables. Plus, I would try and get as much outfits for her every week and as many colour shoes. It was amazing and I loved dressing her up. She was all plastic fun, but she has an appeal whether you hate or love her.
I have nothing against Barbie. Even though she was originally created for little girls to play dress up with, she has affected adults lives more than kids. Not only ‘cos those kids grow up with Barbie as part of their childhoods, she does knock deep nerves of what our world creates on ideals and even if she wasn’t in the picture, creating ideals is a human fault not a plastic toy’s.

Anyway, Barbie is fun and so is all her merchandise. Now, there is a new Barbie on the block called Tokidoki Barbie. She was created by Simone Legno for the famous Japanese brand TokiDoki.
Also, TokiDoki Barbie has tattoos! She’s pretty hot and I like her pink hair. Best thing of all, she isn’t actually aimed at kids this time. Her inked little body, sultry stare and cheesy fashion is indeed aimed at adults. She comes at a steep price too and she has a pet dog covered in cactus suit called Bastardino (perhaps an Italian cross breed?). Clearly Barbs has gone all hardcore. As she is aimed at all lovers of pop culture, I think this one definitely reflects our tacky wannabe celeb culture rather than trying to set any standards…cos clearly her standards have dropped as you can see by her outfit and styling.

Well now that this new version of Barbs is out, we can only wait for Ken. I wonder what his tramp stamps will be about or his fashion, ‘cos let’s face it…Ken has always had shitty style and outfits. Poor guy…
