You can only order one of their dolls when you buy a dress. You have to send in a pictures from the “princes” who the dress is for and the doll’s face and hair colour will be designed to look just like the photo. The dress will be drawn and decorated in the same style as the dress that you are purchasing.

The doll is $399.00 what looks a lot of money for a fabric. But if yu are buying $9000 dresses for you kids I don’t think that  is a problem 😉

Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie

The trailer looks very interesting and from tomorrow the you can see the documentary on Hulu.

In her 59 years, Barbie has become a fashion icon, a lightning rod and a topic among feminists. Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, featuring newly discovered footage and unprecedented access to the inner workings of a toy giant during Barbie’s biggest reinvention, surveys 60 years of women in popular culture through the lens of this 11.5 inch, Zelig-like plastic icon. Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Roxane Gay, Peggy Orenstein, Mattel insiders and cultural historians, the documentary reveals, through both funny and fascinating archival material, and fly-on-the-wall observations of Barbie’s current architects, the progression and regression in the fight for gender equality. Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, premiering April 27th, 2018, is produced, written and directed by Andrea Nevins. Cristan Crocker also serves as producer. Azin Samari edited.
