    Day to night Barbie getting reissued!!!

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    It wouldn't surprise me. Day to Night Barbie is one of the more iconic and popular dolls of the Superstar era. After all the endless bubble cut and ponytail reissues and homages, it's just nice to see the 80s kids get some love from Mattel once in a while.

    I forgot to mention, if the parody is a direct jab at Day to Night Barbie there's quite a few things they get wrong. Day to Night Barbie wasn't popular because she got a new hat. Day to Night Barbie resonated with the culture of the time of more women entering the work force. Day to Night Barbie was also the first Barbie to have a transformable outfit. This added a whole new play feature as well as the value of having two separate looks for Barbie, right out of the box, without having to purchase an additional fashion.
