If your secret wish is to be Barbie, you now have a chance, but only if you are a little girl. Barbie, the doll, is now Barbie, the fashion designer. The plastic fashion plate now has Barbie for Girls, a moderately priced line of clothes sizes 4 to 6X and 7 to 14 hair accessories, home furnishings, handbags and beauty products that will be in stores in plenty of time for back-to-school shopping.
The look is, of course, glittery, pink, playful and as glamorous as a girl can be. Just ask Mom to buy you a new Barbie doll because a 20-page Barbie for Girls catalog is included in new doll boxes. Or perhaps you may convince your elder to release some disposable income at Sears, Kids R Us and children's specialty stores.
