Have you seen? They want to give Barbie a "realistic" look because she influences young girls so much. What do they do with all their old dolls? Play "healthy(thicker) and anorexic Barbie"?

Healthy and anorexic in the same sentence?

well, one's thicker and they always said Barbie's state would be sickly if she were scaled to size...

I think the realistic one looks like a dude with a chicks head.

EDIT: Who'd have thought I'd upset so many people with my OPINION. Seriously folks, I can think what I want.  I've gotten quoted so many times with people who have an issue with what I think. You don't think it, fine. But from this angle, it looks like a flat chested, stocky dude with nice calves. And nothing about your harping is gonna change how I see it.

Oh I see what you did. I thought you meant healthy and anorexic from the skinny one alone. I was like um no lol.

I'm overweight, but still like the "skinny" Barbie. But it could just be nostalgia. Lol
