Mattel is now selling a Barbie doll that some are calling the "drag queen" Barbie.
The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll is not officially a cross-dresser, but was created by designer Phillipe Blond, who is a cross-dresser himself reports the Daily Mail.

We forget that the current Barbie was once as shocking.
Dolls used to be baby-dolls for little girls pretending to be mothers.
WHAT ABOUT "CROCODILE BARBIE"???
Yep, the old frog in boiling water thing.
`She combed her hair with a wagon wheel
And died of a toothache in her heel.’
It’s all clear to me now: Git outta the way for Ol’ Deb Wasserman-Schultz.
Maybe Blond Blond Diamond Barbie can let herself be abused and controlled by Fifty Shades Ken.
Isn’t that the Barbara Streisand Barbie?
That may only be one word, I'm not sure. I also have no idea what they may be worth.
That same Barbie can be used for so many things.
San Fran Barbie
Jane Fonda Barbie
Code Pink Barbie
The list goes on...
-lol- ... good one... :)
Next for Mattel, the ideal companion for Drag Queen Barbie: Bull Dyke Barbie.
a classic that should be retired immediately
Don’t they know it would be “DRAG QUEEN” KEN!!!
Barbie is a FEMALE.
The barbie evolved from male sex toy/gag gift in Germany.
It was no surprise when the sexualization of chlldren started with Kinsey and Hugh Hefner. Corruption of children is necessary to collapse a culture. John Dewey took the Schools-—to destroy that institution in the 30’s—and by a generation parents would fall for the Barbie for their little girls-—because they were so ignorant on ethics and knowledge of history because of public school education. (De-Christianization).
Way back in 1963, when I was in college, my girlfriend commented that Barbie dolls were teaching little girls all the wrong things. How innocent they were then, compared to now!
NO!!!! Seriously, if she’s got all of them and they are worth a bit, then DON’T SELL THEM. Give them to your granddaughters as long as they’re old enough to understand their value, and how (honestly) hard it was some years to even find one of them to buy. The Christmas Barbie and Holiday Barbies especially can be worth a lot - and could be worth so much more in years to come. Besides that, I can’t tell you how heartbroken I was when my Mom passed and my sister took all of her doll collection, not realizing how truly antique and expensive they were and proceeded to “fix” some of them with Super Glue!!! (Which is why I say hang on to them until you know your G-daughters will understand how to take care of them properly)
She knows I was kidding her about selling them. I found this on the net:
“There were no Holiday Barbie’s before 1988. This Barbie was the most limited edition released in the Holiday Collection. There were four Holiday Barbie dolls released that Holiday season per toy store, and caused an enormous problem for shoppers. This Doll, if in box and in mint condition, can be worth anywhere from $1,000-$1,500+. However, if you have the entire original Holiday Barbie Collection, original being key because they started making them again, but the ones made after 2000 are not really worth anything. Anyway, if you have 1988-2000 the entire boxed mint collection can be worth roughly $20,000...more if you have the 1988 doll. My estimates are a little rough, because though I have the whole collection, I haven’t gotten quotes on it in roughly seven or eight years, so the 1988 doll and the collection could both be worth more by now. Hope this helped.”
Yep, she has the 1988 also, I suppose it’s “mint” condition, it’s still in its unopened box. I just counted 42 boxed Barbies on shelves in the room I’m sitting in and she has more in two other rooms. Either some are duplicates or more likely they are not all Christmas/Holiday Barbies but they are all boxed Barbies and she has at least one Christmas Barbie for every year they have been made, I know because I bought them for her. I really thought she started collecting prior to 1988 though.
I seem to remember more than one year I had a tough time finding them. The trick is buy them as soon as they hit the shelves in stores.
"I said GET ME ANOTHER BEER, DAMNIT."
Of course not, Bendy. She's... from North Carolina.
Head Lice Barbie = hair completely cut off
FrankenBarbie = covered in "stitches" drawn on with a pen
(my fav) Dead Barbie = THIS was supposed to be Sleepover Barbie whose eyes opened and closed by using a warm washcloth over them. After 3,859 times of doing that, the eyes didn't "open" anymore. No matter. She became Dead Barbie and was used for the occasional funeral to add a touch of interest to their game. Ken was dragged out to play the grieving boyfriend.
btw, this was also the daughter who, when she was 2-3 years old, had an imaginary friend she didn't get along with. at all. fought constantly. I remember putting this "girl" in time out, telling daughter her friend couldn't come play at our house if she can't follow the same rules, etc.
ahhhhh.......good times, good times. God blessed us immensely by making is possible for me to stay home with the kids...and they were crazy, exhausting times, but the best in our lives. :)
Ol’ Deb Tuckerman-Schultz...LOL. How many people know that song?
“And her eyes stuck out and her nose stuck in,
And her underlip hangs over her chin.”
We blew Barbies up with firecrackers. Good times indeed.
Remember Trailer Trash Barbie? LOL
Haha! They better add some thickness in that waist and a whole lotta junk to that trunk.
Fake is tacky, and a dress covered in “paste” diamonds is tacky.
