Oh, Look! X-Files’ Mulder and Scully Gets The Barbie Doll Treatment!

I am not going to lie. I am a little out of touch with Barbie dolls. I never knew Barbie is not only diverse, but it also has pop culture covered too. I though the Star Trek Barbie dolls were one-off thing. Apparently, I was wrong. Barbie dolls have a bunch of others, including Wonder Woman, Doctor Who Thirteenth Doctor, Catwoman, Hunger Games Katniss Everdeen and now, even our favorite alien investigators, Mulder and Scully have gotten the Barbie Dolls treatment.

A Dirt Bike Motor Turned A Barbie Ford Mustang Into A Drift Beast

Well, this one is going to make Ken looks like a wuss (not that he isn’t anyways). The dudes over at YouTube channel Grind Hard Plumbing Co has turned a Power Wheels Barbie Ford Mustang into a crazy ride that will most definitely win the world famous plastic doll with unrealistically proportional body shape the fastest doll ever.

Mattel Celebrates 50 Years Of Star Trek With New Star Trek Barbie Dolls

50 years. That’s how long since the first Star Trek series hit the tube on NBC and it forever changed how we see sci-fi and beam me up, Scotty becomes an acceptable expression.

Lammily Marks Lets You Add Cellulite, Scars and Even Stretch Marks to Normal Body ‘Barbie’

Do you remember the beautiful, real-life proportions ‘barbie’ called Lammily? I am sure you do. A doll that departs from the norm of the fantasy encapsulated toy world, or more specifically a doll modeled after a real-life 19 y.o. girl-next-door, will most certainly stand out from among the eerily perfectly shaped toy person and will forever etch deeply in our memory.

Unlike dear Barbie who live life enjoying dreamhouse camper, glam pool, and dazzling collection of wardrobe, Lammily will be treated to more down-to-earth apparels and now, it will have stickers too.

Lammily: Barbie With Normal Body

if we were to do a ‘weirdest things on the Internet’, the Lammily: Barbie With Normal Body will no doubt be on top of our list, but in a good way. all this while, our society has been shaped and psyched to believe a woman has to be ridiculously slim and dressed in expensive clothing to be beautiful – thanks in part to the misconception stemmed from the myriad of advertisements, entertainment and even toys that we are constantly being exposed to. while nothing can be done about the former two media, one man by the name of Nickolay Lamm decided to challenge the status quo of the latter, by showing the world how a Barbie doll would look like if she had the CDC measurements of an average 19 year-old girl in America and so he did, and his 3D-printed average Barbie immediately went viral in July, last year.
