Too many toys

The Kid decided it was time for her to de-clutter her room by getting rid of the multitudes of Polly Pocket, Barbie and Littlest Pet Shop toys. I'm all for de-cluttering. A cluttered house equals a cluttered mind. However I have no qualms about cluttering up someone else's house.


So I invited Karen of Ow, my angst and her lovely sister to come peruse the wares. There was lots of laughing and excitement and yelling 'No Sale!' if something unsavoury was found and then more laughing.
This was a 'No Sale' item...
Meet 'Scoliosis Barbie'!
Also known as 'Crunkin Barbie' or 'What up Barbie'......NO SALE!
I know she's posing topless on the stove. I was going for a ghetto industrial vibe for her photo shoot.

We had a good time ooh-ing and aah-ing over shoes and outfits and PREGNANT Barbie. The sisters went home happy. And I had an excuse for why I did not do a blog post yesterday. If you're upset that there wasn't one and you've been waiting I shall reward you now for your patience with this.....
The Kid gave her the rad urban do.

Say YES to the fun of de-cluttering!


  1. "crunkin" barbie. You're a scream. Loved the industrial backdrop too. Your girl was quite the amateur hairdresser, I must say. That doll is quite hideous now!

  2. OMG that's hilarious... scoliosis barbie :)
    I love decluttering. I'm in the middle of a move. I decluttered before the move, and I look forward to decluttering AGAIN as I unpack.
    Thanks for the laughs!

  3. dude, check out this link:

    it screams your name.

  4. Karen said dude. hehe

    Hey, that was fun. But that Barbie still gives me the willies. Which isn't fair to her I guess. She can't HELP that she's utterly disfigured. I mean seriously, who stands around like THAT?

  5. What the.....hahahhaha....I had no idea that they made dolls like that!
    Geesh I am soooo out of touch with kids toys.
    Is that a thong Scoliosis Barbie is wearing?

  6. @Karen Ya she never really did any alterations until later on in her Barbie-playing career. And that doll she was allowed to radically alter it because it was a freebie.
    And thanks for the job suggestion...I don't think I'm ready for that though

  7. @Sam Glad I could give you a laugh!

  8. @Aimee LMAO Yes poor Barbie...
