I might be one of the only people in the world that has not seen the Barbie movie. I’m comfortable with that status.
My son said, “Hey pops, I know why Barbie dolls are called Barbie dolls. It’s because one of the dolls is named Barbie.”
This seemed like a weird proclamation but I thought about it for a minute. All of the Barbie dolls in our house are also Disney Princesses. They are named Jasmine and Cinderella. We don’t have any dolls named Barbie.
“You might not believe this but when I was a kid, all of the Barbie dolls were named Barbie…. I guess there were a couple of Skippers… but most of them were Barbie.”
“Do you mean Ariel used to be named Barbie?”
