I wanna play

Do you still the remember the good old Barbie days? Did you ever get to play one? I remember I had loads of them when I was young. I had tons of Barbies, Skipper, Grandma Barbie, babies, pets, houses, groceries, cars, and all the paraphernalia you could ever think of - and of course Ken. But back in those days, I don't think I had any inclination that one day, I'd be one hot insatiable lesbian.

This is something else! As I was surfing the net, I came across
DYKEdoll, it's the first lesbian Barbie-like doll. Their first toy is named Bobbie Doll (neat huh) She's a 12-inch tall toy (no I am not advertising a vibrator nor a dildo here) she wears a leather jacket, muscle T-shirt and a tatoo. The dolls are the brainchild of New Yorker Stephanie Prod. The 36-year-old came up with the idea while writing her Masters thesis on the under-representation of lesbians in popular culture. The DYKEdoll figures will sell for $49.95 (about £28) each. But only people over 21 can buy the full package priced at $65 (£37).
Why such a price difference? This is where Bobbie Doll tops the other Barbie or Ken dolls, it actually includes accessories such as tiny leather harnesses and miniature vibrators. Yes, you read it right! Leather harnesses and miniature vibrators to tickle their fancies (no pun intended).

Bobbie – or Bobbie Rockabilly DYKEdoll, to give her full title – will launch on the website along with her friends, Doc Holliday and Diesel Dyke. But then of course here comes the ever frigid people of the homophobic community with their banners and loud voices screaming: "You-will-burn-in-hell-for-the-abomination-that-you're-doing" crap. I mean geez it's not as if lesbian mothers would be in line in an instant buying the said doll to immediately give it to their children at home?! In case the said homophobes did not quite get it right, the said dolls are for mature ages only (and no, you ingrates do not belong in it) Besides, there are two kinds of the Bobbie doll - the regular one and the pleasure-giving one. I wonder if I should buy one and give it to my partner? But I digress!

So with the creation of Bobbie and the other dykes, does that mean that she would eventually be paired up with Barbie? Poor Barbie! Now she's going to have to deal wth an identity crisis!

I say I'd go for Bobbie for summer,

maybe Doc Holliday for winter or

Diesel Dyke
for the rest of the year as if everyday is a holiday!
Here ladies and gentlemen is Accessory # 1
And of course, Accessory # 2
