The 19 Most Ridiculously Awesome Things About This 1991 Barbie Catalog

All I have to say is: It's good to be Barbie. And, yes, for the record, life in plastic is indeed fantastic.

1. United Colors of Benetton Barbie. What, you didn't think Barbie would shop at the Gap like some common mall shopper, did you? NOPE. Barbie is INTERNATIONAL. She only shops at the finest mall stores.

8. Of course Barbie knows the only way to impress your friends (aka make them jealous of your fabulousness) is to own your own hamburger stand. I mean you need a cool hangout spot.

And you know Ken has to get behind the counter and grill up those burgers! 'Cause Barbie does not get her hands dirty.

9. What's better than a hamburger stand? Your own concession stand -- which I'm assuming is part of her own private movie theater, which is SOLD SEPARATELY.

11. Poor Barbie, always a bridesmaid, never the bride. Also, should Midge really be wearing white? (Admit it, you were thinking the same thing.)

16. And when Barbie really wants to relax and get away from it all, she has her own motorhome. Which comes with its own beauty and makeup center, 'cause just because you're camping doesn't mean you should slouch on the glamour.

18. Of course, after all that skiing, Barbie needs her own Swiss Chalet hot chocolate shop.

And, yes, Ken BETTER get behind the counter and make Barbie her hot chocolate! BARBIE DOES NOT GET HER HANDS DIRTY.
