I played with Barbies, so I certainly wouldn't steer my future daughter away from playing with Barbies because of my feminist views. But I would MUCH rather steer her toward playing with Queen Elizabeth I in Barbie form than with Malibu Barbie.
Today, renaissance fairs celebrate life in England during the reign of Elizabeth I, which led to the flowering of the English Renaissance. Renaissance Faire Barbie® doll embodies the heart and style of these fairs. Her powder blue dress with golden trim and white accents capture the time period perfectly. Long flowing blond locks and sweet expression add to the doll’s allure.
