Barbie!


I haven't felt much like creating art lately...maybe I've got the February blahs. The recent snow certainly hasn't helped matters much.

So, instead of posting about art today I'm going to share a few pics from our weekend visit to the Children's Museum of Indianapolis...and the new Barbie exhibit.


Now, let me start off by saying that I'm not the biggest Barbie fan on the planet. I may have owned one or two barbies as a kid, but I was much more interested in building birdhouses and working in the garage with my dad than playing with dolls. My sister was the barbie girl. She had the super cool barbie house with the elevator that really moved (when you pulled the string).



And when Ella was born I swore that she would never play with barbies...after all should little girls really play with super skinny, scantily clad little women? I know they have doctor barbie now and veterinarian barbie now, but these dolls can't possibly be good for a girl's self-esteem. Of course that philosophy went out the door in about 5 minutes...right after a very kind relative picked up a trunk-load of barbies at a garage sale and lovingly gifted them to Ella. I was fighting a losing battle...I conceded defeat.

Okay, now that I've said that...I absolutely LOVED the Barbie exhibit. Maybe it was the nostalgia...maybe it was all the cool activities...maybe it was barbie vault full of priceless dolls...maybe it was just me, but it was awesome!

Oh and the girls enjoyed it too! There were life-size barbies, barbies from the 50s through today. Who knew they made so many different barbies! Then of course there were Skippers and Ken dolls and god knows who else. They also had a runway where you could dress in the latest fashions, mix the music and take photos...and you could design your own fashions too.


So we spent a fun-filled Saturday with Barbie and her pals...what a great day!
