Barbie Gets A Pedicure (And Some New Feet)

The cruel footbinders at Mattel have finally given Barbie feet that can actually hold on to her many, many pairs of do-me heels. Cali Barbie will arrive in the spring with newly designed "natural toes" with a pink pedicure. It's part of the Barbie "Life Makeover" which started this year and included a break-up with Ken, a new boyfriend (Blaine, the Australian zine-writing surfer), and a new career in politics. For the foot enthusiasts out there, no word on if Cali Barbie will come with a mani-pedi kit or any other accessories.

No need to wait for spring to get a Cali Barbie, though, she is already available (with unnatural, messed up feet) and comes with a piercer and 16 pairs of earrings. And Cali Barbie's Chevy SSR comes with a real CD player in the trunk that plays through the vehicle's speakers.
Barbie's Press Release.

High-maintenance, shallow dolls.
