Barbie, that lovely yet absurdly, uh, generously proportioned princess of the doll kingdom, was introduced to the world on March 9th, 1959. She has sparked imaginations for more than 50 years, so of course she gets her own day.
You see the commercials all over TV. Combine that with my love for the movie Labyrinth and I just had to get a Fushigi. Basically, it's just a metallic orb inside an acrylic sphere. That's right, it's a ball inside another ball. Still, I picked one up and shared it with my workmates.
