I’m in a real jam today. It’s Barbie’s 51st birthday, and I’m still stuck on what to give her. You know she’s pretty picky about gifts, and I don’t want to get on her bad side by not thinking this through carefully.
She’s gone through so many phases in her life. Early on, she favored beach wear and accessories. Then came the formal phase and everything had to be perfect. Things got more casual after that, but still, you had to put some thought into her birthday. It’s always so much easier to shop for Skipper, don’t you think?
These days, she’s stood the test of time. Other toys have come and gone, but Barbie remains. A billion dollar a year business, with an army of 800 million clone dolls around the world. Barbie is not a woman to trifle with.
Happy Birthday Barbie!
