“Like many moms of my era, I was one of those who righteously banned Barbie, the doll that launched a thousand women’s studies dissertations, on the grounds that we didn’t want our daughters’ role model to be a giddy shopaholic who said, “Math class is tough!” and had a figure that defied the laws of gravity……In the face of years of criticism, Nurse Barbie had turned into Doctor Barbie, Stewardess Barbie into Astronaut Barbie, with a host of multicultural friends. There was even Barbie for President 2004 in a trim red pantsuit with a Stars-and-Striped scarf. But somehow Barbie remains incurable pink and retro, because she is an icon, a Warhol painting, a Smithsonian exhibit… http://www.gosmithsonian.com/nightatthemuseummovie/” -- Nancy Gibbs TIME Feb. 20, 2006
