From the Baltamore Sun comes this inspiring story about Barbie dolls.
Barbie’s turning 50 and having a mid-life crisis. The Los Angeles Times reports that Mattel is rolling out a tattooed Barbie, and opening a new Barbie megastore in Shanghai. (She’s not just tattooed, but comes with a tattoo gun. I’m just thrilled. Here’s a picture.)
Barbie has also joined Twitter, reporting recently that she “is back together with her boyfriend!” (I must be behind, because I didn’t know Ken was on the outs. Or maybe it isn’t Ken.)
