Generation Girl Barbie

Generation Girl Barbie Booklet

The Generation Girl line, like dolls before and since, was centred around an imaginary high school. The six characters at launch all came from different countries, converging at International High School in New York. The idea was supplemented with the mini print magazines issued with the dolls, and the ezine run on the Generation Girl website.

The second wave introduced two new characters, Blaine Gordon from New York and Mari Nakano from Tokyo. Wave three was one of my favourite Barbie moves of all time - each doll came with its own bedroom set. After that the line came to an end, Mattel going back to the drawing board to find a suitable reboot to do battle with MGA's new Bratz dolls...

The launch wave consisted of six dolls, with Lara, Tori and Marissa being renamed Marie, Vicky and Ana, respectively, for some territories. The dolls quickly courted controversy because - shock gasp horror - Barbie had an ankle tattoo, Chelsie came with a nose stud, and Tori had no less than three earrings in her left ear.

Mattel caved within days and reissued dolls lost the offending features.

    1. Side note, one of the interesting things about Blaine is he became Barbie's romantic interest for a short period of time because officially Ken and Barbie had broken up (don't worry, they've since reunited if you didn't know). I'm glad she got to play the field but I'm also happy she didn't stay playing. Also, I have heard that the Blaine face mold hasn't ever been used for any other doll but I don't know about the validity of that claim.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
