6 Times The Whole ‘Barbie’ Thing Got Ridiculously Out Of Hand.
It may be hard to believe but Barbie has been around for more than half a century. She has been a vital part of the toy industry since her debut at the Toy Fair in New York in 1959. The anatomically incorrect doll has delved in every possible career, such as astronaut, police officer, doctor, and George Washington.
Critics argue Barbie has distorted beauty standards in little girls; a negative impact that follows them well into adulthood. Here is a list of people who took things too far with their extreme need to imitate Barbie.
#1. Azusa Sakamoto.
When Azusa was only 15 years old, she became obsessed with American culture. Part of her love for everything Americana, included Barbie. She began buying and collecting everything she could get her hands that had to do with the famous doll. She left her native Japan for sunny California. She owns a Barbie themed nail salon in Los Angeles. She estimates she has spent over $70,000 on Barbie clothes, toys, accessories, and anything she can get her hands on.
