So creepy!... Barbie's proportions brought to life: 5'9" 110lbs 39" bust, 18" waist, 33"hips....• There are two Barbie dolls sold every second in the world. • The target market for Barbie doll sales is young girls ages 3-12 years of age. • A girl usually has her first Barbie by age 3, and collects a total of seven dolls during her childhood. • Over a billion dollars worth of Barbie dolls and accessories were sold in 1993, making this doll big business and one of the top 10 toys sold. • If Barbie were an actual women, she would be 5'9" tall, have a 39" bust, an 18" waist, 33" hips and a size 3 shoe. • Barbie calls this a "full figure" and likes her weight at 110 lbs. • At 5'9" tall and weighing 110 lbs, Barbie would have a BMI of 16.24 and fit the weight criteria for anorexia. She likely would not menstruate. • If Barbie was a real woman, she'd have to walk on all fours due to her proportions. • Slumber Party Barbie was introduced in 1965 and came with a bathroom scale permanently set at 110 lbs with a book entitled "How to Lose Weight" with directions inside stating simply "Don't eat."Heather Lenza
