Just in time for Christmas!

Mattel introduces the newest innovation for aspiring's "Sucking Chest Wound Barbie!"

After the fairy tale ends, reality sets in...

This toy is labeled "A Fashion Fairy Tale" and there appears to be ties to a movie. Based on this particular doll, I'm assuming this fairy tale was written by the Brothers Grimm.

It seriously looks like her chest is exploding...and it gets worse. If you press her belt buckle, the open chest cavity lights up and emits music. (Like fireworks on her chest.) Here's a close-up - if you look closely, you'll see the lights in her chest.

I just do not understand this doll. But, that being said, I am 99.9% certain that if I was still 9 years old, I would HAVE to have one. (And yes, I was indeed standing in the toy aisle in Target taking photos of Barbie dolls with my cell phone!)

Speaking of when I was 9 years old...I don't remember my Barbies being quite this anorexic looking, do you?

For all of those that are wondering what I was doing in the toy aisle scrutinizing Barbies to begin with, it all started with a search for batteries. Since they've added the grocery section and redesigned the store, I can't find anything anymore! I stumbled upon the toys after the "Twilight" Barbies caught my eye.

Oh! Did you see the Twilight Alice Barbie? Mars is always sending me cell phone pix from Target of the Twilight Dolls -- and the re-issued Peaches n' Cream Barbie (which was my favorite Barbie in the early 80s - and I still have her dress)!

And I always scoop out the Barbie aisle even when I'm not looking for batteries or lost. ;-)

"Scope." I "scope" out the Barbie aisle.

Wow, you are right. Barbie does look thinner (and her boobs look smaller) than I remember.

Jill - they only had the Jacob, Edward and Victoria Twilight dolls. And I had the Peaches and Cream Barbie too - loved that ruffly peach dress!

Fluffycat - definitely slimmer all around...looks anorexic to me now.
