I'm too old for Barbies. My mama took a little doll and made me a storybook doll set when I was about seven years old. She made dresses for Cinderella, with one raggedy dress and then a nice shiny gown, a Red Riding Hood cape, and a few more. Those are the only two I really remember. I haven't thought of that in years. By the time Barbie came out I was playing with my real kids.
This too shall pass.
It may pass like a kidney stone,
But it will pass.
