Quick Hit: Barbie even more unrealistic now than in 1990

January 9, 2011

Also apparently less modest. Though that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    I like that the new Barbie is more proportional, but it figures that instead of increasing her bottom half (and perhaps, gasp, waist) to match her 90s upper half, they decreased the upper half overall. I think her head is now officially the size of at least 75% of her torso. Big-headed dolls are pretty standard, however.

    I agree with bigliberty – while the proportions have improved and the body shape is something that some humans might actually be able to achieve, they’ve made her smaller and her head bigger. Bizarre.
