You know you're an icon when...

Whether you love Barbie or you hate her...
you have to admit she's an icon.







And, you know that a celebrity has reached iconic status
when he or she gets made into their very own Barbie Doll.

















And, the newest iconic Barbie this year?

Heidi Klum!





I loved Barbie has a child.
She was one of my best friends growing up.
I played out my creativity through her,
made up stories and had fun.

Did you have a childhood with Barbie?

I played with my sister's Barbies because I considered myself too cool to have my own Barbies.... and Barbie is a slut anyway..the things I caught her doing with Ken!!!!

Who is that second one?
Amazing how much that doll really does look like Heidi.

I did have Barbies and even a Barbie house but I don't think I played with her for a very long time.

I loved my barbies. And I also had a Sonny and Cher. Sonny's blue leisure suit dyed his "skin" blue. I had a Donny and Marie. Marie was the victim of my hair styling prowess.

But my girls. Could not give a rat's ass about Barbies. Can I say ass on your blog? :-)

Barbie was my favorite toy as a child. I had Skipper and a few Kens and a Midge doll, too! Found your blog through SITS.

Totally had a Barbie childhood. And I passed on that love to Light as well!

I soooooooooooooooo want that Elvis doll. I'm waiting for it to go on sale. I have a Rizzo one. I would have killed for the Carol Burnett but it never went on sale.
