Watching Barbie Life in the Dreamhouse. The show is about Barbie (of course) her sisters, friends, Ken and this ridiculously amazing dream house.
I find a few things interesting.
One. That they are dolls. And are aware of it. So at times there is assembly required. Like when Ken got Barbie her car. Or that some of the items come with the weird handle that loops on to Barbies hand. Allowing her to hold hair brushes and tennis rackets. Some of her more infamous outfits are stored in blister packs. And can we say that they're shoulder sockets are amazing.
Two. A testimate of the times, the cartoon mocks how reality shows are shot. Complete with each characters own confessional couch.
Three. Skipper and her awesome purple stripe and teenage angst.
And lastly the episodes are extremely reminiscent of the 90s comics. Each episode definitely has a feel-good, learn to be an awesome person/friend moment. Though, the cartoon seems to be a little more outlandish, playing on the ridiculousness of being Barbie. Like how old Barbie really is, how many careers she's had, her endless closet and the fact that there's a button, switch or lever that expands, flips, or spins an upgrade to the home.
