5. Bunion Barbie
Years of disco dancing in stiletto heels have definitely taken their toll on Barbie's dainty arched feet. Soothe her sores with the pumice stone, then slip on soft terry mules.

6. No More Wrinkles Barbie
Erase those pesky crow's feet and lip lines with a tube of Skin Sparkle Spackle, from Barbie's own line of exclusive age-blasting cosmetics.

7. Soccer Mom Barbie
All that experience as a cheerleader is really paying off as Barbie dusts off her old high school megaphone to root for Babs and Ken, Jr. With mini-van in robin's egg blue or white, and cooler filled with doughnut holes and fruit punch.

8. Mid-life Crisis Barbie
It's time to ditch Ken. Barbie needs a change, and Bruce (her personal trainer) is just what the doctor ordered,along with Prozac. They're hopping in her new red Miata and heading for the Napa Valley to open a B&B. Comes with real tape of "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do".

9. Single Mother Barbie
There's not much time for primping anymore! Ken's shacked up with the Swedish au pair in the DreamHouse and Barbie's across town with Babs and Ken, Jr. in a fourth floor walkup. Barbie's selling off her old gowns and accessories to raise rent money. Complete garage sale kit included.

10. Recovery Barbie
Too many parties have finally caught up with the ultimate party girl. Now she does 12 steps instead of dance steps! Clean and sober, she's going to meetings religiously. Comes with little copy of the Big Book and six-pack of diet Coke.


11. Post Menopausal Barbie
Poor Barbie wets her pants when she sneezes, forgets where she puts things, and cries a lot. She is sick and tired of Ken sitting on the couch watching the tube, clicking through the channels. Comes with Depends and
Kleenex. As a bonus this year, she comes with the book, "Getting in Touch with Your Inner Self".
