I spent countless hours with my Barbies when I was young. I would imagine these complex stories and play them out with my cast of barbies.  In reflection, they were a great toy for me. They were tools that let my imagination soar and fostered my creativity with various story plots. The down side, where my nemesis has always been my son’s legos my poor mom probably has scars from puncture wounds from my Barbie’s extensive shoe collection which were strewn on my bedroom floor.  I saw this video and couldn’t help but smile.
