The Barbie Bubble is going to burst! Sell now!!

Thankfully my portfolio is diversified. I expect my Tamagotchis to go up in value in the coming months.

It's funny how Barbie collectors look exactly like I picture Barbie collectors looking.

This shit makes me glad I take all my toys out of the packaging and actually play with them.
@Dragon Sound - very much so.

I hope that guy wasn't married to the woman he was sitting next to. If so, she'll have to deal with a lot more than his doll collection...

39-21-33 indeed. Also 1:26 is a weird case of Barbie narcissism.

If the stock market crashes, at least you have your beautiful dolls. And your Malibu Woodrow mustache.

I too can join the (literal) thousands of others who collect these plastic self-esteem destroyers??!??

Say it ain't so!

Was that an Ashley Wilkes Ken in the very beginning? OH MY!

Who wouldn't want a 50-year-old 8-inch piece of plastic shaped like a young woman?

I'm mortified to say that as a kid, I met Marl. My mother was a Barbie collector and made a significant down-payment on a house with her ...uh...investments.
