I've been loving this thread from a different perspective...
My company makes Minikins, which are Barbie-sized (but only
in height!) Minikins have beautifully sculpted, diverse and
realistic faces. Even better, they transform into easy-to-use
marionettes...imagine the possibilities!
Check them out at www.playstages.com.
I'd be happy to donate a selection to the effort,

Subject: Barbie ideas.....
I too would like to get involved.....but I hate Barbies!!! All I have
even done with them, is throw them out.....when my girls got them etc.
They are too small and awkward to dress......and I hate to see that
co. get our $$$$$..couldn't we get a better bigger doll that wouldn't look
like a BIMBO no matter what we do.?.....ok, so I hate Barbies.
