The original Barbie doll commercial. First of all $3.00, wow! Secondly, listen to the song. The song is all about how beautiful and thin Barbie is. It talks about her wonderful clothes. Have you heard about how Barbie was an important toy because she was an astronaut, a gymnast, a pilot, and held other occupations that were predominantly occupied by men? Barbie has done these things, but this is her start, and there is no mention of Barbie working, and certainly not in men's fields.Seems Barbie had her struggles with gender stereo types also.
