Zombie Attack Barbie!: Zombie of the Week

Posted by Grey Friday, December 2, 2011

This week, Barbie goes to war... against the undead.

Ever the perky and demure icon in the fashion doll world, Barbie has once again move on to the next pop culture phenomenon in a never-ending effort to ahead of the curve and this time, the queen of toy dolls joins the war against the undead!

Created by artist Sarah Anne Langton, the "Zombie Attack Barbie!" is dressed for success, complete with standard-issue weaponry against the undead like bazooka and grenades, available in pink.

In the artist's own words:

From the 1950s onwards girls were encouraged to hone their zombie slaughtering skills in preparation for the inevitable apocalypse. Though young ladies dispose of the undead with ease today, toys such as Mattel’s 1962 ‘Zombie Attack Barbie’ were instrumental in helping to habituate girls to a new social norm where zombie disposal would become a very necessary life skill.

Now a collectors item ‘Zombie Attack Barbie’ played a salient role in ensuring the survival of countless young girls who grew up ready and willing to slaughter the zombie menace. This much loved toy still holds fond memories for so many of the lovely ladies from our Zombie Clearance Squads today.


Now all we need now is the full-blown, half-brained (we are not quite sure if he has been this way all the while) Zombie Ken promised on the package.
