For her approaching 5th birthday my granddaughter was asked by my sister what she wants for her birthday and she blurted "Barbie doll". Oh, this granddaughter of mine have had real Barbie dolls as well imitation Barbies but where are they now? They are either lost or mangled. The real ones given to her on her previous birthdays just disappeared while the fake Barbies already have broken extremeties and are no longer playable. I remember her having Brats and mermaid dolls. She brought all of them to school last year and came home without them. They got stolen by other kids. So.
