Pregnant Barbie

13 Comments to Pregnant Barbie

  1. Why is this a “Jawdrop”? Pregnancy is a normal part of life. Little girls who have younger siblings experience their Mother’s pregnancy with amazement and anticipation. What is scandalous is that uber-right-wing hyper-religious Walmart refused to carry it.

  5. I thought Ken had no genitals. GI Joe either. Maybe Gary Coleman got lucky before his demise.

  7. It’s a Jaw Drop because her belly comes off and does not depict real pregnancy at all. That’s also why it was taken off the market.

  15. Why yes, it’s perfectly normal for a woman with no genitalia or nipples and a man with no genitalia or nipples to produce a child which forms, completely clothed with assorted accessories in a stomach that just pops off. I assume the child is also genitalia free.

    After all, there’s never anything like blood or pain or risk associated with pregnancy, and if you get tired of the baby, you just put it back in the pop off stomach, right? This is *totally* the way to teach kids the realities of life!

    For the record, I’m left wing and not religious. I’m just allergic to stupidity and Barbie has never been anything other than stupid, from her malformed “high heels only” feet on up to her vacant and empty stare, she’s flat out made of stupid.

  17. Oh yes, this is the Happy Family Midge. Caused quite the controversy when it came out. She’s got a wedding band on her finger and her husband, Alan, was also available, but mothers complained to Mattel about this pregnant doll, not wanting their kids to play with it. So they took it off the shelves and re-released it with just the baby and no pregnant stomach. The stomach is attached via magnets and pops off easily.

    That doll is worth a bundle; my mom must sold her entire set for like $300. If you don’t want it, I suggest selling it on eBay or Amazon, especially since those are the original clothes.

  19. I had this! I didn’t think it was weird at all! One of my favorite dolls.
    As for people saying the dolls have no genitals, are you suggesting that Mattel should have released anatomically correct conception dolls?

  21. I personally think the jaw drop is the creepy shrub covered hand holding the doll. Along with the fact it is just weird..

  23. I had this, also had her husband and the big brother, and the grandparents with their kitchen. Used a different set that I had from a baby sitter doll (came with crib) to use for the crib and such as well as extra accessories.

    This is no weirder then the older versions of the doll, considering that I have one somewhere that my grandma got me (this particular one is from the early 90s) where the stomach FLIPS AROUND to release the baby. It was a pain in the but and was hard to maneuver.

    As for if the doll is atomically correct or not, it is basically impossible to make a pregnancy/birth doll that would be correct and still be the normal size and not have a bunch of overly complicated things. The whole point of the doll was so that girls could play family, not to teach them how the maternity system worked. Heck, the food for the grandparent’s house changes color with ice water, that doesn’t happen in real life. And there aren’t mermaids that are real. It was actually a decent doll, it even has wedding bands on the couples’ hands… I never saw a problem with it.

  25. Oh, side note: The one I got, the underwear was painted onto the stomach as well, so it fit right, and the baby didn’t have a shirt… It had a little blanket, but the blanket didn’t fit in the stomach, so it just had a diaper painted on. There weren’t any clothes, just a blanket that was set to the side in the package.
