Many of us have Barbie as part of our upbringing. New crochet and knit patterns featuring human-size and doll-size patterns. To escape the real world and jump into a fantasy imagination world. Imagine different careers and lives the doll may have versus our reality.
As a child growing up with an older sister, the Barbie Dream Camper was a huge hit for her. I played along with her and also several childhood friends. In kindergarten, I would dress up as a mom, pushing a buggy with a doll. I would walk around and around the room and my teacher would smile graciously at me as I walked around. Reality kicks in older but imagination and more is important for comprehension of world issues.
