PS look at how hot Midge's husband is! His name is probably something like Butch or Hoss, but he is gooooodlookin'.
Okay, this was my favorite Barbie: Babysitter Skipper! She was everything I wanted to be when I was 6:
-wearing an entirely fleece outfit
-literally crawling with babies
Ah, Beast Ken. He was great. My only complaints were that the Beast mask was really only conducive to one storyline and Ken's human hair was far too long--of course resulting in a disastrous haircut given by yours truly.
Belle was also great...I loooved the combination of Disney and Barbie. She came with two outfits: sassy bookworm-peasant girl jumper and sexy golden lovespell gown. The elbow-length gloves this came with were a B to put on, but they were so worth it.
Close up of Belle: she was so "Sailor Moon"
Troll Barbie is the epitome of nineties-era toys. And fashion.
And finally, Pet Pals Skipper: the self-proclaimed "cool teen sister of Barbie," Skipper came with her own dog (which my own real-life dog later chewed up), doggy supplies, and the most epic outfit the mortal world has ever seen--acid wash, neon, weird layers, giant crimped hair, and a Warhol print of Skipper's puppy. Outstanding.
Well, there you have it, some of my closest friends*.
