Raise your hand if you remember this one! Oh, wait, but be careful that raising your arm might make you *cough* “grow”!
Can you believe this was approved to be a childs toy? Can you believe that I had one? Oh, times were different weren’t they?! Look at that packaging “She’s two dolls in one for twice as much fun!” “Cute, little girl!” “Tall, curvy teenager!” Curvy eh? So, what exactly happens when you lift her arm? Well, she grows tall and curvy of course. Which means that her legs stretch and her waist gets slimmer and her chest…well..it pops out! Yessiree, puberty with the flip of an arm. Dang, that would have been SO MUCH simpler in reality! No pimples or headaches or mood swings or cramps. Just height and curves and boobs. Suh WEET – sign me up! There is something else that I now notice with the passage of time too. Check our her clothes. She came with one outfit for each stage of her life. But – aren’t they flip flopped? I mean, as a cute little girl she is wearing what looks like hot red go go boots and a pretty short mini skirt. Then the teen version is stuck in sensible white shoes and an ankle length skirt that ends up making her look like a picnic table! The only more ‘adult’ change in her clothes is the plunging neckline.
So how do you think this would go over in 2008? :-)
