I was listening to Radio 4's recent program Material Girls, comparing Madonna and Barbie as they both reach their fiftieth birthdays, and obviously the natural impulse was to go to the Barbie website.

And from there to the Barbie Collector website.

Where I came across Barbie as Medusa.

I know it's absolutely terrible of me, but part of me is in love.

Unfortunately I can't find any easy theme of 'Barbie as figures from classical myth' dolls to see what else they've done, but I suppose it's rather obvious that Medusa would be a reasonably obvious choice with decent name recognition for the non-classicists out there.

I know, the hair's all wrong. This is not the point.

Hem.

Edit: Because [livejournal.com profile] owlfish is better at searching for things than me, I can now give you Grecian Goddess Barbie, Princess of Ancient Greece™ Barbie and the Classical Goddess™ Collection.

I sense a reception paper coming on.
