Barbie is proven to be unrealistic
If you were a young girl that grew up before the new millennium came around, chances are you owned a Barbie doll (or twenty.) The first Barbie was put on shelves in 1959 and became the ideal image for all young girls and women. Nowadays, two Barbie dolls are sold every second in the world. As impressive as that statistic may seem, Barbie’s days of popularity may be numbered. Today’s standards of beauty no longer align with Barbie’s image and sales are falling fast.
The young ladies at Girls Rock Math Camp in Seattle, Washington used their talents and found that Barbie’s large head and bust, along with her tiny waist and neck, make her mathematically uneven.
Well this makes me feel a little bit better…
Kids at a math camp discovered that if Barbie was a real person, her body proportions would limit her to walking on all fours.
