Pregnant Barbies are creepy.

I was shopping for the little kids in my family the other day and I got to thinking...

What did I used to ask Santa for?

Then I decided to share with you all a few of my Christmas wish list items. The photos are in order of age progression. And I'm sure Dad can even come up with some more because even though he says they were from Santa, I'm pretty sure he bought them.


Anything Barbie. But Especially Barbie's dream house. Speaking of Barbie, remember these...


Preggo Barbie. Had to have one. And if you Google Pregnant Barbie, seriously disturbing images come up. Just saying.



My tomboy stage. Loved anything Matchbox car.


Not really sure when this was big, but I know it was because Macaulay Culkin had one in Home Alone.



Dumbest toy ever. But I just had to have Stretch Armstrong

Before IPods and MP3s. My first ever CD was Celine Dion and I still have it.

Okay, out of morbid curiosity I went and googled pregnant barbies. Yeah, creepy! Barbie and Ken in a bubble bath cracked me up, though.

Loving your retro Christmas list. I used to type mine up and think I still have some saved on an old hard drive.. must look! Also.. preggo Barbie?! Totally don't remember this. Hooray, I guess?

Its really weird but there wasn't a toy I ever wanted... I was always just happy to be outside playing regardless of the weather... there is so much I want now :D. I had never heard of pregnant barbie either.

Pregnant Barbies? Did they come with a book on the birds and the bees? Geez. My son had a matchbox car wash. Thought it was the greatest. I think he had the same cd player too.

Amy said...

yes!! Hahah I was obsessed with dolls and Barbies. I always wanted one of those Jeeps too. Every Christmas I would ask for one, and every Christmas I didn't get one. I plan on getting my future kids one.

There's a preggo Barbie?! That is upsetting on so many levels! I used to ask for micro machines. Now I would settle for sanity...

becca said...

you reminded me why i never wanted a barbie doll preggo barbie creepy. but i do remember stretch armstrong he was way cool

Dad said...

For the record...with three daughters I spent more money on Barbie than any other woman I've known! I'm pretty sure Barbie is a hooker...she has a dream house, jeep, Corvette...and no visible means of support...oh, and she was doing GI Joe behind Ken's back...cause chicks dig a man in uniform!

Seems to me that you were a lot cheaper to shop for back then JM...maybe we should do a retro Christmas?

ib said...

It was inevitable. Ken was going to knock Barbie up sooner or later. The question is, how did he do it? If I recall, he is minus junk. Osmosis?

hed said...

I wanted a Talkboy so freaking bad after watching Home Alone 2. So...does the pregnant Barbie really have a removable fetus like it shows in Google?

Jumble Mash said...

Yes, pregnant Barbie really did have a removable fetus. You could take the baby out and then put a flat belly back on Barbie. I haven't seen the preggo Barbies around for years, but I promise you, my sister and I both owned one. LOL. And no it didn't come with a handbook about the birds and the bees. ALSO, hahahahaha at all of you that went and Googled it. Told ya it was creepy, but I love that you actually did it.

Dad-No retro Christmas, but thanks :)

did you just warn us about googling "pregnant barbie" to see how many of us would go do it? ('cause if so, add my name to the list!)

Mrs. Hyde said...

Okay...I had no idea Barbie was ever pregnant and I could have gone my whole life without that information, tyvm. I am, however, going to google that shit.

Your dad is hilarious. Barbie HAS to sleep around on Ken because everyone knows Ken is gay. They have an arrangement. Have my doubts about GI Joe, too, actually. Don't ask, don't tell.

Meg O. said...

OMG! Talkboy and Stretch Armstrong! YESSSS!!!!

ib said...

People, Ken is not gay. It does not sport a pork sword. It is neither male nor female. It, is all It is. Of course, this is my humble opinion.

LOL You guys crack me up. And yeah I warned you not to google it so you would. :) I'm a stinker.

Mrs. Hyde said...

ib- did you see the episode of Nip/Tuck where the hubby and wifey were having plastic surgery to make themselves look like Barbie and Ken? After 'Barbie' had her nipples removed, 'Ken' realized he was gay. 'Nuff said.

ib said...

Mrs. Hyde, I must admit that Nip/Tuck is not a show I watch. I believe that Ken wants to hammer away at Barbie but it was not given the proper tools to do so. Hell, it doesn't even have a piece to pee with. I'm sure if Ken was given the option, it would have opted for the proper gear.
