i'm a barbie girl

yesterday, while scrolling through instagram, i saw a picture posted by a friend of the new, more realistic barbie (pictured above).

although, as a kid, i never really thought about barbie's body and whether or not i had it, it is refreshing to see a well-loved toy of children bring a far more average-looking body to stores, rather than the unattainable body that has been all over the toy aisles the past decade.*

*if you research how barbie's body has changed, you will see that through the decades the figure changed to the current ideal body type.
