Mattel just reached a whole new level of AWESOME!

Growing up as the only girl in a family of 4 children definitely brought out the tomboy in me as a child. I loved taking part in sports, lizard collecting, go-cart racing and helping my carpenter/engineer grandfather out in his workshop where he made furniture in his spare time. It was often an ordeal trying to get me out of wearing boys clothes let alone getting me to wear earrings or jewellry. Perhaps the only thing girlie about me was my love of Barbies! I never was given accessories such as the barbie dream car or extra clothes so I would ask my grandmother to sew outfits for them and often stitched some up myself using the off cuts of garments she created. Such fond memories of my love for creating and daydreaming! 
So, when I found out Mattel recently released its Farrah Fawcett doll in honour of the late 70's icon, I was floored! The Farrah Fawcet barbie is posing in that famous red swimsuit, with that amazing smile, with that fabulous head of hair! Many have tried to replicate but in my eyes, no-one does it better than this! True retro legend. I need to get my paws on one...and for as little as $35.00 aud, I might just ;)!
