Flash Dance Barbie--It looks nothing like the actor. I hate raw, fraying edges on "collector" doll fashions.
Louboutin Shoe Pack--Nine pairs of all-plastic Barbie shoes went from $50 to $70. WTF??? That is absolutely insane. $50 was ridiculous to start with.
Sometimes I wonder how detached from culture I really am. Are the Barbie Basics really that shocking? They seem like standard fashion magazine content to me. And I really, sincerely doubt that $20 Basics are popular with kids, while Mattel has to coat the $10 dolls in neon colors, glitter, metallic foil, and then package them in a holographic foil box.
