Speaking of Barbie, my one year old daughter just "borrowed" the animation "Barbie in the Nutcracker" from a family we know. I was surprised to turn the cover over and see that Peter Martins and NYCB helped out with the choreography and the London Symphony Orchestra performed the score. Those lifts at the end sure make Sugar Plum look light as a feather (as always of course). :)

Well, my mother teaches Pre-k and during nap time, she plays classical or soothing music to help the four year olds sleep. On one of the cds is a song from the Nutcracker. When it came on, one of her little girls sat up and shreiks, "It's Barbie!" When my mother tried to explain to her that it was actually from the nutcracker, she refused to believe her, and she was still talking about it when her mother came to pick her up that afternoon.

I see no.7 in the series is a black ballerina. While Mattel could be accused of tokenism, they have gone where no UK ballet company has, to date. So well done!

What about boys?

And why don't we see Ken in white tights? Who will partner all those (*ahem*) lovely dresses, I mean ballerinas?

Barbie is cool, and it's not her fault I'm fat. My Barbie is an archaeologist and a surfer. Her knees don't bend, so I advised her not to take up ballet. It hurt her feelings at first, but now she's okay.

Well, she has a bathing suit, which is more conducive to surfing than archaeology, but high heels, which make standing on her surfboard difficult. However, she's a smart girl and she makes it all work.
