Hmmm

Really hard to work with though.

Barbie’s shoes were notoriously shoddy and ill-fitting, but the boots stayed where they were supposed to, and for that reason we’ve still got two of them, rather than just the one sad shoe phenomenon. (My barbie case is full of shoe orphans!)

It’s really sad. There’s not much action in her, because when you lose both Barbie legs, you lose the glutes too, so she can’t even really sit!

Seriously, I believe the correct term is amputee, not paraplegic. Perhaps you could turn her into an Aimee Mullins action figure?

Maybe I’ll just send you the cellphone…! :)

(Only because I don’t think I’ll have too many opportunities to wear a red knitted ice skating costume trimmed with angora.) And sis–yes, disability studies are hot, so get going on the next cultural studies “big thing!”
