On page 487 of the JCPenney's Christmas Catalog, there is, in LIVING color, a Grecian Goddess Barbie Doll; retail price $60. We now have representations of The Goddess -- anatomically incorrect, of course -- courtesy of Mattel.
Which got me to thinking, why should Mattel stop there? Why not go on and manufacture a whole line of Pagan/New Age barbie dolls? What better way to get the masses to accept what we do than to appeal to the little ones of the world?
So here's a proposed line of New Age Barbie Dolls for Mattel to consider...
