Barbie with a Brain

I made my first Brainy Barbie maybe 5 years ago.  I’ve only sold 5 or 6 of them but they always get attention at markets.  Many people laughed, “Barbie with a Brain, ha!” but I never thought of Barbie as being particularly stupid.  I had Doctor Barbie and other Barbie who did interesting things and I never acted out Barbie as a ditz, she was also doing a job.  Bratz on the other hand…

I never intended for my Brainy Barbie (or Barbie with a Brain) to be a commentary on the doll but just did it because I had a Barbie there, without a head and a brain there and just put the two together.  I like the way this doll creates discussion and how much people love the idea.
