#Barbie's proportions brought to life: 5'9" 110lbs 39" bust, 18" waist, 33"hips.
I really believed, and still do, that dolls for little girls and boys should be wonderful to hold, soft and easy to cuddle; not like Barbie and Ken more like Annie and Andy.
I thought that children interacting with dolls helped them in the long run to be loving and caring adults and parents. Even though my daughters didn't like my decision, I think my philosophy proved me right; my daughters are loving caring adults and parents.
