Those of you from Mattel who’ve never seen Barbie advertised to adults might want to check out this photo I took of the Barbie display in Tokyo, Japan.
The Japanese love this stuff. Women dress… well… often like Barbie dolls. And it’s kinda hot in a nasty school girl kinda way I suppose. I mean, seriously: Check out some of the styles featured in the photo below. And there was a lot more where that came from – much of which I saw on the streets below. (This by the way was in a major department store called Isetan, on the 7th floor of a 12-15 story building with a basement.
And yes, that’s me holding on to the bag of fashions my wife bought. I was dying for a chair to sit in.
