TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS...

she's taken a vow of silence.

with your other dolls, replace the toner cartridge in the laser
printer, coordinate a re-org and a move, and order airline
tickets for Director Ken.

Temp Barbie:

This smartly dressed, intelligent, hard-working and enthusiastic
Barbie is ready to go right out of the box, but usually goes

why they bought her. Pull the string on her back and she'll stuff
envelopes indefinitely, all the while wondering why she got a
liberal arts degree. Comes with mini-resume, and mini-filing

The recent announcement that Mattel and the producers of
"Baywatch" have joined forces to create Baywatch Barbie
came as no surprise. After all, both companies have made
millions off airheads with flawless skin, Malibu tans and
synthetic, molded breasts. If 'Baywatch Barbie' sells well,
other Barbie/TV tie-ins seem certain to follow. Here's some
possibilities:

Melrose Place Barbie:

Skipper and the rest of the gang live rent-free. Other accessories
include a bottle of vodka, silk sheets, and an warrant for arrest.

Dr. Barbie, Medicine Woman:

what conditioner to use out on the Plains and how to take care
of their nails while shoeing a horse.

She's on the run after 30 years of crime against feminism..

Sally Jesse Raphael Barbie:

Push a button on her back and this Barbie actually speaks!
Hold your very own talk show with topics like how tough math

She faces the same troubling issues as regular teens who
don't have huge wardrobes, perfect bods, pools, and ponies.

Roseanne Barbie:

The dark side of the American dream is explored with this doll,
which shows what happened after Barbie graduated from high
school, married too young and ate too much.
