This Christmas, my daughters acquired the entire earth.
Anyway, the count was:
3 official Barbies- one being the brilliant self spraying umbrella Barbie- perfect for ruining those pesky TV sets and CD players. 1 Sugarplum Princess Barbie with action hips. 2 Kari dolls, Barbie's art-chick friend. 1 Giant Barbie head. 1 Barbie make-up book with built-in make-up kit. 1 Kelly Mermaid adventure kit (Even MESSIER than the Umbrella Barbie! YES!)
Overall, it was great Christmas. What did y'alls kids get?
BArbieMania filled the DrOp Household as well. To wit, my daughter got:
Cool School Barbie Kelly's RollerCoaster playground 4 Kelly Club Dolls Starlight Fairie Barbie Nutcracker Barbie Nutcracker Ken Marzipan and the Candy Sleigh The Barbie Nutcracker movie Barbie Magic KeyHouse Barbie Jam and Glam Tour Bus
UGH. I think I have an entire civilization in the kids' toyroom now.
I only know that I can change; everything else just stays the same.
Oh man! I'm glad you reminded me. My oldest got the comically named Nutcracker Ken also with the swivel-hipped Sugarplum Princess Barbie. My mom got ME the incredibly weird and terrifying Dallas Cowboy Nutcracker. My youngest ripped the arms off of that one immediately.
Haven't seen him around here for 1656 days (The W). Hmm, his last column for 411 was right around the same time (411mania.com). I guess I should email him and see what he's got to say about that, if anything.
