Barbie Just Wants to Have Fun

We all must be getting old when Cyndi Lauper is considered a nostalgic collectible. I usually don't cover Barbie dolls, but when I heard about this, I had to show you this little throwback to the late great 1980's. The Barbie Cyndi Lauper doll features the classic outfit she wore in her first music video "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and ships in January of 2010. It's part of Barbie's "Women of the 1980's" line. I wonder what version of Madonna they will do. If you want to order one of these - and I don't want to know why - just click here.
