Fran Jurga at The Jurga Report riffed about the news that Mattel had created a Kentucky Derby Barbie.
Fran wants to know, Why not backstretch Barbie? She certainly would appeal to edgier little girls who would be insulted by a foofy fashion doll. After all, Barbie has sported fashions appropriate to many different careers in her 50 years.
But I say, why not fit both needs — for personal empowerment and fashion-forward dreams. And I have just the equestrian in mind.
Or is this a good idea after all? Let’s mull this over together.
