Homeschool Barbieā„¢

Need a Christmas gift for your sheltered home schooled children? Well now there's Homeschool Barbieā„¢!

Homeschool Barbieā„¢ is just the toy for your precious little angel. She has a fresh, clean complexion and simply styled hair to show forth her natural beauty. And because she loves her family so much, she keeps right on smiling as she rises with the sun and works until long after they're in bed, and she has the eyes to prove it. (Coffeemaker and mood enhancers not included.)

Homeschool Barbieā„¢ comes modestly attired in a denim jumper with an embroidered t-shirt for warm months and a turtleneck for winter. And no bare legs and flip-flops for this doll--her legs and feet are properly covered with dark tights and comfortable shoes. As an added bonus, Homeschool Barbie'sā„¢ underclothes are painted on. So, even when your daughters are interrupted at play, your boys won't be scandalized by the sight of a naked Barbieā„¢.

As homeschooling has grown in popularity, there's a Barbieā„¢ to meet every need. The Protestant Christian version comes with a miniature Bible (the complete King James version!) and will recite Scripture verses when her hand is pressed. Catholic Homeschool Barbieā„¢ wears a crucifix, chapel veil, and can lead your children in praying the Rosary (in your choice of Latin or English) when her hands are placed together. Secular Homeschool Barbieā„¢ comes complete with a grain mill and Birkenstocksā„¢, and shares her favorite home remedies & recipes with a pat on the back. All three dolls include a variety of Math curricula with manipulatives and chalkboards with tiny real chalk!

And what would a teacher be without students? Children for Homeschool Barbieā„¢ are available in a variety packs of seven girls & boys ranging in age from four to ten, in your choice of matching or non-matching outfits. (Cloth-diapered infants & toddlers sold separately)

Additionally, you can purchase a Homeschool Barbieā„¢ Dreamhouseā„¢, with a whopping 12 rooms and without the nuisances of cable hookups or internet access. (Barn and livestock sold separately) For transportation, there's the Big White Barbieā„¢ Van, which seats up to 15 in comfort and safety. (Carseats not included)

To further enrich your children's play, Homeschool Kenā„¢ is also available. He's ready to jump ship, um leave for work in his coat and tie with briefcase in hand. He says such helpful phrases as, "I'm sure whichever curriculum you choose is fine," and "When's dinner, honey?" when his hand is squeezed. Caution: over use of Ken's voice may cause the Dreamhouse door to lock him out.

Watch for Unschooling Barbieā„¢ due out in Spring of 2014, or whenever the design team feels like finishing her.

Lol, I agree, and I love the 'mood enhancer and coffee maker not included' lol

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

Does Homeschool Barbie come in a non-vavavoom figure?  After all, popping out all those kids does tend to ruin a girl's figure.

I kinda wish there was an add-on, like a sign that reads 'please play w/me I don't know how to socialize with others' lol

Maybe they should add a pajama clad Skipper as her student?
