Barbie vs. Darth Vader

I am not really obsessed with Barbie--my posting to my journal was an art project. But I was as a kid.

I played with my 35 Barbies--being blonde, my favorite was actually Spanish Barbie--who had the envied long black shining straight hair that I wanted so much. My sister was four years older than me so basically I cramped her style. When I couldn't play with my friends, I was always stuck playing with my brother.

It was the late 70s and he had Star Wars everything. Since he refused to play with my barbies, I brought Barbie into his world. Barbie was easily crushed in the Death Star Trash Compacter. Barbie would go head first into his X-fighter toy (or was in Y-Fighter--you choose a chromasone) and sail among the stars in a ball gown with her butt sticking out. Or even better, I would grab Barbie by her legs and bash Darth Vader. Vader may have had the force on his side but Barbie was about 3 times as big. She was an amazon.

In fact, I dubbed the game: Barbie Amazons on the Moon (why the moon? I don't know).

My brother soon told me that I was too annoying to play with him. He was a spoilsport.

*chuckles* I had a NASA Barbie, she coulda lent her helmet to your moon amazons. ;D She also had glow in the dark moon rocks! Wooo!
I had Malibu Christie, the original Happy Family and Dawn's friend, Dale doll. I used to play "Queen of Outer Space" with my dolls - it's a cheesy 50s sci-fi movie starring Zsa Zsa Gabor and they played it ever other weekend where we lived. Of course, the movie takes place on VENUS (obviously before they knew Venus was hotter than H---!)
