Barbie Beauty Salon Commercial


It is just amazing how many accessories Barbie has had over the years. I mean she is just one character. Can you imagine if they put this much effort into say Han Solo or GI-Joe’s Gung-Ho? I know Barbie had friends and their was always Ken, but I am not sure I could play with just one toy over and over again. Barbie needs a posse to grab my interest and she needs guns and swords. Oh her crew could be like the assassins from Kill Bill. That would be slick.

    Because Barbie is just one toy is the reason there are so many accessories. She needs new gadgets to keep her interesting. I had a wicked cool station wagon that towed a horse trailer…Dallas and Midnight rode in the trailer, of course…I had the pool with slide, a three-story house with working elevator, etc. So many cool things to do.

    My Barbie was also friends with a doll named Darci.

    Darci was freakishly over-sized compared to Barbie. About an inch or so taller and proportioned more like an average woman…though I think Darci’s profession was officially “model.” Barbie always mocked Darcy for her huge feet…they could never share shoes.

    But Darci had an awesome white one-piece bathing suit with a lacy cut-out in the middle. It came with a white lacy wrap with a satin tie. You could tie the wrap around Darci’s waist when she was feeling modest, or you could tie it around her neck to give he a super-hero-in-cape look. Barbie was totally jealous.
