a daughter-in-law is passing along all the stories of her new husband and his siblings as children :-)
Daughter and her friends used to play with Barbies for a time. Barbie seemed to always be in peril. I would find her tied up awaiting, I was told, rescue from Ken. Not sure what Ken was doing but rescuing Barbie was not high on his agenda. I started calling this phenomena "Barbies in Bondage".
Then poor Barbie fell into the hands of her twin brother and his friends, all part of the Neighborhood Tribe. Barbie was tied to a rocket and launched into space. Not sure how far she went up but she came down with evidence of her perilous journey.
Barbie lived out her days in the Haunted House we set up at Halloween.
